- A Story of Hope by Maureen on 4/29/2013
What a great reminder of a sad time in American History. When the truths are finally presented, still there were some who didn't believe. I'm talking about the atrocious acts that Germany committed during WWII. This is a heartwarming story of how a few people sacrificed their own lives to help the Jewish people, people without a Country.
Ms Sawyer has dealt with some tough subjects here. First the hiding in the Press of what was really going on in Europe. We have a bit of romance, at long distance, the love a sweet little boy. One that you would do just about anything for, to protect him. We have the realities of drug addition, the slowly tearing down and ruining of a life.
Throughout the book you find the blessings of the Lord on those who follow him. These people lead their lives as God wants them to, not how they want. There is Dr Micah, who wants to give his gift of doctoring, to those immigrants who need help and can't afford it. His brother, a polio victim, Jeremiah, a crippled Minister who is in the War zone, and helps God's people.
We have Lydia, who loves a little boy so much, that she ends up helping the person who is trying to take him away for her.
If you read one book this year, this one has it all, take a trip back to the 1940's in both NYC and Boston, I'm glad I did!
