Helpful Score: 1

Mennonite widow Amy Knackstedt and her three children have moved to Weaverly, Kansas to try to get a fresh start after the death of her husband. As they settle into the old farm house they bought, they discover that they have a new neighbor who runs an orchard on the property next to theirs. The children take to Tim Roper immediately and a friendship slowly develops between all of them. Amy is surprised to learn that Tim is a former Mennonite who has left the faith and is dealing with his own loss in the form of his dead wife and son. As these two neighbors interact they begin to find a comfort from each other that they never expected and a wonderful relationship develops.

When I pick up a Kim Vogel Sawyer book I can rest assured that it will be a moving experience. I have never read one of her books that was not good, but I do believe that When Hope Blossoms is the best one yet. I simply loved this book. It is a story of love and family; of mistakes made and forgiveness given; of reconciliations and compassion. This is a story that touches your emotions and stays in your mind long after you have read it. This is definitely a must read!
