Sweet Sanctuary Book Review

Sweet Sanctuary by Kim Vogel Sawyer is a sweet story set in 1944.

A Story of Hope and Love from Bestselling Author Kim Vogel Sawyer
Lydia Eldredge longs to provide a sanctuary for her son, Nicky. But a constant threat comes from Nicky's drug-addicted father, who wants the boy and seems willing to do whatever it takes to get him.
Dr. Micah Hatcher serves the immigrant population in Queens, but under cover of darkness he provides another service that must not be discovered lest his and his brother's lives be in danger.
When Lydia and Micah's paths cross, they are suddenly wrapped up in each other's callings. Through unforeseen twists and turns, they seek a refuge of safety--for Nicky, for themselves, and for the needy people God unexpectedly puts in their lives. (Goodreads)

 Sweet Sanctuary is about a young boy, Nicky, who's father wants to sell him in order to continue his addiction to morphine. Only problem, the father doesn't know where Nicky is because he is safely in the arms of Lydia, the woman who has taken care of him since birth. Lydia's father has a plan and in steps Micah, the hero of the story. A sweet, yet typical love story develops, as does the plan on how to keep Nicky as Lydia's son.
 I enjoyed the historical aspect to this book as it talks about the second world war. Lydia makes a comment that she can't believe the man Hitler would kill his own countrymen. It's crazy to think about what it must have been like then and not really knowing what was really going on. 
This story also delves into the struggles of addiction, as Nicky's father is addicted to morphine. 

Overall, this is not my favorite book, it was hard for me to get into. That is just my opinion though, I know others really will love it!
