Kim Vogel Sawyer is one of my favorite authors when it comes to fiction about the Mennonites so I knew I needed to read “Ours for a Season.”
This was a little different from some of the other books I’ve read in this genre as far as content goes. We see a married couple who have a struggling marriage after losing a baby and finding out they won’t be able to have children of their own. A woman who is a fighter and a desire to watch her dreams come true only to find out she has cancer. There is also a major theme about anti-human trafficking and abused teens.
The entire way through readers will find themselves wondering if these characters are going to find the healing they need, how will it affect their futures, and what are God’s plans for this situation?
This may just be fiction, but Kim Vogel Sawyer definitely challenges her readers and makes one think about the hard things. It is a roller-coaster of emotions as well. This is a beautiful and poignant story that is both heartbreaking and hopeful.
