Author Kim Vogel Sawyer

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing
Fields Of Grace Bethany House (October 2009)
by Kim Vogel Sawyer

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Best-selling, award-winning author Kim Vogel Sawyer is a wife, mother, grandmother, author, speaker, singer of songs and lover of chocolate... but most importantly, she's a born-again child of the King!
A former elementary school teacher, Kim closed her classroom door in 2005 to follow God's call on her heart to write and speak. Now blessed with multiple writing contracts with Bethany House, Barbour, and Zondervan Publishing, Kim enjoys sharing her journey to publication as well as the miraculous story of her healing from a life-long burden of pain and shame.
Kim's gentle yet forthright testimony lends credence to the promise of Ps. 117:2--"Great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever."

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Will their Mennonite faith be shaken or strengthened by the journey to a new land?
With their eldest son nearly to the age when he will be drafted into military service, Reinhardt and Lillian Vogt decide to immigrate to America, the land of liberty, with their three sons and Reinhardt's adopted brother, Eli. But when tragedy strikes during the voyage, Lillian and Eli are forced into an agreement neither desires.
Determined to fulfill his obligation to Reinhardt, Eli plans to see Lillian and her sons safely settled on their Kansas homestead--and he's equally determined that the boys will be reared in the Mennonite faith. What he doesn't expect is his growing affection for Lillian--and the deep desire to be part of a family.

This sounds interesting. Reading about the Mennonite faith would, of course, be interesting, but I'm more intrigued by the conflict inherent in the book.

There are so many cultures (sometimes religions do form a little culture of their own) in the US. We tend to think of ourselves as "one nation, indivisible." Maybe indivisible, but certainly also varied.

My novel, This Is the Place, is also about one of these cultures. It is set in Salt Lake City in the late 1950s and the protagonist goes back to examine how many women in her family handled the same problem she is facing--including one of her polygamist grandparents.

Maybe we should be promoting these books together! (-: Mine is quite old (2001) and won eight awards way back there. It may be time for a resurgence.

Best,

Multiple publishing contracts - Kim is obviously doing something right! This sounds like a very interesting book from a very interesting author.
