Book Review - When Hope Blossoms by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Publisher's Blurb: Amy Knackstedt hopes a new start in Weaverly, Kansas, will help heal the pain of losing her husband and provide a better future for her three children. But her new neighbor, Tim Roper, is not pleased to have an Old Order Mennonite family living next to his apple orchard. Tim left the Mennonite faith years ago and doesn't want any reminders of his former life.
Yet when circumstances throw Amy and Tim together, they form a friendship that surprises them both. Will past hurts always be a barrier between them, or will this tentative relationship blossom into something more?

My Review: I really enjoyed this book. The story was fast-flowing and interesting. I enjoyed all the characters. The "curmudgeniness" of Tim the neighbour, the sweet funny Adrianna as well the others, they are all easily relatable to.

I liked how it pointed out the differences between the Mennonite's and the rest of the world, but didn't make life seem too difficult for them. The Mennonite's were flexible with adapting yet staying within their beliefs.

I would definitely recommend this book to others.
