Room for Hope is another fantastic novel by Kim Vogel Sawyer. I really enjoy the way to she’s able to intertwine historical fact with a captivating story. This book is no exception. Neva’s story is an interesting one and it’s told in a way that draws the reader in. it’s as if you find yourself right there with the characters feeling their emotions and joining in their story. Readers of historical fiction will not regret adding this book to their shelves.
