Item description for Where Willows Grow by Kim Vogel Sawyer...

Anna Mae is left to hold everything together when her husband takes a new government job out of town that he hopes will provide enough cash for them to keep their farm.

Publishers Description
Her heart aches for his return... but is the distance between them measured by more than miles?
Anna Mae isn't sure her husband is being completely honest about his job with the Works Progress Administration. They're building a castle? In Kansas? Harley promised he'd be at the worksite only long enough to earn enough cash to keep their farm. But the money hasn't arrived, and Anna Mae fears Harley may be gone for good.
Harley Phipps has never been a man in need of luxuries, but he wants to do right by his wife and two little girls. He was about to lose all he'd worked for if he didn't do something--there was no way he could pass up the government job, even if it meant leaving his family for a while. Anna Mae was awful mad when he sold the mules, packed his bag, and headed out. If only she'd send him a short note to let him know she and the girls are all right...

More About Kim Vogel Sawyer

Kim Vogel Sawyer Thank you for stopping by! I hope you find a welcome here. As an author of inspirational Christian fiction, it is my goal to create stories that will edify God's children and offer evidence of the hope we can all possess when we place our hearts and souls in God's very capable hands. I've been asked..."Why fiction?" And the answer is simple: Even Jesus told stories to help His followers understand Who He was and His purpose for coming to earth. A story can draw one in and make an impact. Before I commit words to paper (or computer!), I spend time in God's Word and in prayer. I believe my stories aren't truly "mine," but are a joint effort between myself and the God I serve. I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit. Make yourself at home! Sign the guestbook or send a friend by, if you like. And may God bless you muchly as you journey with Him!

where willows grow  Feb 16, 2010

--  Aug 25, 2009
When you open the pages of this book, you are transported back in time to 1936 Kansas. It's a hard time with the Great Depression compounded by the Dust Bowl. It's been years since there's been rain. In order to save his family, Harley Phipps must leave them to take a job with the WPA. A job building a castle ... in Kansas. While he's gone he asks his neighbor to watch over his wife Anna Mae and his two daughters.

Anna Mae is unsure she wants to be watched over by her neighbor Jack even though they grew up together. Jack had wanted to marry her but she was already in love with Harley. Now Harley's been gone, and she's only heard from him once. How can she keep the farm without income from him?

This book has Kim Sawyer's signature depth of characterization. As the reader, I quickly fell in love with Anna and her struggles. The characters were rich and diverse. Harley is a man who has pulled himself up and works hard to support his family. Jack has a successful dairy farm, but is focused on the love that's been denied him. Dirk is a man who will teach Harley what sacrifice is about. And Anna is a woman trying to make the best of an impossible situation.

I also love the way Kim makes the setting come alive. She pulls together unknown pieces of Kansas history that add richness and depth to the plot. I also enjoyed the fact that this book was set during the Depression. This has been a time period that has been overlooked by many historical authors, yet Kim makes it come to life in a manner that kept me engaged from page one.

The book is also filled with spiritual themes without becoming too preachy. Harley is unsaved in the beginning, despite Anna's efforts. Because of people like Dirk and his boss Mr. Peterson, his heart softens over time. And Anna struggles with trusting God to provide for her and the girls. Anyone who's ever struggled to relinquish control, can relate to her struggles. I know I can!

There were a couple times I thought I could anticipate where Kim was taking the plot. What I expected to be predictable often had a twist I couldn't see. And not all the plotlines ended perfectly. In that way, the book mirrors life where everything doesn't wrap up in perfect packages.

If you enjoy historical novels set in a unique time period, you will enjoy this book.

Where the Willows Grow  May 29, 2009
Where the Willows grow is a strong story about love and the tests it is put through. Set in the Great Depression, this story sheds a light on the true struggles that families faced on a daily basis. Anna Mae and Harvey have two beautiful children; the problem is they can barely find enough food to feed them. When Harvey learns that a man wants to build a castle he jumps on the chance to provide money for his family. He leaves Anna Mae and his girls in the hands of a trusted friend. The problems begin when Harvey doesn't receive letters from his wife, nor does she receive letters from him. They both believe that they have fallen out of love. It is only by God's grace that this family will be brought together. This is a wonderful story that I enjoyed reading very much.
poignant and beautiful...  Nov 19, 2007

In 1936, the drought in Kansas took a toll on just about everything. Anna Mae's marriage was no exception. Doubt assails her when her husband Harley leaves to take a government job, and temptation comes to tempt her in the form of her former beau, Jack Berkeley. Anna Mae must dig deep to find the fortitude and faith to get through it all.

Kim Vogel Sawyer has created a stunningly beautiful story in WHERE WILLOWS GROW. With a deftly intertwined message of faith in the face of adversity, Vogel Sawyer brings this poignant tale of unrelenting hope and undying love to vivid life. WHERE WILLOWS GROW will touch readers' hearts and deepen their faith, all the while bringing a smile, and perhaps a tear, to their faces. Vogel Sawyer's style flows smoothly, engaging readers completely and making this novel a non-stop reading experience.
