Author Kim Vogel Sawyer has been my favorite author for quite some time, and each time I read another book written by her I'm reminded of why she's my favorite!
The Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy Series follows members of an Old Order Mennonite family who live in Kansas. Book 1 is When Mercy Rains and is excellent. I recently finished reading Book 2, When Grace Sings, and highly recommend it. The only problem was that a couple of nights I stayed up way too late reading, because I wanted to find out what happened next!
When Grace Sings follows the story of Alexa Zimmerman as she's running a B&B in her grandmother's home. A Chicago tabloid reporter, Briley Forrester, arrives for an extended stay at the B&B. Alexa is unaware of Briley's hidden motives for being in her community. The events become even more interesting when Alexa agrees to host her cousin Anna Grace, who is engaged to Steven, a young man with a hidden dream.
These characters came alive for me as I read this book---another reason I love Kim Vogel Sawyer's stories. She has a talent for creating believable characters that you find yourself truly caring about!
Now I'm eager to read Book 3 when it comes out, and I highly recommend this series.

Hi Cat Mom and Jeanne! Yes, I agree. I was inspired to read Kim Vogel Sawyer's Echo's of Mercy by your post. It is downloaded on my Nook and it is my reward for walking on the treadmill! :) It is truly a reward too! I love this novel so much. I'm not all the way done. (One can only walk so much at a time on the treadmill!)I read and posted a report on "The Dandelion Field" by Kathryn Springer on my! I hope you can come and see! :) It has been so long since I've been blog-visiting! It's good to be back!
