    Let me just say that I really loved this book! I have read many Kim Vogel Sawyer books over the years and I do believe this is her most powerful one to date. There is quite a bit going on in this book. There is a strong friendship bond between two women since childhood, one an Old Orde...

    You might want to have the tissues handy as you read this book, what a journey the author has given us. There are several subjects that are touched on and they are brought to the forefront by the author, and we are able to put faces on all of these. We walk in Marty?s shoes as she ...

    Not sure if Sawyer can write a bad book. I loved this one from the very beginning. I can wait for the next book. ...

    This was a lovely and inspirational story. I cried several times throughout and felt deep joy other times. This was a very emotional ride. The characters were so real and I grew to care about them and what happened to them. The subject of human trafficking and homeless teenagers was br...

    This one pulled me in page by page, with characters so well written you felt like you could see them, even the ones with the small parts. So much in this one is really heartfelt, Marty and Anthony?s not being able to have a child, Brook?s cancer and childhood and the troubled te...

    Let me start off by saying I LOVED this book! If you?re looking for a typical Mennonite book, this isn?t it. But, don?t let that keep you from reading it. The message is so powerful, and the story may just stick with you long after the final page (as it certainly will for me). ...

    Can I give this 10 stars? No one quite writes a story like Ms. Sawyer, as her characters wrap around your heart and leave you a better person when finished. You will definitely need tissues as you read about human trafficking, homeless teens, a woman?s brokenness over being childless...

    OURS FOR A SEASON is Ms. Sawyer's most recent novel. A Mennonite couple from Indiana relocate to a ghost town in Kansas... This story starts very slow. It kind of dragged at first, and I was getting tired of reading about Marty's woes, but it was a necessary part of character d...

    We meet Marty and her husband Anthony. We learn that they can not have biological children of there own. They seem to be having a hard time getting along. Marty seem to not be able to move on from the news and feeling likes something is missing. God seem to have bigger and better plan ...

    Kim Vogel Sawyer?s newest novel, Ours for a Season, is a inspirational, yet emotional story. This is a book that is just wonderful, yet full of emotions. I don't cry a lot during books, but several times throughout this book, I had tears coming down my face. Ms. Sawyer knows how to b...

    Kim Vogel Sawyer?s newest novel, Ours for a Season, is an atypical Mennonite story. Marty and Anthony Hirschler, unable to have children, are floundering in their marriage. Neither knows how to cross the ever-widening chasm that is growing. Marty?s best friend since childhood...

    Another great book by Kim Vogel Sawyer. It is a story about a Old Order Mennonite community Mary and her husband Anthony lose a child and was told she would never have more. Her husband Anthony is in construction and travels a lot which puts a strain on there marriage. When her friend ...

    Title: Ours for a Season Author: Kim Vogel Sawyer Pages: 338 (ARC) Year: 2018 Publisher: Waterbrook My rating is 4 out of 5 stars. Marty and Brooke have been friends since grade school, but for the last several years they have communicated by letters as Brooke moved to Kansas Cit...

    Our?s for a Season is such an awesome read. I love that author Kim Vogel Sawyer puts a different twist on Amish and Mennonite stories! Anthony and Marty Hirschler are unable to have children, which is not a good thinking for a couple in the Mennonite community where having a big fami...

    Sawyer writes a new kind of story with Ours for a Season! This isn't your typical conservative Christian book; instead, it will stretch your ideas of what Christians can do and how - and with whom - we should interact. I love the way that Sawyer created main characters who were ultr...

    'Would this fear be her companion for the next several months?' I was a bit hesitant to read this book because I'm not an Amish/Mennonite fan. But this is very far from the typical Mennonite book. I've enjoyed Kim Vogel Sawyer's books and I read it on the strength of her name alone....

    Anthony and Marty find they can?t have children and Marty is drifting from her faith in the old order Mennonite sect. Anthony spends all his time with his construction business. Marty?s old school friend Brooke, sends a letter wanting Anthony to come restore a Kansas ghost town int...

    I spent the weekend unable to put this book down for very long. This story of Marty, Anthony and Brooke drew me in and kept me reading on. This book does tackle some difficult subjects but Kim Vogel Sawyer handles them so well. I received this book from the publisher. I was not requ...

    A heartfelt story with a lot of spiritual and emotional depth. Characters whose lives take unexpected turns, struggle with their inner turmoil and search for peace and meaning in their lives.This is a multi layered novel, starting out a bit slow, but picking up the pace as they get inv...

    What a beautiful story!  Interesting how the childless Mennonites worked around the moral issues and trusted God to show them the way, and how He blessed them. Brooke is a hoot, and I loved the way she and Marty interacted. I don't want to give anything away.....but this is n...

    This is a very well written book about how a Mennonite couple got involved in helping girls that were kidnapped for human trafficking. This was the first book I read by this author but it won't be the last. Thank you NetGalley for an ARC copy in exchange for a honest review. ...

    Ours for a Season was not a normal Amish Romance for some reason I could not connect to the characters, however I finished it but it felt like it took forever to get thru. ...

    Ours For a Season (2018) by Kim Vogel Sawyer is a phenomenal stand-alone novel. This book comes in all forms including eBook, and is 352 pages in length. With a full-time job and a very busy six-year old at home, this novel took me six days to read. I received a copy of this book in A...

    Marty has grown quite discontent, and even angry, with both God and her husband, Anthony. She was a happily married Old Order Mennonite young woman, until the fateful day when the doctor pronounced that Anthony would never father any children due to him having the mumps. Marty stopped ...

    Ours For A Season by Kim Vogel Sawyer ? 5 Stars! I?ve always liked the author Kim Vogel Sawyer, this book was just another of hers that had me after the first couple of pages. She writes often about the Amish or Mennonite people. This book was about a couple who were part of a Men...

    Can I give this 10 stars? No one quite writes a story like Ms. Sawyer, as her characters wrap around your heart and leave you a better person when finished. You will definitely need tissues as you read about human trafficking, homeless teens, a woman?s brokenness over being childless...

    OURS FOR A SEASON is Ms. Sawyer's most recent novel. A Mennonite couple from Indiana relocate to a ghost town in Kansas... This story starts very slow. It kind of dragged at first, and I was getting tired of reading about Marty's woes, but it was a necessary part of character d...

    We meet Marty and her husband Anthony. We learn that they can not have biological children of there own. They seem to be having a hard time getting along. Marty seem to not be able to move on from the news and feeling likes something is missing. God seem to have bigger and better plan ...

    Kim Vogel Sawyer?s newest novel, Ours for a Season, is a inspirational, yet emotional story. This is a book that is just wonderful, yet full of emotions. I don't cry a lot during books, but several times throughout this book, I had tears coming down my face. Ms. Sawyer knows how to b...

    Kim Vogel Sawyer?s newest novel, Ours for a Season, is an atypical Mennonite story. Marty and Anthony Hirschler, unable to have children, are floundering in their marriage. Neither knows how to cross the ever-widening chasm that is growing. Marty?s best friend since childhood...

    Another great book by Kim Vogel Sawyer. It is a story about a Old Order Mennonite community Mary and her husband Anthony lose a child and was told she would never have more. Her husband Anthony is in construction and travels a lot which puts a strain on there marriage. When her friend ...

    Our?s for a Season is such an awesome read. I love that author Kim Vogel Sawyer puts a different twist on Amish and Mennonite stories! Anthony and Marty Hirschler are unable to have children, which is not a good thinking for a couple in the Mennonite community where having a big fami...

    'Would this fear be her companion for the next several months?' I was a bit hesitant to read this book because I'm not an Amish/Mennonite fan. But this is very far from the typical Mennonite book. I've enjoyed Kim Vogel Sawyer's books and I read it on the strength of her name alone....

    Anthony and Marty find they can?t have children and Marty is drifting from her faith in the old order Mennonite sect. Anthony spends all his time with his construction business. Marty?s old school friend Brooke, sends a letter wanting Anthony to come restore a Kansas ghost town int...

    Let me just say that I really loved this book! I have read many Kim Vogel Sawyer books over the years and I do believe this is her most powerful one to date. There is quite a bit going on in this book. There is a strong friendship bond between two women since childhood, one an Old Orde...

    You might want to have the tissues handy as you read this book, what a journey the author has given us. There are several subjects that are touched on and they are brought to the forefront by the author, and we are able to put faces on all of these. We walk in Marty?s shoes as she ...

    Not sure if Sawyer can write a bad book. I loved this one from the very beginning. I can wait for the next book. ...

    This was a lovely and inspirational story. I cried several times throughout and felt deep joy other times. This was a very emotional ride. The characters were so real and I grew to care about them and what happened to them. The subject of human trafficking and homeless teenagers was br...

    This one pulled me in page by page, with characters so well written you felt like you could see them, even the ones with the small parts. So much in this one is really heartfelt, Marty and Anthony?s not being able to have a child, Brook?s cancer and childhood and the troubled te...

    Let me start off by saying I LOVED this book! If you?re looking for a typical Mennonite book, this isn?t it. But, don?t let that keep you from reading it. The message is so powerful, and the story may just stick with you long after the final page (as it certainly will for me). ...

    Can I give this 10 stars? No one quite writes a story like Ms. Sawyer, as her characters wrap around your heart and leave you a better person when finished. You will definitely need tissues as you read about human trafficking, homeless teens, a woman?s brokenness over being childless...

    OURS FOR A SEASON is Ms. Sawyer's most recent novel. A Mennonite couple from Indiana relocate to a ghost town in Kansas... This story starts very slow. It kind of dragged at first, and I was getting tired of reading about Marty's woes, but it was a necessary part of character d...

    We meet Marty and her husband Anthony. We learn that they can not have biological children of there own. They seem to be having a hard time getting along. Marty seem to not be able to move on from the news and feeling likes something is missing. God seem to have bigger and better plan ...

    Kim Vogel Sawyer?s newest novel, Ours for a Season, is a inspirational, yet emotional story. This is a book that is just wonderful, yet full of emotions. I don't cry a lot during books, but several times throughout this book, I had tears coming down my face. Ms. Sawyer knows how to b...

    An Old Order Mennonite couple's vows and beliefs are challenged in this stirring contemporary novel for fans of Cindy Woodsmall or Shelley Shepherd Gray. Reading Ms. Sawyer's story woven around members of an Old Order Mennonite community helps this reader grasp some of the similarit...

    Kim Vogel Sawyer?s newest novel, Ours for a Season, is an atypical Mennonite story. Marty and Anthony Hirschler, unable to have children, are floundering in their marriage. Neither knows how to cross the ever-widening chasm that is growing. Marty?s best friend since childhood...

    Another great book by Kim Vogel Sawyer. It is a story about a Old Order Mennonite community Mary and her husband Anthony lose a child and was told she would never have more. Her husband Anthony is in construction and travels a lot which puts a strain on there marriage. When her friend ...

    Title: Ours for a Season Author: Kim Vogel Sawyer Pages: 338 (ARC) Year: 2018 Publisher: Waterbrook My rating is 4 out of 5 stars. Marty and Brooke have been friends since grade school, but for the last several years they have communicated by letters as Brooke moved to Kansas Cit...

    Our?s for a Season is such an awesome read. I love that author Kim Vogel Sawyer puts a different twist on Amish and Mennonite stories! Anthony and Marty Hirschler are unable to have children, which is not a good thinking for a couple in the Mennonite community where having a big fami...

    Sawyer writes a new kind of story with Ours for a Season! This isn't your typical conservative Christian book; instead, it will stretch your ideas of what Christians can do and how - and with whom - we should interact. I love the way that Sawyer created main characters who were ultr...

    'Would this fear be her companion for the next several months?' I was a bit hesitant to read this book because I'm not an Amish/Mennonite fan. But this is very far from the typical Mennonite book. I've enjoyed Kim Vogel Sawyer's books and I read it on the strength of her name alone....

    Anthony and Marty find they can?t have children and Marty is drifting from her faith in the old order Mennonite sect. Anthony spends all his time with his construction business. Marty?s old school friend Brooke, sends a letter wanting Anthony to come restore a Kansas ghost town int...

    I spent the weekend unable to put this book down for very long. This story of Marty, Anthony and Brooke drew me in and kept me reading on. This book does tackle some difficult subjects but Kim Vogel Sawyer handles them so well. I received this book from the publisher. I was not requ...

    A heartfelt story with a lot of spiritual and emotional depth. Characters whose lives take unexpected turns, struggle with their inner turmoil and search for peace and meaning in their lives.This is a multi layered novel, starting out a bit slow, but picking up the pace as they get inv...

    What a beautiful story!  Interesting how the childless Mennonites worked around the moral issues and trusted God to show them the way, and how He blessed them. Brooke is a hoot, and I loved the way she and Marty interacted. I don't want to give anything away.....but this is n...

    Ours for a Season was not a normal Amish Romance for some reason I could not connect to the characters, however I finished it but it felt like it took forever to get thru. ...
