Ours For a Season

by: Kim Vogel Sawyer


About the Book

Pine Hill, Indiana

Marty Krieger Hirschler

Marty followed her husband to the front door, keeping enough distance between them to prevent bumping her knee against the bulky suitcase that hung from his hand.

Kim Vogel Sawyer is a new-to-me author. I have never read any of her books before. But this book sounds really good, and I am looking forward to reading it.

Have you read any of Kim Vogel Sawyer’s books? If so, which one is your favorite?

  1. Happy Friday!

    Today I shared the first line of one of my next reads In Another Time by Caroline Leech. It’s a YA historical romance set during WWII in the Scottish Highlands. Here, though, I’ll share something from the book I am currently reading, See All the Stars by Kit Frick. I’m on chapter 31 now so I’m going to share the first line of that chapter.

    I grabbed Jenni before fourth, on our way into the sky dome.

    Enjoy your weekend. May it be filled with great books 📚📚

  2. Good morning! I am sharing from THE DREAM DAUGHTER by Diane Chamberlain. She is a new author to me and this book is fascinating! It’s about time traveling, done to save the life of an unborn child. First sentence: “No one wanted to work with the man in the wheelchair.”

  3. For the second time in her life, Katie Beiler prayed for God to change His mind, to make His will reflect hers. But the click of her parents’ bedroom door, followed by her dat’s sad eyes and pasty complextion, told her it wasn’t to be.

    1. I totally almost missed the theme this week, too. But I accidentally clicked on the Hoarding Books button and it clicked on to the site. I just happened to see we had a theme. It was a total accident! Lol!
      Hope you have a fabulous weekend filled with great reading time, Trisha! 😃❤📚

  5. My First line is from Death At Thorburn Hall by Julianna Deering

    Madeline Farthering gripped her husband’s arm a little more tightly as they made their way through the mass of people crowding Waverley Station, certain that if they were separated in the chaos she’d never be able to find him again.

    I have read this series, I , too , missed the “ author you haven’t read yet”.

  6. Happy Friday! 😎

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading soon, Through the Autumn Air by Kelly Irvin…….

    At what point did a person realize that the special moments in life streak by in a flash, distilled into memories before they could be truly lived? Mary Katherine Ropp stood motionless in the middle of her kitchen, a platter holding a two-layer German chocolate cake covered in whipped cream cheese frosting nestled in her hands.

    Have an awesome weekend and happy reading!😊📚💖

  7. I’ve read a few of hers but not sure which is my favorite. I have this one on my TBR too though.
    The book I am sharing on my blog today is A Season to Dance by Patricia Beal but the book I’m currently reading is The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond by Jaime Jo Wright. Since it was my FLF last week I’ll share the first line from chapter 20 where I am now: “‘You know you live in a creepy old house, don’t you?’ Christen stood from her chair at the kitchen table and retrieved the bag of mint Oreos from the counter.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading time! 🙂

  8. Happy Friday! My first line (actually first 2 and the little poem before) is from “A Little Ray of Sunshine” by Kimberly Rae Jordan.

    “(Shadows around me, shadows above me
    Never conceal my Savior and Guide:
    He is the light, in Him is no darkness,
    Ever I’m walking close to His side.)

    Ryan McFadden looked at each of the men gathered around the large boardroom table. He searched the familiar faces for any sign of the unease that sat so heavy in his gut.”

  9. Happy Friday! I’m featuring lines from Julia Wolf’s Cut Free on my blog today.

    Here, I’m sharing lines from Susan Stoker’s Defending Allye.

    “So I’ll see you back at the rendezvous point, right?” Black asked.
    “Absolutely,” Gray told his friend and partner as he readied himself to slip over the side of the fiberglass boat into the Pacific Ocean.

  10. I’ve read a few by her but none of her Amish titles. Enjoy this one!

    I’m about to start Hiding in Plain Sight by Mary Ellis, so I’ll share that first line here:
    It wouldn’t have taken much to turn a lousy day into something left of atrocious.

    Have a great weekend!

  11. I didn’t know about the theme ahead of time, but the book I’m sharing fits it. Here’s a line from 7% into the ebook of True Grit by Charles Portis:

    “If Papa had a failing it was his kindly disposition. People would use him. I did not get my mean streak from him.”

    Happy Friday!

  12. I have not read any of Kim Vogel Sawyer’s books yet. The book I’m sharing on my blog is “The Covenant” by Hilda Stahl. Here, I will share the first line in Chapter 9 of the same novel. “In September, Jennet stood beside the open front door, held the satchel of clothes out to Free, and said dutifully, “Take care of yourself.”” Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. I am really intrigued by that! Wonderful share!

    Over on my blog, I’m sharing Not Her Daughter, which you saw, but I’ll share from another book I’m reading here, Sadie,

    “DANNY GILCHRIST: It’s a beautiful day in the city. The sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky. I had a great lunch in Central Park, a chicken shawarma from the Shawarma Stop, which was overwhelmingly recommended to us by our listeners after last week’s episode on NYC’s best kept secrets. Thanks for that, you guys. It was so good, it just might be my dinner too. From WNRK New York, I’m Danny Gilchrist and you are listening to Always Out There.”

    I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend! ♥️

  14. I have not read any books by Kim! Gotta confess, I’m not really a fan of the Amish genre.

    I shared the first line from Amy Leigh Simpson’s When Fall Fades over on my blog.

    I JUST finished reading The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz, so I’ll share that first line here. “May 1775. Elisabeth took a breath, breaking an intense hour of concentration.”

      1. Haha! I get that. And, I have to admit I’m guilty of not reading all of the ones that get sent my way!

  15. I don’t think I’ve read any of Kim Vogel Sawyer’s Amish titles, but I enjoy her historical romances.

    I’m sharing from Know You More by Jan Thompson on my blog – it’s the latest addition to my never-ending to-read pile. And it’s currently free on Kindle (for around another 24 hours).
