My Heart Remembers by Kim Vogel Sawyer


Kim Vogel Sawyer has got it.

She can really write. Really.

I just flew through My Heart Remembers, which is the story of three young siblings who are separated after being sent on an Orphan Train to Missouri.

The oldest child, Maelle, promises her brother Mattie that she will come for him someday after already watching their baby sister Molly, along with the family Bible, disappear in the arms of a wealthy couple.

Maelle, Mattie, and Molly all go their separate ways, each into very different lives. Will Maelle ever be able to find them again? Have they kept their “ties to home” so that she will recognize them?

Kim absolutely knows how to capture the reader’s attention, imagination, and emotions. She is an amazing storyteller.

I don’t have much more to say, except that I loved it.

I’d read it again.

And again.

I’ll be filling my shelves with more of Kim’s books!

You should, too. :-)

Try this one or this one.

You won’t be disappointed!

Thanks so much for the kind words. This is an extra special story to me, so it's very gratifying to know it found its way into your heart, as well. God bless!
