|A Review From CountryLife4me|
About the Book:
In a desperate time, can Neva find forgiveness for a grievous wrong—and make room for hope?
Neva Shilling has a heavy load of responsibility while her husband travels to neighboring communities and sells items from his wagon. In his absence, she faithfully runs the Shilling Mercantile, working to keep their business strong as the Depression takes its toll, and caring for their twins.
When a wagon pulls up after supper, Neva and her children rush out—and into the presence of the deputy driving a wagon carrying three young children. The deputy shocks her with the news that Warren and his wife have died, insisting it was their last request that the three children go live with “Aunt Neva.”
Neva’s heart is shattered as she realizes that Warren’s month-long travels were excuses for visits with his secret family. She wants nothing more than to forget Warren, but can she abandon these innocent children to an orphanage? Yet if she takes them in, will she ever be able to see them as more than evidence of her husband’s betrayal and love them the way God does?

The book will tug at your heart . A strong woman who struggles to live as she believes all the while dealing with pain, humiliation and forgiveness. Based on true events from Sawyer’s family history, Room for Hope is a beautiful story of God’s powerful redemptive work in the midst of struggle, betrayal, and heartbreak.
A book that will keep you turning page after page even late at night. This book is one you must read.
See how God can restore hope, trust, and love. And how having the Lord close is more important than anything in the world.
Neva Shilling’s life is about taking care of her children even though her husband is always away. Neva learns of a tragedy and her life is turned upside down. Can she manage to pull through. How will she handle the things that are thrown at her. I love the strength that Neva shows in the face of devastating news and that she has the Faith to see her through.
The book is a 5 star read. One you will see God in , even through hurt, pain, anger and betrayal.
