Bringing Maggie Home By Kim Vogel Sawyer {A Book Review}

Bringing Maggie Home by Kim Vogel Sawyer was a book that intersted me so much from the synopsis that I nearly requested it twice! That being said, when I started reading it took me nearly 2 weeks to get past the first couple of chapters. The back and forth style of the writing going between present day and nearly 60 years before was hard initially. 

However, once I pushed through those first few chapters, it was excellent! So excellent, in fact, that I finished within 24 hours. The story is of three generations in one family who are brought together after the granddaughters is injured working. As they come together, you learn that there is a lot of animosity between the older two generations as well as between the younger two generations. 

As you read the book, you learn of a secret the grandmother has been keeping for over 60 years. You also learn the reasons animosity has been harbored for years between the members of the family. The way the stories go back and forth between the grandmother's voice, the mother's voice and the granddaughter's voice, is very interesting. It's enjoyable to hear firsthand their thoughts as the story progresses. 

There's also a tiny bit of romance involved and that was a fun little addition despite is not being the main storyline. Great christian fiction book with the voice of God woven through it as well.
