Grace overcomes Betrayal!!!

Room For Hope

by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Neva Shilling has carried the most of the responsibility of raising her two kids, while her husband Warren travels to neighboring communities selling items from his wagon. She ran the mercantile all on her own, working her hardest to keep their business going in the midst of the Depression. Late one evening a wagon pulls up, rushing out to shower a warm welcome on her husband after his long trip; Neva and her kids are met with bad news. A deputy had come bearing the news that Warren and his wife had died and left behind three young children that he wanted to live with their "Aunt Neva". 

Shocked by the news of her husband's death and betrayal of their marriage vows, Neva chooses to pick up the pieces of her life and continue her life without her husband. Knowing what it was like to live in an orphanage, she does not want these little ones to have to go thru the struggles she went thru growing up.  By taking her husbands other family, will she be able to find grace in the midst of betrayal and be able to show love to these lost little ones.

This is a beautifully written story of overcoming betrayal with grace and love. Finding out about her husbands betrayal tore Neva apart, but the strength she found in holding onto the almighty in a time of trouble guided her to finding grace in the admist of a storm. Life hits us with so many different kinds of storms, by hanging onto the hand that holds us up we are able to go thru life stronger than we are on our own.
