This was my first experience with Kim Vogel Sawyer, and I am looking forward to reading more of her writing. "Waiting for Summer's Return" is the story of a woman who feels God has abandoned her after the deaths of her husband and children on their way out west. When she is taken in by the Ollenburgers, she begins to see how life can go on after such loss, and even how God can bring good out of the bad.
I enjoy Barbara Caruso as a narrator, and I think she did a wonderful job here. For the most part, I also enjoyed Sawyer's writing. I thought her message of healing and hope was a powerful one. My one complaint is that she had a tendency to gloss over fairly large periods of time in which the characters grow and develop or in which significant events take place. I would have liked to experience more of those times as they happened rather than learning about them afterwards, as I feel that makes for a more satisfying story. As a result, I thought the ending felt a little forced. Overall, however, the story was a sweet one and I look forward to continuing the series. Perhaps this technique will grow on me.
