Happy Monday! The purpose of memorable Monday is to showcase a book that you’ve read in the past and share how/why it has stuck with you.
This week I’m featuring:
By: Lori Wick
As far as I can remember, Sophie’s Heart was the second book of hers that I read. I read it about a decade ago now, but it’s one that I still remember as one of my favorites. I remember really getting emotionally attached to this story. I remember really thinking about how foreign people can often be looked down upon simply for their language barriers or cultural differences, yet what they are desperately seeking is just a new place to call home and friends to accept and love them. I loved that even though Sophie was in need of a job, she got so much more, while Alec and his kids were able to find what they didn’t even know they were looking for. This is one I definitely recommend reading if you haven’t already 🙂
About the Book:
After the tragic death of his wife, Alec Riley struggles to put his life back together. He and his three children are lost in their grief… until Sophie walks unexpectedly into their lives. Having left her native Czechoslovakia, Sophie has discovered the land which seemed so bright with promise is far from her dream. A highly educated woman, Sophie now finds herself keeping house for Alec and his family. How can Sophie find peace in her new job? Will God use her gentle spirit to help heal Alec’s broken heart? From the author of The Visitor and Bamboo and Lace comes a warm contemporary story of God’s tender mercies and loving intervention in the life of one family.
