The Sommerfeld Trilogy-Bygones, Beginnings, Blessings

Stories of hope from award winning and bestselling author, Kim Vogel Sawyer, are a favorite of Annella Aurand.  In The Sommerfeld Trilogy, Sawyer presents a collection of Mennonite romances. Set in a quiet Kansas Mennonite community, the three stories feature women seeking a place to belong and a faith on which to depend.

     In Bygones, Marie returns to the Kansas town of her childhood after 23 years. She falls under suspicion when mysterious thefts occur.  Can she really find love and acceptance among the Old Order Mennonites?  Beginnings, the second installment, presents Beth who has been raised in the Mennonite community.  As she starts her own business, two men vie for her attention.  One is a devout Mennonite dedicated to family and faith.  The other is the son of a successful businessman and may be only interested in Beth’s talents.  Lastly, Blessings, is Trina’s story.  She has a burning desire to be a veterinarian which she trusts comes from God.  Will that separate Trina from her community and family?

     Author Kim Vogel Sawyer enjoys a full-time writing and speaking ministry.  Her books are available at Saline District Library and most retail book sellers.
