In The Author's Own Words...

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you find a welcome here. As an author of inspirational Christian fiction, it is my goal to create stories that will edify God's children and offer evidence of the hope we can all possess when we place our hearts and souls in God's very capable hands. I've been asked..."Why fiction?" And the answer is simple: Even Jesus told stories to help His followers understand Who He was and His purpose for coming to earth. A story can draw one in and make an impact. Before I commit words to paper (or computer!), I spend time in God's Word and in prayer. I believe my stories aren't truly "mine," but are a joint effort between myself and the God I serve. I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit. Make yourself at home! Sign the guestbook or send a friend by, if you like. And may God bless you muchly as you journey with Him!

Kim Vogel Sawyer currently resides in Hutchinson, in the state of Kansas.

Wonderfully touching story!!!  Aug 21, 2008
This is one of the very few books that has actually made me cry! This story is so amazing!! I would recommend this book to absolutely anyone!!!
My Heart Remembers  Aug 16, 2008
A wonderful book - quite a change from the usual thrillers I like to read.
This was a wonderful change of pace.
My Heart Remembers not easily forgotten  Aug 12, 2008
I can not stop thinking about My Heart Remembers. Maybe it was the vivid descriptions, or the fact that some children have always had to fight to be loved. Or maybe Vogal just struck a nerve of compassion. By any definition, this book is a good one that will leave you contemplating the complicated process of life. And yet, one of the greatest lessons this book teaches is that God has a plan for all of us. That plan will be carried out in spite of our circumstances if we trust him. You will not only read this book, but will want it on your bookshelf to read again. My Heart Remembers would make a good book club choice.
Absolutely Wonderful!  Jun 8, 2008
I have read all this author's books and, although I didn't particularly care overmuch for the Sommerfield Trilogy, this one is awesome. I don't really like the Amish books, so that's why I didn't like the Sommerfield Trilogy, although it was good. Just not my cup of tea.

This book is so very good. Watching the dear children go on after losing their parents in a fire and being separated just breaks your heart in two. Especially the young man, who was cruelly treated by foster parents.

Their reunion was the most tender, heart moving thing. This book would make an excellent movie. I'm hoping that the author writes more on this family. She certainly left the door open to further visitations down the road.
An inspirational Christian fiction book  May 28, 2008
Reviewed by Lori Plach for Reader Views (5/08)

Imagine losing your parents in a tragic fire, and having to travel hundreds of miles with other children to meet your new "parents." This is what happened when kids in the 1800s would lose their parents. If you were left as an orphan and had no family to step forward and take custodial and guardianship for you, you would ride aboard an "orphan train." Now, imagine pledging to your mother before she dies that you will do what you can to keep your family together. Maelle Gallagher had her younger brother and sister on the train alongside her, only to reach Missouri and be separated. Each of them has a family treasure which they can use to remember their brother and sister by, but will they ever be able to be a family again?

Each of the family treasures is of sentimental value all its own. Maelle keeps the love letters that their parents had written to each other. Mattie has a picture of the three children with their parents. Even though she is just a toddler, Molly is given the family Bible with the birthdates and full names of the children written inside it. Will these three children ever be able to match up their specific things with their siblings?

They all grow up with their adoptive parents. Maelle is taught a trade of being an on-the-road photographer. She has lost her adoptive father but has inherited his equipment. Mattie is tragically mistreated and can't wait till he grows up so he can leave. Molly is adopted by the Standlers; she is treated lavishly and lives the "rich life" until her adoptive parents died. What will happen when they all end up in the same town? Can they put the pieces back together?

Kim Vogel Sawyer has done an incredible job of writing an inspirational Christian fiction book which has its own line of mystery, history and intrigue all rolled into one volume. "My Heart Remembers" is a book which will pull at your heartstrings. What an incredible love and determination the Gallagher children have in trying to hold on to the hope of ever seeing their siblings again. I had a very difficult time putting this book down. I simply loved it and hope that Kim Vogel Sawyer is writing another book similar to this one again soon. My heart will definitely remember "My Heart Remembers" for a long time
