Another winner for Kim Sawyer

Kim Sawyer has done it again. My Heart Remembers is a touching story of a young woman’s search for her siblings after they were separated for adoption. Maelle, Mattie, and Molly are three young ones you won’t soon forget. Soon after their parents’ deaths in a fire, Maelle finds herself taking care of her younger brother and sister. Problem is, with her cut short and wearing only a nightshirt, the authorities mistake her for a boy and call her Michael. When they are loaded onto an orphan train, Maelle believes they are going to be adopted by a family. When that doesn’t happen, Maelle manages to give each sibling a token from their real parents. Molly receives the family Bible, and Mattie is given the last picture taken of them as a family. Maelle keeps the letters her father wrote to her mother as a reminder of their love. The story jumps ahead and we see each one grown up and learn what has happened in their lives. Some of it isn’t good at all. We find an amazing tale of love and perseverance. They are so near, yet so far from each other. But we see how God takes the worst of circumstances and turns them into something wonderful. This is a must read for fans of Kim.
