ABOUT THE BOOK

Bringing Maggie Home (WaterBrook, September 2017)
Decades of loss, an unsolved mystery, and a rift spanning three generations
Hazel DeFord is a woman haunted by her past. While berry picking in a blackberry thicket in 1943, ten-year old Hazel momentarily turns her back on her three-year old sister Maggie and the young girl disappears.
Almost seventy years later, the mystery remains unsolved and the secret guilt Hazel carries has alienated her from her daughter Diane, who can’t understand her mother’s overprotectiveness and near paranoia. While Diane resents her mother’s inexplicable eccentricities, her daughter Meghan—a cold case agent—cherishes her grandmother’s lavish attention and affection.
When a traffic accident forces Meghan to take a six-week leave-of-absence to recover, all three generations of DeFord women find themselves unexpectedly under the same roof. Meghan knows she will have to act as a mediator between the two headstrong and contentious women. But when they uncover Hazel’s painful secret, will Meghan also be able to use her investigative prowess to solve the family mystery and help both women recover all that’s been lost?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

One thing I appreciate about Kim Vogel Sawyers books is the way she weaves living a Christian life in the lives of her characters. In Bringing Maggie Home, I love the way she eased the Gospel into her story, especially in the life of Sean. I really like Sean, the Christian that stood up for his faith and his God, but didn’t act holier than thou! He was just a nice guy and I was really rooting for him and Meghan to get together. Hazel was the sweetest old lady and my heart ached for her and the heartache she lived for 70 years. Diane was a little different. I did not like her and her arrogant ways and attitude. In the end, I warmed up to her more.

Hazel’s sister Maggie has disappeared when their mother sent Hazel blackberry picking and sent three year old Maggie with her. Despite the community searching effortlessly, Maggie was never found. Hazel and her parents were never the same. Life was hard, bitter and so sad from that day on. Hazel went through life with Maggie’s lost a secret from her family. It was when her granddaughter came to stay with Hazel to heal from an accident that the secret was accidentally brought to surface. Follow the journey of Hazel, her daughter Margaret Diane, her granddaughter Meghan and Meghan Cold Case Crime partner Sean as they investigate this seventy year old case of missing persons.
