Review: My Heart Remembers by Kim Vogel Sawyer

This is the description from the back of the book as I don't believe I could do justice to the story. United by blood, divided by time, will three orphan train siblings ever find one another again? Orphaned in a tenement fire, three Irish immigrant children are sent to Missouri to be adopted. Despite eight year old Maelle's desperate attempts to keep her siblings together, each child is taken by a different family. Yet Maelle vows that she will never stop searching for her brother and sister . . . and that they will be together one day in the future. Seventeen years later, Maelle is still searching. But the years have washed away her hope . . . and her memories. What are Mattie and Molly doing now? Where has life taken them? Will she ever see her brother and sister again?

Absolutely a 5⭐️  

1: This is the first Kim Vigel Sawyer I've read simply because I hesitate to branch out. I loved her style. It intrigued me from the get go   

2: I like the way it was Christian with just elements of romance and mystery. But it really wasn't either. 

3: I like how the ending gives finality without a huge bow tying it up with unrealistically ideal endings for every character ever in the whole book. 

4: The families who originally got the kids did love them each in their own way. Even though Mattie's family had to take him back. I love that the Standlers kept Molly's Bible. 

5: Maelle (such a pretty name) never gave up. Gods perfect timing 😍😍😍😍
