Publisher's Description

Her heart aches for his return... but is the distance between them measured by more than miles?

Anna Mae isn't sure her husband is being completely honest about his job with the Works Progress Administration. They're building a castle? In Kansas? Harley promised he'd be at the worksite only long enough to earn enough cash to keep their farm. But the money hasn't arrived, and Anna Mae fears Harley may be gone for good.

Harley Phipps has never been a man in need of luxuries, but he wants to do right by his wife and two little girls. He was about to lose all he'd worked for if he didn't do something--there was no way he could pass up the government job, even if it meant leaving his family for a while. Anna Mae was awful mad when he sold the mules, packed his bag, and headed out. If only she'd send him a short note to let him know she and the girls are all right...

Acclaimed author, Kim Vogel Sawyer, has written another great book: Where Willows Grow, a historical novel set in 1936 Kansas.
Spencer, Kansas is experiencing a severe drought. The Phipps’ farm is in trouble. The crops have failed and there is no money. Harley Phipps, the farmer, realizes the only way to feed his family and earn money for the upcoming taxes is to leave home and take a job with the Works Progress Administration. Harley’s wife, Anna Mae, lets him know she is not happy with his decision. She allows her temper to get the best of her and refuses to say good-bye as he walks away from the farm.
Months pass and the money and letters Harley promised to send do not materialize. The Phipps’ friend Jack comes daily to help with chores, to take Anna Mae and the children to church, and to take them on other outings. The due date for the taxes has come and gone, food is scarce, and Jack is pressuring Anna Mae to leave Harley and marry him. Only with God’s continual presence will Anna Mae make it through the tough times.
The character-driven story is superb. Each character is well portrayed, living on in the minds of readers who feel like a part of the story. The setting in Where Willows Grow is well crafted, becoming another character in the story. The author allows the reader to work alongside Harley at the construction site, to sit under the cooling protective branches of the weeping willow, and to look at the drought-ridden land through the eyes of Anna Mae.
Where Willows Grow is a gentle reminder that like the willow’s roots which grow deep to find its source of water, each one of us must have our faith root grow deep to find our life source, God. I definitely would recommend this book to any reader. – Victoria H. Borgman, Christian Book Previews.com

    This book was excellent! Three-dimensional characters, compelling story, very good pacing. I've read other books by Mrs. Sawyer and she is an amazing author! Her books are "clean" and yet very compelling. I didn't want to put it down. The only negative thing I can say is that it kept me up far too late at night! =)

    This book was amazing! You touched and felt what the characters touched and felt, lived and breathed what the characters lived and breathed, and pinched and scraped with them to get through life in the middle of the Depression. Being in portrayed in Kansas, it really gave it a family, farmy feel that brought me even closer. Kim's style was wonderful the way it showed everybodys thoughts and feelings, you wouldn't have felt as close to the character if it wasn't that way, and Jack would have been kept a secret until the end, which would have taken out one of the major parts of the book. Among all the others charcters, Anna mae touch my heart, I seriously could not put it down, even when reading by candle light when our power was out!I can't decribe anymore without giving it away, so you will have to read it for your self. All I can say is I LOVED this book like all the other Kim Vogel Sawyer books I've read = ).

    When I read this book I felt like I was a part of it. This author pulls me so thoroughly into the story I can smell the smells, hear the sounds, and see the sights. I highly recommend anything she writes.
