Book Review: "Sadie's Gift" by Niki Turner

I won a copy of "Sadie's Gift" from Overcoming With God and was gifted a Kindle copy from Carrie Pagels.  

"Sadie's Gift" is set in 1921 Colorado Springs.   Sadie Hubbard is a nurse in the Preventorium for children who have been exposed to Tuberculosis.  Her heart is burdened for their happiness, especially as Christmas draws near.  As she sets out to make sure they have their share of Christmas joy, she inadvertently causes Nathan Wells to have an accident.  He angrily demands she pay for the repairs, which adds more for her to worry about.  As their plans for Christmas are suddenly thrown together, will they find a way to move past the hurts they both carry to find their own Christmas joy?

Sadie's Gift covered a topic that I was not very familiar with--TB.  I did not realize that they had Preventoriums for those who were most at risk for contracting TB.  I think that Niki Turner did a good job in covering the topic and both Sadie's and Nathan's reactions to the disease.  The characters were real and had pains and heartaches that they needed to deal with.  Sadie had a quiet strength that others relied on.

It was a fun, quick read that I would recommend to others who like Inspirational romances.
