Hope Springs is the epitome of small-town life—a place filled with quiet streets where families have been friends for generations, a place where not a lot changes . . . until now.
Janelle Evans hasn’t gone back to Hope Springs for family reunions since losing her husband. But when she arrives for Christmas and learns that her grandmother is gravely ill, she decides to extend the stay. It isn’t long before she runs into her first love, and feelings that have been dormant for more than a decade are reawakened.
Becca Anderson is finally on the trajectory she’s longed for. Having been in the ministry trenches for years, she’s been recruited as the newest speaker of a large Christian women’s conference. But her husband feels called to become the pastor of his late father’s church in Hope Springs. Will small-town living affect her big ministry dreams?
Stephanie London is married to a doctor in St. Louis and living an ideal life. When her cousin Janelle volunteers to stay in Hope Springs and care for their grandmother, she feels compelled to do the same. It’s a decision that will forever change her.
As these women come together, they soon recognize that healing is needed in their hearts, their families, and their churches that have long been divided along racial lines. God's plan for them in Hope Springs—and for Hope Springs itself—is bigger than they ever imagined.
If you have read Kim Cash Tate's first books, Faithful and Cherished, you will find a recognition of a few of the characters which makes it fun revisiting them. Though don't be alarmed you can read this book on its own with out knowing what happened in the previous books. I really enjoyed this book and I think each of her books get better and better. I love the large cast of characters and Kim does a great job at weaving there stories together and giving enough attention to each of them. The characters deal with a lot of issues and have to rely on God to get them through and help direct them in where they need to be. This is a great book that many women would enjoy. It is not for those that only want to read romance since it is more of a women's fiction book centered around issues and drama. Great job Kim on another fine release.
* I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Group for the purpose of this review.
