Book Review - "Hope Springs"


 Book Info
About the book:

Hope Springs
| Kim Cash Tate

In a small community where everyone is holding tight to something, the biggest challenge may be learning to let go.

Hope Springs, North Carolina, is the epitome of small town life-a place filled with quiet streets, a place where there's not a lot of change. Until three women suddenly find themselves planted there for a season.

Janelle 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 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.

And Stephanie has the ideal life-married to a doctor in St. Louis with absolutely nothing she has to do. When her cousin Janelle volunteers to stay in Hope Springs and care for their grandmother, she feels strangely 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. God's plan for them in Hope Springs-is bigger than they ever imagined.

My review:
 I have always loved everything and anything to do with Christmas and I knew I was going to love Kim Cash Tate's latest book, "Hope Springs," when I read that the family was getting together for Christmas and I was not disappointed!  I was immediately drawn into the story and each of the characters' lives.  Janelle was my favorite character as she has dealt with so much in her life, yet took charge and also opened her heart once again. The girls' develop such a bond between them as they are all dealing with personal things in their own lives and yet are all there together to support one another and their grandmother.  Hope Springs is such a lovely community and one that each of us could hope to find - the bonds and love that tie the members of the community together and the healing that took place for each of the characters.  This is a book that will inspire you to live your life for God and leave you feeling good at the end of the story!
