Hope Springs By Kimberly Cash Tate

I received this e-book from Litfuse Publicity Group for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this e-book. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Book Description:

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.




My Thoughts:

Hope Springs By Kimberly Cash Tate is a wonderful story about generations of families and friends who are bound together by more than just their yards.  This story talks about families and churches that for years were divided by racial lines and how these families bring others to cross these lines and intertwined into each others lives.  Kimberly Cash Tate writes well rounded, real characters that deal with real issues and as I read this book I felt like I was part of this group of characters.  This story made me laugh in many places but also cry in others.  As this story unfolds, you feel like you are right there in the middle of this story, invited into these women's lives.  I found it very hard to put this book down from the start.  The story really spoke to me from the start and held me until the very end.  Hope Springs is a beautiful story.  If you enjoy Christian Fiction you will really enjoy this book. Hope Springs invites you in, and makes you want to stay.
