Love’s Winter Hope was hard for me to set down! I loved the interactions between Jessalyn and Thomas. I empathized with both of them and the frustrations and struggles they faced. Jessalyn battled feelings of distrust and fear and Thomas battled feelings of desperation and guilt. These emotions were palpable throughout this story, making me truly hope for a good resolution for these characters. I especially liked Thomas’ character and the way he handled things. The author did a very good job of showing the type of man that Thomas had grown into.
Love’s Winter Hope was such a heartwarming story and a great additon to the Eagle Harbor series. I believe that someone could read this book without having read the others in the series and be able to follow the main storyline just fine. However, I personally am glad to have read the other books in the series, as the returning characters felt like friends that I got to catch up with once more.
Love’s Winter Hope is a story not to be missed. It delves deeply into the fears and struggles of a married couple who have lost their way and need a fresh start with the help of the Lord.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Journey back to a time when neighbors knew each other’s names, and a handshake meant a person’s honor. The bestselling Eagle Harbor Series continues with Book 5, Love’s Winter Hope.
When Jessalyn Dowrick’s husband left her and their three daughters to head west five years earlier, she had no choice but to pick up the pieces of her broken life and continue without him, eventually supporting herself as Eagle Harbor’s seamstress, and secretly hoping her husband would return. But days soon slipped into months, and months into years, all without word of Thomas or a cent of the money he’d promised to send.
While working day and night to build a new life that his wife would be proud of, Thomas wrote Jessalyn every week, asking her to come to South Dakota. But she never arrived. In fact, she never answered a single one of his letters. When he returns to Eagle Harbor in search of answers, he finds a woman who thought him dead . . . and soon regrets he didn’t come after her earlier.
As winter closes in and storms trap Thomas in town until the harbor opens in the spring, will he be able to convince his wife he’s worth a second chance?
Come visit the historical town that readers can’t get enough of.
