Publisher's Summary

After tragedy robs her of everyone she loves, Jeannette Mason retreats to the tiny Oregon seaside town of Hope Harbor to create a new life. Vowing to avoid emotional attachments, she focuses on running her lavender farm and tea-room - until a new neighbor with a destructive dog and a forlorn little girl invades her turf. But she needn't worry. Dr. Logan West is too busy coping with an unexpected family, a radical lifestyle change, and an unruly pup to have any interest in his aloof and disagreeable neighbor. 

Yet when both Jeanette and Logan find themselves pulled into the life of a tattered Christian family fleeing persecution in war-torn Syria, might they discover that love sometimes comes calling when it's least expected? 

Best-selling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites listeners back to the charming seaside town of Hope Harbor, where they are sure to find peace, healing, and a second chance at happiness.

Excellent story; Supreme Narration!

The story was very enjoyable with the right amount of description, dialogue, etc. It was very reminiscent of stories by Robyn Carr, but from a bit more socially conservative bent (no sex scenes).

The narrator is the best I’ve ever heard. I LOOK for books narrated by Therese Plummer. She has excellent voices for the different characters... appropriate accents- without being over the top, great children’s voices- without being whiny, a pleasant overall tone that is easy to hear and a perfect cadence- not too slow, not too fast!

Parallel yet converging characters

Driftwood bay is a very interesting and compelling story about parallel yet converging characters: Each of whom have their own challenges in life and how they converge to work through their issues. Well done

Really good

I enjoyed this story so much, especially how all three families were dealing with the same issues. But how differently they were handling it.

Thought Provoking Story -- Excellent Narration!

Driftwood Bay by Irene Hannon -- As far as I am concerned, Irene Hannon has hit a winning home run -- again! Luv this author and her Christian stories and this is one that I will listen to again and again, as I do so with many of her stories. And, Therese Plummer, as always, does an excellent job bringing this story to life. A very gifted author and an equally gifted narrator!

An excellent addition to the Hope Harbor series

Irene Hannon creates such wonderfully deep characters and the six main characters in this story are no different. All suffered tragedy, all are trying to figure out how to go forward, albeit in fits and starts, and all will discover that not only God’s love, but the love of family and friends, are needed to move on – not forget, but to learn to live in a new normal and find a new “happy place” for themselves. Their stories will touch you, their struggles will move you, and, in the case of the two little girls, will break your heart. But they do triumph over sadness and pain and all have their happy ending. And through it all, there’s Charlie dispensing love and wisdom exactly when it’s needed. I’m looking forward to returning to Hope Harbor soon. Therese Plummer brings this story to life. She is one of the best female narrators out there and I can't imagine anyone else narrating this series.
