Publisher's Summary

Number-one national best-selling and award-winning author ReShonda Tate Billingsley delivers another moving, evocative, and timely novel about how a small seed of hope can change the course of one’s life.

Savannah Graham thought she had the perfect marriage...until grief drove her husband into the arms of his best friend’s wife. Now, she believes revenge is the only way her heart can heal from the betrayal.

For 52 years, Ollie Moss lived side by side with the love of his life, his wife Elizabeth. But now that she’s gone, so is his desire to live, despite the love from his children, and his beloved grandson Samuel. Can anything save Ollie’s life?

Anna Rodriguez just wants to work and provide for her three children by any means necessary. But her decision to break the law in order to get a job is threatening life as she knows it.

Trey Brown is known in his neighborhood as a hustler, so much so that the gangs want him to join their ranks...but there’s a reason the 19-year-old does what he does - he’s the only one left who can save his little brother.

Different circumstances lead each of them to The Markham Hotel, where they hope to find solace, comfort, and answers. Told from multiple perspectives, The Book in Room 316 will renew your strength and faith that there is always a way forward.

Reshonda You Did It Again!!!

Another excellent read from this talented author. From start to finish the story held my attention with its interwoven tales of love, betrayal, hurt and redemption. My only wish is that The Book had belonged to the character who had lost her grandmother's Bible. I don't know how it could have happened that it would be there but it would have added to the magic of the story line. Thanks so much!!!

Oh Ye of little faith

Angel ~ a spiritual being superior to humans in power and intelligence. Do you believe in angels on earth? We have all said that when a loved one passes away that they are watching over us but is it possible to have a guardian angel? We all have met someone where their actions just made us think, “Wow where did he/she come from? They were right on time!” Is it just good luck or do we have a higher power looking out for our well-being?

Savannah Graham is a happily married woman, or so she thought. She has had some recent tragedies in her life that she thought she would never bounce back from, but she did. Then the ultimate betrayal happened and she just knew life as she knew it was over. How can she bounce back from this latest tragedy or will this be her downfall?

Ollie Moss was happily married for over 50 years to his beloved Elizabeth. When illness took Elizabeth from Ollie he didn’t think he would survive without her. He has his children and grandchildren but there is nothing like your wife to have by your side. Will Ollie get through this or will he succumb to the sadness?

Anna Rodriguez is a housekeeper at the famous Markham Hotel. She is a hard-working single mother of three and she does everything for them within her power. Anna has been such a help to so many others but who is around when she needs help?

The Book in Room 316 is a book about faith. It is about having your faith tested, losing faith and trying to get it back. The story is told from the views of the different characters trying to see if there is any way that they can be helped and help themselves. There is a six degree of separation feel going on because they will all cross paths at some point in this book. Reading this books makes you question the characters and yourself. You are thinking “Could something like that happen to me?” I love books that make you talk to the characters or ask questions of yourself. I love Billingsley work and she doesn’t disappoint with this one. This is a book for everyone, great job!
