Publisher's Summary

Nearly 16 years after relinquishing the rights to his unborn child, Noah Cooper is stunned to discover his daughter, Hope, wants to meet him. With the love and support of his family, Noah sets off from Elk Flats, Montana to Albany, New York, having no idea what changes are in store for him.

Cancer survivor and widow Beth Peterson is more than a little nervous to meet her daughter's birth father. Their initial meeting goes well, but things decline in a hurry when Noah invites Hope to spend time at the ranch without speaking to Beth about it first.

Determined to meet her new family, a battle of wills ensues between Hope and her mother. While Hope longs for a connection, Beth fears losing her daughter to virtual strangers - strangers who live 2000 miles away.

Struggles and misunderstandings abound between Noah and Beth, despite their growing attraction for one another. Noah is ready to commit, while Beth can't let go of the memory of her husband and the imperfections cancer has forced to live with.

Will hope, patience, and prayer be enough to pull this family together?

A standalone listen, Finding Hope is the continuing story of the Cooper brothers, first introduced in The Rose Ring.

    "Finding Hope"

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

    First off let me say...I loved this book...I want to get the first one and can you tell me how many are in this series?

    Noah gives up all rights to his daughter Hope & is stunned when he finds out that Hope wants to meet him.
    Hope is an adopted young girl that finds & wants to meet her biological father, while trying to honor her adoptive father's memory.
    Beth is a widow that is protective of Hope as any mother would be & fears loosing her daughter to her biological father.

    This book is all about love, hope, family & romance. Its about second chances and how you should take them when they arise.

    Noah with the support of his family goes to meet Hope & wants to get to know her better and invites her back to his place to spend some time but does so without talking to Beth first which upsets her. Beth being an over-protective mom with tons of insecurities becomes rude & standoffish towards Noah, however with a growing attraction between the two Noah seems to see past it.

    This is a feel good, make sure you have tissues type of book.

    I am a true believer in second chances, love & family.
    I highly recommend this book!

    Story
    "Good Christian Romance"

    I enjoyed Finding Hope, although the story was a bit slow in parts. I understood and respected Noah's desire to be in Hope's life but I'm not sure that the attraction to her mother Beth was entirely believable. Beth had endured a lot in her life but her over-protectiveness and insecurity often made her rude, standoffish and prickly towards Noah. Not exactly traits that most men would find endearing. Will Beth overcome her securities and take a leap of faith to find love again with Noah?

    I have not listened to the first book in this series but I don't feel that it detracted from my enjoyment of this book. With good writing and interesting characters, Finding Hope was a wonderful and inspirational romance. The narration was well done, making this a very pleasant listening experience. I would recommend Finding Hope.

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is my honest opinion.

    Story
    "Very slow and boring novel."

    This is very gentle Christian fiction. Although not my first choice, I have read other Christian novels and found them interesting. This novel I found slow and boring. It says something when the most interesting character in the book is a pastor in his 70’s!

    The plot seems very contrived. Noah’s family all have had problems. Beth has suffered both ovarian cancer and breast cancer and her husband’s tragic death. A relationship and marriage between Noah and Beth seems very unrealistic and contrived to me. That Noah would fall in love with Beth is just not believable! It works out nicely for everyone, but ...? It was difficult to get too excited about either Noah or Beth, but particularly Beth. She is very, very overly protective of Hope, even though she was the one to keep contact with the birth mother all those years.

    I was not aware that this book was the second in a series. It would have been more understandable if I had read the first book. Material from the first book keeps being hinted at and is only slowly revealed in this book.

    The narration was okay.

    I received this free copy from the author/narrator and voluntarily offered an unbiased review.

    "What a good story!"

    Unusual for the male perspective to be the lead in a romance book. I enjoyed this very much.

    Story
    "Two Opposites with One Commonality"

    Mostly stand-alone book that often references Noah's brother Micah & his wife Sky featured in "The Rose Ring". Noah Cooper takes action to visit Albany, NY when he has an opportunity to meet his 15 yr old daughter, who was given up for adoption, years ago. Ups and downs ensue between Noah and Hope's adoptive mother Beth Peterson. Learning to act like a father; learning to share Hope's parenting, time & attention; starting to share an attraction all create friction that develops the characters & storyline. All of my favorite stories feature strong women, but Beth had enough negative issues that I found it harder to warm up to her. I would have preferred a few more romantically intimate moments (not sex!) for my sensibilities to recognize the intimacy of love between Noah and Beth. Overall, it was a fairly well written story.

    Leonor Woodworth 's narration was much better than the snippet indicated, and fit the story; the characters and emotions were clearly defined. I can definitely recommend this story if you prefer a christian "romance".

    "So much more than the Title!"
    If you could sum up Finding Hope in three words, what would they be?

    Hope, Redemption, Love


    What other book might you compare Finding Hope to and why?

    I'm not sure what other book I would compare it to. I listen to a great range of genre's. This book I found to be more christian based than most romances. Barbara Goss is another christian writer whom I listened to, but her romances are historical.


    What about Leonor A Woodworth’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoyed her various characters and thought she brought so many emotions to the listen.


    Any additional comments?

    "Finding Hoe"

    Finding Hope
    : Lucie Ulrich

    A second chance at love with a few twists. Family, love, loyalty to past loves, new romance, and sweet sweet Hope! I now have to go back and read the 1st book in this series because I really liked this one.


    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Lucie Ulrich delivered a wonderful performance!

    Story
    "Second chanses can be messy but good"

    Noah gave up his rights to his daughter 16 years ago. He has been living his life and trying to work out his relationship with his estranged brother when he gets a call. His daughter wants to meet him for her birthday present . . .

    Sixteen years ago Beth Peterson and her husband adopted beautiful Hope. They could not have children due to Beth's cancer. Hope brought joy and fulfillment into their lives until her dad dies. Beth wants to give Hope her birthday wish, but can she do this and allow her daughter to get involved with one man who gave her up? And what does she do with the growing feelings toward the man who gave his daughter away?

    Finding Hope is filled with joy, anger, frustration, faith, and hope in God and the love that a father has for his child. The reunion is not an easy one for either father or daughter and then throw in an understandably protective mother who is just recovering from her second fight against cancer and you have a real, yet touching story about life, love, forgiveness, and second chances.

    I found this story to be well written by Lucie Ulrich. I really cared about the characters and did get a typical "happy ending", but much more. Leonor A. Woodworth did an excellent job narrating this story. She brought the characters alive and made them believable and easy to listen to. I always enjoy listening to her work!
