Publisher's Summary

Sometimes we’re allowed to glimpse the beauty within the brokenness....

Savannah Barrington has always found solace at her parents’ lake house in the Berkshires, and it’s the place that she runs to when her husband of more than 20 years leaves her. Though her world is shaken and the future uncertain, she finds hope through an old woman’s wisdom, a little girl’s laughter, and a man who’s willing to risk his own heart to prove to Savannah that she is worthy of love.

But soon Savannah is given a challenge she can’t run away from: forgiving the unforgivable. Amid the ancient gardens and musty bookstores of the small town she’s sought refuge in, she must reconcile with the grief that haunts her, the God pursuing her, and the wounds of the past that might be healed after all.

Where Hope Begins is the story of grace in the midst of brokenness, pointing us to the miracles that await when we look beyond our own expectations.

Important topics done amazingly well

There were so many important topics covered in the story. Grief, marriage, communication, divorce, infidelity, forgiveness, desire, death, illness, faith, love, hope, mystery and little magical miracles. I got to know the characters in a deep way. I understood what they were going through and felt it with them.This book will stay with me a long time. It’s one that I want to just let sink in, let it steep for a while after reading it. It is very well written and the narration is also perfect. This is my first book by this author and I hope to read more now.

Great book

I enjoyed this book.
It took some compelling turns,
It made me sad, angry, happy.
I am not one who believes in ghosts, but the slight touch on the subject didn’t dispel me from continuing my reading of the book (normally, if there is any profanity or ghosts, I stop reading).

The book grabbed me from the beginning, kept me wanting more in the middle, and left me melancholy at the end.

I hope this book will be made into a series.

Riveting

I could not stop listening to this book. It’s a must read for those that have been through what the book 📖 is all about. God does provide 2nd chances if only you let him.
