What's on your reading list right now?

Personally, I am usually much more of a nonfiction reader. I love reading faith based books... things that will help me to grow as a person. Lately, however, I have been on quite the fiction kick. Sometimes we all just need that escape that fiction can bring us. Sometimes that's in fantasy. Sometimes that's in mystery. Sometimes that's in a romance. And sometimes it's just in a little bit of drama.

Today, I'm sharing a great new read you'll want to add to your reading list, 'Where Hope Begins':


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 over twenty 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. Amidst 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.

This book will have you grabbing for the tissues right at the very beginning! From the start, we are drawn into the life and heartache of our lead character Savannah, and find ourselves wanting to read on and on. This book is real, it's raw... it's not the easy going, lighthearted summer beach read that's for certain... but it certainly full of heart! I could not put it down. The characters are believable, the story well thought out and written, and truly was just a GREAT read.

This book does deal with the loss of a child, so again, not an easy read, especially for those who might find that topic triggering. Still, despite the heavy topics at hand, it truly is- as the name suggests- a story of hope. And it's a story that I highly recommend checking out.

'Where Hope Begins' is available to purchase now at your favorite book retailers.
