Hope Springs-book review and Kindle Fire giveaway

About the Book

Hope Springs is the epitome of small-town life—a place filled with quiet streets where families have been friends for generations, a place where not a lot changes . . . until now.
Janelle Evans hasn’t gone back to Hope Springs for family reunions since losing her husband. But when she arrives for Christmas and learns that her grandmother is gravely ill, she decides to extend the stay. It isn’t long before she runs into her first love, and feelings that have been dormant for more than a decade are reawakened.
Becca Anderson is finally on the trajectory she’s longed for. Having been in the ministry trenches for years, she’s been recruited as the newest speaker of a large Christian women’s conference.

But her husband feels called to become the pastor of his late father’s church in Hope Springs. Will small-town living affect her big ministry dreams?
Stephanie London is married to a doctor in St. Louis and living an ideal life. When her cousin Janelle volunteers to stay in Hope Springs and care for their grandmother, she feels compelled to do the same. It’s a decision that will forever change her.
As these women come together, they soon recognize that healing is needed in their hearts, their families, and their churches that have long been divided along racial lines. God’s plan for them in Hope Springs—and for Hope Springs itself—is bigger than they ever imagined.

My Opinion

I fell in love with Hope Springs and the way that Kim interwinds the three different women's lives in this story is fascinating.  My husband and I have a saying, "Everything happens for a reason."  As I was reading Hope Springs I kept thinking to myself that this book drives our saying home more and more, everything does happen for a reason and God knows exactly what's going on with each and every one of us.  He has His reasons and while many times I do question Him and wonder WHY, I'm finally learning to trust him and know that he has a divine plane for my life and if I will let go and let God then my life will be phenomenal.  I feel that even more after reading about the three women's lives and everything that happens to them like loss, divorce,  dreams, racism, faith and of course love!  This is a fabulous book about lost love and finding it again., you won't want to miss a single word.

Thanks for reading,
