A New Hope Book Review

I went to the library to get the newspapers and pick up the the books on reserve.  I was excited to get two things checked off my weekend to do list but I was running hours late.  I was excited to see A New Hope (Thunder Point) by Robyn Carr there because I had been waiting for it forever.  I had just finished my previous book so instead of picking up the next book in the pile, I grabbed this book and finished it in about one day.  I didn't get a lot of sleep but I did get a lot of reading done.

Starting over is never easy, but in Thunder Point, where newcomers are welcome and friends become family, it's possible to find yourself again. #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr takes us on a moving and rewarding journey as a young woman finds new hope. 

After losing her child, Ginger Dysart was lost in grief. But since moving to Thunder Point, a small town on the Oregon coast, Ginger is finally moving forward. Her job at the flower shop is peaceful and fulfilling, and she's excited to be assisting with the Lacoumette wedding.

In spite of her lasting heartache, Ginger is swept up in the pleasure of the occasion. But the beauty of the Lacoumette farm and the joy of the gregarious family are ruined by an unfortunate encounter with the bride's brother, Matt. Struggling with painful memories of his own, Matt makes a drunken spectacle of himself when he tries to make a pass at Ginger, forcing her to flee the scene in embarrassment.

But when Matt shows up at the flower shop determined to make amends, what started out as a humiliating first meeting blossoms into something much deeper than either of them expected. Everyone around them worries that Ginger will end up with a broken heart yet again. But if Ginger has the courage to embrace the future, and if Matt can finally learn to let go of the past, there may still be hope for a happy ending.

I loved it!!!  Read in less than 24 hours and couldn't put it down.  I was immediately into the book because I remembered the last book as soon as I started.  I love the characters and couldn't wait to find out what happened next with Ginger who we met in the last book.  She came out of a deep depression over the loss of her child and in this book, we get to see her put her life back together.  It is great to get to know Ginger more and see her grow in love.  I hope that you check this out at your local library or bookstore.  This is a great series and so excited to see the next book in this great series.
