Book Review: Hope Harbor

Cover Art


From the Back:

Come home to Hope Harbor--where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.
Tracy Campbell never wanted to leave Hope Harbor, Oregon, or the idyllic three-generation cranberry farm where she grew up. But life--and love--altered her plans. Now she's home again--with a floundering farm to run . . . a tragic secret . . . and a wounded heart. Romance is not on her agenda. Nor is it on Michael Hunter's. The visitor from Chicago has daunting secrets and devastating regrets of his own. But when Tracy recruits him to help with a project that is close to her heart, winds of change begin to sweep through Hope Harbor, bringing healing, hope, and love to countless lives--including their own.

My Reflections:

Irene Hannon is another favourite author on mine, I simply cannot miss reading her works. I always enjoy books set in quaint little towns, in lighthouses or on a farm. Hannon's newest book Hope Harbor is set in the fictional coastal town of Hope Harbor.

The plot is realistic and as always Hannon's characters are multidimensional, so much so that I found myself actually relating to some of their struggles on a personal level. This book is more than just a quick read it is more character development on a deeper scale. The fact that nothing is ever a coincidence, but God's hand in our very lives resonates deeply in the depths of this book. Hannon masterfully paints the canvas and shines light into her characters hurts and regrets and thus helps her readers to possibly ponder their lives and trials. as well.

This book gets a page flipping rating not because of the suspense or drama but for the desire to know the outcome of the characters plight. Sometimes fictional books are not about the spine tingling suspense, or mindless fluff but more about life lessons and a deeper understanding of what God wants us to develop in our lives.

This book is not the usual Hannon style, but I quite enjoyed this one just the same. Love how God can work in our lives, even through a work of fiction!

I received this book free of charge from Garaf Martin Communications in return for my honest review. Thank you Graf Martin!
