Image of Where Hope Begins

West navigates the choppy waters of relationship struggles in her latest release, which is chock-full of raw emotion and beautiful prose. Wonderfully drawn characters and scenes pull the reader along on a rollercoaster ride of emotion as Savannah goes down a heartbreaking and, ultimately, healing path of faith and forgiveness. The characters (particularly Savannah, Clarice and Maysie) will continue to resonate with readers long after the final page is turned.

Savannah Barrington’s world collapses when she learns that her husband of over twenty years is an adulterer. With her kids away at school, she is feeling alone and decides to head to her parents’ lake house to figure out what to do next. She meets author Brock Chandler and his daughter, Maysie, as well as his Aunt Clarice, who owns the house next door. Will they help Savannah find healing and hope again? Is it possible for her to forgive her husband, or is it impossible to fix trust once it’s broken? (THOMAS NELSON, Jun., 368 pp., $15.99)
