Hope Springs by Kim Cash Tate

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.
Review:

Where shall I begin?  This book has just about every situation in it that you can think of, well almost.  There’s marriage and divorce issues, illegitimate children, racism, cancer, death, job changes and all of the family tension that goes with it all.
This book is sure to take hold of your attention, and hold on to it for a little while.  Really, all you need is a little while to read this book.  It is a pretty fast read.
The only thing that bothered me about this book was that it was another story where someone has cancer.  It seems like every time I turn around, I am reading a story line where someone is either sick with cancer or dies of cancer.  I guess I am just tired of that.
A really nice thing about this book is that you see where it is possible to bring two churches together, and not just any two churches.  Here is where part of the racism comes in.  There is a “white” church and a “black” church.  The two pastors are best friends, how funny is that?  Anyway, there’s a great story line about combining the churches and bible studies.
Another really nice this about this book is that the characters pretty much all pray about where they are in their life and for God to lead them or guide them in the right direction.  I find myself needing to use the same prayer, and it is wonderful to see results from those prayers.  It was nice to see that somehow that was on someone else’s mind as well.
Great story.  There are a lot of characters, but after you get into the book a little bit they are very easy to follow.
Hope you check this title out for yourself!
