Like a dandelion in the wind, Hope Ladley blows from one farm to the next, helping cook for the field hands during the harvest. Illiterate and often twisting cliches and Bible verses into mind-boggling observations, Hope leaves widower Jakob Stauffer baffled by her unconventional ways. But her sunny disposition and unstinting love make changes of a different kind around the place. His little daughter and the pregnant sister he's shielding from an abusive husband adore Hope, and things are getting accomplished even if Hope's methods are unique.
Then Jakob's brother-in-law shows up and threatens the newfound peace and happiness of the farm. With Jakob's future uncertain and his heart tangled, can the farmer convince Hope to take root and remain as his wife?

She is an absolute ray of sunshine on the Stauffer family farm, which is overshadowed with grief, sadness and fear. I loved the way hope and Hope influenced everyone so subtly they hardly noticed until one day everything looked so much brighter. I loved Jakob - devoted father, brother, friend and all-round gentleman. The villain was vividly described and so typical of his kind. Even though Hope couldn't read, she worked hard to hide God's Word in her heart, where it strengthened her, and those around her, time and again. It reminded me of the value of memorizing scripture and how important it is to cherish the Word of God. I think you'll enjoy this delightful story, full of delightful characters. I look forward to reading more from Cathy Marie Hake.

I laughed out loud more than a few times, and was saddened here and there. The story is wonderful - I could hardly put it down. And a wonderfully happy ending for everyone - a must for me to consider a book great. I promise, you will love this!
TinaWMesa, AZAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5July 29, 2011TinaWMesa, AZAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The main character has the faith of a giant.. that is how this book starts out and it continually grows into a beautiful love story of faith and healing in the broken heart - with the romantic ending longed for.
I loved the real life thread throughout this book. Many times we want to finish every task in the large, but the book shows that in small quantities we can build our faith as well as our storehouse! Healing takes time and our expectations can get in the way of seeing what God is doing to heal the people in our lives through the most whimsical of people.
Hope is the main character and now I see why it is her name. This tale is a faith builder and a heart healer and a romance for the real life person. Walk with "Hope" and see what God does and enjoy! You will not be disappointed!
Joyce5 Stars Out Of 5July 9, 2010JoyceWhat a great book! I have started reading to my husband at night, and this was the first book I read to him. Both he and I enjoyed it, and we absolutely loved Hope! I admire the way she was always so positive, in spite of the fact that she worked so hard! She almost made the hard work of that time seem like play, and was really inspiring to me! I sure would like to have her attitude toward housework and life! The Gooding series is very enjoyable, but I think Forevermore is my favorite book of the series! I love the author's sense of humor in her books also.
