Product Description

Hope Springs, North Carolina, is the epitome of small town life-a place filled with quiet streets where families have been friends for generations, a place where there's not a lot of change. That is, until three women find themselves planted there for a season.

Janelle 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 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 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, families, and their churches that have long been divided along racial lines. God's plan for them in Hope Springs is bigger than they ever imagined.

Publisher's Description

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.

"Kim Cash Tate draws us into a world where the dreams, desires, missteps, and matters of the heart we discover mirror our own. She is a master at crafting characters who make you forget you're reading fiction. By the end of Hope Springs, you'll feel as if you're cheering on members of your extended family." —Stacy Hawkins Adams, bestselling author of Coming Home and The Someday List

“Tate expertly crafts an intriguing narrative that explores unrequited love, true faith, and the complicated politics of change in the Christian church . . . [an] affecting tale about forgiveness and following God’s call.” —Publishers Weekly

Publisher's Weekly

In this engaging novel, Tate (Cherished) follows the Sanders and Dillon families in the novel’s eponymous and tiny Southern town. When a pillar of the community falls ill, the main characters are confronted with their own mortality, unresolved romances from the past, and a long-held family secret. Tate expertly crafts an intriguing narrative that explores unrequited love, true faith, and the complicated politics of change in the Christian church. There are many characters, as intimated by the two family trees that open the book, but a lot of plot comes packed with nearly all of them—sisters, cousins, and all. Some parts of the book touch on racial reconciliation and church administration; those are less compelling than the profound revelations of the town’s residents in this affecting tale about forgiveness and following God’s call.

Editorial Reviews

'engaging.' 'Tate expertly crafts an intriguing narrative that explores unrequited love, true faith, and the complicated politics of change in the Christian church.' '...affecting tale about forgiveness and following God’s call.”
“Tate has penned another meaningful novel about the lives of three distinct women. Themes of faith and trusting God for direction in life and family resonate throughout this novel. The author has a gift for writing characters that are so realistic readers will be able to see all parts of themselves---good and bad---mirrored in them.”
“Three women in a small North Carolina town face disappointments and move toward healing. Tate’s (Cherished; Faithful) latest novel is a good choice for reading groups who enjoy contemporary women’s fiction with a strong Christian element (the publisher plans several book club campaigns).”
“Kim Cash Tate has created relatable characters and a heartwarming story with a valuable message on the importance and healing power of love, acceptance, reconciliation, and unity not only within families and friendships but in the body of Christ as well.”
