Hope Harbor is a place of refuge and second chances. A place many call home and one that calls home those who are lost. This was a lovely novel from Irene Hannon. I love everything about this gem of a novel. The title, Hope Harbor, is our Jesus. It's the place we find faith grow through trial and tribulation.
As we see in this novel circumstances change lives. Change isn't always wanted. Circumstance isn't always caused by our actions, but the actions of others, and then it touches our lives forevermore in ways that stir all sense of calm in life.
Irene Hannon is gifted with the pen and here again she brings me to a place where I can see faith alive and see that God is always moving even when all seems quiet and unchanging. Hope Harbor is a great place to visit. We meet characters that are real. Through the storyline we grow to love them and understand them more and more as the story weaves their lives of hope together.
Everything in God's perfect timing. This is what we see here in these black and white pages that come alive with all doubt left behind as these characters move forward in hope. Hope is all they have. As what is it that we gain from this novel? To know that hope is all we need.
Irene Hannon never disappoints. She writes in such a way that brings the reader into the weave of her story to find themselves and to always know that no matter the circumstance there is a God who is watching and making a way.
This novel was a gift from Revell for sharing my review.
