Hope shines brightest when all seems lost.

Stephanie London led a life of comfort and ease in St. Louis before feeling inexplicably drawn back to her father's roots in the tiny Southern town of Hope Springs. Charlotte Willoughby has lived there all her life and longs to make a new life somewhere else. Stephanie doesn t know exactly what she's doing there or how to occupy her time. And Charlotte doesn t understand why, despite her overbearing family and reminders of her failed engagement, she's suddenly led to stay.

Despite its small-town charm, Hope Springs itself is at a crossroads. After a failed reconciliation attempt by two well-meaning pastors, the town is split along racial and cultural lines, with little hope for redemption.

When a terrible tragedy puts Hope Springs on the national radar, the entire town is tested, and both Stephanie and Charlotte feel their lives unraveling. In the midst of heartache, though, they ll discover the true color of hope . . .

. . . journeys us through the challenge of breaking through prejudice and hurt for the sake of love and faith. Rachel Hauck, best-selling author of The Wedding Dress
