Where Hope Begins by Catherine West: New Release with Review

I was sent this book from BookLook.  My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review. 


"In the aftermath of her husband’s act of adultery and abandonment, Savannah must finally face the ghosts that haunt her and discover for herself whether authentic faith, grace, and ultimate healing really do exist.

When her husband of twenty-one years leaves her, Savannah Barrington believes she’s lost almost everything she’s ever loved. With her daughter in college and her son in boarding school, Savannah retreats to her parents’ lake house in the Berkshires, where hope and healing come in the form of an old woman’s wisdom, a little girl’s laughter, a touch of magic, and a handsome man who’s willing to risk his own heart to prove she’s still worth loving.

But when her husband asks to reconcile, Savannah is faced with the hardest challenge of all: Forgiving the unforgivable. Somehow she must find freedom from the chains of their past and move forward, or face an unknown future without him."

My Rating: 3 Stars

This book is breaking my heart not only for the book itself, but my rating for the book.  This deals with so many serious and heartbreaking issues and I agree with others that you will need tissue on hand as I cried several times throughout the story.  This starts off with finding out Samantha’s husband has been cheating on her.  If you do not like books that deal with cheating, you will not like this.  However; this is so much more than that as it deals with marriage (the ups and downs), suicide, loss,  Hope and Love!  It is heartbreaking! I absolutely loved how everything is connected at the end.  It was so powerful!

I am so torn!  The beginning and the ending of this were so amazing and brought out so many emotions that is even hard to say what this story really is about.  However; the middle dragged on for me and I found myself skimming and bored until things started to pick up.  This is why I am only giving this three stars even though I want to give the emotional impact a five star! 

Overall, this was great for a good cry and I look forward to reading more from the author in the future.
