When Hope Prevails Book Review


About the Book 
When Beth Thatcher returns to Coal Valley, she has much to be excited about. She anticipates Jarrick's proposal of marriage and perhaps a spring wedding. The mine is expanding, and there are more schoolchildren than ever.
But the town's rapid growth brings many challenges. A second teacher is assigned, and Beth finds herself going head-to-head with a very different philosophy of education--one that dismisses religion and rejects God. Fearful for the children who sit under the influence of Robert Harris Hughes, Beth struggles to know how to respond.
At the same time, Beth wonders if Jarrick is considering a position at her father's company simply for her sake. Should she admit her feelings on the matter? Or keep silent and allow Jarrick to make up his own mind? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

This is the third book in this series that is a companion to the TV show When Calls the Heart. If you haven't read the previous books, I highly recommend that you do before picking this one up. I adore the cover of this novel and the story line simply continues on from before. It's very different than the TV show so at times I get a tad confused but I still love the setting and the characters. Big things happen within these pages that fans will be anxious to read about. I found the plot not as exciting as some but still a solid historical read. 

Four stars. 

"I received this book from Bethany House for free in exchange for an honest review."
