Where Hope Begins Review


About the Book
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. (goodreads)

My Thoughts

This is by far Catherine West's best novel! I was absolutely engrossed with this book and I really can't recommend it enough. The characters are all very well written and the plot well thought out. There is adultery, divorce, suicide (nothing graphic), and the loss of a loved ones. So as you can imagine this is an emotional book, nothing light or fluffy. The biggest part was how the marriage was written, even after finishing this story it is staying with me. I loved how nothing in this book was easy and how realistic the dialogue and life situations were. I loved the secondary characters and how the ending ties everything together. With all of the touchy subjects within it's pages, this book was so well done it has made my top favorite books list. 

Five stars!
