About the book:
Amidst the snowy peaks of the Rocky Mountains in 1871, Daniel Hobart keeps to himself—a man with a hole in his heart that matches the scar on his face. But when Daniel starts having visions of a young girl crying out for help, he begins to fear that solitude may have caused him to lose his mind. Determined to find out the truth about the mysterious girl, Daniel travels into New Hope and learns that she’s the missing daughter of widow Lacy Ellis.
After a year of heartbreak, Lacy isn’t sure what to make of Daniel’s claims of seeing her daughter. But when he sets out to find Hannah on his own, Lacy decides to join him, allowing herself one last chance to hope. And as they retrace the long-cold trail of Hannah’s disappearance, two broken people manage to take some small comfort in each other, and in the possibility of a miracle…
What Ang is talking about:
I loved Miracle in New Hope right from the beginning. I found it to be a gripping page turner, even if the pages were on my Kindle.
The descriptions were so vivid I found myself shivering in the cold as we traveled the rugged Colorado mountain passes and grateful for the relief the fires offered at the end of long journeys.
The characters were just as well written with real wounds. I found myself cheering for Daniel and Lacy as they dealt with intense hurt and damage, then struggled through their desires to heal and move forward with their lives. Hannah’s character was an interesting twist that tied everything together with just the right touch of mystery and heart.
Overall I found Miracle in New Hope to be a perfectly delightful and emotional read, full of the kind of romance and magic you want at Christmas time all year long.If you pick it up and read I’m certain you won’t be disappointed! I wasn’t.
Personal favorite – a must read (A+)
