About this ebook

<b/>They’ve been apart so long they feel like strangers… but can faded memories and forgotten love lead to a Christmas full of hope?</b>
When Jessalyn Dowrick’s husband left her and their three daughters to head west five years earlier, she had no choice but to pick up the pieces of her broken life and continue without him, eventually supporting herself as Eagle Harbor’s seamstress, and secretly hoping her husband would return. But days soon slipped into months, and months into years, all without word of Thomas or a cent of the money he’d promised to send.
While working day and night to build a new life that his wife would be proud of, Thomas wrote Jessalyn every week asking her to come to South Dakota. But she never arrived. In fact, she never answered a single one of his letters. When he returns to Eagle Harbor in time for Christmas, he finds a woman who not only hadn’t received his letters, but also thought him dead.
With Christmas quickly approaching and storms trapping Thomas in town until the harbor can reopen, will he be able to convince his wife he’s worth a second chance?

I love every moment I spend in Eagle Harbor! I always marvel at the strength of Rawlings’ characters and their resilience in times of trial, and Jessalyn and Thomas’s story is no exception. Inspiration is beautifully woven through their journey, and my heart was stirred for this couple and the struggles they endured. Love’s Winter Hope is a tender tale of faith and forgiveness and one I highly recommend! Love’s Winter Hope is Book 5 of the Eagle Harbor series and can be read independently of its predecessors. However, reading the series in order has allowed me to come to know and love this historical Michigan town and its residents, and I delight in the opportunity to return with each release. I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

I've been very interested in reading this story since the first time I met Jessalynn in Love's Unfading Light, book one, and learned of her situation. Let me tell ya', it did not disappoint. I absolutely loved it! There's a lot of misunderstanding, miscommunication, and many years of hurt for Jessalynn and her recently returned husband, Thomas, to try and overcome. I didn't know what to expect from Thomas. I couldn't imagine what kind of guy would leave his wife and kids and not send any word for five years. It took a little bit for him to grow on me, but, as they say, there's two sides to every story, and it wasn't long before I came to really like him. I really felt for both of them. Forgiveness isn't easy, but sometimes trusting again is even harder. I was rooting for them and enjoyed watching them work through some tough issues. I was so happy to be back in Eagle Harbor and to catch up with 'old friends'. I've loved every single one of the books in this series. If you're a fan of historical romance, don't miss out on this wonderful series! I can't wait to read Isaac and Aileen's story in book six, Love's Bright Tomorrow. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and comments are my own opinion.

Pamela Lunsford rated a book it was amazing 13 minutes ago Love's Winter Hope by Naomi Rawlings Love's Winter Hope (Eagle Harbor #5) by Naomi Rawlings (Goodreads Author) Read I loved Love's Winter Hope, the fifth book in the series Eagle Harbor. It was so refreshing to read a book about a married couple who had problems in their marriage. A five year separation because of misunderstandings and not trying hard enough to find each other. Learning to pray together and letting God help them was beautiful. From the beginning Jessalyn and Thomas story was like so many marriages. But the author Naomi Rawlings help the reader see and feel how two people can misunderstand what the other has said. You feel the hurt, betrayal and how to trust again. Thomas has been my favorite hero in this series so far. He understands his mistakes and wants Jessalyn to forgive and makes their marriage work. Jessalyn has no trust in Thomas! Thomas is so patient and loving and you wonder if Jessalyn can see how he is so different from five years before. Also there's a big mystery going on around town and I am always wondering you is doing all the mean things that's happening. If you like mystery then you'll like this book. If you like Christian Fiction you'll really like Love's Winter Hope. You'll fall in love with these characters and learn about patience and with the Trust in the Lord anything is possible. I received a complimentary copy of the book. No review was required and all thoughts expressed are entirely mine.
