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?

Love's Winter Hope is a story of determination and dedication. How would you feel if your spouse disappeared for 5 years with no word to you or the family? Jessalyn has made a life for herself and her children, only to find that her husband is truly alive after all these years. The author tells a story that shows how misunderstandings and deceptions can be forgiven and trust can be found once again. A wonderful, touching love story. I enjoyed this story very much. I was given a copy of this story by the author and this is my personal honest opinion.

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.

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.
