About the book:
In a small community where everyone is holding tight to something, the biggest challenge may be learning to let go.
Hope Springs, North Carolina, is the epitome of small town life-a place filled with quiet streets, a place where there's not a lot of change. Until three women suddenly find themselves planted there for a season.
Janelle hasn't gone back to Hope Springs for family reunions since losing her husband. But when she arrives for Christmas and learns that her grandmother is gravely ill, she decides to extend the stay. It isn't long before she runs into her first love, and feelings that have been dormant for more than a decade are reawakened.
Becca is finally on the trajectory she's longed for. Having been in the ministry trenches for years, she's been recruited as the newest speaker of a large Christian women's conference. But her husband feels called to become the pastor of his late father's church in Hope Springs.
And Stephanie has the ideal life-married to a doctor in St. Louis with absolutely nothing she has to do. When her cousin Janelle volunteers to stay in Hope Springs and care for their grandmother, she feels strangely compelled to do the same. It's a decision that will forever change her.
As these women come together, they soon recognize that healing is needed in their hearts, their families, and their churches. God's plan for them in Hope Springs-is bigger than they ever imagined.

Hope Springs is such a wonderful book and Kim Cash Tate is definitely an author I look forward to reading and reviewing much much more from!
The Sanders family gathers in Hope Springs for their annual Christmas. This year, they learn that Grandma Gerri is diagnosed with cancer. Cousins, Stephanie, Janelle, and Libby, all decide to stay and help care for Grandma Gerri. These characters as well as many of the others are all soooo real and I felt like I knew them! Hope Springs is filled with hope and redemption in the making. I laughed and cried and all I can say is "Go to your nearest Bookstore or get online and get this book!!!"
Kim Tate deals with some tough issues but that is just one of the MANY things I love about her writing! She does not shy away from these situations. Quite frankly, I am sooo glad there is someone who will face these issues head on! She shows how God can use those times in our life to mold and shape us to be all HE wants us to be and to bring HIM Glory as well!
This is a MUST read and if you haven't read any books from Mrs. Kim Tate, you will want to start with Faithful and Cherished.
ALSO.... Kim Cash Tate is giving away a Kindle Fire!!!
