After waking up from her failed suicide attempt, Hope finds herself in the behavioral unit of a hospital and under the insightful care of an older psychiatrist, Dr. Miller, who helps her learn the importance of being more proactive and less reactive.
Upon being discharged from the hospital, Hope’s friend, Liz, invites her to go on a mission trip with the church to the Central American country of Honduras and be an interpreter for the mission team. Although she’s usually reluctant to be in the spotlight, Hope agrees to go and help.
Nothing could have prepared her or the rest of the team for the emotional impact that hits them once they land. The incongruency of the natural beauty of the country cast against the abject poverty of the people is impossible to rectify.
Everywhere Hope goes children are attracted to her and she to them. The fact that many of them are homeless pulls at her heartstrings.
One of the team members is a physician, Dr. Henry Guest. More than once, Hope and he are teamed together in the medical clinic. Liz tells her Henry is clearly interested in her, but Hope doesn’t believe her—until it becomes obvious he is!
Meanwhile, Michael Trent’s life continues to spiral out of control, with disastrous results.
Just before leaving Honduras, Hope is faced with a monumental decision, a decision that could fundamentally change the course of her life.
In “Hope Returns” Hope finally finds the peace and happiness she’s been searching for most of her life—but finds it in a surprising way and in the most unexpected of places.
Meanwhile, Michael remains trapped between his sex addiction and his desire to live a godly life. He vacillates between pursuing Hope and pursuing Liz. His world is turned upside down, though, when a bombshell goes off—the mysterious death and possible suicide of his wife, Sarah. He believes Brittany played a role in Sarah’s death, but all the clues in the case point to him.
For Hope, Sarah’s death plays perfectly into her scheme and gives her the excuse she needs to reach out to Michael and spend time with him in an effort to comfort him in his loss. It seems so simple to her—she and Michael and the child can build a new life together.
However, one by one the threads in Hope’s plan unravel, resulting in tragedy and proving love is blind.
