'engaging.' 'Tate expertly crafts an intriguing narrative that explores unrequited love, true faith, and the complicated politics of change in the Christian church.' '...affecting tale about forgiveness and following God’s call.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Tate has penned another meaningful novel about the lives of three distinct women. Themes of faith and trusting God for direction in life and family resonate throughout this novel. The author has a gift for writing characters that are so realistic readers will be able to see all parts of themselves---good and bad---mirrored in them.” (Romantic Times, four-star review)
“Three women in a small North Carolina town face disappointments and move toward healing. Tate’s (Cherished; Faithful) latest novel is a good choice for reading groups who enjoy contemporary women’s fiction with a strong Christian element (the publisher plans several book club campaigns).” (Library Journal)
“Kim Cash Tate has created relatable characters and a heartwarming story with a valuable message on the importance and healing power of love, acceptance, reconciliation, and unity not only within families and friendships but in the body of Christ as well.” (CBA Retailers + Resources)

Becca Anderson is finally living her dream. She has been invited to speak at The National Christian Women's Conference, and maybe even greater things will follow. Her husband has been called to Pastor his late father's church in Hope Springs, which means relocation to a small town. How will the move affect her dream, her marriage, and her walk with the Lord?
Stephanie London is happily married and living in St. Louis. A visit to Hope Springs reunites her with family she hasn't seen in years, and it also teaches her a few things about herself.
The first thing I thought as I began to read was that it would have been nice if this book had not been released until December or maybe even November, around Thanksgiving. Since it's Christmas when the story begins, reading it during the Christmas season would have made for a even cozier reading experience. Yes, I could have waited, but I had read Faithful, and I was reading Cherished when I bought Hope Springs, so - since I really enjoyed the first two books - I was eager to read more of Tate's work.
Predominately white churches, predominately black churches - Tate brings attention to the division among believers, teaching a lesson Christians will benefit from. There are also messages about how harmful family secrets can be, putting someone's needs before your own, learning how to hear from God, family unity and forgiveness.
Some of Tate's fictional characters from Faithful and Cherished are in this book, but the story mostly revolves around new characters. There are quite a few of them to keep track of - I had to go back a few sentences every now and then to make sure I had things straight, but Hope Springs was as inspirational, engaging and thought-provoking as Tate's previous novels.
One of the mysteries of life is how we come to the places where we end up. Kim skillfully gives us characters with pasts that hold secrets, twists, and turns and then she artistically unwinds them. We get to see where the characters come from, what's happened in their pasts, and how they end up in Hope Springs. Each of these women come out changed and with a different view of what it means to see their purpose unfold when they submit fully to the gentle tug of God.
Hope Springs inspired, motivated, and humbled me.
Kim did not disappoint in this novel. I look forward to her next release in April 2013.
I highly recommend this book. Give yourself a chance to fall in love with these characters and enjoy watching God work. For me, this book encouraged, comforted and challenged (in a good way!). I'll be enjoying it for sometime to come, even though I've finished the last page.
p.s...I will be waiting for another!!!
