I had my doubts, but intrigue won over. Tavish, our favourite Irishman, is in need of a happy ending for himself. He's so good and kind. Everyone's hero. He carries the weight of the 'O'Connor world' on his shoulders. He's moved his younger brother Finbarr into his home, in efforts to help restore the lost soul, brought about by physical damage to his eyes. The result of the tragic and deadly fire. With little hope for improvement his family enlist the help of a 'Mr' Attwater, a teacher of the blind from St Louis. Little do they know that the person they've sent for is going to turn this 'freshly resolved of conflict' community, upside down.
Turns out there couldn't be anything worse than the Reds, that is, unless they happen to be English. Miss Cecily Attwater arrives into the train depot hopeful and eager to meet her new student. What she encounters is a harsh kind of prejudice like one she's never endured. Something far beyond what she expects to be the cause - her debilitating disease. The endless passages of heartbreaking emotional & physical pain are not easy on my reader soul. Being English, I do understand the history and cause of the deep seated struggle the Irish had to deal with. Naturally, the closer the generations are to the experience, the deeper the pain. The more raw the wound. Biddy especially (and understandably) in this story expresses, and is, a stark reminder of the reasons why the Irish cannot abide Cecily's presence.
This story takes you on such a tender pathway towards healing, contrasted by the harsh realities of the tragedy of blindness. Conflict resolution based on decades of hurt and suffering. This was by no means an easy read, but one filled with obvious love and hope, despite the difficult road ahead.
There is a line in this book that stopped me in my tracks. It says “If you can manage the task in blackness, you can manage it in the light.” This touched my heart in a surprising way. Of course, here we are referring to the physical obstacle of performing tasks for an almost blind person. However, as I pondered the overwhelming blackness we sometimes feel emotionally, or spiritually - we have a choice. Allow it to consume us, or find someway to either battle through the darkness until it lifts, or find a way to claw your way out. How often do we wish for the relative ease of light? Everything being joyful and content in life. When we find ourselves encased in darkness - there is something strengthening about knowing you endured it, and returned to the light a much more capable person. If you can get through it in the dark, you will be so much more strengthened in the light.
Sarah Eden has written this third Hope Springs book with so much care and attention. There were times when I thought to myself, why can't we have a happier tale? There is so much unhappiness and sadness from many aspects of the story. The reality is though that we have a complex plot, in which once again you will become deeply drawn into. It's one that will have you reading when you should be doing important things like 'adulting' and I seriously couldn't put it down!
Make sure you begin this series at the beginning, with book 1, 'Longing for Home', these are not stand alone stories. So beautifully written, they will touch the tender part of your heart and soul.
This can be read alone and still loved and appreciated, but if you've read the other books about Hope Springs, you are already neck deep in a story full of love, redemption and heartache in this tiny town in the West.
There are hurts so deep it takes a really huge leap of faith to overcome, and in this book we see so many. Hurts that go through generations, hurts more recent, hurts caused by death, hurts caused by callous words, hurts caused by illness, hurts caused by prejudice, and just so much to relate to, because who isn't hurting in some way, really?
It's beautiful as these hurts, this grief, are overcome, not fully, but as they are faced and each one hurting finds what they need that helps them.
The best part of Sarah Eden's books are the smiles through the pain. We can feel like Tavish, and keep our humor while we deal with our anguish. The joy is there to find. I love how every book makes me laugh, even as I'm upset that she made me cry.
Sarah Eden has done it again, and I'm more in love with her books than ever.
I pre-ordered this book months ahead of time so I'd get it on release day because I knew I would like it. It surpassed my expectations.
I also was given the opportunity to receive a free review copy ahead of time in exchange for an honest review. My opinion is my own.
I highly recommend this book, whether you are already familiar with Hope Springs or not.
