We all have those times that we feel like a failure. This is so much worse. Chad Richardson has not only destroyed his life by choosing substances over everything but, he has trampled upon everyone, most of all his wife Laila.
After a string nasty relapses, Chad leaves town leaving chaos in his wake. He has a secret that makes running seem like the only option. He finds the willpower to get clean and wants to have a triumphant return after he receives his one year sobriety chip but, a call in the middle of the night leaves him questioning his plan. What he wants more than anything is to win back the heart and trust of his now ex-wife (due to a non-contested divorce) but, he may already be too late.
Laila Richardson wants desperately to just move on. Move on from the wreckage that was her marriage to her high school sweetheart Chad, move out of the town she was born and raised in, and finally move on with a new man. Why can’t she have the fairytale ending? She has the man and the plan, even the cute little cottage. She thinks she is right on track when, a bombshell shows back up on her front porch after years without so much as a word.
I won’t spoil the book for you but, man this is an awesome book! Picking up a few months after “My Hope Next Door” left off, you see Laila in the best place she has been in a long time. She is on the road to mending a broken relationship with her childhood best friend, Katie (the main character from My Hope Next Door). Through this relationship she is seeing that she can’t change Chad. Chad must make the decision to change himself. This takes a huge weight off her shoulders. However, it still doesn’t fill the hole in her heart.
Chad’s life has drastically changed in the last nine months. He has gotten sober, got a job, kept the job, and started building a life outside of the drug world. Chad is a living testament to all the struggles of those faced with a life of addiction. However, his struggles are only just beginning when he stands face-to-face with Laila on what was once “their” front porch.
“My Unexpected Hope” is so much more than a love story. Tammy L. Gray weaves a life-like epic that will have you riding a full range roller-coaster of emotions throughout. In my opinion, she is a master of writing characters who could be your neighbor or someone else you know. Trust is so easy to lose but, so hard to win back. We all can relate to a situation where trust has either been won or lost. Can Chad regain the trust of Laila and ultimately rebuild the marriage he let fall apart? Can Laila see past years of hurt and broken promises from the one who vowed to cherish her above all else? Read “My Unexpected Hope” by Tammy L. Gray to find out.
**Note: I did receive an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Thank you to this author for showing that reconciliation can be a possibility when all of the elements are there.
Tammy L. Gray never fails to blow me away in how she deals with some of the most tragic circumstances of life while clearly showing the power of God to overcome, heal, and redeem. She never glosses over or minimizes the situations which only show God's mightiness to redeem any brokenness we face.

Laila has her doubts and is torn between the new life she's making for herself and the love and deep connection she's always had with Chad.
What can I say? This is a book with such a deep emotional connection between Chad and Laila that you're rooting for them right from the start. This is a compelling read and one which doesn't shy away from the darker issues of alcoholism, drug use and the long lasting effects they can have.
However, it's also a story of hope, love and redemption. A moving, emotional read with an eternal hope weaved through the pages.
As always, Tammy never disappoints.
