The seventh Eternity Springs contemporary (after Reflection Point) is a heartwarming tale of courage and redemption. Hope Montgomery has spent five years searching and yearning for her kidnapped daughter, Holly. Hope still longs for Holly’s return, but has somehow learned to embrace life again. When she meets Lucca Romano, a handsome and venerated college basketball coach who suddenly left his job to hit the beach, she is struck by their chemistry and an inner turmoil they seem to share. As their relationship grows, so does their mutual respect and desire to help each other overcome their difficult pasts. But when doubts begin to surface about Hope’s ability to move forward, they must each reconsider the significance of past events and reflect upon the value of new love. A great cast of secondary characters—including Lucca’s mom, Maggie, and the town angel, Celeste Blessing—rounds out a story that will have readers cheering on their heroes.
