    Best One Yet!

    This is the fifth book in the Eagle Harbor series. I have enjoyed each installment and read them as they come out, even though each can be read as a standalone. The continuing story in a familiar place with characters both new and known keeps drawing me back and I relish checking in to one of my favorite fictional worlds each time I pick up a new one. This novel focuses primarily on Thomas and Jessalyn. His return after five years poses difficulties rather than a cheerful reunion, but it isn't long before the reader begins to understand it is a series of misunderstandings and miscommunications that led to the length of time apart. There is still much to work out, however, and both characters are sympathetic given the circumstances. Forgiveness is a weighty theme in this book. There is so much hurt to go around and frustration at trying to make things right even as the other person tosses hurdle after hurdle in the way of reconciliation. But in the difficult conversations where we aren't sure that the family will be reunited, even then a thread of grace runs through with each acknowledging their own mistakes and accepting responsibility. The characters are all too realistic, though, and the temptation to press a momentary advantage or a flat refusal to consider alternative plans sends them back to the beginning several times. There are also lingering trust issues. But even in the serious and difficult scenes of a couple working their way back to each other, moments of humor add a little levity to keep things from becoming too heavy, and the continuing theme of hope keeps the mood from getting too dark. I enjoy the historical detail and the opportunity to visit Eagle Harbor again. The larger cast of characters continue to make cameos in Eagle Harbor, and my favorite ongoing thread is the tentative steps the Cummings brothers take toward each other. I would highly recommend this book to those who like historical romance, starting at the beginning if possible for maximum enjoyment. I eagerly await the next novel in the series! I received a free copy of this book from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all of the opinions expressed are both honest and my own.

    Fascinating

    What a fascinating and stunning book. I cannot comprehend all the feelings the characters felt in this novel. Author Naomi Rawlings is an amazing author. I became very involved in the storyline until I couldn't stop reading. You will not want to miss this book and I definitely recommend reading Love's Winter Hope by Author Naomi Rawlings. I received a complimentary copy from the author. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.

    Love's Winter Hope

    I love every moment I spend in Eagle Harbor! I always marvel at the strength of Rawlings’ characters and their resilience in times of trial, and Jessalyn and Thomas’s story is no exception. Inspiration is beautifully woven through their journey, and my heart was stirred for this couple and the struggles they endured. Love’s Winter Hope is a tender tale of faith and forgiveness and one I highly recommend! Love’s Winter Hope is Book 5 of the Eagle Harbor series and can be read independently of its predecessors. However, reading the series in order has allowed me to come to know and love this historical Michigan town and its residents, and I delight in the opportunity to return with each release. I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

    Best book in the Eagle Harbor Series

    Pamela Lunsford rated a book it was amazing 13 minutes ago Love's Winter Hope by Naomi Rawlings Love's Winter Hope (Eagle Harbor #5) by Naomi Rawlings (Goodreads Author) Read I loved Love's Winter Hope, the fifth book in the series Eagle Harbor. It was so refreshing to read a book about a married couple who had problems in their marriage. A five year separation because of misunderstandings and not trying hard enough to find each other. Learning to pray together and letting God help them was beautiful. From the beginning Jessalyn and Thomas story was like so many marriages. But the author Naomi Rawlings help the reader see and feel how two people can misunderstand what the other has said. You feel the hurt, betrayal and how to trust again. Thomas has been my favorite hero in this series so far. He understands his mistakes and wants Jessalyn to forgive and makes their marriage work. Jessalyn has no trust in Thomas! Thomas is so patient and loving and you wonder if Jessalyn can see how he is so different from five years before. Also there's a big mystery going on around town and I am always wondering you is doing all the mean things that's happening. If you like mystery then you'll like this book. If you like Christian Fiction you'll really like Love's Winter Hope. You'll fall in love with these characters and learn about patience and with the Trust in the Lord anything is possible. I received a complimentary copy of the book. No review was required and all thoughts expressed are entirely mine.

    Another great Eagle Harbor story!

    I've fallen in love with the Eagle Harbor series! I appreciate the strong characters that endure a harsh landscape and trying circumstances, turning to their faith and each other. Jessalyn is a good friend to the other women in the community and has built a successful business on her own while raising young children. She has a difficult time accepting Thomas when he returns, even though it was someone else's actions that prevented them from communicating. It takes a lot for Thomas to regain her acceptance and trust, and she worries constantly over the future. I admired that Thomas led his family with gentleness and relied on the Lord for guidance when he struggled with patience. There is an element of suspense with a series of robberies and shady men lurking around, and part of the story is told from Isaac's perspective as the sheriff, also providing a lead-in for his story in the next book. I'm really looking forward to reading more! (I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions in this review are my own)
