 Hey everyone!  I'm thrilled to participate in the blog tour for Hope in the Dark by Hannah Wright!  This book doesn't release until May 25th, but I was given the opportunity to be an ARC reviewer -- so here's some information about the book before we get into the review!


Broken hearts, a town torn apart, and a new job. What could possibly go wrong?

Moving into the great unknown of Featherlight, Idaho, was a huge change for Elizabeth Matthews. But while Asheville, North Carolina was comfortingly familiar, it had left her with a broken heart and a determination to never trust a man again. 

Hard working Samuel Bryson is honor bound to provide for his widowed mother and siblings. Determined to live up to his own expectations of being just like his father, he will let nothing get in his way. And that includes marriage. 

Serene and cozy Featherlight has taken a turn into something much darker. Newly hired school teacher Elizabeth and Samuel find themselves desperately searching for answers to the suspicious criminal activity around them. They find themselves thrown into facing their worst fears... and each other. In the midst of many unknowns, will they find the courage to do what God is calling them to? 

AMAZON  -Releases May 25th!

This is a sweet book, perfect for fans of historical fiction.  I'm not sure what to say that WON'T spoil the book, but it's absolutely fantastic, the plot is paced pretty well (hence the concern for spoilers) and the characters are relatable.  I found it very easy to get interested in the book from the start, and ended up reading the second half of the book all in one sitting (which I rarely do when I'm reading on the computer, so I promise that's saying a lot!)  The characters are also pretty memorable, and there are a couple of interesting little plot twists concerning the secondary characters.  Wright presents a lot of good, wholesome Christian values in her book as well, especially pertaining to romance and forgiveness.  Overall, it's an enjoyable read, especially for historical fiction readers.
