After losing her child, Ginger Dysart was lost in grief. But since moving to Thunder Point, a small town on the Oregon coast, and with the help of her cousin Ray Anne, Ginger is finally moving forward. Her job at the flower shop is peaceful and fulfilling, and she's excited to start her first big assignment, assisting with the Lacoumette wedding.
In spite of her lasting heartache, Ginger finds herself swept up in the pleasure of the occasion. But the beauty of the Lacoumette farm and the joy of the gregarious family are ruined by an unfortunate encounter with the bride's brother, Matt. Struggling with painful memories of his own recent divorce, Matt makes a drunken spectacle of himself and Ginger when he tries to make a pass at her, forcing Ginger to flee the scene in embarrassment.
But when Matt shows up at the flower shop determined to make amends, what started out as a humiliating first meeting blossoms into something much deeper than either of them expected. Discovering they have a lot in common, they form a solid friendship, though everyone around them worries that Ginger will end up with a broken heart yet again. But if Ginger has the courage to embrace the future, and if Matt can finally learn to let go of the past, there may still be hope for a happy ending.
A New Hope by Robyn Carr
A New Hope is a marvelous story of new beginnings.
After facing a double dose of tremendous and life altering grief, where do you turn? For Ginger Dysart, it was Thunder Point.
I guess you could say, Ginger is learning to live again when Matt stumbles into Ginger's path. Together they learn that even with deep hurt life still goes on.
Heartfelt, sexy and wonderfully real, the people you meet at Thunder Point will stick with you long after the story ends.
For me, I love Carr's ability to bring a community alive in her work. Every story draws us deeper into the heart of that community making us yearn for more.
