Hometown Hope ~ book review
This was a great contemporary Christian fiction story, CLEAN Christian fiction,
about what God does, how He works in the lives of those who trust and depend on Him.
It’s a story about 3 people, mainly, Anna Delaney, Hoyt Bradley, and his daughter, Jess.
Jess has selective mutism, which I had never heard of until I read this book. She became mute after the death of her mother.
Anna is a bookstore owner, running a store her father had started and kept going until his death. Anna lives alone in the room above the bookstore. Her business is failing, and she’s not sure how to get it to start making a profit again, so she is kind of giving up.
Anna and Hoyt had known each other in high school, and through a quick series of events, they got re-acquainted. Hoyt was a praying man, depending on the LORD to give him wisdom and to help him daily. His daughter Jess is very important to him.
Something I found to be very creative, was how Mrs. Blount linked Anna and Jess. Read the book to find out more!
Laurel Blount is a God-gifted writer, and you don’t want to miss reading her books. She will immediately draw the reader into her richly descriptive stories about hope, perseverence, and building faith by depending on the Lord more and more.
My review here doesn’t do the book Hometown Hope enough justice. Let me assure you, if you like clean Christian fiction, you’ll greatly enjoy reading this book. Don’t pass it by! It will engage your imagination and entertain your mind. It will remind you of the importance of talking to the LORD daily! Thank you Laurel, and please don’t stop glorifying God in your books. You are a great storyteller!
Laurel Blount lives on a small farm in middle Georgia with her husband, their four children, and an assortment of very spoiled animals. She divides her time between farm chores, homeschooling, and writing. She’s busy, but she’s never bored!
