Hope in My Heart review
About the Book:
Hope in My Heart is a collection of short, heartwarming stories with characters in need of hope. In "Love Unexpected" a car crash brings commitment-wary Sebastian and career woman Chandra together. Neither is looking for romance, but those around them see the potential, and Sebastian and Chandra discover that sometimes love shows up unexpectedly. Christmastime is the setting for the middle story, "The Best Gift" Christina desires to lose ten pounds so she can fit into her dress for her sister's wedding. Jordan wishes her mom would stop trying to marry her off. And Joshua hopes to be reunited with his ex-girlfriend but eventually learns that the best gift this Christmas will be the restoration of his relationship with God. In "Peace and Love" three characters living in a metropolitan area are desperately searching. Elle, a starving artist, aspires to become a paid professional. Eric, a divorce attorney, wants to resolve his issues concerning his parents' divorce. Kristine anticipates finding her birth mom before she marries Derek. All characters pray their searches will conclude this holiday season and fill their hearts with peace and love.

Three short stories in one book - great snippets of sweet faith-based Christmas holiday romance and new starts for those who like their reading on the dash. These nicely set tales feature characters who have room to grow; men and women who realize life is bigger than their own little orbits. From the self-centered personal trainer to the lawyer who works and plays much too hard to notice a stable relationship has her own desk right outside his office, to the young lady looking for a job and a woman looking for her mom, there's something for everyone in Hope in My Heart. Kudos to Ms. Goring. Recommended for readers of love and romance and belief in persistence.
