Irene Hannon welcomes readers back to the quaint Oregon coast town of Hope Harbor.
About the Book
After tragedy upends her world, Jeannette Mason retreats to the tiny Oregon seaside town of Hope Harbor to create a new life. Vowing to avoid emotional attachments, she focuses on running her lavender farm and tea-room—until a new neighbor with a destructive dog and a forlorn little girl invades her turf. But she needn’t worry. Dr. Logan West is too busy coping with an unexpected family, a radical lifestyle change, and an unruly pup to have any interest in his aloof and disagreeable neighbor.
Yet when both Jeanette and Logan find themselves pulled into the life of a tattered Christian family fleeing persecution in war-torn Syria, might they discover that love sometimes comes calling when it’s least expected?
Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites readers back to the charming seaside town of Hope Harbor, where they are sure to find peace, healing, and a second chance at happiness.
Other Books in the Series
In My Opinion
I have read and enjoyed every book in Irene Hannon’s Hope Harbor series, but Driftwood Bay is hands down my favorite. One I will come back to read again. Because this story is a powerful and emotional one that deals with the difficult subjects of loss and grief.
Through Logan, Jeanette, Molly, and the three members of the Shabos family, Hannon examines different ways people grieve. And though it would be impossible to cover every reaction to loss, Hannon’s approach is very well-rounded.
For me, the two little girls stole the show (and had me in tears a couple of times while reading). But the adults and their stories were enjoyable, and these characters are people I would befriend in the real world. And, of course, there are appearances from the Hope Harbor residents we’ve gotten to know over the series. (Raise your hand with me if you wish you could visit Charlie for some fish tacos and a dose of his wisdom. Or listen in on the good-natured ribbing between the pastor and the priest.)
I’ve said this before, but Hope Harbor is an aptly named town as a place for hurting people to heal, for love to be found, and for the weight of grief to fall away. Kudos to Hannon for tackling hard topics while offering readers a glimmer of hope that lives on the other side.
