“When you lose everyone and everything you love, can you ever live again? Or love again?
An unimaginable trauma. A future that seems impossible. When your world shatters, how do you put it back together? When Matt Nelson found Kathleen on the beach, she’d been hiding behind a scarf and sunglasses for three years. She couldn’t hide her loneliness, and he couldn’t turn away. But when her flashbacks start, they’re both unprepared for the repercussions and the depth of her emotional suffering.
Kathleen agrees to return to intensive trauma recovery at The Charlotte Center, where the sounds and the smells and the images from that terrible night await her, demanding she confront her demons.”
Searing and at times brutal, this beautiful love story is not your mother’s romance novel. In “Journey to Hope,” we continue the story we began with author June Converse’s first installment, “Decide to Hope.” However, this book stands on its own.
Katherine, always supported by Matt, makes the courageous decision to take back her life after it was tragically destroyed. The details are not for the faint of heart but are necessary to understand why Katherine is so damaged.
I cheered Matt and Katherine on as they fought to get the lives they wanted and deserved. During these times, when we all need reasons to hope, this is the book to read.
I very rarely choose this genre, but I loved every moment of “Journey to Hope.” Be forewarned, this book will keep you up way past your bedtime until you finish every last page.
