How does one survive a tragedy beyond imagination? How do we recover from guilt? How do we rebuilt our life after trauma? How can we best help our loved ones heal? What binds two people together no matter what? June Converse deals expertly with each of these questions in her second novel Journey to Hope.
Her characters work their way through an emotional terrain that most of us never enter. Yet as a trauma survivor myself, I found comfort in the gentle way Converse deals with them and us, her readers. I felt myself in Kathleen and my partner in Matt.
Journey to Hope is raw and real and helps us to see that regardless of our past, there is always hope for our future. Thank you for the reminder.
This is a powerful love story and I was rooting for Kathleen and Matt. I also loved the theme of the letters from Betty.
A great read that has it all. A beautiful beach, a mysterious women, a horrific crime, and the capacity of the human heart to love despite tragedy.
