Overview

A 'captivating novel of loss and recovery'(Katheleen Maloy, author of Every Last Cuckoo) and new beginnings, set in a small town in Maine.

Several months after her husband's sudden death, and troubled by one night's indiscretion, Caroline Waverly seeks refuge in the house she's inherited in East Hope, Maine. There she finds the courage to face the consequences of her choices-her precarious finances, her alienated college-age son, and the man she left behind.

Will Harmon also puts his old life behind him, arriving in East Hope to run the local used bookshop. As he questions his desires and struggles with his failing marriage, Will yearns for the wisdom to do what is right.

Then Caroline walks into Will's bookstore, and they establish a tentative friendship-with the promise of something more. As they seek to rescue what is most important in their lives, they cling to a distant hope-for understanding, for family, and for love.

I couldn't read this wonderful book fast enough and when I finished it I was sorry it ended so soon. I really enjoyed it, I found I was dreaming about the characters at night. Very enjoyable and I liked that the author left the ending to my imagination. I am looking forward to reading everything else that this author has written.

East of Hope is a fun read. There are just enough twists and turns to keep your interest and the author paints a rich texture of place and seasons in Maine. Good summer reading.

Our book club is fired up discussing "Did Caroline make the right decision?" "What would you do?" "How would you handle son, Rob?" Could I live in East Hope, Maine? And then there are the characters, Will and Harry....lots of controversy there! The descriptions in the book are fantastic, the characters realistic and the choices made are difficult. Thanks for a good read, Katharine Davis.

This book is wonderful and it is a heart moment anf I always cry when I get to my favorit part. The author did a amazing job and she had a lot of figertive lanugage and a lot of FANBOYS and a lot of AAWWWBISS too. This is the best book i ever read and this is my 50th time reading it. P.S. Me raeding it 50 times is infact true.

This the the book you'll save for a rainy afternoon. It is an easy read, but will not challenge you in anyway. The ending left me puzzled. It did have some nice settings a small town on the Maine coast.
