The fictional town of Hope discovers the importance of forgiveness, overcoming prejudice, and the dangers of keeping unhealthy family secrets.

Jack Cornwall lost everything during the Civil War, so when his beloved nephew Chipper is reclaimed by his father, Cornwall vows revenge on the man who took away his last link with the past. Arriving in the town of Hope, Jack finds Chipper happy in his new family. Caitrin Murphy, a cheerful Irish immigrant, helps him realizes that taking Chipper away would be cruel.

Jack soon realizes that serious changes are needed before he can be truly happy.

"The Town of Hope" series continues with this 2nd book. This is Jack & Caitrin's story. Caitrin's family is VERY Irish and bring quite some angry issues from the homeland to how they treat Jack & his family when they arrive to start a new life in Hope. I was surprised with how mean the O'Toole family was to the Cornwalls, but it takes a town working together for everyone to come together and finall accept everyone's different cultures. "Prairie Rose" was Book 1 in this series and you must read first.....then this book "Prairie Fire"....and then after this is "Prairie Storm". I'm reading this now and like it so far!

This is part of a wonderful series that has a very good focus on God and the HOPE that He gives us.

Being from Kansas myself I truly enjoyed reading a great book about my home state. The characters were believable and I particularly liked the way the Gospel was presented.

I wanted to throw myself into Jacks arms and allow him to just wrap his arms around me and stay there where all the safty and secure feeling were made. Jack went beyond to stand up for his "new" growing faith and love for the Lord and protect his family. I was so frustrated by Jimmy O'Tools narrow & un-forgiving heart (and he called himself a Christian).. Jack not only forgave Jimmy & the townsfold but risked his own lift to save Jimmy...

The trilogy of A Town called Hoe was refreshing and encouraging.

This book was not as good as Prairie Rose but it was readable. I didn't think the two main characters were real believable. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. However I do like to read Catherine Palmer.

This is a new author to me and kept me on the edge of my seat. The value is amazing. I have read all three Prairie books and loved them. "Hope" she is doing more.

This is a great book. I have read all the series. I was very surprised to read that the characters in the book lived in Hope Kansas because when I lived in Kansas I didnt live to far from there. I would really recommend this book. Great read

I began with the first book in the Town Called Hope series and read straight through #4. I found all of them to be very good reads, especially if you enjoy the daily ups and downs of Christian living back in pioneer times.

What a great series - loved watching the town of Hope grow from nothing but a few families living on a prairie. They have such heart and such faith, they make it through any challenge and come out stronger. A feel good series!

This is second book. The first was free, it was Prairie Rose. This book is a little shorter than the free book, both in the range of two hundred pages. I enjoyed this book as well as the first. I believe there is another third book.
