Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

Barry and Karen had a wonderful marriage for the first six years, but when Barry lost his job, everything else went downhill, and Barry’s drinking didn't help either. After Karen found out that Barry was addicted to porn, and after he came close to hitting her for the second time, Karen decided to go home to be with her dying mother. A mother she hadn't seen for several years, due to a situation that Karen still wasn’t sure about. How would Barry take Karen walking out on him? This book will give you the answer, and many more answers as you read Where Hope Starts by Angela D. Meyer.

This is an amazing story about God’s love and forgiveness. I fell in love with the characters in the beginning, and the story was so interesting I couldn’t put it down. I read it in one sitting! I had to find out what happened to this hurting couple. Ms. Meyer clearly weaves the Christian message into the lives of her characters. Characters that are away from God, hurting, lonely and have no hope for their future at all, let alone together. But God had other plans for their life. Plans to give them hope and a future and as the story unfolds, you will experience the love, grace and forgiveness of our Heavenly Father. It wasn’t an easy road for Karen or Barry; there were a lot of rejections, disappointments, hurts, and everything else that goes with a relationship gone bad, but the ending will amaze you. I highly recommend that you grab a copy of Where Hope Starts and read it today. You will receive a wonderful blessing reading this story.
