Synopsis:


27-year-old Ashley Harper has it all – a secure job in the city, a cozy apartment in a great neighborhood, and a high-profile boyfriend who is on his way to becoming one of New York’s top business attorneys. She is successful and has it all . . .or so she thought. After fleeing from Sweet Home eight-years ago following the devastating death of her father, Ashley vowed she would never return. But when her mother decides to get married there, Ashley is forced to return to the sleepy, little town she once called home in Oregon. Having to spend an entire week in the very place she fought so hard to escape she expects to find nothing but anger, resentment, and hostility but instead finds forgiveness, love – and her ex-boyfriend, Jay. Things are not what she expected in Sweet Home. Once again, Ashley finds herself at a crossroads. Faced with an impossible decision—will she trust her head and return to her life in the city and live the life of luxury she has worked so hard to achieve, or will she trust Gods’ gentle guiding and follow her heart back home.

Review:

Anchor of Hope is a sweet, inspirational romance novel that is perfect for those looking for a romance novel that isn’t too erotic.  The story focuses more on drama and tragedy than sexual matters, and that is always something that I enjoy in a good romance novel.  Ashley Harper, the main character in Anchor of Hope is highly relatable and Kiah Stephens’ novel is a perfect novel for women who are at a crossroads in their life.  It is those crossroads that define who we are, and this novel reads like a good Nicholas Sparks novel – moving and heartwarming all at once.

Stephens is an author who understands human emotions and relationships, and she reflected this understanding through every single one of her characters.  I felt myself falling in love with all of them, and I enjoyed Stephens’ perception of “home” and how “home” changes over time for each one of us.  Anchor of Hope is so much more than a romance novel.  It is a realistic look at the human experience, and how even the smallest of events can change who we are.  If you are looking for a new author that will present you with relatable characters and an addictive romantic story, then please look no further than Kiah Stephens.
