Tracy Campbell and Michael Hunter have more in common than they realize- both are still grieving the loss of their respective spouse's, feel guilt at their self-perceived responsibility for their deaths, and are trying to find a way to put the past behind them and move on. Their chance meeting when Michael almost runs over Tracy riding on her bicycle when he arrives in Hope Harbor begins a tentative friendship. Their friendship expands to Michael helping Tracy not only on her family's cranberry farm but also to him using his business acumen as a non-profit business executive to help a local charity that Tracy is deeply involved with thrive. In time, a romance develops and both have hopes for the future if they can just get beyond their pasts.
Hope Harbor is a heartwarming tale showcasing the power of possibilities. The cast of characters in this small town draw the reader into the story making her feel a part of this dear community! Hannon delivers healthy doses of forgiveness, introspection, humor, and romance making this an enjoyable read!
