Burke Jones began his life as a nameless orphan, dreaming of one day being a renowned doctor with a home and family to call his own. Sophie Kingston, daughter of an influential East Coast family, was destined to be an important and beloved part of Baltimore Society.
Life has not gone quite as either planned.
Now living in the home of a family friend, Sophie joins the lady on a journey to the tiny town of Hope Springs in Wyoming Territory. It is unlike any place she’s ever known. And the resident doctor is a mystery as well. Burke knows he isn’t the success he’d always imagined he would be, and seeing it through the eyes of this newly arrived Society lady only drives that home.
As Hope Springs begins to weave its magic, Sophie discovers more than she’d ever imagined, in both the town and its doctor. And Burke, who has always guarded his heart, begins to wonder if there might be more to life than he has previously imagined.
Their futures, however, do not lie along the same path or in the same destinations. Fate has once again proven unkind.
Can Hope Springs work yet another miracle?
It's always a beautiful thing to travel back to Hope Springs, Wyoming. This series has the most wonderful, humble, brave, and lively people in its books. I have truly loved every Hope Springs book I've read.
First readers meet the quiet, refined, and sad Sophie who travels to Hope Springs with her older friend, Mrs. Archer who is visiting her family. Soon Sophie meets the reserved local doctor, Burke who hasn't allowed himself to really love anyone because of his tragic past. This sweet romance builds in a great way that any reader will just love. With the help of the friendly people of Hope Springs, Sophie and Burke find a way to meet in the middle and open their hearts.
Honestly, this novella did not feel like a shorter book. It felt so rich and full like a complete novel. This is a particular talent of this author and she does it often and very well.
I loved this book and hope there are many more books to add to this series. Sarah Eden has once again woven her magic and has created a story full of love, awakenings, and romance.
