In a time of crisis, two women come together... And set off down a road of hope...

Good Hope Road is the long-awaited follow up to Lisa Wingate's national bestselling first novel, Tending Roses. If you've ever been inspired by the ability of ordinary people to rise above extraordinary tragedy, let the residents of Poetry, Missouri lift your heart as they rise from the ashes of a deadly tornado.

Eudora Gibson - Trapped underground by the tornado and trapped in the bitterness of the past, unwilling to be rescued by young Jenilee Lane, the neighbor to whom she has always turned a cold shoulder, she must face the secrets of the past to find a new path to the future.

Jenilee Lane - Imprisoned in the world of her struggling family and her alcoholic father, desperate to break free and find herself, she must discover an inner strength she never knew she possessed.

Dr. Michael Albright - Forced off the road by the tornado, a stranger on the verge of physical and emotional collapse, he must open himself to the caring of others to rebuild his shattered life and rediscover the man he once was.

Brought close by tragedy, those whose paths merge on Good Hope Road will learn lessons about the resilience of the human spirit and the ties that make a community strong.
