Good Hope Road by Lisa Wingate.  350 pages

Book Jacket Information:


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

Twenty-one-year-old Jenilee Lane, whose dreams are as narrow as the sky is wide, is the last person to expect anything good to come out of the tornado that rips across the Missouri farmland surrounding her home. But some inner spark compels her to take action-to rescue her elderly neighbor, Eudora Gibson, from the cellar in which she's been trapped. To make her way to the nearby town of Poetry, where the townspeople have begun to gather in the only building left standing. To collect from the landscape fragments of life that lie strewn about in the tornado's wake: letters, photographs-mementos that might mean something to people who have lost everything....

Eudora Gibson is the last person to expect courageous acts from Jenilee Lane. But the girl she's hardly noticed for years is now surprising her-stepping forward with a bravery that inspires Eudora to face her own bitterness over the past. Brought close by tragedy, Jenilee and Eudora will learn lessons about the resilience of the human spirit and the ties that make a community strong. They will travel to a place they once never would have imagined.
