Book Spotlight: Where Hope Starts by Angela D. Meyer
In a city full of dreams… Karen Marino’s life is a nightmare. The New York City restaurant manager is a professional success, but her marriage is in shambles. When her husband, Barry shows up drunk at her restaurant, she loses both. She flees The Big Apple and returns to her Midwestern home to sort through her options. But instead of answers, she finds an old boyfriend ready to rekindle romance, a family full of secrets and an angry brother bent on revenge.
Still in New York, Barry fights his own demons. He knows he messed up, but is powerless to stop his rage and addictions. A fistfight on the streets of the city lands him in jail and forces him to face the possibility of a future behind bars.
Karen knows holding onto her bitterness won’t repair her marriage. But how do you forgive someone when you don’t feel like it? As she searches for the answer, she uncovers the family secret that threatens to tear them all apart. Can she find her way back to the place Where Hope Starts?
Praise for Where Hope Starts
Angela Meyer is an author to keep an eye on. Her debut novel, Where Hope Starts, is a powerful story about the brokenness in each of us and God's faithfulness. Meyer's characters are deep and rich and I was hooked on the story within just a few pages. She expertly weaves the theme of redemption through the story and keeps the reader on their toes with an element of mystery and a bit of romance. ~Jill Hart at Radiant Lit ~
"Real, raw, and full of redemption! Myer tackles the tough subjects of spousal abuse and pornography. For anyone dealing with either of these this book is a tough read, but a must read. Myer shows how to find hope and healing in the midst of deep trial and pain." ~Tara Rye~Dean of Women at Grace University~
