After tragedy upends her world, Jeannette Mason retreats to the tiny Oregon seaside town of Hope Harbor to create a new life. Vowing to avoid emotional attachments, she focuses on running her lavender farm and tea-room--until a new neighbor with a destructive dog and a forlorn little girl invades her turf. But she needn't worry. Dr. Logan West is too busy coping with an unexpected family, a radical lifestyle change, and an unruly pup to have any interest in his aloof and disagreeable neighbor.
Yet when both Jeanette and Logan find themselves pulled into the life of a tattered Christian family fleeing persecution in war-torn Syria, might they discover that love sometimes comes calling when it's least expected?
Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites readers back to the charming seaside town of Hope Harbor, where they are sure to find peace, healing, and a second chance at happiness.
"Driftwood Bay" is the fifth book in the Hope Harbor series. I enjoyed being able to return to Hope Harbor and see some of the people I've met there in previous books. I especially liked seeing Charlie, Gladys, and Floyd again. The characters from the other books do make appearances in this book, but it isn't absolutely necessary to read them first. (Although I always recommend reading series of books in order). I found the book to be well written with a nice pace. The book had a nice spiritual thread that was woven throughout the story. The book followed both of the main characters, as well as three other "side" characters. It was actually two stories that intertwined and contained similar issues they were dealing with. I look forward to reading more books by Irene Hannon.
