Love Remains (Hope Springs Book 3) by Sarah M. Eden {Blog Tour Review + Giveaway}


Love Remains (A Hope Springs Novel) by Sarah M. Eden
Paperback, 350 pages

Book description:

From Sarah M. Eden, the USA Today Bestselling author of the Longing for Home series, LOVE REMAINS is a new romance novel set in the beloved world of Hope Springs.

For nearly a year, Tavish O’Connor has carried the crushing weight of his family’s future on his shoulders. He has taken on the care of his youngest brother, Finbarr, who lost his eyesight in a terrible accident. But the lad needs more than Tavish can provide. Finbarr needs hope.

Cecily Attwater specializes in hope. As a tutor to the newly blind, she has dedicated her life to helping others overcome the obstacles she herself has conquered. Her new assignment in a remote corner of Wyoming proves trickier than usual: Finbarr refuses to learn. To make matters worse, his family—and the other Irish townspeople—are less than thrilled to discover an Englishwoman in their haven.

Cecily’s only hope lies in securing the cooperation of her pupil’s brother Tavish, who happens to be her harshest critic and quite possibly the most frustrating man she’s ever known.

For Finbarr’s sake, Tavish and Cecily forge an uneasy alliance that, as the weeks pass, tiptoes toward something deeper than either dares admit or face, and toward a future they know to be impossible. There can be no hope of a happy outcome for an Irishman and an English woman amongst a people reeling from violence and centuries of hatred between their two homelands.


My Review: 5 Stars

I have really come to love the people (most of them) who live in Hope Springs, WY and after a heart wrenching love triangle, I was delighted to read about the one who still needed to find love. These books really do need to be read in order to fully appreciate the characters and storyline.
After just reading Book 2 in the series, I was somewhat stunned by the way the Irish citizens of Hope Springs treated Cecily, an Englishwoman. Can I just say, what's up with the prejudice?! They were treated very poorly and unfairly, yet seem to have no problem turning around and dishing it right back to someone who definitely doesn't deserve it. You'd think they'd learn to be empathetic by their experiences, especially when all Cecily is there to do is to help one of their own.

I love characters with a little spitfire and the lively banter between Cecily and Tavish was extremely fun, humorous, sweet, and perfect. They have such quick wit and great personalities and I adored them both. I also love Granny so much--she is a joy and really makes me miss my own grandma.

Sometimes I wondered just how much is expected for these people to endure, but there are tender moments that shine through the difficult times and although this book is tough to read here and there, it's definitely worth it, for it is well-written and full of heart.

Content: mild romance; some mildly difficult experiences to endure; some prejudice.
