The Miracle of Hope by Ruth Reid

The Miracle of Hope

by Ruth Reid


Book Description

How far can God’s mercy reach?

Lindie Wyse is pregnant out of wedlock and thinks an arranged marriage is the only way to preserve her future. Josiah Plank is certain he’ll never love again, but he needs someone to care for his eight-year-old daughter, Hannah. The two take on their arrangement tentatively at first but soon realize they are each in for more than they imagined.

Lindie experiences a breakthrough with Hannah when she recognizes Hannah’s special gifts, but a risky pregnancy and serious health issues threaten to demolish the foundation Josiah and Lindie are building. Will their growing love survive despite their struggles, or will their hearts become as cold as the northern winter?


A Miracle of Hope is a really wonderful read, and by far my favorite from author Ruth Reid. I hope we hear more from the Plank family in the future. Lindie and Josiah were both hurting from different things that has happened in their past. And both were happy with their marriage of convenience arrangement. But as difficult situations started showing up, this young couple slowly started caring for one another. But they had an agreement. Would that agreement stand?

I immediately fell in love with Josiah, Lindie and Hannah. Josiah was such a sweetheart, and he struggled daily with his feelings for his deceased wife, his daughter, Hannah being death, and his feelings for his new wife Lindie. This is one of those books where really feel the emotions of the characters, and when you finish the book, they leave a warm feeling in your heart. This is a special family that will show you how hurts and frustrations, sickness and pain, can lead to love and forgiveness and commitment. And I love the way Ms. Reid weaves the promises of the Scriptures into the lives of these characters. A Miracle of Hope will stay with you long after you finish reading this book.
