Jessie's Hope

By Jennifer Hallmark


Can a sliver of hope lead to everlasting love?

Years ago, an accident robbed Jessie Smith’s mobility. It also stole her mother and alienated her from her father. When Jessie’s high school sweetheart Matt Jansen proposes, her parents’ absence intensifies her worry that she cannot hold on to those she loves.

With a wedding fast approaching, Jessie’s grandfather Homer has a goal to find the perfect dress for “his Jessie,” one that would allow her to forget, even if for a moment, the boundaries of her wheelchair. But financial setbacks and unexpected sabotage hinder his plans.

Determined to heal from her past, Jessie initiates a search for her father. Can a sliver of hope lead to everlasting love when additional obstacles—including a spurned woman and unpredictable weather—highjack Jessie’s dream wedding?

Book Takeaway:

All my books and many short stories I’ve written have the same theme: Hope, overcoming obstacles, especially physical ones, forgiveness, and redemption.

Why the author wrote this book:

I took three writing prompts given to me by our local writing group: a wedding dress designer, faded coveralls, and a dusty baseball cap. I began to write and this story took a life of its own as it grew from short story to novella to novel. In many ways, it's who I am and what I believe all wrapped up in a story.
