Book Description

December 1990
No one in the small lumber town of Calder Springs, tucked away in the remote setting of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, was prepared for the news. When the men of the village left for another day of work at the lumber mill, they did not know their lives would be dramatically changed.

But without warning the mill closing was announced. The local timber supply was gone, and the harsh reality was that no mill would open to replace what was lost. Without the lumber industry, the town would die they had seen it happen before-. No jobs, no future, and worthless homes on their hands. The best anyone can hope for is to relocate and start over.

John and Julia Harrigan had lived a tranquil, prosperous life in Calder Springs. The death of the town involves John's work, their lovely home and a bright future for their daughters. Raised in the East and educated in a fine school, Julia Harrigan seemed an unlikely candidate to change the grim reality. But by the grace of God and for the sake of John and her children, Julia decides they must find a way to save the town and home they love.

Join Julia in discovering new depths of faith and hope in God.

From what i remember it was detailed which gave me the feeling to feel sympathy for those in the book. I have read other books written by Janette Oke and have enjoyed everyone just as much as this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book with winsome characters Dec 16 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful book that I couldn't put down! Janette Oke is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. The many different character's she brings to life are each memorable and touching as they go in and out of the boarding house. Each ones visit is like a story within a story. This book is very engaging as we fall in love with John, Julia and their twin daughters and hope that they can save their town! I would highly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish it March 29 2001
Format:Paperback
This book is not the quality of work that I've come to expect from Janette Oke. I was very disappointed in it, and quit reading it about half way through. The characters were lovable and interesting, but I thought the plot dragged just a bit too much for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Julia's Hope Nov. 29 2000
By Jessie
Format:Paperback
Yet another good Janette Oke book! This one tells the story of Julia and her husband, along with their twin daughters. The mill in their small town is closing, and John (Julia's husband) works at the mill, along with basically all the men in the town. They have to decide what to do. Should they move? or fight to keep the town alive?
I enjoyed this book, but felt that it was a little bit boring in some aspects (hence the 4 stars). In the end, John and Julia come to a decision and discover how important it is to keep the family together.
