Book Review A House Full Of Hope by Missy Tippens

Book Description:
A House Full of Hope


Before becoming a Christian, Mark Ryker ran with a bad crowd and broke hearts. Including his father’s. Now a successful businessman, Mark has come home to Corinthia, Georgia, to make amends. But no one will forgive him. So when the widowed mother of four renting his dad’s run-down house needs help fixing up the place, Mark gets to work. Pretty Hannah Hughes and her sweet kids have him longing to be part of the clan, but Hannah isn’t ready to let go of the past. Still, they are working together on a house full of hope—and that’s all Mark needs.

Book Review:
Thanks Missy for my copy of this book, I won it at Seekerville. 

I enjoyed this book. We see Mark Ryker coming back to his home town after being a troubled teen. He has left behind some issues that many in the town won't let him forget. Hannah is now the mother of 4 children and trying to make a safe home for her children in Mark's fathers house. Mark is back and wants his father back in his house and thinks coming back should sort everything out. What he doesn't count on is that its isn't that simple. Hannah distrusts Mark because of his past and how he affected her family before he went away. The book deals alot with healing, forgiveness and understanding. It also shows that our perception of an issue is not the only one. Sometimes we have to look at an issue as an outsider to truly understand the full story. I love the children also in this story, they tend to steal scenes.
This is a lovely story. Well worth the read.

This sounds like a good book. I'll need to keep it in mind for future reading. I like stories that deal with forgiveness and healing.
