Enthralling from Beginning to End!  


Hope’s New Season is the sequel to Blessed Transgressions and I would advise reading both novels in order. You can read my spoiler-free review of the first book here.

Following on directly from book one, we once again follow the life of Victoria Unruh. This time, Victoria is finishing high school and preparing for college life. She still has to deal with all that life has thrown at her, but she has no way of knowing the trials and tribulations waiting for her over the next few years.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading both these novels. The author weaves a beautiful tale of a young woman making her way into the world and, although it doesn’t dominate the story, I have loved learning more about the Mennonite faith and how different people practise in different ways. This is an enthralling read, and one which has kept my attention from beginning to end. Highly recommended to all lovers of good fiction – and please don’t forget to read all about the author; her personal story is very inspiring!

My thanks to Lois Jean Thomas for my copy of her novel which I chose to read of my own free will. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
