Books for the Road -- Joshua's Hope

Joshua's Hope by Carol Ann Erhardt is a great book to take along for a day at the beach or a long airplane ride. It's an engaging page-turner about a woman, Hope Courtland, who struggles to rescue her stepson, four-year-old Joshua, from his father who she divorced. Erhardt takes you to edge-of-your-seat suspense when Hope becomes a suspect in the murder of her ex-husband. Zack Stone, sheriff of Pine Cove where Hope lives, is instrumental in helping her restore her faith in God and trust Him with Joshua's future and her own as he becomes an important part of her life.

Tissue alert: there are some spots where a tissue may need to be handy. This is a very touching story, written to draw you into its characters and their struggles. Erhardt does an excellent job of storytelling. It is no wonder that the ebook version of Joshua's Hope was a nominee for the 2008 Eppie Awards
