Saving Hope



When a teenager goes missing from the Beacon of Hope School, Texas Ranger Wyatt Sheridan and school director Kate Winslow are forced into a dangerous struggle against a human trafficking organization. But the battle brings dire consequences as Wyatt's daughter is terrorized and Kate is kidnapped.

Now it's personal, and Wyatt finds both his faith and investigative skills challenged as he fights to discover the mastermind behind the ring before evil destroys everyone he loves.

My Review:

 Compelling and gritty, Daley tackles a sensitive subject with compassion. She doesn't mince words, but she does offer, as the title suggests, hope. I found it hard to read at times because she captured the horror and fear of human trafficking so well. But those scenes are balanced by Kate's determination and drive to make things better for the girls in her care. An artful show of contrast between the harsh reality of the streets and the second chance the girls are getting at Beacon of Hope School really makes an impact.

Add in the suspense that builds to a fever pitch by the end and Saving Hope becomes a real page-turner. As readers, we know some things the characters don't and that really upped the tension. Wyatt and Kate didn't know how close to evil they really were, but I did and it about drove me crazy when they refused to listen to my warnings!

Daley also manages to weave a winning romance into the taut plot. Emotionally charged and tension-riddled, Saving Hope is one romantic suspense you'll want to sink your teeth into.

  2. It is a tough subject, Linda but Margaret Daley does it justice. There's so much depth in the characters -- both good and evil. And the controversy over whether the girls are worthy to be helped. Lot's of food for thought over who Christ came to this earth for and is it really our position to judge anyway?

  3. Margaret appeared on my blog in December and talked about this book. Definitely enter me for the drawing!

  4. Consider yourself entered, Andrea. It's a great book!

  5. Although the topic of this story is more gritty than my usual taste, as Linda said, it's a topic we need to be more aware of...and I'm a Margaret Daley fan from waaaay back, so was tickled to learn that my hubby ordered it for me as a gift last week. Should see it any day. :)

  6. This sounds wonderful. If I don't win, I'll be tracking it down :o)
