In this tender holiday story, Kerry McCormack, a thirtysomething wife and mother, dreams of trading her office job for a simpler life. After years of a passionate marriage, she’s grown apart from her husband Stephen, who hides his longing for a close family. Unresolved grief is only creating more distance between them…just as a dilemma from Kerry’s past suddenly comes to light.
Kerry accepts an unexpected invitation from an old friend of Stephen’s—a friend she once fancied—to leave Dublin for an American Thanksgiving weekend in the little village of Ballydara. She's anticipating an idyllic country holiday with free-spirited Will and his family. Yet the grief shadowing her makes her a little too susceptible to Will’s charm. He’s the catalyst that exposes long-buried secrets between Kerry and Stephen, and the regrets that haunt them both.
As the holidays draw near and Kerry’s hopes for love and her family’s future seem out of reach, will she and Stephen find their way back to each other in time for Christmas?
"The Hopeful Romantic was a pleasure to read for its engaging characters, its authenticity, and its unforgettable moments...a poignant and, sometimes humorous, old-fashioned romantic story." -Chanticleer Reviews
