In Miracle Road by Emily March we are taken back to small town Eternity Springs. After suffering a loss few can ever imagine, Hope now lives in Eternity Springs. She has pulled her life back together as best as she can and is working as a school teacher, something that brings her happiness. Although she has no family, she has lots of friends in Eternity Springs. It's been a long time since she's had a relationship, and it's the last thing she's looking for.
When Lucas, having suffered his own tragedy, comes to Eternity Springs to be with his family and try to find a way to move on from the path of self destruction he's been on, the last thing he expects to find is peace or Hope in Eternity Springs.
When Hope and Lucas first meet, Hope does not intend to spend time with her neighbour, even if he is so handsome... But slowly, with the stars guiding them, they spend more and more time together. Hope and Lucas gradually build a relationship, but it is one that will need honesty and trust instead of assumptions if it is to go anywhere. Hope and Lucas are both strong people, but they bring a lot of baggage that neither is too keen to talk about. To push forward from the past, they just might be what the other needs - if they can open up to one another and be honest to themselves.
Miracle Road by Emily March is another great installement in the Eternity Springs series. I loved the interactions between all of the characters, and especially loved that Emily keeps bringing back characters from past books in the series...enough that we can catch up with them, but never feeling like we've missed something if you haven't read the other books. The Romano family in particular I love 'watching' them together!
Lucas and Hope are both people who despite the problems they have experienced that few hopefully ever will, are an easy to relate to hero and heroine. Emily gives us people who could be your neighbours or your friend in her books and Miracle Road is no exception. An easy to get into and read book, Miracle Road has emotional highs and lows that will touch you and keep you glued to the pages.
Miracle Road is about healing, moving on, and miracles that I would recommend to any romance reader looking for a story that will make you feel involved. Although part of a series, Miracle Road can be read alone, but I highly recommend all of Emily's books in this series. I can't wait for her next book!
