Decide to Hope book cover

Decide To Hope (The Hope Trilogy Book 1)

An unimaginable trauma. A future that seems impossible. When your world shatters, how do you put it back together?

For 950 days, Kathleen Conners has struggled with that choice. Behind a scarf and sunglasses, she hides from the world, from herself, from The Event, from any future with anyone.

After receiving a box of letters from his deceased mother, Matt Nelson is shoved from his predictable, controlled life to a secluded beach in North Carolina. While trying to understand his mother’s intent, he discovers Kathleen. Matt must choose whether to follow the path his mother orchestrated or rescue the woman who has captured his heart.

When the only person Kathleen blames more than herself reappears, can Matt be the strength Kathleen needs to create a new life, or will he be forced to walk away if she decides the climb is too great?

A Powerfully Emotional Read!

Decide to Hope is a powerful read about love, hope, survival, new beginnings and moving on, with a dash of mystery. It was a beautiful yet poignant read that touched my heart. Decide to Hope is a very emotional and powerful read. A Touching Novel that triggered so many emotions. It is a totally absorbing read, that's beautifully written, it was fluid and captivating, with a fantastic cast of multi-layered, challenging characters that I grew to love as the story develops. I highly recommend this Poignant read. I am really looking forward to reading more from June A. Converse.

Powerful, original, and satisfying

I don't normally read a lot of romance, but from the first paragraph to the last, I was hooked and didn't want to put the book down. The characters are real and likable, and their struggles are relevant and engaging. This book talks about important themes not often dealt with directly, and it does so with great sensitivity and skill. I didn't want this book to end.

Great book about PTSD

First book I have read about PTSD. I googled the author and she has a blog about mental illness as well. The author has a deep insight into PTSD, as if evident by the writing. This is the author’s first novel and I am sure the next two in the series will be even better.

I Usually Know What is Going to Happen...

I can really appreciate a storyline in which I am unable, as a reader, to predict exactly what is going to happen next. This is far from a typical romance novel, with twists and turns that will have your jaw-dropping and your empathy muscles working as you connect with the characters and want to see them succeed. Can't wait for the next book, this one left me decidedly hoping (pun intended) for more!

Engaging & Heartwarming- Highly Recommend

A heartwarming story about love, loss, and resilience. I enjoyed the connection between Matt and Kathleen and seeing how they evolved during their time together. I’m looking forward to reading other books in this series!
