Love And Community
Christmas At Hope Hall by Pam Rhodes is a heart warming contemporary Christian novel that is absolutely delightful. It is the final book in the Hope Hall trilogy. I recommend reading the previous books first but it can be read as a stand-alone.
Hope Hall has a wonderful community feel. It is a place where love and life go hand in hand. Many different groups use the hall under the care of manager Kath and caretaker Ray.
The reader is delighted to drop in on the groups – such as first aid training, mums and toddlers, drama club, dog (and owner) training and much more. We witness the interactions between the characters. There is much amusing banter, love and care as the characters bring out the best in each other.
I particularly loved the interactions between Ray and a stray dog – it seems that even, or especially, animals know when love and care is needed.
I enjoyed meeting up with familiar faces and spending time dropping in on their lives as autumn made its way towards Christmas.
The Hope Hall trilogy has been positively charming. It has been a pleasure getting to know characters and witnessing their growth and progress. I am sad to leave them all behind now that the books are ended.
Give yourself a treat and pop on down to Hope Hall today.
