Angela Meyer Review

Where Hope Starts

Karen Marino has a dream job in the Big Apple and a husband, but in one fell swoop she loses her job and her marriage crumbles. Disappointed, and in a need to get away, she returns to her hometown where she finds more questions and problems then answers and solutions. Barry, her husband left behind in New York, is devastated to lose Karen, but has no clue what to do to resolve the issues they face.

With heartfelt emotion, Angela Meyer gives us a couple desperately seeking answers but finding more questions and doubts until a friend and a brother show them the way home. That journey is one of learning to forgive and admitting ones faults. The story will tug at your heart and keep you turning the pages to journey with Karen and Barry to renewed love.

Back Cover Blurb
Karen Marino's life is a nightmare. The New York City restaurant manager is a professional success, but her marriage is in shambles. When her husband, Barry shows up drunk at her restaurant, she loses both. She flees The Big Apple and returns to her Midwestern home to sort through her options. But instead of answers, she finds an old boyfriend ready to rekindle romance, a family full of secrets and an angry brother bent on revenge. Still in New York, Barry fights his own demons. He knows he has made a mess of his life, but is powerless to stop his rage and addictions. A fist-fight lands him in jail and forces him to face the possibility of a future behind bars. Karen knows holding onto her bitterness won't repair her marriage. But how do you forgive someone when you don't feel like it? As she searches for the answer, she uncovers the family secret that threatens to tear them all apart. Can she find her way back to the place Where Hope Starts?

Angela D. Meyer lives in Omaha, NE with her husband of more than 22 years. She homeschools their daughter and recently graduated their son who is now a Marine. She taught Bible class for over 35 years and served for almost three years on the leadership team of her local Christian writers group. Her debut novel, Where Hope Starts, is a finalist in the Grace Awards. She loves God, her family, the ocean, good stories, connecting with friends, taking pictures, quiet evenings and a good laugh. Someday she wants to ride in a hot air balloon and vacation by the sea.
