A Mt. Moriah Novel


A life-changing illness…a chance meeting…a diary from her mother’s past.

Hope thought visiting her aunt’s house in a hilly area of Mt. Moriah where she’d spent her childhood summers would be easy – drop in, hang out, go home. Discovering that her aunt wants her to take over an aging business and stay in the small town, upsets her carefully planned future.

A chance encounter in town with Joe Collins, a former love who is living with his family after a terrible tragedy, proves to her that staying in Mt. Moriah will be difficult if not impossible.

However, the area where her aunt lives, known as The Holler, grows on her. The beautiful countryside and solitude give comfort to her while she copes with her aunt’s life decisions, her latest romantic failure, and a writing career that hangs in the balance.

When her aunt gives her a diary that once belonged to her mother, Hope envelopes herself with the memories of her mother’s life when she once lived in Mt. Moriah.

 Understanding her mother’s youth, helps Hope to find the answers to so many things, including what happened between her and Joe when they were teens.

Begin your spring break in the enchanting hill town of Mt. Moriah!
