Cathy Marie Hake, best-selling author of Fancy Pants, delivers a poignant romance set in 1891 Texas. Miss Hope Ladley believes God wants her to cook and clean for grieving widower Jacob Stauffer. But when Jacob hires the cheerful dynamo, he can't imagine the profound effect she'll have on his frightened sister, his motherless daughter, and on his own tender heart - or how much they'll all miss her if she leaves.

Listener Opinions

    " Loved this book. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the funny sayings Hope would come up with. These endeared me to her character. I love her positive attitude and her determination. Read it. "

    " I found this to be a good story diminished by gimmicky writing. Two things bothered me. The story was set in Texas, but the main character seemed modeled after Ruby in Cold Mountain, including the Appalachian dialect. It might have worked if the other characters in the area spoke the same dialect, but no one else did, so to me it stuck out as annoyingly weird. She also kept speaking in muddled cliches that really grated on my nerves, and even if you found them cutesy at first, the gimmick was vastly overdone to the point of being nauseating. It was overall an entertaining story, not without its charms, and a fast read to fill a stormy night, but I would have enjoyed it so much more and given it four stars if the protagonist seemed like an authentic plainswoman instead of Ellie Mae Clampett channeling Archie Bunker--that totally ruined the romance for me. She was a most NOT charming heroine indeed. However, the price (free) was right. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mom | 2/6/2014

    " I liked how she moved around to work with different families, going where the Lord led her and where she was needed. She liked to help families and she was needed here since the Annie needed someone to believe in her and that she could think on her own. What Annie felt mattered. Hope seemed to have a way of knowing what to say to make someone feel better about themselves. Good book. I would like to read another like this. Neighbors helping each other at harvest time. Ladies all coming together to cook meals for them. "

    " This novel has potential. Like the novels of Nicolas Sparks, this would be a better movie than book. My biggest complaint was the author's difficulty in allowing her story to "unfold." Indeed, she was often redundant, almost seeming to want to assure the reader did not miss a single point she intended. Also, her use of dialogue to build her characters detracted rather than added to the story and at times, created inconsistent cartoons, rather than the charming people intended. I liked the positive attempt to create a main character with Learning Disabilities and an Attention Deficit as dimensions of her character, without overcoming disability as the focus of the story. "Forevermore" is as it's title implies, a simple love story. Despite my governs with the author's style, I enjoyed the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ariel | 1/23/2014

    " This book is such a sweet story! From the beginning I was pulled into Hope's crazy antics and sayings and Emmy-Lou's sweet love. The whole family has their unique characteristics that help them band together when trouble hits. This story is a great story and I definitely recommend it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 1/12/2014

    " A free book I picked up, kindle-for-pc. First I think I've read by this author, easy read and probably predictable like a lot of Christian fiction but that's usually ok with me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany Hutchins | 1/12/2014

    " Loved this book, I read it in two days. If you like Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, then this series is one you will like too. The silly and loving ways of Hope will keep you wanting to read more and more. By the end of the book I felt like I new each one of the characters and hoping for the story line to continue. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 1/8/2014

    " I tried. I did finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri *Mistress of Laundry* | 12/17/2013

    " Part of the "only in Gooding" series. I loved the heroine Hope. She's illiterate and doesn't speak well but she's the kind of woman who you instantly take to and wish she was your friend. I loved this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 12/13/2013

    " The character Hope is funny, quirky, and charming, and so makes for a good read. The conflict faced by the family and the resolution of the conflict are annoyingly disappointing and predictable. It almost could ruin the whole thing for a person, but overall the story was a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 12/13/2013

    " I didn't know this was a #2 in a series. You could read it as its own story. I loved the characters, the drama and the comedy all in one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 12/1/2013

    " This was my least favorite in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 11/25/2013

    " This was a simple, pleasant happy book that made me appreciate everything I am on this earth to do! A real feel good bok! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 11/22/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book by Cathy Marie Hake. It is the third book that I've read by this author. It was lively and entertaining with characters that had depth. I look forward to reading another book from her! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claudia | 9/24/2013

    " This was a little on the slow side. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerrica | 6/25/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. I like this author and series overall, but a lot of her books seem to have the same pattern. Oh well, I still enjoyed it and plan on finishing the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anny | 4/28/2013

    " Great easy cheerful read with beautiful lighthearted characters - mostly. :0) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justina | 8/17/2012

    " This was a good book, but very predictable. You knew how things would end up as soon as you read the first page, but still a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tressa (Tressa's Wishful Endings) | 7/29/2012

    " I didn't like this one as much as two of the author's other books, but it was still good. It was a little slow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 6/27/2012

    " It wasn't my favorite Cathy Marie Hake books, but it had a sweet charm to it. I couldn't help but smile through most of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Ross | 5/31/2012

    " This was a fun sweet read. I liked the contrast of the German heritage of the characters to the previous book in this series. I just wish the book had kept going! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Alkire | 1/6/2012

    " Read this book because it was free on my Kindle and enjoyed it. Might not have picked this one otherwise. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 9/3/2011

    " This book was okay. The story was alittle weak but the faith the people in the book shared was inspiring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 6/26/2011

    " A simple but fun read. The main character, Hope, was endearing in a sweet backwoods kind of way and I really admired her spunk & faith. It's not a book that I would read over and over, but it wasn't a waste of time either. It was an enjoyable story all in all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 4/29/2011

    " This was a fun sweet read. I liked the contrast of the German heritage of the characters to the previous book in this series. I just wish the book had kept going! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 2/10/2011

    " Forevermore was cute and witty. Hope just had that personality that draws people into trusting her and Jakob was no exception. Do not let the title fool you this was no simple love story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/15/2011

    " This was a sweet Christian fiction. It had great characters and a good setting. The bad guy was taken care of too easily tho and I just could not get over the main character Hopes accent. Oh well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 1/5/2011
