Hope & Desire
Publisher: Publish America, LLLP
Jennifer Greene, a young impressionable girl, dreams of going to New York to become a fashion designer. Her father dies suddenly, her mother marries his best friend, and Jennifer is forced to put her education aside to care for her younger siblings, juggle a nine-to-three job and is expected to perform household duties. She gets a second job and earns more money in hopes of pursuing her dreams, but her sister, a feisty school dropout, steals the money and runs off to New York. Jennifer gets another chance and goes to New York, only to be lured into becoming a housekeeper for Joe Morgan, a horse rancher, who tricks her into marriage. She finds herself saddled to a stubborn, old man twice her age, who refuses to let her go. She escapes, falls in love, and finds herself a suspect for murder.
Ms. Theresa E. Grant has been a writer for ten years. She has studied her craft with The Long Ridge Writers Group, Universal Class, Writers of Maryland, Writers Digest, and American Writers & Artist Institute. Ms. Grant's major influences have been her teachers, other published writer, and her husband, Dr. Warren H. Grant. She is the author of several books and member of the Black Writers' Guild.
Hope & Desire is an excellent story written, by Ms. Theresa E.Grant, about young woman Jennifer who puts your life on hold for the sake of her family. It is full of everyday episodes that families go through career changes, struggles, sorrow, pain and faith. The title of the book speaks for itself and carried out throughout its entirety. I was particularly drawn to the book because of its title and cover which was designed by Published America.
