The Best Is Yet to Come
The Best is Yet to Come is another wonderful, feel-good book by Debbie Macomber. I love Macomber’s books because they are so easy to follow, and the storylines are all well-constructed. Her characters are realistic as is the dialogue throughout the book.
Hope has moved to Oceanside, a town in Washington State. Moving from California was a big step for her and after her twin brother’s death, while serving his country, Hope feels that she needs a change of venue. Hope finds a job as a history teacher and counselor at the local high school. Her landlord also convinces her to volunteer at the animal shelter he runs. Hope falls in love with the dog that everyone is scared of, Shadow. In fact, Hope is the only person Shadow seems to trust and be gentle with. Hope also meets Cade, a troubled yet good-souled Veteran who is doing community service at the shelter.
This story combines Hope’s personal life with her experiences as a school counselor. The kids she helps seem to have issues that parallel her own past, and she becomes very involved in helping them. Throughout the book, there are themes of faith, courage, love, tenderness, and of course, hope. Excellent from cover to cover.
