“Beautifully written…a story you won’t forget. --Kristan Higgins, New York Times bestselling author

When tragedy destroys everything you've built, how do you find the strength to go on? In Jamie Pope’s powerful novel, one woman must come to terms with grief—and a passionate but uncertain chance at remaking her future.

In one shattering instant, schoolteacher Cassandra Miller lost everything that mattered to her. Stricken with guilt and sorrow, she has no reason to care about tomorrow. The last person she wants help from is the man she wants to forget. In childhood, Wylie Everett was her cherished best friend. In adulthood, he was the secret lover who left her without explanation. Now he’s the person who won’t let her go down without a fight. And as he renews her joy in small things, and challenges her to take a fresh perspective, the desire they once shared burns more fiercely than ever—and proves anything but safe.

An ex-Marine, Wylie has always loved Cass, though their backgrounds were as different as could be. Years ago, he walked away believing he could never be good enough for her. But he’s never stopped regretting his decision. Now, helping her heal is the only way he can make amends, and hopefully make up for lost time. But their rekindled passion will be tested by pain he's never resolved—and mistakes for which forgiveness may not be enough. Can he and Cass find one last way to move forward, and risk rebuilding their lives…together?

Hope Blooms weaves a story of devastating loss, first love and the meaning of home….Deeply emotional, uplifting and ultimately joyful. --Kristan Higgins, New York Times bestselling author

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 20, 2017 – In the wake of tragedy, first loves are reunited and given a second chance at the life they lost in Pope s remarkable, perfectly paced interracial romance set in Aquinnah, a town on Martha s Vineyard, Mass. Cass and Terrance, both black, were best friends growing up. Wylie, who s white, moved in with Terrance after being orphaned; he and Cass fell in love, but they kept it a secret from Terrance, who d always had unrequited romantic feelings for Cass. When Terrance learned of the romance, he guilted Wylie into leaving, and months later a heartbroken Cass (unaware that they d been found out) agreed to marry Terrance. Fast forward to the present day, when Cass and Terrance are both injured in a school shooting. Cass survives, but Terrance and their unborn child die. Cass confines herself to her bed for weeks, overcome with grief. Her mother calls Wylie, recently returned from a stint in the Marines, to intervene. When Wylie moves Cass in with him, their lives intertwine seamlessly. Long-dormant feelings spring to life and their passion is reignited. Their loyalty and unconditional love for one another will tug at heartstrings as they grapple with complicated feelings about race and the past. Readers will root for and demand more of this enchanting couple.
