She's out of options. He doesn't want to get involved.
Skye Hewitt thought coming to Jesus would fix all her problems. Boy was she wrong. But He has given her the strength to make some big decisions. Like the choice to leave the East Coast where she was comfortable, and head to the Southwest and the grandparents she’s never met. Maybe the change of scene will provide the solution she desperately needs.
Morgan Young came to Hope Ranch to work with horses and put his years as a police officer behind him. The influx of Hewitt grandchildren isn’t even a blip on his radar. At least until Skye shows up. Now he’s torn between seeking out and steering clear of the woman who stirs more than his curiosity.
The longer she stays, the more they’re thrown together, and both of them will have to decide if falling in love is something they’re willing to risk.

Hope for Tomorrow, as with all the stories I’ve ever read by Elizabeth Maddrey, packs a wallop.
As Skye struggles with an unknown disease and the loss of her job because of her poor health, she seeks the grandparents she had never known. She is an interesting combination of strong and unsure of herself. The anxiety she experiences causes her difficulty in making decisions. And she feared to reveal her newly-found faith in Jesus to her father.
Several hard subjects are addressed in this story. Chronic, undiagnosed illness. Estranged Family. Trust. Each is handled with tact and the answers point to faith in the Lord.
In addition to Morgan and Skye’s issues, her parents are a bit…hippyish. Naming all their children after shades of blue is only the tip of the iceberg!
Not everything is resolved in the story, by design. The books in the Hope Ranch series build on each other and yet close with satisfying conclusions so they could be read alone though they are best read as a series.
