Where Hope Begins – Contemporary Fiction with a Little Women Twist
All Maggie Acker ever wanted was to have a family of her own. Now, with her handsome, hardworking husband, Josh, and two adorable twin boys from his previous marriage, she is determined to be the wife and mother Josh’s ex-wife failed to be.
But when one of the twins has a near-fatal health scare and is later diagnosed with diabetes, Maggie blames herself for not seeing the signs sooner. As the rest of the family slowly learns to live with the diagnosis, Maggie fights to gain control of her son’s health. Coupled with a major career change for Josh, their marriage teeters on the brink of destruction.
When Maggie’s family sends the couple away for a much-needed vacation, a life-rocking argument is followed by terrifying news regarding their son. Will Maggie’s childhood dreams of love and family disappear before she realizes the treasure she’d had right in front of her?

Readers will fall in love with the Martin family—Maggie, Josie, Lizzie, Bronson, Amie, and their mother Hannah—each trying to find their own way in the world and each discovering that love, home, and hope are closer than they appear.
