This is part of a trilogy. I had read the first book some years ago and enjoyed it as best as i could remember. So I was glad to find the other books. Hope springs is second of the trilogy. I was quite disappointed and found it to be very depressing. Have not read the third book yet.
The Wedding Cake which I read later was much better.
Jessie, Margaret, Louise, Beatrice, Charlotte. These women all share their hearts with one another. You can "feel" their friendship. How they react when one of them tells of her plans to move and another is facing a huge obstacle in her life. Still another is having trouble with faith. A friend of theirs is struggling with the loss of a young loved one. They share the pain and rejoice with one another when rejoicing is called for.

Learning to let go and live is the theme in this second installmen
In Friendship Cake, we were introduced to five women of different ages and races, who were put together to create a cookbook which could be used for fundraising purposes at the church. The ladies develop close friendships and decide to keep meeting. When one of the ladies is diagnosed with breast cancer, the others rally around her to offer support. Will this experience hurt the group or make them stronger?
I read this because I am OCD when it comes to books and this is the second in a series. I did not love the first one and did not love this one so I am not going to keep reading, but I can see the charm. I was just not able to fall in love with the characters.
This book not only made me laugh out loud but it also made me cry. This book is a very touching story of just how true friendships can endure life's struggles and disappointments. I would recommend this book as a gift to your best friend.

second in the series from friendship cake. nice continuation of the story of friends going through life and all it throws at you. i found this one to be a little trite, not as meaty as the first, but still good.
This book deals with some heavy issues: depression and suicide, breast cancer, loss of faith. For all of the heaviness, it still is uplifting as the friends deal with each other.
This book is a good testament to the value of friendship. It further develops the characters that are introduced in Friendship Cake, the first book in the Hope Springs series.

Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoys books on women friendships.
Recommended to Dawn by: I enjoyed the first book in the series.
This was a good continuation to the first book, but I thought Friendship Cake was much better.
Great book about friendship.

I loved the entire series and will definitely read them again.
I might have liked these better if I'd read the first book of the trilogy - woops!
Great story of the bond of friendship these ladies in Hope Springs.
Not great, not bad. Somewhat repetitive in its themes.
Lynne under the name of Jackie Lynn, that mysterious woman!
