Item Description...
Losing his job and his family's home at the beginning of the Great Depression, Samuel, accompanied by his wife and two young children, hitchhikes to Illinois in search of work and finds himself at a farm working for an elderly woman. Original.

Publishers Description
Like countless others in 1931, Samuel Wortham lost his job. And he lost his wife's inheritance, their home, and much of his self-respect. Samuel, his wife, Julia, and their two young children hitchhike from Pennsylvania to Illinois in hope of work. Caught on the road by a sudden storm, the Worthams take shelter in an abandoned farmhouse out of desperation.Feeling oddly at home, Julia insists on finding the owner of the property, despite Samuel's objections, and asks for permission to stay. The owner is Emma Graham, a woman in her eighties who longs for home but can no longer live by herself. Emma and the Worthams work out a plan to live there together and restore the farm. Samuel struggles with not being able to provide for his family, and Julia and the kids confront unpleasant surprises when a busybody neighbor turns against them. Julia's Hope is an endearing story of faith and faithfulness as Emma teaches the Worthams to live fully, give generously, and love unconditionally. She insists that the family grow where they are planted, like the garden they tend, and each member of the family is forever changed by her wisdom.

Fantastic   Jan 6, 2012
This book grabbed my interest immediately! Loved it! Kelly is a fantastic writer. In four days I read Julia's Hope, and Emma's Gift. I could not put these books down. Today I start #3 Katies Dream, from The Wortham Family Series. Can't wait to get to the Country Road Chronicles 1-4... This series of books reflects on the life struggles that all of us can relate to in one way or the other, even if we didn't grow up during the depression, and the faith that gives us strength and carries us through. A MUST READ SERIES!!
Inspired me to begin a new hobby - reading!  Jun 12, 2006
I've never been an avid reader, but I decided to give it a try on this series from Leisha Kelly. Wow! These books are great and so hard to put down. Since I've completed all the books in this series (Julia's Hope, Emma's Gift, Katie's Dream and Rorey's Secret), I've been inspired to read many others. I'm also looking forward to reading the new book, Rachel's Prayer, coming out in July, 2006. I feel I've found a new hobby, a place to get away from everyday stresses.
Julia's Hope by Leisha Kelly  Sep 6, 2005
This series is so good. Each book is excellent.
A lot of great messages and things to think about.
Julia's Hope is a smooth surprise in inspirational reading!  Nov 13, 2004
I was attracted to read Julia's Hope by the mention of the abandoned house they took up residence in. It was a pleasant surprise and a relaxing, enjoyable read. Kelly's smooth, soothing writing style left me wanting to read more about the depression and the Wortham Family. I was in luck to see there was already a sequel out called Emma's Gift.
A wonderful book!!!!!!!!  Jul 23, 2003
I read this book in two days(and that's with having to care for a baby too.)I'm sure if I'd been alone I could have finished this book within a few hours.But you all know how it is with a baby;barely get anytime for yourself.Anyway,"Julia's Hope" is the perfect book for those of us who are tired of reading books that have just sex,foul language,and more immoral acts.This was a book set during the depression when life was hard on everyone,but it was more of a simpler time than in today's world.This book had such an impact on remember the blessings that we do have and to turn the other cheek when someone does us wrong.This book also strengthened my faith that God will provide for our needs.I can not stress it enough that everyone should give this book a try.Most people, I think, will love it!
Julia's Hope  Mar 22, 2003
What a wonderful book by a new author. I picked this book up at the library on a whim and loved it. The book tells the story of a woman who despite everything that happens to her and her family continues to have faith and hope that all will work out for the best. This is a subtly Christian novel. The author does not talk about religion directly and yet it is definetly a story of a Christian woman. We all can use this reminder of what faith, hope, and grace are all about. I recommend this book highly and look forward to Leisha's next book.
