Then Comes Hope Series

Edgy, bold fiction that navigates grief, suicide, substance abuse, domestic violence, and teen pregnancy. The Then Comes Hope Collection doesn’t mince words as these families face difficult circumstances. 

The series kicks off with We Go On, where you will meet Liz and Josh as they are barreling through the loss of their son and the consuming grief that follows. Their surviving son, Tyler, is trying to figure out what to do with the weight of his brother’s loss, too. After Colby took his own life, his family discovered some of his secrets, including the beautiful golden horse he called Dusty. 

The next installment, Still With Us, continues the story of Tammy and Ella as Ella spirals out of control. Addicted to drugs and clinging to an abusive boyfriend, her choices lead her to dark places. While Liz shows up for Tammy in many ways, Tyler drops everything to come to Ella’s aid.

The third book, We Grow Together, introduces new characters, Riley Hamilton and Kyle Green. A bonfire, alcohol, and a night unsupervised, and Riley finds herself pregnant. At first, the odds are against her and it seems there is no hope for the baby growing in her womb. But Tyler and Ella (all grown up since we last saw them in Still With Us) show up and love on Riley, showing her that all hope is not lost.

Grab all three books to see how these families navigate the most painful things, and how good horses help them on their journey and bring them together.

“Walker lays out the drama, stress, and emotional pain of the characters in a believable way but leaves the door open for hope and a way to go on.” Five star review from Jenny Knipfer, Author of the By the Light of the Moon Series

Josh and Liz must learn to continue living after their son, Colby, commits suicide. He left them too soon, but he left an unexpected gift behind. Dusty, the pretty mare he was keeping secret, could be a powerful tool in his family’s healing, or she could be the last thing his mom can handle.

As they wrestle with the holes in their hearts, they find themselves at odds with one another and with their faith. Tyler, their surviving son, wades through the depths of his grief and pain while watching his parents’ marriage come undone.

This is a deeply moving story about pain, loss, and faith. Sometimes the three collide in a way we never saw coming, or never wanted to experience. Join the Millers as they find hope again, one moment at a time.

Warning: This book deals with loss by suicide and the grief a family endures.

Still With Us – http://books2read.com/stillwithus

“A tell it like it is story, Still With Us portrays a realistic picture of addiction and abuse and through faith lays a pathway to redemption. Walker excels at dialogue and crafting characters real enough to walk off the pages. You’ll share their pain and victories in this inspiring story of hope, in rising above the things that can keep us bound.” Jenny Knipfer, Author of By the Light of the Moon Series

Worthless. That’s how Ella feels every time she wakes up. But when meth jolts through her veins, the ugly voice that tells her she isn’t enough goes quiet. Running away from home seems like her open door to freedom, but she finds herself in more trouble than she knows what to do with. A new friend, Tyler, makes himself available when Ella needs him the most and she starts to wonder if there is more good in the world than she saw before.

Tammy has enough blame in her heart for herself and her ex-husband, but that doesn’t seem to help Ella get away from the abusive man preying on her or the death grip drugs have on her. Nothing Tammy says seems to make a difference with Ella. She leans hard on her friend Liz, while Liz prays for an intervention in the lives of her friend and her daughter.

Get your copy of Still With Us today and find out how Ella overcomes addiction, how Tammy finds forgiveness, and how Liz and Tyler, from We Go On, use all the hurt they’ve been through to show up when they are needed most.

Warning: This book deals with drugs and abuse and may be triggering to some readers.

We Grow Together http://books2read.com/wegrowtogether

Teenagers. Alcohol. A bonfire. What could go wrong?

Too many things if you’re Riley Hamilton. Drinking for the first time ever, on Christmas Eve, leaves her too inebriated to go home on time, so she goes back to her boyfriend, Kyle Green’s place to sober up. They fool around, going further than they ever have before. Then, much to Riley’s surprise, Kyle breaks up with her before school starts back after winter break.

Six weeks later, a missing period and the weight of the world rests on Riley’s shoulders. She has to sneak around Kyle’s new girlfriend to tell him about the positive pregnancy test. He doesn’t consider the problem his, or even theirs, and demands that she figures out what to do by herself.

Tyler and Ella don’t want Riley to make a choice she’ll regret, so they offer the opportunity for a different outcome. Adoption. Married, and a few years older than we left them in Still With Us, they volunteer to raise Riley’s baby as their own.

We Grow Together is a powerful tale of the choices a young mother faces, and how she overcomes the odds stacked against her.

This is book three in the Then Comes Hope Collection.
