Healing Notes by Beth Hope

Healing Notes by Beth Hope (Author)

Liam McPherson is grappling with the aftermath of a life spent in toxic environments. Haunted by the things he said and did during those years, Liam isn't sure he'll ever be able to forgive himself. He isn't even sure he deserves forgiveness. Despite his therapist's assurances he's healing and making progress working through an ugly past, he doesn't see it.

Life has never been particularly kind to Zoe Callahan.  Abandoned by her parents at the age of five, she's spent her life unable to escape the claws of her abusive guardian-turned-boss. She's been given good reason to automatically assume the worst of others. And yet, she never has, nor has she let the flame of hope inside be extinguished.

When Liam and Zoe cross paths at their volunteer job, he experiences something he's never felt before: Attraction. For the first time in years, he cautiously considers trusting someone again. Given his history of putting his faith in the wrong people, trusting Zoe is a risk. Especially since he knows that once she realizes who he is, she may want nothing to do with him. 

But what if she can see there's more to him than his past?  

Healing Notes is a sweet and poignant love story. Balancing delicate subject material with gentle humor, it delves into the complexities of trauma, the unpredictability of life, and, above all, the power of love and hope.

Your past will always be a part of you, Liam, but that doesn't mean it should get to control your future.
