    One thought on “Undaunted Hope”

    1. I am always intrigued by a story that highlights a character that was not well-loved in a previous book. If you’ve read Hearts Made Whole, then you know Tessa wasn’t the most likeable secondary character. It made me so eager to read her story in Undaunted Hope, and the wait was certainly worth it. Tessa has matured and realized the error of her old ways. However, she still has a certain sass and isn’t afraid to step out in a profession that had traditionally been held by men. For me her ch [...]

    2. If you read the previous novel in Jody Hedlund’s Beacons of Hope series, you remember Tessa. I have been eagerly awaiting her own novel since I turned the last page of Hearts Made Whole, because well, you’ll just have to read that book :). I think Tessa was my favorite – she’s a solid lead and knowing her past, Jody did a wonderful job showing her growth and maturity. It’s such a reminder that we are not our past mistakes. Plus she’s been keeping things sassy since 1871, so she’s w [...]

    3. Jody Hedlund is one of those authors who is just consistently GOOD. I know whenever I pick up one of her books that I will be swept away by the writing, the history, the characters, the romance (blissful sigh!!), and the message of faith. Every single time. Including her latest release, Undaunted Hope. Up until I began Undaunted Hope, my favorite romantic hero of Jody’s has been Carl from A Noble Groom. But now I don’t know, y’all… Alex is giving him some serious competition. I cannot re [...]

    4. Tessa Taylor is looking forward to starting over in Michigan's Upper Peninsula as a teacher. She's hoping to escape her past. Upon her arrival, she's dismayed to discover that there was a mistake. The town requested a male teacher. Homeless, jobless, and with winter setting in, Percival Updegraff agrees to let her remain as the teacher until spring which then places Tessa into his debt. A debt that he won't hesitate to collect upon. Determined to bot be replaced come spring, Tessa throws herself [...]

    5. I loved this rugged setting for Tessa's story. The landscape and harsh weather is a huge element in the book and I was able to picture it vividly. Tessa is a proud and opinionated young woman, but with a kind heart as she strives to help not only the children, but the men of the town as well, further their education to improve their life situation. Although the living conditions are not ideal, she quickly connects with several children and members of the community. One family in particular she i [...]

    6. Well hello, Alex Bjorkhund, my name is Kav and I fell in love with you on page 20 (she confesses, blushing furiously.) Brash, determined, a tease and a flirt with a great sense of humour that matches Tessa's. Phew! Is that steam rising off the pages? Because whenever Tessa and Alex are in the same scene sparks do fly. Alas Tessa is intent on a teaching career and not romance -- especially with a lighthouse keeper. She comes from a lighthouse keeping family and the tragic memories still haunt her [...]

    7. A beautiful conclusion to the Beacons of Hope trilogy that even wraps up the story from its prequel novella! An absolute must-read and keeper -- I couldn't put it down! Full review will be posted closer to publication date.

    8. The lighthouse backdrop continues in the third book of the Beacons of Hope Series. Two things in particular I am enjoying about the series. First, the hand made cross that was introduced in the first novel continues to make its way through lighthouse territory. Second, the author's note at the end that details her research and the parts of the novel is based upon fact add to the overall appeal of the novel.Undaunted Hope is about Tessa. Tessa was not a likeable character in book two so it was gr [...]

    9. I love it when an author takes a previously unlikable character and gives them the chance to redeem themselves and turn to their life around, especially when they devote an entire book to this journey! Tessa was definitely an annoying character in the previous Beacons of Hope novel, manipulating her family members and situations to get what she wanted. She wasn't your stereotypical villain, just a misunderstood teenage girl searching for love in all the wrong places. Tessa's actions might have b [...]

    10. Reviewed at The Power of Words: bit/1nLzHOeI’ve been blessed to have read enough of Jody Hedlund’s books to know that she is consistent in all that she delivers – captivating storytelling combined with rich characterization, romantic tension, vivid sense of place, and a wealth of historical details drawing from actual eras and people. Rather than saying that this or that book is my favorite, I think that with Jody’s writing, the book I am currently reading becomes my favorite. However, I [...]

    11. The lighthouse was lovely, as always. That's the single most outstanding setting in Ms. Hedlund's Beacons of Hope series that I continue to enjoy. I grew up on the Oregon coast, with countless lighthouses, so it's always fun and nostalgic to read a novel that includes a lighthouse. I think it's time to speak life to Christian historic romance writers. You can do this.Ms. Hedlund, I have read some amazing stories by you. The Preacher's Bride? Oh my gosh, that is the best book ever, one of my top [...]

    12. As I have read each of the books in Jody Hedlund's "Beacons of Hope Series" I have been amazed at the lives of the characters who lived during the mid to late 1800s and who manned the light houses in and around the Michigan and Great Lakes area. Living in North Carolina as I do, I know some of the history and necessity of light houses for the safe sailing of ships throughout history. Hidden shoals or rocky shores are treacherous and make such areas burial sites for many a ship and sailor.But I a [...]

    13. Undaunted Hope stands alone if you have not read the rest of the series. However, those who have read book two, Hearts Made Whole, will recognize that the main character in this novel comes from that story. The leading lady is Tessa, who caused all kinds of heartache in the previous book. She has grown into a very upstanding young lady, who deeply regrets her past actions that hurt her family.I truly liked Tessa throughout this whole novel. She was a character who could be a bit stubborn at time [...]

    14. After reading about 1/4 of the book, I decided not to finish it. I am not a big romance fan, and from chapter one, Tessa was engrossed with Alex's rippling muscles and drowning in his cobalt blue eyes. Just mentioning that doesn't quite bother me, but when it goes on and on, chapter after chapter, her clearly lusting after this man, it just was too much (one quote that is very mild, "He was a beautiful specimen of manhood. She honestly had no desire to take her eyes off of him, even though she k [...]

    15. 4.5 starsThere's some tough reading stuff in this one (has elements of man-against-man and man-against-nature types of plots, which really put me on the edge of my seat), as an upper-Michigan mining town struggles against the climate and the local despot. Tessa is determined to make a new, independent start, despite a less than welcoming beginning in the new town where she intends to teach. But soon she comes to realize that unfriendliness is the least of her worries.I loved her relationship wit [...]

    16. 1871, Eagle Harbor, MichiganTessa had been the daughter of a lighthouse keeper. She saw too many shipwrecks and family deaths due to this dangerous occupation, and if she never set foot in another lighthouse it would be too soon. Escaping her past poor choices and ruined reputation, Tessa finds a teaching position in a mining village on the shore of upper Michigan.Alex Bjorklund was the most handsome man Tessa had ever seen, saving her three times in the space of a few minutes. First he rescues [...]

    17. This is the third novel in the Beacons of Hope series, which are so far subtly Christian historical romances set in various lighthouses of Michigan during the 1860s and 1870s. In this novel, the main focus is on Tessa who is the sister of the keeper in the previous novel, and she becomes a teacher in a small town determined to redeem her reputation that she had cast aspersions on through her own deceit and immature decisions regarding her new brother-in-law, but I'm not trying to put spoilers he [...]

    18. Well. This definitely had me spinning!There’s something special about stories and characters getting a second chance at redemption. Like the third novel in the Beacons Of Hope series, Undaunted Hope, and Its lovely heroine, Tessa Taylor. If you’ve read my review on the second novel in the series, Hearts Made Whole, you would know that it absolutely won me over. Or I should say the entire series so far. And I was excited to know the next story in the series would be Tessa’s.…Where to star [...]

    19. This was my least favorite story in this series. I liked Tessa in this book, and I liked Michael and his children, but I didn't like Alex. The story itself was okay, but I didn't like the ending. Also, I was happy that Henry made an appearance in this book, but I was disappointed that Isabel was only mentioned. The setting, another Michigan lighthouse, was my favorite part of this book.

    20. Undaunted Hope was one of those disturbing yet compelling books that I just could not put down. It’s a story about emotional turmoil, perseverance, human will, and the amazing power within us that propels us to rise above the darkness that shrouds all hope ― I really liked it!___________________________________WHAT I LIKED+ Undaunted Hope is a story peppered with some pretty distressing themes ― hopelessness, strife, animosity, restlessness, domestic violence, gender roles, and misogyny. Y [...]

    21. Beginning one of Jody’s books is like opening that first box of long-awaited Thin Mints during Girl Scout cookie season. You know that once it’s open, you won’t be able to stop until you’ve devoured the entire thing. Jody Hedlund never fails to craft stories that keep me engaged from start to finish. As soon as I saw the cover of Undaunted Hope and read the back cover blurb, I knew I was going to have to carve out an entire chunk of my day to read the latest book in Jody Hedlund’s Beac [...]

    22. Once again, Jody Hedlund has composed a beautifully descriptive novel, the third in her Beacons of Light series. Strong characters prevail throughout this impressive adventure in Michigan's northern-most location. A villainous brute of a man controls this mining town of Eagle Harbor and everyone in it. Upon discovering that T. Taylor is a woman, he vows to make her life miserable.The character Tessa portrays is strong willed, resolute and determined to demonstrate her capable teaching skills in [...]

    23. First off I'll start by saying Jody Hedlund's books have always been some of my favorites. I tend to add her books to my wishlists without even reading the cover blurbs. I just KNOW they will be that good. Her adult historical fiction books take up a large space on my rather small keeper shelf, so having to write this review is painful. Simply put, I did not care for this book. Tessa Taylor comes off as snobbish and judgy and waaaaaay too easily distracted by a pretty face. I kept thinking to my [...]

    24. Unlike many series, Jody Hedlund's Beacons of Hope series keeps getting better and better. Undaunted Hope is my favorite book in the series. I love Tessa's story! Tessa hopes to leave past mistakes behind as she travels to the community of Eagle Harbor, located on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the 1870's. When Tessa arrives to serve as the teacher in this small community, she hopes to be a beacon of light to this small community. The miners and their families are living in fear of an unscru [...]

    25. I've really enjoyed Jody Hedlund's Beacons of Hope series. Set at a variety of shoreline lighthouse locations in Michigan - it provides a location surrounded by beauty, with that very real element of danger that those who lived their lives as Lighthouse Keepers faced. The third book follows Tessa, who we meet in the 2nd book, but you could read all of these books as a stand alone as Jody does a good job of a quick summary to keep the reader appraised of pertinent details from the past. Tessa is [...]

    26. Tessa Taylor's precocious and resolute character first graced the pages in Hearts Made Whole, during which she jeopardized her reputation and fractured the relationship with her sister with the singular goal of escaping the hardship and emotional turmoil of life in a lighthouse. Undaunted Hope finds Tessa in a desolate mining town isolated by a relentless Michigan winter, reformed of her rebellious and impetuous youth, yet still running from the memories.This Tessa is a woman to be admired with [...]

    27. What an amazing story. As soon as this book started I fell in love with these characters and their town. The struggles they all faced, yet their willingness to look after each other simply warmed my heart. As individuals they warmed my heart, but the community as a whole won me over.This is a love story, but it is filled with many unexpected twists and turns that I really enjoyed. I wanted so badly for justice to be served and for everyone to get their happy ending. I won't give spoilers, but I [...]

    28. UNDAUNTED HOPE is a really good book. It is book three in Ms. Hedlund's Beacon's of Hope series. It was really emotional. It had me crying at times and laughing at times. I really liked Tessa because she wasn't afraid to speak her mind even if it got her in trouble like countless times. The hero, Michael, he lost his wife five years ago. I understand him grieving for five years. I was waiting the entire book for him to wake up but he never really did. He was like the Walking Dead the entire book [...]

    29. Not nearly as good as the first two as it didn't have as much about lighthouses and I wasn't as fond of the main character. I still stayed up late to finish it though. :D
