Jessie’s Hope by Jennifer Hallmark

Years ago, an accident robbed Jessie Smith of her mobility. She also lost her mother and became alienated from her father. When Jessie’s high school sweetheart Matt Jansen finally proposes, her excitement turns to worry. Those she loves she loses. 

With their wedding fast approaching, Jessie’s grandfather, Homer, searches for the perfect dress for “his Jessie” — one that would allow her to forget, even if for a moment, the boundaries of her wheelchair. But finances and one unexpected disaster after another thwart his plans.

Determined to heal from her past, Jessie seeks to find her father. Perhaps the pair can reconcile their differences. Can a sliver of hope lead to everlasting love? Or is it enough to accept that sometimes grace and faith allow us to live with joy, regardless of our circumstances.
