I’m delighted to say ‘Happy Publication Day’ to Eva Jordan as her latest book, A Gift of Hope is released into the world. Eva excels in writing heartfelt family based novels and I’m in no doubt that A Gift of Hope will hit all the same characteristic and realistic portrayals of the human condition. So what is the book about?
About the Book
A heartfelt novel of a Christmas shadowed by loss and regret—and brightened by hope for renewal—from the author of Time Will Tell.
Six-year-old Jack is counting the days to Christmas. But his grandmother is just counting the days until it’s over. For Jill, the holiday comes with painful memories, and she wants only to escape the recent past and its tragedies.
She’s moved and started a new life running a food truck in Widmore Bay, a quaint seaside town, in order to flee her agonising history.
It’s only for little Jack’s sake that Jill tolerates the tree and decorations. She just wants to spend Christmas with the curtains drawn, reading a book and drinking coffee.
But this season, she may stumble onto a miracle that restores joy—and hope—in her heart . . .

About the Author
Eva Jordan was born in Kent but has lived most of her life in a small Cambridgeshire town. She describes herself as a lover of words, books, travel and chocolate, and is also partial to the odd glass or two of wine. Eva is both a mum and step mum to four adult children, all of whom have, at times, inspired her writing and her family based novels. Her career has been varied including working for the library service and at a women’s refuge. A member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, Eva also writes a monthly column for a local magazine and says storytelling through the art of writing is her passion. 183 Times A Year is Eva’s debut novel, followed by All The Colours In Between, and Time Will Tell.
First off congratulations to Eva, I hope the book is a tremendous success.
I have had the privilege of reading this book as an advanced reader.
This is my review:
A Gift Called Hope by Eva Jordan
Jill, who is estranged from her husband, has moved to a seaside town to run a vegetarian snack bar, on its beach, from her van, she is looking after her young grandson, Jack but is grieving for her son, Jack’s father,
I am certain this story that will stay with me for a very long time. It moved me in a way that surprised me. It is beautifully written, the characters are believable and well-drawn. The end is satisfying, living up to the title.
It is a truly remarkable book.
