Julia's Last Hope (by Janette Oke)

'Julia's Last Hope' is a light Christian historical novel by Janette Oke.

The town of Cedar Springs is dying, as the lumber mill closes down. Julia, in her lovely home, suggests turning it into a tourist town. With the help of her twin daughters, she starts advertising and taking in boarders, encouraging the few remaining families to stock a craft shop and host other visitors.

There is a strong Christian message of home, as well as a sense of finding God's will as the story ends. Probably intended for teenage girls, but recommended to anyone who wants a light and uplifting moral novel.

Recommended.
