“Tami is one of the sharpest summer law clerks we’ve ever had at the firm. She goes to church every time the doors are open, but her beliefs make her tougher, not softer.” Higher Hope, pg 4.
Tammy Lynn “Tami” Taylor, summer law clerk in Savannah, Georgia, finds herself in the center of a civil lawsuit between a business man with an ulterior motive and a preacher with uncanny prophetic abilities. Though it seems to be an open and shut case, Tami has nagging doubts. As the investigation continues, Tami is forced to seek the answers to some tough questions. The case will bring Tami to her breaking point. The question is, will she continue on against her conscience, or will she back away?
Higher Hope is the second book in Robert Whitlow’s Tides of Truth series. Whitlow was a new author for me, having never read anything else by him. His style is easy to read. I have never been a huge fan of first person or “I” novels and I hardly ever start with the second book in a series. Though Higher Hope is both of those things, it was still a good read. There were parts of the book that made me a little uncomfortable, and caused me to pause and ponder some things – not necessarily a bad thing. One thing that I really liked about this book was the premise that someone with strong convictions can still make it in the “real world”.
