Where It All Began tells the story of Sandra Baker, a woman who finds herself pregnant with a partner who doesn't want the baby. With not enough money and no family to help, she allows him to push her into abortion. Unable to fully recover from the experience, she descends into a depression and turns to alcohol to cope, further distancing her relationship. She struggles to find meaning in her life until she meets Henry Dobbs, a Christian who radiates a comfort Sandra has been seeking. As their relationship grows, Sandra wonders if the God Henry speaks so highly of would accept her? Will she tell Henry her darkest secret? And will she ever be able to forgive herself and find healing?

Though this is technically the second book in my Heartbeats series, it can be read before the Power of Prayer as it tells the backstory of one of the characters. However, it should be read before When Hearts Collide.


A little about the author.

Lorana Hoopes is a teacher in the Pacific Northwest where she lives with her husband and three children. She is an active member of her church choir and enjoys acting and kickboxing in her spare time. Having always inspired to be a writer, she completed her first novel last year after feeling led to speak for the unborn. Her novels are inspirational fiction – a good clean romance with an inspirational message about how God cares for all of us.
