TeJae Smythe gave up on God and her hometown of Evansville, Indiana, ten years ago, but a deep personal loss requires her to return to both. Her life as a stewardess is going to be perfect. She has a plan. If only life would stick to it. In Hope Travels Through, TeJae finds the biggest challenge comes from the conflict within herself. Will she hold it all together? Or will she fall apart and embrace the beauty in the midst of disaster? Based on the actual events of December 13, 1977, a date most people don’t remember, but one many living in the Ohio River Valley will never forget, the crash of the University of Evansville men’s basketball team plane.
If you lived through the 1970’s, this book will ring as true as your own memories. If you didn’t, it will provide you with a vivid picture of that transitional time. But the human, romantic, well-told story will touch you, no matter when you were born. —Nancy Rue, award-winning American novelist and author of more than 120 books for adults, teens, and tweens
