After tragedy upends her world, Jeannette Mason retreats to the tiny Oregon seaside town of Hope Harbor to create a new life. Vowing to avoid emotional attachments, she focuses on running her lavender farm and tea-room—until a new neighbor with a destructive dog and a forlorn little girl invades her turf. But she needn’t worry. Dr. Logan West is too busy coping with an unexpected family, a radical lifestyle change, and an unruly pup to have any interest in his aloof and disagreeable neighbor.

Yet when both Jeanette and Logan find themselves pulled into the life of a tattered Christian family fleeing persecution in war-torn Syria, might they discover that love sometimes comes calling when it’s least expected?

Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites readers back to the charming seaside town of Hope Harbor, where they are sure to find peace, healing, and a second chance at happiness.

Interview with Toby the beagle!

Tell me a little about yourself, Toby.
I’m a one-year-old beagle—barely out of puppy stage—with lots of energy! I don’t remember my first owner very well. He didn’t keep me long. I’m not sure why. I think maybe he got tired of me barking in his ear every morning. But hey, he needed a wake-up call. Now I live in Hope Harbor with Logan and a little girl named Molly. We just moved here.

Tell me about your new home.
Hope Harbor is awesome! Much better than San Francisco. We live near a beach, and I love running on the sand. Next door there’s a cool garden with big plants that are easy to dig up. I brought one home for Logan the other day, but he didn’t seem to appreciate it. Neither did the lady next door.

Is Molly a good playmate?
Not yet. She’s kind of nervous around me, so I don’t jump on her too much or lick her. I think she’s about five, so she’s pretty little for a human. And she’s very sad. I’ve been doing my best to make her laugh, but so far I haven’t succeeded. But I’ll keep trying!

How do you like living with Logan and Molly?
Logan’s an okay guy, even if we don’t always get along. I mean, the trash can was right there the other night. How could I not explore it? But he didn’t like washing the floor—again. He’s real nice to Molly, though, and tries hard to be a good dad…even if he needs a lot of practice. Molly’s sweet, but too quiet. We need to fix that. And we will!

Besides running on the beach, what’s your favorite thing to do?
Bark and dig and play hide-and-seek with Logan. Unfortunately, he doesn’t like any of those things. I don’t think he’s used to having a dog around. But I’m working on him. One of these days I’ll have him trained!

Book Reviews for Journey To Osm Novel - By S.E.T. Amazon UK Reviewer

The Blue Unicorn's Journey To Osm - Reader Review


'I had to learn to believe in myself.'
What a lovely line to end the narrative - but this is deeply representative of the trials we all face - in any situation.
I loved this story of Blue - saviour of the unicorns - but without metal or magic - or any belief in himself - the task he is destined to undertake since birth, seems hopeless.
This is a lovely tale of triumph over adversity, of the not so perfect stallion finding his courage in a sea of hostility.
It is written so beautifully, with exquisite drops of brilliance that you find in all classic fantasy fairytales, I can really see this as a Pixar animation.
