Today I’m reviewing Hallowed Halls, the first book in the Hallowed Halls series by Hannah Alexander.
Here is a brief synopsis:
When Dr. Joy Gilbert is fired from a lucrative position she hates in the city, she returns to her small hometown to find her former fiance single, her once vivacious mother struggling financially and physically, and Tressa, the 15-year-old daughter of the boss who just fired her, popping out of the back door of her car.
Tressa refuses to return to the city, where her divorced parents struggle emotionally over the death of their son. When Dr. Zack Tyler sees Joy walk into the ER with the daughter of the man who lured Joy away from him, he’s hesitant, though he’s overjoyed to see her again.
Out of compassion, he hires her in the ER so she can support herself and her mother, and their relationship blooms.
Meanwhile, Tressa has blackouts that grow increasingly bad. Joy and Zack rediscover their love for one another as they discover what caused the break-up.
Together they work to save Tressa and uncover a rare genetic defect, a mystery that has ravaged decades of Tressa’s family line.

I am more than impressed… I am blown away!
This is the second time I have read this book… and it’s every bit as good as the first time!
Hannah created the most intriguing characters for her novel; Molly is my favorite — most likely because I’m also struggling financially and physically, but those things don’t really matter. Weston is the character you love to hate; yet even he does a lot of changing over the course of the story. (And since I’ve read book 2 in the series… well, let me just say that there’s lots more to his story…)
I was expecting a story about pain medication misuse, which is there, but I was thrilled that the story expands, including all the families involved with the main characters. By the time I finished the story — even the second time around — I would not have been surprised to see one of the characters walk past me (and yes, I definitely would have recognized them).
I absolutely LOVE this book! It was a joy to read!
I applaud the author(s) for writing a novel with such controversy, and hints of violence, without betraying Christian principles.
