Long ago, before judgement ruled the world, there was love. Our hearts remember it and we seek out the stories of people giving a helping hand to each other. Stories like Debbie Macomber’s 16 Lighthouse Road from the Cedar Cove series, Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series, Sheryll Woods Chesapeake Shores series, including Harbor Lights and a new author to me, RaeAnne Thayne, who writes books like Willowleaf Lane.
While these books have good and bad people, sometimes horrific events, and decisions that must be made, many of the people are trying to give a helping hand.
That is the spirit of H.O.W. — Helping One Woman.
The concept is simple. Each month a group of women gather for dinner and companionship. They add $10 to a fishbowl (or more), and the monies are given to a woman in need who was chosen by the group the month before. No judgement about how the woman got in the position. Only love and a helping hand.
