Competition is tough at the Savannah law firm where Tami Taylor serves as a law clerk. But Tami's work sets her apart--and the firm's partners see something special in her. So they assign her to a libel case against an abrasive, outspoken preacher who is either a prophet or a lunatic.
On the surface it appears to be an open and shut case; the preacher seems fully outside the bounds of law. And Tami's strict religious upbringing could be the firm's ace-in-the-hole. But as the investigation continues, Tami is troubled by the preacher's uncanny prophetic abilities. And their client seems to be hiding something.
Tami returns to her hometown, struggling with several critical choices--as two very different men from the firm vie for her heart. Just when the challenges seem insurmountable, hope for Tami arrives from a surprising place. And it's a higher hope than she's ever imagined.

Higher Hope by Robert Whitlow is a good novel, but not one of my favorites. I’ve read a lot of novels that Robert has written and love his style, but I thought this one was lacking. This is an older book, but glad I read it.
I love stories that involve lawyers and crime. Higher Hope has both of those, but not as good as a story can be. I feel the main character Tami is a very indecisive woman. She feels one way about the cases or the guys she likes and them she changes.
I like her one boyfriend she took home to meet her family better and he got permission to court her, but she is to fickle for me.
She is studying to become a lawyer, but I don’t think that is her real calling in life.
Nothing really wrong with this book, but I didn’t care for it. Didn’t have a strong body to the story, but I will recommend it. Not bad.
