The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope

The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope by Rhonda Riley (broadcast 7-22-2013) More than a love story, this is a story about love – where it comes from, how it changes us and the mystery of who the loved one really is beyond what we think we know.  A blend of magic, whimsy, tragedy and the challenges of daily life Riley brings us a unique tale with a touch of the surreal and a thought provoking proposition about our interaction and integration with the natural world.

The nature of secrets we hold from each other and community reaction to the unexplained plays into the lives of Evelyn, Addie and Adam and the family that surrounds them drawing the reader into their lives, intriguing to the very end.  As Library Journal said, “[Riley’s] exquisite language draws the reader into this improbable, beautifully rendered, somewhat biblical love story with a wildly imaginative premise that is irresistible, tender, and provocative.”  Find out more at
