At the Corner of Hope is a light-hearted book, set in downtown London, Ontario. Matt McNair, a young computer programmer from Toronto, buys an old house at the corner of Hope Street and converts it into a Bed & Breakfast operation. New friends who come to the B&B, along with old friends from his childhood days in London, help Matt work through the changes in his life as the 21st century opens. Colourful and funny, a romance with a little mystery thrown in - itīs a good read.

Reviewers say:

"At the Corner of Hope's small community of characters jostle together with hope, humour and some shards of disappointment as Waterston's fine eye for haracter and situation make her novel bristle with good fun and expert story-telling. The book paints a flavour-of-the-familiar portrait of neighbourliness and of how relationships, both nurtured and squandered, can repair wounds and change lives. Readers . . . will revel in this keenly observed, imaginative, close-to-home chronicle. It's a terrific read."

Nancy Schiefer, London Free Press, June 12, 2008

"London author Elizabeth Waterston refers to her city as "a quieter world, a less complicated world" in her new novel At the Corner of Hope. Less complicated perhaps, but she believes it still has a lot of colour, which comes through in the book, focusing on real places (with some imagination thrown in). "
