Born into privilege, but robbed of her mother, Hope always lives up to her name. She's a feisty, stubborn fighter who never gives up, whether pursuing a criminal or struggling to save her marriage.
And what a battle it's been. Her whirlwind love affair with bad boy Bo has been threatened by her loveless first marriage and Hope's all-powerful father, Doug. Even after Bo and Hope mailed the invitations, it seemed like the wedding would never happen. (Bo had to escape the police and steal a horse to make the ceremony.) Staying together never gets easier, although Hope and Bo never really fall out of love. During their tumultuous relationship, Hope has battled drug smugglers, thwarted Stefano DiMera, and fallen victim to the Salem Stalker.
In the end, Hope's journey comes down to one thing: finding the silver linings in life's darkest clouds. And she manages to do just that, no matter how bleak things get. Even while grieving the unimaginable death of her baby, Hope finds a way to transcend the loss by donating young Zach's organs to Belle and Philip's infant daughter, Claire. Will Hope ever really settle down, or will the thrill of the chase pull her back to a life of intrigue?
