In Finding Grace on the Red River, Notes from the Red River Symphony, Nelson introduced several characters with one theme. Each one was suffering form the despair of loss. In short, they were searching for grace. In Hope on the Red River, More notes from the Red River Symphony, Nelson takes some of the same characters as they try to find hope. There is Ralph who has lost everything including his sense of self. There is Gil who has lost the love of his life, the source of his hope. Travis is paralyzed by guilt, and Hope is on a spiritual quest. Each story centers around the loss of Grace from the first novel, and their solutions revolve around the Red River.
