Reviews from Amazon
“This story is about love and redemption; about hope for the future. It’s a story that every Christian will enjoy and everyone going through hard times should read.”
“A beautiful story of faith, hope and love. I highly recommend it and look forward to reading subsequent books from Elizabeth Diaz.”
“A very well-written and thought-provoking Christian fiction novel Enticing plot with several unforeseen circumstances that arise and a fantastic climax.”
I do not consider myself a religious person. I don’t attend church. I have never read the bible. I don’t know how to pray. I am not one who would normally sign up to read a “Christian” anything and I’m not sure how I did, but – to the shock and awe of even my husband – I truly enjoyed this book.
I immediately related to Olivia and her relationship with her mother. Been there. Done that. Still doing it.
I want to say the story line was predictable because in someone ways it was and you knew that “that thing” was going to happen, but it all still came as such a shock when it did.
I found myself smiling. I found myself crying. I found myself wishing I had a supportive group of friends that Olivia found herself with. I founds myself wishing we could continue to follow their story and that the book didn’t end.
I will admit, there is a lot of “pray with me”, “let’s pray”, etc. that isn’t my thing and a lot of “God this” and “God that” but if you could look past the actual religious aspect and see the characters of these people. They were amazing. Non judgmental. Friendly. Caring. Loving. Supportive. They were everything a person needs and should be.
If you consider yourself Christian, I truly believe you will enjoy Finding Hope. If you do not align yourself with Christianity, but have an open mind and can over look the praying and the God parts, I am sure you will enjoy it.
