Although it will be hard to top Heavenly Places (read that book ASAP if you have not already!), The Color of Hope is another amazing book by Kim Cash Tate....it picks up where Hope Springs left off, but it is still a fantastic stand-alone novel if you have not read Hope Springs yet.

As in all of her books, Ms. Tate covers profound, timely situations with grace, depth, and an ever-present focus on God and His will and wisdom....her characters are real and human; you will find yourself right in the small town of Hope Springs, wanting to be friends with Stephanie, Janelle, the Soul Sisters, and all the rest - rooting for their joys and sharing in their sorrows.

If The Color of Hope is the first Kim Cash Tate novel you pick up, you will be rushing to read the others, and if you are a seasoned reader, you are in store for another awesome, powerful read!

The Color of Hope is the newest novel in the Hope Springs series. It is a little more "gritty" than the previous stories - and I like that. Janelle and Kory move forward with wedding plans while Libby searches for meaning in her life. Libby and Travis clearly have a connection but can't go any further than friendship as long as Libby lives a life without God.

The grittiness comes in to play in the racial tension part of the storyline. Marcus, who is black, is attracted to Charley (Charlotte), who is white. Charley's grandfather is a longtime elder at Calvary - Todd's church. He really stirs up the tension here, much the same way he stirred it up in the sixties, allowing things to get out of hand.

Then there's Sam's story. Sam is a bi-racial teenager who doesn't seem to fit in. Her life really begins to get complicated when she tries to be like everyone else in order to be loved.

The Color of Hope is a well-written, sensitive story written by a sensitive author. Ms. Tate doesn't pull any punches, nor does she "side with" blacks or whites. She simply tells a story about PEOPLE. In God's sight, we're all about what's on the inside, not on the outside.

If you want to read a powerful story about love, trials, and a hope for a better future together as God's people, read this one.

In the past, I have reviewed Cherished and Hope Springs by Kim Cash Tate. These are two of my favorite Christian fiction books. Naturally, when I received an email from Booksneeze asking if I would be interested in reviewing Tate's latest book in exchange for an honest review I jumped at the chance. The publication date is listed as April 2nd, 2012 on Amazon, and I highly suggest everyone purchases this book as soon as they can.

I think Tate's books are so powerful because they deal with real life situations that any typical reader could see him or herself in within their own lives. The characters are dealing with each other, racial issues, bullying, and romance while trying to sort it all out with dignity and God's guidance in the foreground. This book had me laughing, wishing I was at the Sander's family reunion, and finally bawling through to the end. I stayed up half the night to find out how the story would conclude and was not disappointed. I look forward to more books by one of my favorite authors, Kim Cash Tate. Is it possible to give it ten stars? LOVED IT.

I received this book from Booksneeze for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. I am not required to give a positive review, merely an honest one.

Hope shines brightest when all seems lost.

Stephanie London led a life of comfort and ease in St. Louis before feeling inexplicably drawn back to her father's roots in the tiny Southern town of Hope Springs. Charlotte Willoughby has lived there all her life and longs to make a new life somewhere else. Stephanie doesn't know exactly what she's doing there--or how to occupy her time. And Charlotte doesn't understand why, despite her overbearing family and reminders of her failed engagement, she's suddenly led to stay.

Despite its small-town charm, Hope Springs itself is at a crossroads. After a failed reconciliation attempt by two well-meaning pastors, the town is split along racial and cultural lines, with little hope for redemption.

When a terrible tragedy puts Hope Springs on the national radar, the entire town is tested, and both Stephanie and Charlotte feel their lives unraveling. In the midst of heartache, though, they'll discover the true color of hope . . .

In this follow up book to Tate's book Hope Springs which I absolutely loved, I felt even more drawn in to the lives of these characters, the town of Hope Springs, and the faith that the characters have. Kim Cash Tate has written a truly wonderful book in this beautiful tale of faith and redemption.

I love Tate's writing, it is so easy to read, it brings you into the story with such great ease that you feel as if you are living in her world.

Format: Paperback
Kim Cash Tate is a dynamic writer who creates characters that come to life as you read. Her writing style draws you into the story from the first page, and keeps you reading to learn more. Her novels are more character-centered, weaving a plot around the heart of the characters she develops, and the result is a beautifully crafted novel that does not disappoint.

I had previously read and reviewed Tate's Hope Springs, and that backdrop was helpful in reading this novel. However, it was not essential. Tate balances this sequel artfully, not redundant for those who had read the previous book, yet not bewildering those who had not. This is seldom accomplished by an author in a second book, yet Tate handles this dilemma quite well.

Similar to Tate's other novels, the basis of the book remains a growing faith in God, and a living relationship with Him. Readers will not find boring Christian cliché issues, spiritual verbiage, or overdone Scriptural references. Instead, Tate invites us into the lives of characters who deepen their individual walks with God and emerge stronger and more real than before.

As the title suggests, the theme of racial differences echoes through this book. There is a sharp contrast in the town between two churches, each predominantly of different races. Their conflicts between members of their congregation are used as a springboard to deal with prejudice. Tate uses the role of the church, and the pastor, to teach the Biblical principle of love. And the result is heart-warming and realistic. As we watch the characters face where they each really stand on this issue, we are also challenged to rise to the level of Jesus' command to love one another.
