Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Readers will be humming the Chariots of Fire theme song as they turn the pages of Cushman’s latest present-day novel of a race well run. College student Sabrina Rice was an Olympic hopeful until a devastating diagnosis left her grappling with the pain of a crushed dream and a spiritual battle born of the realization that God doesn’t always behave the way we think he should. When her path crosses with a teenage graffiti artist fleeing the scene of her crime, Sabrina recognizes the girl’s potential as a runner. Brandy soon finds herself at Sabrina’s mercy when the court mandates extracurricular activity in lieu of juvenile detention. As Sabrina attempts to pass the baton to Brandy, both learn what it truly means to endure life’s marathons. As Christian-fiction writer Cushman brings together two unlikely souls facing difficult obstacles, readers will be inspired as they rise to meet the challenges set before them. With strong themes of faith and perseverance, Chasing Hope is sure to be a hit with fans of contemporary inspirational fiction featuring strong women. --Elizabeth Ponder

From the Back Cover

A Touching Story of Two Unlikely Friends.
The Power of Trust.
The Struggle of Pain.
And How, Sometimes, Following God Can Lead You to the Most Unexpected Places.

A talented runner determined to make the Olympics, Sabrina Rice had her dreams shattered by a devastating diagnosis. One forfeited scholarship and several years later, she's forged a new vision for her future that has nothing to do with running, which she's buried deep, intent on forgetting...

Until the day she sees Brandy Philip running across the college campus, easily outpacing security. Sabrina immediately recognizes world class potential, and it's all the more painful that it belongs to a troublemaking teen. When a chance encounter brings the two young women together, Sabrina realizes she's Brandy's best hope to salvage a life about to spiral out of control forever.

"A dynamic inspirational novel about having hope and finding strength...You'll laugh, cry and cheer with these characters as you read Chasing Hope. This one's a keeper!" -Fresh Fiction

I fell in Love with Katie's books when I read her first fantastic book, A Promise to Remember back in 2007. She does not write fast enough for me. I can't wait for her next book to come out!
Chasing Hope is just as good as that one. I love a book about God putting two unlikely people together, and blessing them both.
God help both Sabrina and Brandy fight their way through the wilderness and he never gave up on either one of them.
Chasing Hope has an ending that with make you sit back and smile so big everyone around you will be wondering what you just read.
This is a fast read that you can not put down once you start reading it.
I gave this book 5 stars two times. I HIGHLY recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.

On a side note I have read all six of Katie's books and they are all five star books. You should check them all out! I have them all on my bookshelf that's just how good they are.

REACTION:
First off, I fell in love with this book because of the cover, I thought it was beautiful and different. I like running, and figured the book sounded entertaining enough to be worth reading.

It was simple, well-written, and a somewhat unique idea. I haven’t read very many books about running.

There were sweet moments, times when I wondered what would happen, and there was some great character growth in this story especially for Mel. It was entertaining and I enjoyed reading this book, but… It just isn’t a favorite. The ending was wonderful, I liked the main characters, and the realistic aspects to the story… I am just not wowed by it.

Sabrina and Brandy had a great relationship. It was realistic and bumpy, panning out well as the story pushed on. There are some spiritual aspects to this book; we see disappointment, growth, and change in our main characters’ relationship with Christ. The ending was one of my favorite parts, though I wish the story led up to the ending a bit more.

CRITIQUE:
It was not a waste of my time to read Chasing Hope. I liked the characters and the change of pace from some of the other books I’ve read, but it did seem to lack something as a whole to make it stand out. I wished there was a bit more development of the romantic relationship in this book as well, it seemed to jump quickly.

I would consider reading another one of Kathryn Cushman’s novels, but if I did not see even more improvement and growth in her writing, I do not know that I would bother finishing the book.

I seriously had tears in my eyes as I read the last pages. What does a person do when she's heard God's call for her life, begins the work of that call, and it all falls to pieces? How does a woman move forward? Did she miss the call...or the working out of it?

I have always enjoyed Kathryn Cushman's books, but I believe that this is my favorite. I will read this one again and again.

Honestly I didn't think I'd like this book, it sat in my Kindle for a year before I read it. I was pleasantly surprised by it and found I really enjoyed reading it and really cared about the characters. Kathryn Cushman is skilled at developing compassion and building a gentle suspense. Both Sabrina and Brandy drew my interest, they both felt like underdogs to me and I kept rooting for them to reach their potential. There is a fair amount of running talk and that is what initially held me back from reading it, but again it was done in a way that I think most people can relate to or at least enjoy. Then end result was uplifting and motivating!

I loved this book! So often we think we know our paths in life until upon closer inspection, prayer, we see the road God has planned for us. I will continue to read this author as her writing was delightful and engaging.

A great story about what to do when the dreams you feel called to do doesn't end up the way you planned. Will you trust God or yourself? Everyone will relate to her main character Sabrina's struggles with a life altering illness that snatches her hard earned goals out from under her. And we'll also relate to rebellious teenager Brandy who just needs someone to believe in her. Recommended for women's fiction fans and those who enjoy the likes of Deborah Raney and Karen Kingsbury.

Well this was quite a different read for me. I didn't know what to expect when I opened the first page. Sabrina Rice started running very young and dreamed of being in the Olympics then traveling as a missionary. Sabrina's dreams are shattered and she is trying to move on with her life giving up running. Brandy comes into Sabrina's life thru their grandmothers. Sabrina learns to listen to her heart and Brandy finds a better path in life. Quite the inspirational book.

This is just the sort of story I needed to read this week. So full of the right message, so full of hope in the face of life's realities. The only critique I really have about this story is that it wants a clearer gospel message. Through God and the Lord Jesus can I do all things in His strength that He gives me to do His work He calls me to. I long to return to running regularly, but it will have to wait a little longer.
