Discovering Hope introduces us to Hope and Jay who come from different experiences and backgrounds but manage to forge a beautiful friendship. The dialogue between the two is entertaining, engaging, and just plain fun.
I was impressed with the boldness of Hope's faith combined with the respect she has for those who don't share it. Jay has the gift of seeing to the heart of a matter; a gift I think he shares with the author who created him. This insight into the heart of the characters is what I think keeps me coming back to her books.
This book truly made me laugh and cry. The balance was good between the two. The truth of God's word is interwoven and handled skillfully and with grace, understanding, and a depth of knowledge you don't always find in a Christian novel. This is possibly the best book I have read of Chautona's to date and I have read quite a few!
The thing I love most about Chautona's writing is her ability to blend interesting characters, good clean humour and timely truths. It is so refreshing to have characters who are uncomplicated in their honestly and integrity. So often in stories we read of people second guessing each other, making assumptions and drawing negative conclusions. I love that Chautona's characters talk - they are open, truthful, challenging and willing to listen. This in no way means they are boring. It means that when there is doubt, fear, mistrust or questions they are brave and daring enough to face the issues head on and are willing to hear and adjust. To me these are very strong characteristics to have and make me want to spend more time with these people.
This book is about friendship. It's about having an open and accepting heart. It's about appreciating enjoying cultural differences. The story is gentle but in no way soft. Although Mrs. Havig claims not to be a romantic ... you could have fooled me!!! She understands romance as a gift to be treasured and savoured. I sort of fell in love with Jay myself ;)
Another very refreshing aspect of this story is the journey Jay takes as he discovers who Jesus is. I've seen too many Christians become offended by the doubts and questions thrown their way. Jay was allowed to question, he was given the freedom and time to search for answers and possibly most importantly, he had a friend who let him make his own decision.
Discovering Hope is delightful.
Thank you Chautona for another very enjoyable book. Keep `em coming.
very well written. Would not mind a sequel.
Chautona has such a wonderful way of making the people she writes about real. Would love to meet any of the people she has introduced to me. So far, all of the Past Forward characters, the Aggie series characters and of course the characters in Discovering Hope.
I started reading the book last night finally closed my Kindle at 5 a.m.. Got back into it again after I got up. Loved the ending. But as I said, I sure would love more. would love a book centered on Hope's parents. A wonderful love story there too.
