About the Author
Tim 'Dr. Hope' Anders is an award-winning children's book author. Born in New York City, he learned a spirit of optimism and humor from his mother that would stick with him throughout his life. When he was forcibly separated from her at an early age, these lessons empowered him to cope with his ever-changing surroundings. He credits his mother, the heroine of Everybody Calls My Father, Father, as his inspiration for his many value based children's books. Dr. Hope vowed that one-day he would give children the same tools that had helped him cope with difficult situations and disagreeable people. And boy, did he. From the promise he made to himself came the award winning "Life Lessons Series," a series of children's books that teach children "life" lessons in entertaining and amusing ways. Among the titles he has written are Laughing Day, The Frog Who Couldn't Jump, Chip, the Little Computer, Punctuation Pals, Wonderful Wuzs and Little Miss Contradiction. He has also written two self-help books: The Best Red Book on Weight Control and Pumping Iron: A Traveling Poker Player's 10 Minute Hotel Room Workout. Tim 'Dr. Hope' Anders is also a professional poker player and can be seen on TV playing in World Poker Tour events. He is also a talented piano player, composer, lyricist, and producer. He has teamed up with Comic/Actor/Singer Russ T. Nailz and together they have created a series of delightfully humorous children's CDs and cassettes. On the CDs Dr. Hope's stories are brought to life through talented voice actors, special audio effects, heart-felt background music, and delightfully humorous songs that make kids think and laugh. Dr. Hope donates a portion of his royalties and poker winnings to ChildHelp(r) an organization that fights child abuse. In 2005 the San Diego Chapter of ChildHelp(r) awarded him and his wife, the For the Love of a Child Award, to honor them for their years of commitment in helping victims of child abuse.

I grew up in the church which is why I wanted to read this story. I’ve struggled with church related matters almost my whole life, so I thought this story might be refreshing/may make me feel a little less alone. I wasn’t let down. It’s a gripping story and will have you wanting to read from beginning to end in one sitting.
I especially loved his mother’s character. Often, women in literature play certain roles, but she stuck out as a brave and vibrant soul from the get-go which was very refreshing. The descriptions were vivid and brought the time period to life for me too.
This is definitely a story that should have been told. Incredible, I’d recommend to anyone looking for a good tale, no matter your genre preferences.
