As I've mentioned, I'm generally skeptical of novellas. But Julie Lessman delivers big time with A Whisper of Hope. Part of why I loved it so much was getting to see my favorite characters again, but much more is at play here. In just a few chapters, Julie manages to give Mitch a realistic motivation for his feelings, Charity a new relationship with a little tyke named Winnie, and both halves of the couple plenty of pure and passionate love. Charity has certainly grown since A Passion Redeemed. I expected her to scheme and manipulate to get what she wanted, but she and Mitch work through things like a mature couple this time. Bravo! Also, I love how Charity leaned on her mom and sisters for prayer and support in this installment.
Little Winnie steals the show, with an attitude eerily similar to that of Gabriella Dawn Smith O'Connor and a heart of gold. I especially identified with her plight of being cross-eyed; I had strabismus as a baby and went through other eye surgeries for further correction as a kid. Winnie's interactions with Charity are priceless, especially as they bond over Hershey's candy. (After all, what woman doesn't adore Hershey's)?
Novellas usually leave me wanting more, but A Whisper of Hope concluded on exactly the right note. Bravo again Julie, for a story sweeter and more enjoyable than a king-size Hershey bar--without the calories.
Having worked in a home for abused and neglected children and being a parent myself, I could identify with both sides of the story and was deeply touched by it. Author Julie Lessman provided just enough warnth, laughs, and spiritual inspiration to balance out my reader tears!
