Blind Hope

I naively assumed that this book would be about a poor rescue pet that overcomes all odds to survive, basically I thought I was getting myself into a tear-jerker  where the dog dies at the end. That wasn't the case, in fact it was quite the opposite. There is a rescue dog, but instead of the woman saving the dog, the woman is saved by the dog (emotionally, not physically).

A mangy, bad breath, diabetes ridden dog (soon blind) slowly takes over Laurie's heart and helps Laurie realize that she's been living a lie and that she needs to be as honest and open as her lovable rescue is. The dog, Mia, helps bring Laurie closer to God and closer to finding herself.

The story is inspirational, although I believed the monologues were to dramatic even for me. It seems a little over the top? although it is based on a true story and there are photographs distributed throughout the novel. If you're sappy, and you love Christian inspirationals, and animals then this is definitely the book for you. Happy reading!

"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
