Book Reviews

hope alone

Grace Neunaber may have everything she’s ever dreamed of, but sometimes it’s too much. With an infinite to-do list and not enough sleep, she can’t even get out of survival mode. Her struggles dim, however, in light of the challenges of her oldest daughter, Faith.

Despite Faith’s best intentions to keep everyone happy, disaster after disaster strikes. Grace must set aside her own difficulties so she can be there for her daughter. And in order to survive the uncertainties, Faith must loosen her grip on her grudges and cling to the hope that God is the only one in her life who hasn’t changed.

This was the third book in the Sola Series and by far my favourite of the series. (You can my review for book 2 HERE) Once again, the strong theme of the sanctity of life was upheld, and other themes were added. Forgiveness, love, trust in the Father, and a strong belief in the sovereignty of God.

This was a hard book to read because the truth of some of the issues the Neunaber family faced was so hard hitting, yet dealt with honestly. It was a beautiful book because the truths found in Scripture were applied, and the lessons the family learned were needful.

The writing style took a bit to get into, but once I did . . . wow. The storyline was amazing, and I can think of three times when I *thought* I knew what was going to happen, and I was thrown a curveball.

I loved the relationships between all the characters, and watching them all grow and learn was emotional, to say the least. All the trials that the family faced made the book real to life, and the way that the whole family draws together is amazing to behold.

I love the interaction between family members and the loyalty the family displays towards one another, while still being willing to speak hard truths and keep each other accountable. That’s real love – when you can love someone enough to confront them about certain issues, and you love can love the person enough to be still and just listen to their concerns and take them to heart.

I would recommend this book for older readers (16+) because of the mentions of teen pregnancy. Nothing too detailed, but this is a continuation of the second book, so the same issues still remain.

All in all, a four star read, that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I received this book from RABT Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
I was not required to like this book, only to give an honest opinion.

I am a 23 year old young lady who is redeemed and saved from my sin only by the grace of God. A bibliophile at heart with a love of history who desires to see the Word of God practically applied to all aspects of our daily lives -- in our homes, in the grocery store, in the political realm. I strive to put my jumbled, chaotic thoughts down onto paper -- reducing them into black and white rows, letters, sentences. Into some semblance of sanity. And I share them here with all of you, where I can challenge you, make you think, and cause you to ask questions. I am the oldest of eleven children living the country life in the deep south.

What are your thoughts?
