senate president. He carries the secret burden of a dysfunctional family and a below-the-surface temper. The road Drew must navigate is fraught with career upheaval, a reawakening heart, substance and domestic abuse, a violent assault, and the struggle for forgiveness and restoration. Will Drew finish his journey to embrace the hope God offers, the love Allison shares, and the guidance Chris needs, or will he turn his back on all three with catastrophic consequences?
Reviewer: Kelly Potts
“Embracing Hope” is an easily relatable book about doubts of God’s goodness when bad things happen. A young wife dies 6 months into marriage leaving the husband reeling trying to find a foothold; a father dies and leave a wife and daughter struggling to make ends meet and dealing with grief; alcoholism and physical abuse leave a student struggling between good and evil. The main characters must learn to trust, forgive and as per the title, embrace hope to endeavour to get to tomorrow. It is well written and definitely recommended.
