My review of Hope Heals: A True Story of Overwhelming Loss and an Overcoming Love by Katherine Wolf, Jay Wolf

Hope Heals: A True Story of Overwhelming Loss and an Overcoming Love

Hope Heals: A True Story of Overwhelming Loss and an Overcoming Love

Yet again, I am blessed to read and review a wonderful book on suffering and triumph through faith in Jesus! Hope Heals is a very interesting autobiography with perspectives from both Jay and Katherine Wolf. It is in depth without being boring and captures the trauma and trial of their long journey since the stroke.  In 2008, Katherine was a healthy, happy 26-year old married to Jay and mother of 6-month old James when suddenly and without human reason, she experienced a colossal stroke. Through the providence of God, her life was saved but with her left side permanently paralyzed and a myriad of hurdles to overcome before enjoying a more normal life again! This book is strong and full of the couple's faith. I love how Katherine is honest and shares her moments of doubt and despair and confusion over God's perfect will. Yet, what I also love is her unshakable trust in God which has led her to embrace the life He has chosen to give her. 
I highly recommend this book for those who are going through suffering, have experienced it in the past and who, like me have never gone through anything major. 
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
