When I got this book from the publisher to review, I didn't know how good it would be! The cover design, although interesting, doesn't reflect how real and life-changing the text of the book is!
To begin, I must point out that this book is not Nika Maples' autobiography as I expected. However, it will not disappoint and is definitely worth reading whether or not you have read her previous book describing her difficult time with lupus and then a massive stroke at age 20! In fact, after reading Hunting Hope, you, like me will feel more inclined to check out Nika's first book which explains everything she's been through.
Hunting Hope really is one of the best books I've ever read on this topic. Ms. Maples writes with clarity and wisdom, keeping everything in balance. It's hard to explain, the excitement and awe I feel when I come across books like this. I felt like Nika really speaks to my heart; convicting me even while understanding what I'm going through! She has a deep faith in the Lord and makes sure she honours and glorifies God throughout her book.
One aspect which I loved and didn't expect of this book is Nika's journey towards understanding her singleness; this really spoke to me since I, like Nika wanted to be married and have a family and, like Nika never got to! Her journey to understanding God's will for her life was wonderful and reminded me that I do have a lot even without my biggest dream.
Of course, even if you are married, this book will still change your life. Read it! And I assure you, I don't say that about every book I read.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
