Chautona has a gift for creating characters that I would like to know personally. She captures the essence of the characters in a way that makes you want to meet them. This book is no exception.
Discovering Hope introduces us to Hope and Jay who come from different experiences and backgrounds but manage to forge a beautiful friendship. The dialogue between the two is entertaining, engaging, and just plain fun.
I was impressed with the boldness of Hope's faith combined with the respect she has for those who don't share it. Jay has the gift of seeing to the heart of a matter; a gift I think he shares with the author who created him. This insight into the heart of the characters is what I think keeps me coming back to her books.
This book truly made me laugh and cry. The balance was good between the two. The truth of God's word...
Jay and Hope are on the road to discovering what true friendship is all about.
The thing I love most about Chautona's writing is her ability to blend interesting characters, good clean humour and timely truths. It is so refreshing to have characters who are uncomplicated in their honestly and integrity. So often in stories we read of people second guessing each other, making assumptions and drawing negative conclusions. I love that Chautona's characters talk - they are open, truthful, challenging and willing to listen. This in no way means they are boring. It means that when there is doubt, fear, mistrust or questions they are brave and daring enough to face the issues head on and are willing to hear and adjust. To me these are very strong characteristics to have and make me want to spend more time with these people.
This book is about friendship. It's about having an open and accepting heart. It's about appreciating enjoying cultural differences. The story is...
This is a review full of firsts. Let me explain. I am a reader - a very avid reader. I have read so many books this year that I can't even begin to count. But this is the first time I've stopped to review a book. This is big. I'm just not a write-a-review type of person, on anything, even when I'm blown away by the product. I am THAT impressed with this book - that I took the time to sit down and tell you about it. My other first is this: This is the first book I've read by Chautona Havig. I'd never even heard of her. I am in love with her writing style. I cannot wait to read every single book she has out. I thought I knew of every good Christian author but I'd managed to miss this author somehow. So glad I found her! This book was so emotional and personal. I felt like I knew these two people - Jay's character is still with me. He was so very real to me. I love who he was and hope to find someone like him one day. ;) A girl can dream! This book made me laugh, cry, and think real...
