Blind Hope


Blind Hope: An Unwanted Dog and the Woman She Rescued by Kim Meeder  is the story of an abused and "broken" dog who helps transform the life of a "broken" woman. MIa is an Australian Shepherd mix who Laurie rescues. Through MIa, Laurie, who has struggled in her relationship with God, learns how to have faith in God. 
While this is a story about a dog, it's also a story about faith and relationships and reconnecting with God. Laurie is able to see how her relationship with Mia is not so different then her relationship with God. 

The photos in the book are a wonderful addition. I loved being able to see the two together. So often, we as readers are left to imagine what the characters, whether fictional or real, look like, so the fact we can see Mia and Laurie made me feel an even bigger connection. 

I think one of the hardest parts of reading this book was the fact that it's like a story within a story. I wish the book had been solely written and told by Laurie.

Overall, it was a quick read with a good story. I think the message in the book is one that a lot of people can either relate to or learn something from. 

 I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
