Touching story of hope -- A Fragile Hope

"Hope is relentless . . . unless we get in its way."

A Fragile Hope is another great story by Cynthia Ruchti, a story that is guaranteed to tug at your heart strings.

As I have found with every book I've read by Cynthia Ruchti, this story runs through a wide range of emotions and feelings -- hurt, anger, distrust, uncertainty for starters.  But what is needed to hold it all together are two things -- love and hope, no matter how faltering and fragile . . . or how strong . . . they may be.  In this captivating story Cynthia gives us a character whose love and hope are tested in ways that will touch a reader's heart.

Fans of great inspirational fiction should enjoy this story as they share in Josiah's journey of hope.

"When you slide to the edge of 'I can't do this anymore,'
open your eyes.
A handhold of hope is waiting in front of you."

Thanks to the author and her publisher for providing me with a copy of this book.  I am delighted to share my own thoughts in this review.

About the Book:

Hope grows when seeds are planted—even in the muddy middle of life.

Josiah Chamberlain's life's work revolves around repairing other people's marriages. When his own is threatened by his wife's unexplained distance, and then threatened further when she's unexpectedly plunged into an unending fog, Josiah finds his expertise, quick wit and clever quips are no match for a relationship that is clearly broken.

Feeling betrayed, confused, and ill-equipped for a crisis this crippling, he reexamines everything he knows about the fragility of hope and the strength of his faith and love. Love seems to have failed him. Will what’s left of his faith fail him, too? Or will it be the one thing that holds him together and sears through the impenetrable wall that separates them?
