I was bought this book because I'd read one by this author and the person thought I'd enjoy this one too, being a 'short read'.

This book is called a Child Called Hope, but I think Hope was shy because she didn't appear until three-quarters of the way through the book! If the book is about being a foster mother to Hope then, to me, the book has to be about that, not about your life, another foster child called Sofia and then Hope.

No I didn't like this book. For me, as it comes under the category of 'short read', it would be ideal for anyone going on holiday or during work lunch breaks.

What I love about this book is the honesty and the raw emotion. Nothing is hidden or sugar coated, even if that's.uncomfortable at times. The author is really brave and talks about her own failings as well as her successes. She is very human and caring and gives her all. The book moved me to tears, which I think is quite rare. Can't wait to read the next in the series

I like to read fact not fiction and this fitted the bill down to the last word in my opinion.
