I love Beth's writing and this story, i just knew it would break me heart and I was right. Right from the start you feel the heartbreak of Hope and Jamie, throughout the book we have flashbacks to Hope and Jamie's life. We see how they met, fell in love, married and had a child and you fall in love them as a family. But for me I cannot forgive Jamie for the start of the book, at his works night out I was screaming at her to leave him there and again later just to punch him. Maybe it's the way Beth intended but I didn't like him and nothing he did that I read about the life together in the past changed my opinion of him. I wanted someone to shake him and for Hope to stand up for herself more, maybe I've been reading too many books with strong woman but for me the characters just fell flat. I still loved the story and will continue to read Beth's books.

2.0 out of 5 stars With all the 5 stars, I expected something different... 25 April 2014
By thirty-five - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I expected for Hope to be working on healing from both the death of her son and some mistakes her husband made. What I got was Hope's endless musings on how much she loves her husband and hope that they could fix their marriage (got very annoying). You heard more about that than about her son. Nick was a good character, however, it felt as if something was missing from his development. Actually, they were all under developed a bit.

I wanted a journey that shows how she was able to deal with her grief and find forgiveness for herself, and maybe even her husband. (he was not there for her at all) What it seemed to be was she left her home, not to fix herself, but to push her husband into changing. Yes, he was hurting, and yes his mistakes aren't uncommon...but they were minimized to make it easier for her to deal. She didn't really deal with his mistakes at all. Maybe the author didn't intend that, but I felt as if I were "reading" and not a part of their story. I also figured out the sort of twist when the author first started hinting at it, and I think it's a cop out. It got quite weird towards the end considering that there wasn't a significant amount of time that they were separated.

I wanted real growth, instead I received real surface, and no true resolution.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish it were better! 8 May 2014
By Sonya D Hooten - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a hard story for me to write about. It was very emotional and tore at my heart. However, I could not get into Jamie's character at all. I understand that he is going through a terrible time in his life but if he truly loved Hope why did he disconnect from her? She not only had the loss of their son to deal with she also had the guilt of being the one there when the tragedy took place. I saw early on where this was going with Hope and Nick. It felt like watching a train wreck and not being able to do one thing about it. I wish I could say that I enjoyed this story more, but my feelings that Jamie could not be trusted to weather any storm, to stand by Hope and with her through anything that came their way for the rest of their lives was destroyed.
5.0 out of 5 stars Have the tissure ready 30 May 2015

I cried in this book. Hope and Jamie's marriage is falling apart. The death of their son has been something these two are dealing with. Jamie is not really having anything to do with Hope. He is at the point of having an affair. Hope moves back home with her mother. Her best friend from school comes back into her life just when she need him the most. But Nick has his own demons to face. As these two find their groove in their friendship. Jamie is also trying to heal. I cried more than once in this book. I loved this book and could no put it down. My first read by this author and will be reading more of her books
5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars! Absolutely heart wrenchingly beautiful! 18 Oct. 2015
By Heather A - Published on Amazon.com

When I sat down to start this review, I was thinking back to how I found this book and how glad I was I did. I could not remember how I came across it though. I went to Amazon and it turned out I grabbed it when it was free. This is why I love authors having promotions like that! I might never have come across Beth Rinyu had she not had this book for free. Now I am a huge fan and want to read all of her books.

A Cry For Hope is one of those book that I loved with all my heart and hated at the same time because it tore every last emotion from me.

We have Hope who is struggling with her son’s death while her husband is moving farther and farther away from her. I can’t imagine the heartbreak, though Beth did an amazing job reaching through the pages and wrenching those tears from me.

Nick, Jamie, Nick, Jamie… who was I supposed to be hoping for here? I loved Nick, yet he was so broken too. I was angry with Jamie for a good part of the story. We’d get these beautiful moments in the past and then we’d get the present where he wasn’t Prince Charming any more.

I can’t go into more detail without spoiling the book for everyone, but man..I’ll say it again, this was a heartbreaking, emotion wrecking, tears inducing kind of read. Though there is a companion novel out now, this is a standalone and you have the whole story right there in front of you.

Amazing book, it was the kind that left me pondering it for days after, questioning life, comparing how I would react compared to the characters in the book. Five stars. Absolutely Beautiful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to read, but worth every minute! 1 April 2014
By amy queau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Nothing about this book was easy.

I had a stomachache from the first chapter, and it didn’t subside until the epilogue. A Cry for Hope is about a couple who’s lost their child to a horrible drowning accident and who have to take time away from each other to figure out whether or not they’re going to stay together.

This book was written so well that all the assumptions I’d made by the third chapter had been proven wrong before I got to the ending. Nothing about this book was predictable, and I think that’s one of the biggest reasons I was caught so off guard with some of the twists.
This was a different book than I’m used to reading from Rinyu. Although her style is still the same, this subject matter was really heavy (though to be honest, I haven’t read some of her earlier stuff, which I’ve heard is just as intense). Up until now, my favorite of hers was An Unplanned Lesson, but that’s changed after reading A Cry for Hope!

The flashback chapters were brilliantly done, with each memory of her past directly correlating to the present chapters in between. I was never bored, and I was never confused. It was truly a story that will stay in my mind and heart forever. You can’t read a story like this and expect it to not stick with you. These characters are too wonderful for that.

I knew this was going to be a difficult one to read, so I put off reading it until I knew my heart could handle it. I read a few romantic comedies before diving into this one to prepare myself for the days of sadness. And although the majority of this book was heart-wrenching, I can’t help but love the message: You have to fight for your happiness, for the ones that you love, and for your future, because you can’t change the past. You can only live for the present.

I'm looking forward to A Will to Change!
