Book Review of 'Renewed Hope' by Carmen Peone

Happy Monday Bookworms!

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend.  Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me with your condolences for the loss of our family pet.  It has meant the world to me and helped make this difficult time a bit easier.  Pets have a way of touching your life like no other and I appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers as our family navigates a new normal.

The book I am reviewing today was a novel I was reading when my dog first got sick, and while it was a bit triggering it was also an amazing escape that I can't wait to tell you about.  So, I hope you enjoy my review today and don't forget to scroll to the bottom for the amazing giveaway from JustRead Tours!

My Review

A powerful read that truly has it all, Renewed Hope is the third novel in the Seven Tines Ranch series and when I say that this series continues to get better and better I mean it!

I’m not going to sugarcoat it, this novel can be tough to read at times, especially if you have had any type of abuse in your life, but even if you haven’t it still hits hard.  The emotions are so raw and real that I found myself having to close the book and take a breather while I silently prayed for Sophie and her situation.  I remember that feeling of helplessness so vividly when I was going through my own tumultuous situation and the author was able to capture those emotions so distinctly.

I love seeing Native American women have a voice in this series so much, as they are often marginalized, their cries disappearing like a whisper in the wind.  I come from a long line of strong, native women and appreciate the author’s pen giving hope to the hopeless and reminding us all that true love goes far beyond the words we speak but to the very depths of our soul, and that love and pain do not belong together.  My prayer today is for all of those that are abused, whether past or present, and no matter what way.  We need to lift one another up in prayer and give hope to the hopeless and faith to the faithless.  

Though this is a very tough subject matter this is worth the read.  Sophie is such an incredibly strong woman that I admired so much.  How she was able to go through what she went through and come out on the other side is remarkable.  Chad is incredible and reminded me so much of how my husband was when I was going through my ordeal, a beacon of light in the darkness.

This series continues to impact me on such a visceral level, and I continue to give it my highest praise.

My Rating: ★★★★★
