About the book:

Laurie's dreams had been shattered before she came to work at Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch—the ranch of rescued dreams—where broken horses and broken children encounter healing every day. In an attempt to soothe her aching soul, Laurie reached out to save a dog in need. And she soon began to realize that the dog was rescuing her.

An inspiring true story told through the engaging voice of Kim Meeder, Blind Hope reveals poignant life lessons Laurie experienced from her ailing, yet courageous canine friend. Despite the blindness of her dog—and her own heart—Laurie uncovered what she really needed most: authentic love, unconditional trust, and true acceptance, faults and all.

As Laurie and her dog, Mia, both learned to follow the lead of a master they couldn’t see, Laurie discovered the transforming power of God’s grace even for imperfect and selfish people—and she experienced a greater love than she had ever known.

My thoughts:

Blind Hope was a different type of book than I normally read. While I love Christian fiction, this was a little more christian than I had intended. It was a very inspirational book. I do have to admit that I did learn from reading this book about hope.

I loved how Laurie and Mia had so many things in common and how Laurie learned how to see things differently through Mia and how Mia learned to see things through Laurie. This is an emotional book for those of us who at times feel lost and it did hit home and times and at times I had to put the book down and think and put things in prospective in with my life.

I do think that this book is a wonderful read for those that need a lifting and for those who struggle with feeling lost or unloved.

It touched my heart how Laurie took Mia in even with all her appearance issues and oh, the bad breath. Love is such a strong thing that overlooks so much.

This book definitely touched my heart, it just was not what I expected to be reading.
