    The Color Hope by Kim Cash Tate is a continuation from another b

    The Color Hope by Kim Cash Tate is a continuation from another book titled Hope Springs.

    I really enjoy reading books of this nature that discuss the trials of the color barrier. The hardship that the characters face in the book remind me that my hardships are not always so bad. They also remind me to be thoughtful of those around me and to judge less and seek The Lord and His ways more than my own.

    This book has many characters, it is a blending of one large family and two churches, one white and one black. The pastors of both churches e very young and have some great ideas for getting the community to be more conducive to each other and to "blend" so to speak. However, the elders (more so the white church than the black church) have a difficult time dealing with this.

    There are other issues that Tate addresses in this book. Hatred for mix races, popularity and the unpopular, dating one of a different race, and just everyday issues that we all face in life.

    Tate does a remarkable job of blending it all together and creating a solid yet enjoyable read.

    Kim Cash Tate did it again! The Color of Hope should be read by

    Kim Cash Tate did it again! The Color of Hope should be read by all. In this book, Tate does a remarkable job of bringing us up to speed on the happenings in Hope Springs. Going straight to the heart of the matter, readers are able to read about a number of hard-hitting issues. I love that the book begins and ends with a strong emphasis on family, faith, and forgiveness.

    Life challenges, injustices, choices, redemption, and love wrapped up in grace – it’s all in The Color of Hope.

    Kim Cash Tate writes with soul and power, and her newest novel i

    Kim Cash Tate writes with soul and power, and her newest novel is by far her most emotional novel to date. Old favorite friends are back and new characters are introduced and, before the final page turns, your life will be turned upside down.

    Stephanie first appeared in "Cherished" as the self absorbed little sister, about to be married to her fiance, Lindell London. My, how she has changed! Now she's moving back to her roots in Hope Springs, hoping to make a difference with her life.

    Family ties are strong, and a bit complicated (thank you, Kim, for the family tree in the beginning of the book!). Janelle is moving forward after the death of her husband, while Charlotte seems stuck in place. Should she move on, or should she accept the new position at the high school and explore new love interests?

    Libby is still running from God and from Travis. She can avoid the one, but she'll never avoid the One...a truth that comes home to her in an unexpected way on an unexpected journey.

    So much takes place within the pages of "The Color of Hope". But it's the latter half of the book that had me in tears. I got so angry...so frustrated...was so wounded by those events. Let's just say that racism is a cancer that has to be eradicated by the love of Jesus.

    It has to be done and gone.

    But until Jesus changes hearts, old wounds fester and old prejudices get passed down until innocent people get hurt in unspeakable ways. And bullying? It has got to end as well.

    Don't hide behind the anonymity of the Internet and claim you don't know what you're doing and who you are hurting. Don't take the cowardly route and stick your head in the sand. And don't feed us the line any longer, that 'boys will be boys' and 'girls don't mean anything by it'.

    I encourage you...I'm pleading with you...pick up "The Color of Hope" and let it anger and engage you in a new way. There is true power in story, and Kim has harnessed that power and this book will do amazing things if we'll just read it and then act on it.

    I purchased a copy for myself. I've been a fan of Kim's writing since "Cherished" was introduced as a 'Woman of Faith' novel selection, and I've been along for the ride ever since.

    "The Color of Hope" is highly, highly, highly recommended. Go get a copy and find out just what "The Color of Hope" is...I know you'll be entertained. But you just might be changed as well.
