Hope Travels Through based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I was only a 4 months old when the University of Evansville Men's Basketball Team's plane crashed, but I remember hearing about as I got older. Hope Travels Through is based on actual events from that day December 13, 1977. Hope Travels Through is a fiction novel in the contemporary Lit genre, written by Loni Kemper Moore. I found this book to be a good read and one that I could relate to on certain issues. Many times have I decided to give up on God and just go about my life thinking things would be better. I couldn't hurt God anymore with the decisions I chose to make. That isn't true, I hurt God even more by giving up on Him. TeJae Smythe did the same thing, but amidst the pain and heartache, she knows where her heart is and whom she can trust. Turning back to God is the only options she has. Hope Travels Through is one book that I do recommend to those who are going through something similar. . I received a copy of this book for free, a favorable review was not required, I chose to write this review and all opinions expressed are my own.
Stepping back several decades, Loni Kemper Moore’s debut novel examines a simpler time when neighbors helped each other out and the hot ticket was the University’s basketball games. TeJae Smythe is a young woman who is make her way up the ranks as a flight attendant. Her annual trip home to Evansville, IN for Veteran’s Day reminds her of the brother she’s lost as well as the mother who can’t let go of him. As time passes, TeJae encounters attraction to someone, a loss she wasn’t expecting, and resentment from a relative. As TeJae’s world is turned upside, she must balance everything with her job in order to figure out what comes next. Hope Travels Through is TeJae’s journey through one of the hardest circumstances, yet it also shows readers how resentment and jealousy can harden hearts, how caring and compassion are balms to the hurting, and of a community standing together through tragedy. In the end, simpler times do not equal simpler lives. Disclosure statement: I receive complimentary books for review from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including NetGalley.
