Title: Hannah's Hope Author: Karen Kingsbury Published: 10-18-05 Publisher: FaithWords/Center Street Pages: 162 Genre: Christian Fiction Sub Genre: Contemporary Fiction; Inspirational ISBN: 9780446537365 ASIN: B00XU7R8G Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley . It's the Christmas season and Hannah is counting the days until her parents come home for the holidays. A fifteen year old girl who appears to have it all family connections, wealth and friends. That is until you look closer and you see a girl who feels there is something so wrong with her no can love her. With her cold and distant Grandmother, and parents who have followed their ambitions at the cost of their relationship with their daughter. When her parents let her know they are both too busy to come home for Christmas. Then her other tells her something that shakes the foundation of her very life. She finds out the man the man who she has always believed to be her father was not her biological father. Hannah begins searching her father Air Force Pilot Mike Conner, whom she thought was only part of her early childhood imagination. When word gets out soon the entire state is helping her search for him in hopes that she gets her wish to find him in time for Christmas. Mike hears Hannah's televised plea and must decide to open himself to more pain if Hannah rejects him or ignore her plea. Will Hannah finally find someone to love her? Will she get her Christmas wish? Every story in the Red Gloves Series is beautifully written and inspirational as it covers some very painful situations and emotions. Mrs. Kingsbury uses her talents to give us a book that is well thought out and sure to touch the hearts of its readers. The characters are well developed and their actions are very believable. You want them to receive their Christmas wishes. Always there is the sub-story of God's love for us all and His strength to carry us when life becomes too much for us to walk without Him. As Always I have enjoyed the memories of earlier readings and hope that the others who read Hannah's Hope are left with the feelings of peace and enjoyment that I receive each time I read the Red Glove series.

I thought Hannah's Hope is a great and sweet short Christmas story. It definitely can be ready anytime of the year. The story is the fourth installment of the Red Glove series and my favorite. Recommended.  5 stars.

I can't imagine a more challenging Christmas than the one 15-year-old Hannah Robertson is finding herself facing. Managing a full schedule as a freshman in high school would be difficult enough, but her parents are beyond busy serving as the ambassadors in Sweden. The one thing Hannah has been able to count on is that her parents have always managed to be home for Christmas. Even though most of the time, they are busy with political meetings and dinner plans, it was still nice to be able to spend time with them. But this is not what is going to happen this year. The email response from her mother was simply that they could not find the time to make it home this year. They hope she understands. Hannah's response? "Fine, Mother. How completely understandable that my parents would choose parties in Sweden over Christmas with me. Love you, too." When her mother received Hannah's email response she found herself feeling a bit guilty believing that Hannah had come to accept the busyness of how involved they were in Sweden and had hoped she might be relived not to have to attend all those parties and gathering if her parents had come home. Guess not after all. The one thing her mother believed might just help was if she finally came clean with the truth about Hannah's real father. That her biological father was not the man she married, but the man she left when Hannah was four. She had hoped to tell her when she turned eighteen, but now might be the perfect time to tell her. So she packaged up a few photos of Mike Connor, Hannah's real father, a pair of pilot wings and shipped off a letter she had hoped would explain her decision to walk away from him 11 years ago. To Hannah, realizing that Jack was not her real father explained how he acted around her and filled in all the missing holes in Hannah's heart. She dreamed of the man who had read to her, played with her and one she fondly loved and now she had to find a way to find him against all odds based on what little information she had. The man she was looking for was serving in Iraq and had been searching for her all his life. Now all they needed was the perfect Christmas miracle. I received Hannah's Hope by Karen Kingsbury as a free copy for my honest review compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. I've been a huge fan of Karen Kingsbury's novels since my very first one. She gets right to the heart of the reader's emotions and inspires such a feeling of hope and love, you find yourself smiling as you finish each book. It makes you want to be a better person and inside changes your heart. Included in this book at the conclusion are a list of projects you can involve yourself with to help our service men and women serving our country this Christmas which evokes the meaning behind this series of books. This is the fourth book in the Red Glove Series and can be read in any order or as a stand alone. What a perfect gift to give someone this year for Christmas and one I rate a perfect 5 out of 5 stars.

While her parents reside in Sweden as her father is the ambassador there, fifteen years old Hannah Roberts lives with a cold grandmother in the DC area while wondering why no one loves her. She looks forward to her parents coming home for the holidays, but that dream is shattered when she receives an email from them informing her that they are too busy to see her. A depressed Hannah sadly prays for a 'Christmas Miracle'. --- Her mother realizes that Hannah is unhappy so she decides to tell her daughter the truth about her biological father, Mike Connor. Hannah now knows her dreams of having fun when she was a child with a loving nurturing adult male were more than just a wish. She searches for her dad, but comes up empty until he hears her plea on TV. Mike tries to make contact before undergoing a dangerous mission in Iraq. When she learns her dad¿s mission turned deadly and dangerous, she focuses on the hope that her 'Christmas Miracle' will come true. --- The fourth Red Gloves tale is an intriguing inspirational in which the young heroine cannot understand why she is neglected by her parents who are busy playing diplomat. Though she handles the shock that her mom¿s husband Jack is not her biological father rather easily, fans will feel Hannah¿s angst and needs and have some of their own as they wonder in spite of expecting the obvious that we know deep down will happen, whether a miracle will occur as the heroine hopes. That is the ability of Karen Kingsbury as she keeps her fans enthralled with the idea of will or will not a miracle occur while lifting the spirits of her readers. --- Harriet Klausner
