I am always interested in reading memoir type books, and that is why I chose to read and review this one.
Hope Runs tells the story of a girl who loves to travel, and takes a trip to Kenya that ends up lasting longer than she had planned. Claire stays to help out at an orphanage, and finds herself feeling a parental sort of love for one of the little boys living there. This book shares their story through the perspectives of both Claire and Sammy.
Who the book is for:
Those who enjoy memoirs. Those whose lives have been touched by an orphan.
What I liked:
This book opens your eyes to another culture.
This book is written in first person, something that I find unique for a memoir type of book.
What I didn’t like:
Most of the chapters were a little long for me.
Parts of the book were boring and hard to read.
Overall, this was a decent read, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I had thought that I would.
I give Hope Runs 3 out of 5 stars.
