BLIND HOPE blog tour *Book review and giveaway*


Blind Hope by Kim Meeder and Laurie Sacher

An unwanted dog. An emotional rescue.
Two lives forever changed.
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.

“Love is a bridge that stands firm through difficulties and connects one heart directly to another, not because of how it looks, but because of what it is.”    --Kim Meeder, Blind Hope



My Review

This is a story about Laurie, she adopts a dog that she has never met. When she shows up to get the dog (Mia) it is nothing like she expected. Although the dog is really thin and has horrible breath and smells terrible Laurie decides to keep her. Laurie has always felt broken just like Mia.
Laurie thinks she has rescued Mia who has many health problems but in reality Mia is rescuing Laurie.Mia shows Laurie unconditional love the way God loves us.

I loved this book and shed many tears while reading it, I recommend it to everyone.
