Blind Hope by Kim Meeder 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; she began to realize that the dog was rescuing her.
     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, 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. Laurie experienced a greater love than she had ever known.
      Blind Hope is not what I expected, but better than expected. I love stories about pets that in the end teach you about the love of God. This story of a mangy, abused blind dog who transformed a young woman's life and led her to understand God's love.

           A very touching story about faith, love and hope. This is a good read. An abused and homely dog brings so much joy and happiness to his new owner. Laurie understands her own life so much better because of things she learns through her dog and his handicaps.

    I enjoyed reading it on a pleasant afternoon and would recommend this special story to all pet lovers and anyone who enjoys a good story about how animals teach humans.

I received this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing in their blogging for books program for my review.
