Emily's Hope is the gripping story of one young woman's physical, emotional, spiritual journey from high school to adulthood. Interspersed throughout the story are flashbacks to Emily's great-grandmother's troubled life, with a climax culminating in the surprising revelation that Emily and her great-grandmother are connected more deeply than by ancestral ties alone. Based on a true story.
"I would encourage everyone to read this book, certainly young women." David Beresford --Catholic Insight Magazine
"While this book is definitely about Natural Family Planning, it is also about the love of husbands and wives, the love of parents for their children and the agonizing moral choices we sometimes face. It is also about real people...and about being witnesses to a culture of life in a world overshadowed by the culture of death." Kristie Wellman --One More Soul Magazine
"There is so much to love about Emily's Hope: the innocence of young love, the beautiful, miraculous, healing power of love and the beauty of sacrificial married love and its life-giving splendor. This story is not a fantasy, but is a tender and sensitive portrayal of what makes love real and lasting." Jean M. Heimann --Catholic Fire
