Hope on the Inside by Marie Bostwick

Hope on the Inside

“Whatever comes your way, find happiness in it.”

Hope Carpenter and her husband, Rick, are at a crossroads. Hope has raised their four children and is going back to teaching. They are where they want to be.

In the blink of an eye, they are suddenly out of jobs and the financial and emotional stress is affecting them both. Selling their home and moving closer to their only daughter along with Rick’s severance package has given them a bit of financial security but they both are feeling unsteady and afraid, which leads to quite a bit of tension.

Hope is determined to find a job and contribute financially and feel useful. She didn’t think that the job would be teaching female inmates in prison. After some initial trepidation, she finds herself loving the job and the young women.

Hope finds that teaching these young women to quilt will have a dramatic effect. They are learning to be normal. To think, plan, pour their hearts into something they can feel ownership over and pride in themselves.

This one has all of the feels in it. I laughed, I cried, I was indignant!  Bostwick always gives us such beautiful stories. I always learn something I needed to learn.

Very Well Done!
