Blind Hope- An Unwanted Dog & the Woman She Rescued~ Book Review

Meeder (Hope Rising) tells the story of an unwanted dog whose forlorn and broken heart and body called out to Meeder'sco-author, Sacher, and how, in their subsequent relationship, the dog became the agent of spiritual rescue to her owner. Together, Meeder and Sacher write about their own meeting and work at Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Oregon, where Sacher was moved to take ownership of a disabled pooch that she renamed Mia. In a completely disarming manner, Meeder relates a love story between Sacher and Mia as human and dog grew to trust one another one day, one bump, and one bruise at a time. Meeder parallels their human/canine relationship with the trust and love Sacher develops with God. With humorous and poignant asides, Meeder beautifully bridges the gap between the sad and silly, showing the lovely and forsaken aspects of the individual heart so powerfully that readers will be coaxed into revisiting their understanding of the rescue God readily offers to all.

Mia is such a sweet dog. This book has made me stop and take a second look at homeless animals in the hopes that many will be rescued, cared for and loved in a safe house with a lovely family to see them thru till the end of their days. Mia started out abused but was rescued by Laurie and proved to be a worthy dog for the rest of her sweet life. She showed Laurie how to open her heart to God and to except situations that you can not change.

My dogs are rescued from the shelters and are so trusting and excepting of us that it was good to read about another dog gaining trust and showing love to her owner.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
