From My Blog...[return][return]A story of unconditional love and faith, Blind Hope by Kim Meeder and Laurie Sacher is about how an unwanted dog was able to change Laurie’s life. When Laurie first arrived at Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch she was a broken woman, yet appeared to have it all while inside she was close to empty, imprisoned by her obsession with food and her false belief that thinner equals happy, just one of the societal beliefs that guided Laurie in the beginning. As she began to volunteer at the ranch, she decides to rescue a dog, however the dog in her mind’s eye was nothing like the dog she bought sight unseen. Laurie is determined to do the right thing and give the underweight, smelly and ugly dog a good home. Little does she know that it will be the dog, which she renames Mia that will save her. Blind Hope is a beautiful book told as if one is listening in on conversations between Laurie and Kim, which is filled with raw honesty that will make the reader smile, nod in agreement, and tear up a few times. While the book is short, the messages are powerful. While the book is quite faith centered, the message of loving unconditionally, being true to oneself, learning self-respect and dignity, being humble and loving are issues many can relate with whether one believes in God or not. Blind Hope is an inspirational book of the healing power of an unwanted dog and the lessons learned about unconditional love, a concept that appears to be lost in today’s faced-paced, me-centered society. Mia, a blind and abandoned dog, has a lot to offer and I would recommend Blind Hope to any reader regardless of religious beliefs.
