Chasing Hope By Kathryn Cushman GIVEAWAY!

A Personal Drama of Shattered Dreams and Second Chances

A talented runner fully committed to Olympic dreams, Sabrina Rice's future was shattered by a devastating diagnosis. One forfeited scholarship and several years later, she has new goals and dreams that have nothing to do with running--something that's become far too painful to think on.

Until the day she sees Brandy Philip running across the community college campus, easily outpacing security. Sabrina immediately recognizes world-class speed, and it's all the more painful that it belongs to a teenage graffiti artist. When a chance encounter brings the two young women together, Sabrina becomes Brandy's best hope for staying out of juvenile hall. Soon, Sabrina begins to feel an uncomfortable nudge that her new life is just about to be toppled...that God may be calling her to minister to this talented but troubled girl.

I will be posting about the above giveaway on Monday 9/16/13 be sure to come back Monday you do NOT want to miss this GIVEAWAY!
I fell in Love with Katie's books when I read her first fantastic book, A Promise to Remember back in 2007.  She does not write fast enough for me. I can't wait for her next book to come out!
Chasing Hope is just as good as that one. I love a book about God putting two unlikely people together, and blessing them both.
God help both Sabrina and Brandy fight their way through the wilderness and he never gave up on either one of them.
Chasing Hope has an ending that with make you sit back and smile so big everyone around you will be wondering what you just read.
This is a fast read that you can not put down once you start reading it.
I gave this book 5 stars two times. I HIGHLY recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
On a side note I have read all six of Katie's books and they are all five star books. You should check them all out! I have them all on my bookshelf that's just how good they are.
