Description

About the Book:

Stories of Hope is a collection of short stories. Each tale narrates the journey of a thin red line of hope that fights through adversity. Right from the heart of Nazi Germany in the thick of the holocaust to the collapse of the regime in Egypt in 2011, from the story of hunger in the core of Africa to the tale of Palestine's recognition as a state, there are stories that celebrate the resilience of the Human Spirit. From stories of a mother turned out of her house by her son, to a mother who loses her newborn, to the young wife who must face a baffling truth, and the little girls who face adversities tied to their identity, these are stories that can be anyone's narrative. Stories of Hope is a celebration of Hope and a celebration of the undying human spirit of resilience.

I love everything from the cover to each story in the tale. I was gifted a copy day before and I just loved every story. In some parts it seemed a little dark, but the way the author revealed hope is amazing. Kirthi Jayakumar's book is simply splendid and I will recommend it to EVERYONE!

I was gifted a copy of Stories of Hope and initially had no intention of reading it because it is by a new author - but I overcame my prejudice and began reading it. I couldn't stop! Each short story is riveting and I really like the social activism angle that the author has taken. Each story has rich characters and the book leaves you understanding the title very profoundly. It may seem like there are painful stories, but the message of Hope in each of them is powerful. One of the most unexpected stories is Flowers for Frank Andromanque, and the subtle message of Hope even after one's passing is a very interesting one.
