Chasing Hope

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.

This is book #6 in the Tomorrow's Promise Collection, I have not read any of the previous books.  Definitely a stand-alone story.

This book is real, it is full of emotion, emotions that are quite real to most people so you will find yourself quickly connecting with the characters in this story.  How many times have things in your life turned out differently than you thought they would?  Well, Sabrina has had that happen and although she deals with her pain on a daily basis, she hasn't fully come to terms with it.  Brandy drives Sabrina crazy, but yet, Sabrina helps her and they have an amazing journey of healing...together!

This was a great read with a different story line than so many of the books out there.
