Reader reviewed by Hope.

I'm not even sure about where to begin about this book. It was wonderful, marvelous, excellent, outstanding, plus any more of these kinds of words you can think of. I've never read a book quite like this one: it explores many ideas, with the abuse being the major part of it, and the racism close behind it. When I was reading the back of the book when I received it, I was wondered whether this book would be any good, because it deals with all those areas that are listed. It turned out wonderfully. Beth Fehlbaum uses just the right amount of each of the issues and makes a wonderful book.


This book had me hooked from the first chapter. Beth's writing is really easy to read and it didn't seem forced at all. It is 347 pages of wonderful-ness that will make you not want to put the book down once while you're reading it.


This story really is a story of hope - for all people. Even if you have not been abused or suffered from racism, there are things you will be able to relate to - no matter who you are or where you live.


When you're at the bookstore or the library and see Courage in Patience, make sure to pick it up. It is an amazing story that will have you laughing out loud at some parts, crying at others, and will make you really think about things.
