    A beautifully written novel of love. Excellent!

    A beautifully written novel of love, hope, fear and heartbreak. "No parent should ever have to give up on their child, not when there still might be some hope left, no matter how small. No matter how slight." Rachel will never let Emily go! There has to be something that can be done to help her little girl get better. Rachel gives up her job, her friends and even her marriage in an attempt to find treatments and to continue to advocate for Emily every single day through the years. What she finds when her heart opens- is love and friendship in the most unlikely person. This is an amazing journey and I promise you will need tissues close by while consuming the pages in this story.

    Loved this emotional read.

    When I pick up a book by Kate Hewitt, I make sure to grab a box of tissues along with it. This doesn't stop me from getting my hands on the book when it becomes available. Rachel was the happiest of mothers, although her marriage left a lot to be desired and eventually ended. One endearing thing that Rachel has been doing is writing her daughter letters even before she was born. Things go well for several years, but suddenly Emily is faced with an autoimmune illness. Symptoms go from bad to worse when she ends up in a coma. Unfortunately Emily's disease is quite rare and doctors simply do not have any answers or hope. Although Rachel and ex, James, have been apart for a while, and he has even remarried, they are united when it comes to Emily. That is, until Rachel finds what she think might help, and possibly cure Emily. This is when their unity comes to an end and James says no. Rachel appeals to his wife, Eva for help. What transpires from here - if the story wasn't already heartbreaking - is a journey of sadness coupled with an unlikely friendship. I was right about those tissues as I was truly gutted. Nonetheless, I found this to be a compelling read that made me think - and made me thankful for the blessings I have in my family. Kate Hewitt has done it again, and I cannot wait for her next book.

    Broke My Heart

    This book was so heart wrenching. As a mother whose child was very ill, when he was small, this book gave me all the feels. (Thank goodness my boy is a full grown, healthy adult now!) This story just grips you right from the start. I had a really hard time putting it down and found myself reading well into the night. I was so into the plot and the characters I found myself wanting to strangle James, cry for Emily and rejoice for Eva...and poor Rachael, I felt for her the most. Kate Hewitt never stops amazing me. I first fell in love with Hewitt’s writing style with her book, This Fragile Life, and the gift she has of pulling you into a deep emotional story that will pull on your heartstrings. It is such a tall order when a synopsis boasts a story perfect for fans by such well known authors as Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain and I must say Kate Hewitt really lives up to the hype set forth in the synopsis. Hewitt writes with such raw emotion and realism that will leave you in tears. Yes, I did cry because A Hope For Emily is such a tender, thought provoking and emotional look into family, relationships and what it means to be a mother.

    This story is filled with love and so heartbreaking. It’s every parents worst fear. Make sure you have a box of tissues ready for your tears. Kate Hewitt has done an amazing job making you feel like you are right there in the story.
