ABOUT THE BOOK

Hope Beyond the Waves

Title: Hope Beyond the Waves 
Author: Heidi Chiavaroli
Publisher: Hope Creek Publishers, LLC
Release Date: June 28, 2022
Genre: Christian, Dual Timeline Fiction

From award-winning author Heidi Chiavaroli comes a sweeping dual timeline story that explores hope and enduring love in the midst of the impossible. 

Massachusetts, 1993 

After making a grievous mistake that will change her life forever, Emily Robertson is sent away to live with her grandmother on Cape Cod. When Emily finds a timeworn photograph buried in a drawer, she realizes her grandmother has concealed a secret even bigger than her own. Will convincing Gram to reveal their family history help Emily make the most important decision of her life or will it prove her parents right—that family scandal is better off buried and forgotten? 

Massachusetts, 1916 

Atta Schaeffer plans to marry the man of her dreams and whisk her little sister away from their abusive father. But when she is diagnosed with a dreaded malady, Atta is forced into a life of exile, leaving her sister in harm’s way. 

On Penikese Island, Atta’s best hope lies with Harry Mayhew, a doctor who seeks a cure for his patients at any cost. But when experiments fail, Atta runs from Harry—and from God. Can she return to her sister before it’s too late? Or will her illness consume both her body and soul? 

A testament to faith and love, Hope Beyond the Waves is the raw account of the journey of two generations of women running from desperate situations toward irresistible hope.

MY REVIEW

Hope Beyond the Waves is a time slip novel written in two different times; 1916 and 1993. The early 1916 historical details concern a leper colony existing on Pinikese Island and follows the life of Atta and her sister, Gertie.

The storyline between the time periods is seamless. The characters from each time period are connected and create a lot of mystery, tension, and uncertainty and grip your heart filling you with compassion. It is one of the best historical reads I've read this year. A lot of twists and unexpected circumstances grip your heart and won't let go. The love of God and his power through Jesus ' sacrifice for each one of us, shines through each character in HIS own perfect way.

I felt a closeness to Jesus just reading the authors story of forgiveness, redemption, and a powerful love of healing beyond all explanations. I couldn't put it down. Keep the tissues handy, words of praise on your lips, and your heart open to God's word. This is one spectacular read and will fill you with hope.

I received a complimentary copy from the author and voluntarily choose to review it.
