Here are some great reviews I’ve received for my novella, Resurrection of Hope.
“The message of hope for two wounded people is beautifully told in this novella set in post WWI Ohio. Vivian and Henry both have pasts that causes them to pull back from intimacy. For Henry this extends to everyone, not just his wife. Flawed as these characters are, they keep trying to trust God and listen for his direction. But just as they are about to give up on each other, tragedy hits and they finally hear God’s voice. An uplifting story that I highly recommend.” — Cindy Thomson
“What a beautiful tale of two souls’ struggles to truly unite as one. Kraft did an awesome job of creating characters that are real and reader-sympathetic. I could see myself on the sidelines watching the action going on in this book.
When Vivian almost makes a decision that could have taken her to the point of no return, a faint hope appears in the form of Henry, a friend from the past, who proposes a bland solution: marry him in name only. He has a housekeeper, and she’ll be secure financially. Even without love? What is a lady to do who has no future, no hope of happiness shining on her horizon, but a nagging, insinuating, persistent hotel boss who also wants to marry her?
She makes her choice, and so begins the true courtship of Vivian Klein and Henry Bauer. The journey these two young people travel in their quest for true happiness is filled with anguish and trials with some sweet and touching scenes written in. Can they really come to love each other the way they should?
I highly recommend this novel to those who love historical romance. Kraft doesn’t disappoint, and you won’t be disappointed either by reading it.” — Carole Brown
“Vivian is so distraught with her life that she plans to end it all. Henry Bauer is back from the war, and searches for Vivian. Her fiance, James, was killed in the war and Henry has promised James to take care of Vivian, if anything happens to him.
Henry and Vivian agree to marry and their life begins with learning how to get along and deal with the differences in their personalities.
A weather event causes Henry to pause and think about accepting help from others. He and Vivian need help.
This is a story of losing love, finding love, forgiveness and trusting in others and trusting God. A beautiful story of resurrection.” — Melissa Henderson
