With the discovery of her birth father, 12-year-old River has definite thoughts about how her life should turn outand that certainly does not include any of the challenges that keep popping up!
It's not easy to decide if she should live with Gram, who has been her family for the past ten years, or with her father, who she's over-the-moon to have just met but knows little about. And when River is diagnosed with a condition that could impact her hopes and dreams and future, she feels overwhelmed and bewildered. That's when River asks God for help and decides to trust him with her dreams.
As this tender-sweet story unfolds, River learns to persevere and stay hopeful that soon she will be part of a real family. Yes, her dream does come true...but not in the way she had planned!
Wendy Dunham is the author of My Name Is River and a registered therapist who works with children with special needs. Her desire is to honor her Creator with whatever it is she's writing about. Whether it's a poem, an article, a devotional, or a novel, her goal is to share hope, encouragement, and unconditional lovethings we can all use a little bit more of.
"As a writer I recognize the value of good literature...especially literature for children. Wendy Dunham's, Hope Girl, is a middle grade novel that can be enjoyed by adults as well."
