  • Larry

    I read and loved her first book, My Story, so I picked this up as soon as it came out. It might even be better than the first book. She interviews other victims of tragedy or people who inspired her and asks them how they got through their personal hell or what makes their lives so worth living. The book is incredibly positive and hopeful. Its overall message is overwhelmingly motivating, that life is good, that terrible things can happen and that there can be hope and healing and goodness yet t ...more

    This was an AMAZING book! So many different perspectives with some great advice! Uplifting and encouraging! I would highly highly suggest this for everyone to read, regardless of your walk of life she has interviewed so many people with stories of encouragement! How these people have moved on and thrived after their own personal traumas. Many of the points I will definitely reflect on in times of trouble for myself! Great great book! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ...more

    Although I did not read Elizabeth Smart's first book, 'My Story,' I received a copy of "Where There's Hope," through a Goodreads giveaway. I don't always read books of this genre, so I was a little hesitant to pick it up. But now I admit, I appreciated much of what she shared, and thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's easy to read and easy to read a few chapters at a time and then ponder on how much attitude has to do with one's outlook on life.

    Through her interviews with a wide variety of individ

    I had two initial assumptions when I received an advanced reader's copy of this book: 1.) the author would be divulging intimate details of her kidnapping and 2.) the self-help message would be dominated by religion. The foreword quickly dispelled both of my assumptions.

    The purpose of the book is to discuss resilience, hope, and moving forward with respected individuals or people of importance in Elizabeth Smart's life. I didn't find any earth-shattering revelations or advice, but the general s

    What an uplifting book!! No matter what we go through as humans, this book goes to show us exactly how resilient we can choose to be. It's all about our choices splashed with forgiveness, endurance, our tribe that supports us, our faith, and so much more. The examples of others listed in this book will have you thinking, "wow, I didn't/don't have it so bad" in comparison. It definitely will put perspective on where you are in life, where you want to go, and are you living life to the fullest tod ...more

    I received this book as part of the Giveaway and am glad I had the opportunity to read it. It is a fast read but well written and has a good message. I appreciate that Ms. Smart did not force feed her audience religious accolades. Instead, she talks about her faith and at the same time is very respectful of others. I find this refreshing, especially in today's world. By interviewing people with varied backgrounds, lifestyles and faiths she has made this a book that should touch a wide audience.

  • Donna

    This is a difficult book for me to rate. This happened in my neck of the woods, so I feel emotionally tied to the whole story. I admire her strength and that of her parents.

    I like the idea behind this book. The author included some inspirational stories from different people who have suffered tragedy in their lives. There were some quotable quotes in this. It had an overall "feel good" feeling when it talked about strength, faith and forgiveness.

    However, overall, I'm just not sure this book (th

    "We all leave this earth. We all die, and we don't get to know what comes next. It takes a lot of courage just to live life."

    In "My Story", Elizabeth Smart put into words the account of her kidnapping and captivity. This book doesn't rehash that experience, other than a few paragraphs here and there. Mostly, this book is about how Elizabeth Smart was able to keep her faith and heal from the trauma she experienced. In each section, Elizabeth explores a different aspect of her faith and how her ex
