Book Review :
The story is about the journey of the main protagonist of the book, Rick who suffers from a heart disorder since his childhood and how the ups and downs has shaped his life. In Spite of the fact that he failed in having a normal life and missed out on most of the funs of his growing up years, Rick never abandoned his hope. Not even after being betrayed by his girl friend, Amy. The struggle was there but his hope was just as firm. And as they say, All’s well that ends well, After meeting a series of turbulence in his life and fighting the demons, Rick did manage to balance things out for himself after he met Lisa, who loved him unconditionally accepting the truth about his medical condition.
The best part of the story was his friendship with Jacob and the letter which he wrote for his daughter. The portrayal of love was soulful and relateable.
Inside the heart of hope is a simple yet a meaningful story about love, hope, faith and relationships. The book in itself is an inspiration and an eye-opener for those who gives up too soon. Where there is hope, there is life and this book certainly explains it well.
Rishabh Puri is a talented writer and the book speaks about his narration and writing skills. Each of the characters whether negative or positive was sketched well and blended with the plot just perfectly making the story move smoothly.
Overall, the book is worth reading and it will keep you engaged till you reach the end and after reading it you will be in a blissful mood because it ends in a very beautiful way bringing a smile of joy and contentment on your face and teaching you a thing or two more about hope.
