About the book : 

We’re all a little broken, and that’s okay.

Or is it? Rick has a medical condition that makes his life different form the rest. But unlike others around him, he sees this not as a curse, but as an opportunity to cherish life and all the bitter-sweet gifts it brings with it.

Amidst frequent visits to the doctor, multiple surgeries that risk his very being, and a life that meant surveillance all the time, Rick has to fight for himself each day. But he pulls through, thanks to his family and friend Jacob, who become his pillars of strength.

And then, at a time when he is least expecting it, and with someone he meets by accident – love happens. It’s a new feeling for his heart and he is scared to lose it.

Will Lisa really understand the goodness of his heart or just walk away?
Inside the Heart of Hope is a story of strong will, perseverance and optimism which will make you wonder if sky is really the limit.

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. 

Verdict : Impactful

In spite of their contrasting personas, two people gets conjoined and manifests that true love stories never have finales; and a women’s fingers flings away from the keypad at the very instant of reading a startling news. A man founds himself standing in silence amidst of talks, unable to react to love of his life. A couple never praises each other until someday; and a guy always prefers to look up at the sky and think enormously about his darling’s life and death. 
There are some of the sorrowful and amiable poetries and thought provoking stories.
