Book review: “Hope Happens”
Best-selling author Catherine DeVrye has created a special book of pocket wisdom to help brighten even your darkest day. And Catherine would know all about those. From her early life in a Canadian orphanage, to the death of her adoptive parents when she was 21 to facing her biggest battle (and winning!) cancer; life has certainly dealt her an unenviable hand at times.
Catherine’s determination is nothing less than inspirational. An international best-selling author, she’s also cycled over the Andes mountain range and climbed 20,000 feet to the summit of Mount Kiliminjaro. It is this inspiration that fills every page of Hope Happens!, with Catherine’s hand-picked potpourri of uplifting and inspiring quotes from freedom fighters, positive thinkers and humanitarians the world over. Helen Keller, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein and even Catherine’s own beloved Grandad’s words of encouragement are transposed over beautiful photographic image taken by Catherine herself on her travels around the world.
Hope Happens! is the perfect tonic for those coping with loss – be it loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, financial loss or simply losing your way in life. Hope Happens! embraces the idea of learning from the past, looking towards the future, but most importantly living for today. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go the Cancer Council of NSW.
