#BookReview :: Inside the Heart of Hope by Rishabh Puri

We’re all a little broken, and that’s okay.
Or is it? Rick has a medical condition that makes his life different from 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 life 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?

I first thought that this would be an end to end romance novel. But it proved me wrong.

Inside the Heart of Hope is the story of Rick who has a heart condition that has lead him to multiple surgeries. To people around him he is someone who has to live with a disease, but to him the chance at a life is a chance to cherish it. He has not had a chance at a normal life for the longest time, but he snatches his moments when and where he can. It goes without saying that his life hasn’t been the easiest, what with someone special walking out on him because of the disease. But he keeps on holding on to hope and does not stop living his life to his best abilities. 

There is romance, yes. But the book also has a healthy dose of inspiration and motivation. Through a physically flawed character the author shows us the importance of holding on to hope. Through Rick, the author inspires us to live our lives to the fullest. Through a person with struggles that he has no control over, the author motivates us to chase our dreams. 

The various character in the book each play their parts distinctively adding to Rick’s experiences and to the story as a whole. I guess, beside Rick, the one other character that stood out was that of Jacob. The story flows well and the pace is perfect. It is a pretty quick read. My only cribbing point about the book is the language. Though it is better than some IWE books I have read in recent time, it still needs a bit of polishing. Small issues like certain sentences left off abruptly.

Overall, this book made for an interesting afternoon read.
