About the Book

Searching for Hope is a fictional story. You will meet Julia Christianson, mother of three and a teacher, who feels the pain of tragedy and the brokenness of loss. Julia must find an inner power to survive.

The families depicted experience realities that they never could have predicted. Their unconditional love is tested, and they must find the power of forgiveness.

Much is also learned about the invisible population of the incarcerated, and the empowerment that can be found within their community.

The intent of telling this story is to give glory to God and His saving grace, to help give hope to the incarcerated, and to recognize Alcoholics Anonymous for the healing it can provide.

This story has been inspired by interviews held in a Department of Corrections prison.

About the Author

Martin Joseph is inspired by stories illustrating the human spirit especially when the human spirit is connected to a Higher Power. From the American Revolution to modern times, from George Washington, to Anne Frank, to John McCain; these lives showed a spirit that fought against all odds. What are some of the most difficult realities to overcome in life? Incarceration? Alcoholism? Loosing a child to a violent death? Anyone of these can and do cause hopelessness and a destroyed human spirit. The characters in Searching for Hope must fight against all three of these plights to find hope by asserting their human spirit.
