The Voice of Hope Heard Across the Heart of Life


 
 
 
Psychologist/professor Jevne has been fascinated by hope and the attempt to understand how it develops and is strengthened through the many “voices” of everyday living. Through autobiographical narrative incidents, Jevne articulates the voices of mother, family, school, intimacy, illness, the “other,” and the Other. Throughout, she finds sustenance from people who care, from community, and from those who seek her help-such as the dying woman who asks Jevne-the-psychologist to pray for her. The Voice of Hope is a clear, simple, yet profound book. It has been recommended for public libraries.
