Publisher's Summary

At 33 weeks pregnant, Amy is certain something bad will soon happen; it had happened too many times before. Deep down she fears it's only a matter of time before the baby she's carrying will die. Despite the fact that Amy had been repeatedly slapped in the face with multiple miscarriages, she still can't seem to quiet that tiny voice in the back of her head that's screaming at her to not give up hope.
Follow Amy's true story as she stumbles through her journey with humor and warmth, all while dealing with the neuroses that came along with getting her hopes shattered time and time again. All she has to do is close her eyes and she's lurched back to the memories of her losses: on the floor in her bathroom, in the hospital, and even at her place of work. No one knows what the internal mind of a woman who'd lost five babies and suffered so many let downs goes through. Can hope ever truly survive memories such as these?

Truly Touching

What made the experience of listening to Chasing Hope the most enjoyable?

The story, I haven't been this wrapped up in a non-fiction in years. Amy Daws' gave such an honest look into pregnancy loss and infertility; I went into the story knowing a piece of it, so it made it easier to listen to as my heart broke. It's raw, beautiful, and heartbreaking. Somehow, by the end, I had hope for a better outcome when I eventually make that journey again.


What other book might you compare Chasing Hope to and why?

I couldn't compare it to any other book I've read.


Which scene was your favorite?

I can't say I would have a favorite scene, besides the last few chapters. I can relate to a lot of the book though.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! I normally stay at my gym for an hour and I stayed for two just to listen to the story. I finished it the first chance I had the next morning.
