Three women and one teenager, bound together by a mission trip to South Africa.  Beaded Hope is a book inspired by a  nonprofit organization by the same name. 
Gabrielle, a children's minister at Graceview Church, a young woman with a deep love of children, who has struggled with infertility issues all of her married life.
Cassandra, an aging news anchor, desperate to keep her job and looking for a story that will be a heart grabber.
Heidi, a young widow and her teenage stepdaughter Katie, both struggling since their husband and dad passed away. 
What could these women possibly have in common and how in the world did they end up on a mission trip to South Africa together? 
Beaded Hope is a heartwarming story of the women and children of South Africa, who suffer from HIV and AIDS looking to serve the Lord and looking to make a living for themselves.  Paired up with this unlikely mission team, they are quickly becoming friends and each team member, even the South Africans find themselves ministering to the other. 
A wonderful story of love, hope and redemption, you will not want to put this book down till you finish it.  I cried and laughed along as I read, most definitely a book to keep in your permanent library.  381 pages $12.99 US 5 stars
