From Hardship to Hope invites the reader to walk into the complexities of two women’s parallel universes. It is a fictionalized, shared autobiography. Some of the moments and experiences come from the co-authors’ lives. Some do not.

This book challenges us to consider where our—often strongly held—different beliefs and assumptions about reality come from. The idea for From Hardship to Hope—Zoe and Ruby Blue’s story—emerged during the weighty years of the Covid-19 pandemic when many people’s daily patterns changed and our world shuddered on its axis.
