This was a wonderful book. The story was intricately woven and kept a nice pace. The family dynamics proved interesting till the last page

Although this book was extremely readable and carried me along to the very end, I found the set up to be highly improbable and the main character especially to be so irritating as to be offensive. She almost deserved all the bad stuff that comes hurtling at her she's so self absorbed. The author spends an awful lot of time detailing arguements between the mother and her teenage daughter to the point that you wanted to slap both of them and slam the book shut.
Mostly my biggest quibble is with the circumstances in the last third of the book that were so unlikely as to be almost silly. At one point, a hired investigator responds to the main character's theories with "I don't buy it." Well, me, too. I didn't buy it. Didn't buy the situation, didn't buy the characters' responses to the situation.
I read this whole book in a matter of hours because I skimmed large chunks of it (NOT a good sign). I admit I was drawn into the story and that kept me going but the overall experience was one of irritation. Including the title. A reference to one throw-away phrase somewhere in the middle that really didn't have a lot to do with what was really going on.
I'm not sure what the point to this book was supposed to be: maternal devotion against all odds? coming to terms with the real priorities in life? the inexplicability of life itself? the weirdness inherent in most American families? was this just a suspense novel of some kind? You know what occurs to me, this is a Hollywood screenplay in novel form. If you read it that way, a text version of a summer blockbuster, you won't expect more than it can deliver.

This book is a very quick read, and sometimes that's what we readers want. The idea behind this story is good, and the things it tries to teach are valid, but I'm sorry, the plot was quite unbelievable. To me it didn't seem realistic at all, and that detracted from what could have been. How much tragedy does one family have to face? How much coincidence is believable? All questions that come up while reading this book. I don't buy that a seventeen year-old? can make this kind of life decision. I also don't buy that a fifteen year old would make the kind of decision that this boy does at the end.

I was disappointed with "The Color of Hope". I felt that it could have been better than it actually was. The story centers around a financially comfortable couple from Boston, who have two children. One day, while summering in Maine, tragedy strikes when the family goes sailing, and their lives change for the worst. Just as things seem as they cannot get any worse, they do. I felt that the author overdid it with the depressing parts of this book. The middle of the story is very slow, but the end picks up speed. However, the reader is left disappointed in the long run.

I am not fond of soap operas. I am not fond of plotlines that are contrived, unbelievable, inconsistent, or unrealistic. I am not fond of characters that lack credibility. I am not fond of this book. Ms. Madison tried, but this story of family crisis fell flat.....I didn't care if they all drowned. One shouldn't feel that way about a story. I know all author's have a clunker story in them.....I hope this was Ms. Madison's, and the next book I read of hers, I will herald. I am really not fond of writing unflattering reviews!!!

It is a long time since I read books that made me laugh or cry out loud. That was something I found in the books of childhood in which you immerse yourself, but decently written books tend in general to evoke less of a gut response. This book is no trashy light-weight read, yet left me, to my own surprise, weeping as I read it. I couldn't disagree more with one of the earlier reviewers who complained that the middle section was slow. Yes, the beginning and the end contain more surprises, but the central heartfelt descriptions of a family faced with the awful drawn-out horror of loss capture the emotions, as does Will, the son of every mother's heart. I was sceptical about this book as I began it, but it won me over

I was so fascinated by this tragically, mysterious family story that I had a hard time putting the book down and looked forward to finding time to pick it up again to find out what was happening next. There was much sadness and gloomy events as well as some happy times for that well-to-do family from Boston. I really enjoyed reading THE COLOR OF HOPE and recommend it highly as a story that is very different from family stories that are a bore.

This book was great. I read it in less than a day. It is the kind of book that keeps you wondering how a person will pick themselves up from a tragic loss. It had me crying throught out the entire book and never I never found any of its content boring or slow. I recommend it to any one that likes a heart felt novel. I will be reading it again soon. I would love to find more novels with this type of story line!
