Product Details


Praise for Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland
“[C]ompulsively readable. . . . Berry and DeJesus’s memoir sections are startlingly illuminating—and genuinely inspiring. It’s astounding to read how the young women kept up their spirits and their hopes even while being held captive by a monstrously cold, self-pitying brute.”
The Washington Post

“[A] breathtaking accomplishment. What could have been a record of two victims who endure the unendurable at the hands of a monster, is, instead, the story of two young and frightened girls as they come of age and, against all odds, come to an understanding of themselves and their tormenter. They emerge from the house on Seymour Avenue with an insight and compassion that many adults never grasp.”
—The Cleveland Plain Dealer
Hope is riveting, chilling, powerful and unforgettable. From raw emotion to quiet determination, Berry and DeJesus show the world the strength of hope.”
—Deseret News

“The bravery and resolve that Berry and DeJesus convey in this well-crafted memoir is both astonishing and inspiring”
—Publishers Weekly

“[A] compelling chronicle of Berry and DeJesus’ harrowing experiences in captivity, told in their own words and in a journal that Berry kept on scraps of paper . . . . A nuanced testament to the complexity of the human spirit.”
—Kirkus Reviews
