About The Author:
M. A. Malcolm still finds it hard to believe that she is a published Christian author. A certified copy editor and college instructor, she has been interested in writing fiction since her childhood. The lonely, blinking cursors surrounded by stark white space, however, convinced her that writing wasn’t one of her gifts.
Until she had something she was desperate to say. In the wake of multiple pregnancy losses early in her marriage, she felt led to write something that would help Christian women to deal with grief. After several failed attempts to translate her thoughts to the pages of a self-help book, she began to write a fictional story line that incorporated some of the painful issues she wanted to address. Soon, it was as if the characters had a life of their own, and she could only accompany them on their journey towards healing and love. Malcolm’s first novel, “His Last Hope: A Contemporary Christian Romance” was inspired by the Holy Spirit, whom she refers to as her “Holy Ghostwriter.” She prays that “His Last Hope” will encourage its readers to trust God in and through all circumstances, knowing that He is able to work all things together so that His purpose will be served. Now the mother of a rambunctious three-year-old, M. A. Malcolm divides her time among her family responsibilities, teaching and copy-editing through her website, Nitpicking with a Purpose, in her native Jamaica.

When Professor Daniel Donahue returns to Florida from teaching abroad, he’s suspicious of the stranger now living with his beloved aunt. He makes it his mission to discredit Hope and disclose what he believes are her devious intentions. Hope can’t help but feel the tension between them, but just below the surface lies an attraction neither of them can explain.

You will have to read this story for yourself to see what happens in the lives of these characters and how God works into their lives. As a passionate reader, I must admit that this is one of the most mesmerize and refreshing narrative that I have read so far. By the time I finished with the epilogue I was really looking forward to see how the narrative bring about to unfold. The characters were well created by Marsha Malcolm, the mental images was awe-inspiring. The utmost thought-provoking thing for me was that the narrative was unpredictable; as it unfolded I being passionate enough to move forward to the next chapter to see what would occur next. The plot was up to par matured and climaxed at the right time. The ecclesiastical references were in the nick of time and even though the book is fiction, the message minister directly to my soul and was a solid as rock admonition of the awesome power of God. Marsha written a marvelous book that had so much spiritual, life changing and fictional balance at the same time. This was a perfect narrative of amazing love, redemption, salvation and forgiveness.This book is a recommend read for everyone, especially those individuals who have the desire to be made aware about God’s Awesome Power, Love and Grace. Also for those individuals who are looking for a breakthrough from any chains that seek to hold them in bondage. In my opinion this is also a great read for individuals like myself who love to read an inspiring christian novella about love.
