H.K. Collier marks his debut in the world of literature with “Hope - Fu Love” (published by Xlibris), a deeply moving story of a young woman with Down’s syndrome who embarks on a life-changing journey. Peopled by a cast of indelibly characterized men and women, this new novel examines nuances of love and relationships through the lens of mental disabilities.

“Hope - Fu Love” charts the life of the eponymous Hope Fulona Madison. Born with Down’s syndrome, the young heroine is unwilling to let society dictate her fate. She follows her heart despite living in a world where the developmentally challenged are marginalized and ostracized. Hope finds herself struggling to find happiness and love in a harsh, unrelenting society. She faces racism, prejudice and a seemingly hopeless romance. Can Hope prevail in the midst of these overwhelming odds or is she destined to be trapped in society’s limited expectations of her?

By equal turns harrowing and uplifting, “Hope - Fu Love” is a stunning debut that provides a deep depiction of what life may have been for someone embracing abnormality in the late decades of the nineteenth century. It is a poignant glimpse into an otherwise unimaginable life and, above all, it is a universal story of survival and the indomitable human spirit.
