“As a forth stage cancer survivor I learned how precious life is. I practice everyday the art of gratitude and giving with my Comedy Cures Foundation. This book teaches you through parable how to give, how to love, how to follow your dreams. It’s a simple beautiful book that was given to Fran from above. I hope the world embraces it. I love it.” -Saranne Rothberg

“‘Hopeville’ delivers what the title promises…hope and inspiration. This book, which came to the author Fran Capo in a dream, can actually do a lot to fulfilling the dreams of all who read it. It shows that each and every one of us has the ability to positively impact the lives of others and improve our own life in the process. During todays trying times and rampant negativity, ‘Hopeville’ offers a very pleasing escape along with the realization that the power to change lies within all of us.” -John Basedow

“I enjoyed “Hopeville: The City of Light” immensely. First this wonderful and talented author, Fran Capo, peaks your interest with great stories illustrating the “the light” which can shine in all of our lives; then she caps off these inspiring accounts with a “how to” guide containing simple but very effective ways for infusing you life with the warmth of this magical light. Once you read this book you will never forget it! You’ll take the light with you wherever you go! Thank you Fran!”  -Ted Isaacson,

“I’ve been following a spiritual path and meditating for more than 30 years, and I want to thank you because after reading Hopeville, I felt so inspired and so full of joy. It made me want to live in my heart, connect with the Divine who lives within us all, brighten my inner flame and go out and do good things for people. And that was after reading just the first chapter! Your story is a brilliant reminder that true happiness comes from within and that we all belong to one big family. I pray that millions of others in our world family will read your book so they can get the same inspiration that I did.”
In gratitude,

Inspiring Book, Great Author December 25, 2015
“Hopeville: The City of Light” is inspiring on many levels. When you read it, you’re taken into another place and another time but you get the feeling the lessons taught are universal…and they are. No matter where you are in life you can always have an impact on others and do your part in changing the world. Fran Capo is a very talented writer who uses verbal imagery to make you feel you are right in the center of Hopeville and that it’s citizens are your neighbors. It’s refreshing to read such a positive, uplifting work…that hopefully will motivate you to make your own mark in this world. -John Basedow

An excellent, inspired reminder about true personal power
By Adrienne Austin on March 18, 2015
I chose to rate this short book 5 stars because it is a valuable story told simply but beautifully. I put the Kindle version in my WishList and got it yesterday for my birthday which also happened to be the exact time I most needed the reminders it contains. I read it cover to cover this morning before breakfast and it will be in my heart for the rest of my life. I’m going to be recommending this to many people!
