Need You Now Book Review

Book Review of Need You Now
  by Beth Wiseman

     From Amazon: "When big-city life threatens the safety of one of their children, Brad and Darlene Henderson move with their three teenagers from Houston to the tiny town of Round Top, Texas.
Adjusting to small-town life is difficult for the kids, especially fifteen-year-old Grace who is coping in a dangerous way.  Married life hasn't always been bliss, but their strong faith has carried Brad and Darlene through the difficult times. When Darlene takes a job outside the home for the first time in their marriage, the domestic tension rises. While working with special needs children at her new job, the widowed father of one of the students starts paying more attention to Darlene than is appropriate. Problem is, she feels like someone is listening to her for the first time in a long time.
If Darlene ever needed God . . . it's now. Experience a family's triumph over lies, betrayal, and loss while still clinging to the One who matters most."

"You may think you are familiar with Beth's wonderful storytelling gift but this is something new! It's a story of how God can redeem the seemingly unredeemable. It's a message the world needs to hear." -Sheila Walsh, author of God Loves Broken People

    Everyone that reads my blog knows that I'm not generally interested in family/love novels.  But, this one is an exceptional read.  This is the perfect story of family matters that affect a great deal of us and Beth Wiseman does a quality job at staying close to home.  I will be offering this book as a giveaway (look here) this month.  I endorse this book fully, especially if you have dealt with friendship, marriage, affairs, self-mutilation or loss.  This is a undemanding summer read for any woman. 

(I received this book free from Handlebar Marketing as part of their blogging and book giveaway program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
