This book was better than the last, if you ask me. This book can stand alone. It is about Faith Marin, a woman who is up and coming in journalism. Faith comes from a shattered past. Her Dad died in a car wreck, with his mistress. If that wasn't bad enough, it was enough that her Mom killed herself. That should have been more than enough for anyone, but nope. She's hooked into a family that isn't good for her, and her brother has a major addiction. Her husband, he is a jerk! Frankly, Faith's life is in shambles and all she has left is her job. Her show is called "Faith On Air". I liked that name a lot!
Something major happens, something that rocks her world on top of everything else she has already dealt with. Is this even enough to destroy her? Is God in her life, or is this all she had left? A rather interesting read!
My copy came from Revell in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.
A Reason To Stay
By Kellie Coates Gilbert
Sometimes the thing that keeps us from making the wrong choice is the one thing we can't control
As an investigative reporter and the host of her own TV talk show, Faith Marin works to expose the truth for her viewers. But in her personal life, she's anchored her world with firm boundaries in order to hide a family history she'd like to forget. By contrast, her husband Geary's life is an open book. An easygoing pro bass fisherman, Geary is the ultimate family man--and his overbearing relatives don't know the meaning of boundaries.
Faith and Geary haven't been married long when their differences start to derail their tender relationship. Surely love shouldn't be this hard. While Faith considers whether divorce is the only answer to their issues, tragedy strikes. With her life in the balance, she finds that the one she has been shutting out may be the very one she cannot bear to lose.
Kellie Coates Gilbert takes you on an emotional roller coaster as she weaves together unexpected trial, self-discovery, and forgiveness in this profoundly honest portrait of the tensions that can break a marriage--and the ultimate healing power of love.
