Need You Now

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.

When I found out that Beth Wiseman had a new book getting release through Thomas Nelson Publishing's Booksneeze blogger program, I was very excited to be one of the reviewers to receive a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. I love Wiseman's Amish stories and was a little surprised to read that this is her first book not about the Amish. However, if you are a fan of Wiseman's Amish books this  story will definitely be right up your alley. Her characters are flawed and lovable, and the storyline is believable while flowing well and keeping the reader interested in what will happen next. I found it hard to put down; I'd tell myself "at the end of this chapter, go to bed." and something would happen at the end of the chapter that would make me stay up for another chapter. Very well written, and emotional story.

I loved this book as well. Very realistic portrayal of the struggles of marriage and raising a family. Despite all the difficulties they face, the book overall is very hopeful, and I think most readers will be able to relate to the problems. It would also be a helpful book for someone who wants to understand what goes on in the mind of a teen who is harming herself by "cutting." Great book!
