Need You Now by Beth Wiseman + Giveaway

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.


Need You Now is a contemporary work that most can relate to in their lives at some point.  The characters are well-developed and the issues real.  Darlene, mother of three, struggles with raising her teens.  As a mother of teenagers myself, I can certainly relate.  Is the issue a result of my parenting? Where did it all go wrong? You only want the best for your children and will do anything to ensure their happiness and security. 

When Darlene takes a job for the first time in her marriage, outside of the home, it begins a rift in her marriage.  Someone else has taken an interest in her and they are listening, something she hasn't had in awhile. With the youngest child, Gracie, really struggling with the move and some personal issues adding tension to the family and danger to herself, the whole family bond is stretched and it will take some faith and hope to put this family back together again.

A strong plot, heart-warming and issues that many can relate to or it could happen, Wiseman has written an engaging and emotional page-turner.  I had a hard time putting this book now and the family out of my mind - highly recommend!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
