Book Review: Faithful
By Kim Cash Tate
Thomas Nelson, 2010
English, 320 pgs
Three life-long friends experience life-altering struggles. Will they find the strength to be faithful to the covenants they've made with God...and each other?Cydney Sanders thought she knew God's plan for her life. She'd marry, have kids, and then snap her body back into shape with Tae Bo. But she's celebrating her fortieth birthday as the maid of honor at her little sister's wedding . . . and still single. Why would God give her this desire to marry, but no husband? And why is her life suddenly complicated by the best man-who's the opposite of what she wants in a husband?
Cydney's best friend Dana has the perfect marriage. But when Dana discovers her husband's affair, her world goes into a tailspin. And Phyllis is out of hope after six years of unanswered prayers for her husband to find faith. When she runs into an old friend who is the Christian man she longs for, she's faced with an overwhelming choice.
With life falling apart around them, can they trust God like never before?
I felt this was truer to life than many Christian books are now-a-days. The characters dealt with real circumstances and real emotions. I'm passing this along to my girls at church. This is by far the best Christian fiction book I've read this year.
I don't want to give anything away, but keep a box of tissues handy when you read it and get ready to be pulled into the story.
I received a copy of this book from Book Sneeze as a part of their Blogger Review program. I have received no additional compensation and was not required to write a positive review.
