Need You Now by Beth Wiseman

Need You Now

Need You Now by Beth Wiseman

""A ground-breaking contemporary marriage story by best-selling author Beth Wiseman that will stay on your heart long after you've finished it." --Kelly Long, best-selling author of "The Arms of Love
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 them 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 Darlene's students starts paying more attention to her 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 triumphant defeat over lies, betrayal, and loss while still clinging to the One who matters most. "

My Take: To be perfectly honest I haven't quite finished this book yet but I am well on my way.  From the opening scene this book grabs you straight out of the gate and doesn't let go.  I can relate a bit to some of what the book talks about with moving from the city to the country (more like the suburb to the country for me) The way that friends can influence you children (usually for the bad it seems)  the need for something more in your life to feel like you are living a life that is worth something.  It shows what happens when you let your guard down just a bit when we need to stay vigilant for our sakes, our spouses sakes and our children's sakes.  I can't wait to find out what else is going to happen within the pages of this book. 

Please see the following post for a movie trailer and a first chapter peak of this book.

I received a review copy for my honest review.
