About the book:
Hope grows when seeds are planted-even in the muddy middle of life.
Josiah Chamberlain’s life’s work revolves around repairing other people’s marriages. When his own is threatened by his wife’s unexplained distance, and then threatened further when she’s unexpectedly plunged into an unending fog, Josiah finds his expertise, quick wit and clever quips are no match for a relationship that is clearly broken.
Feeling betrayed, confused, and ill-equipped for a crisis this crippling, he reexamines everything he knows about the fragility of hope and the strength of his faith and love. Love seems to have failed him. Will what’s left of his faith fail him, too? Or will it be the one thing that holds him together and sears through the impenetrable wall that separates them?

My thoughts:

I enjoyed this book and was wrapped up in it within a few pages. I haven’t read many of Cynthia’s books but I really enjoyed this one.

The story is compelling.

The husband in the story is a marriage therapist with books and speaking engagements. His wife is distant and considering leaving.

He has no idea that trouble is brewing until there’s a horrible accident.

He’s left struggling to find answers and asking questions about his faith while he sits and waits and tries to hold onto hope.

If you’re looking for a good read try this one.
