Book Review: 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 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 Opinion
I am a big fan of Beth Wiseman and I have read many of her Amish novels in the past. I was surprised to see a contemporary fiction book written by her but was excited to see how it would be without the Amish story line!

It ended up being a great read and I was not disappointed! It kept my attention and kept me reading more and more! I really liked the story line because as a married woman with kids, I could really relate to what the characters were going through in their life and how their faiths were tested!

This book had some great reminders for me and my faith:

  1. Always trust God
  2. Don't forget to pray for help, thanksgiving, and forgiveness
  3. Be thankful for a wonderful marriage, family and faith
  4. Remember bad things will happen in our lives because of sin but never give up hope or my faith!

I recommend this book for all Christian adults! You will enjoy a great book and be strengthened in your faith!

Buy It: You can purchase Need You Now by Beth Wiseman for $10.87 on
