Book Review: A Fragile Hope

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

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 Opinion

I just finished reading this book and I can say for sure that this will be a book that I won't soon forget! Honestly, I had to take many breaks while reading this book because it was very heavy on my heart but I never wanted to stop reading!

This book was so real and included themes and situations that all couples struggle with - infidelity, loneliness, sadness, love, faithfulness, depression and faith. The struggles that Josiah faces in his faith, his mind and in his walk in life is heartbreaking to watch but also so inspiring as he takes one day at a time, one walk at a time and trusts God to guide his path.

I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a book that is heartbreaking but also inspiring and full of hope!
