When Kari Baxter Jacobs finds out that her husband is involved in an adulterous relationship and wants a divorce, she decides she will love him and remain faithful to her marriage at all costs.

Very, very good book!

I am a Christian and for me it is difficult to find books that are true to God's Word. This book is one of them. The writer has remembered that God's Word is Holy. The storyline is very good, but it is not all happy-happy because life is not all happy-happy. We all deal with trials and this book reminded me most of all that "His grace is sufficient" for me and I must always seek God's Will. The characters are very well developed and have depth. The story line is not plot driven, but rather character driven and I enjoy that. The narration by Sandra Burr is excellent. I intend on purchasing and reading/listening to this entire series. If you are a Christian, you will love this book. If you are a non-believer, buy this book because it may help you to understand God's Will for your own life. Either way, God Bless and thank you Mrs. Kingsbury for being a good and faithful servant to our Lord.

Predictable

I liked the story. And the message to follow God's plans not our own. It wasn't my favorite bc I didn't get any wrap up on other characters stories. And it was super predictable from the start.

disappointed but good messages

I had to work to get through this. I think it would have read better if I had read it. I found the reader difficult to listen to: a little syrupy and dramatic when it didn't call for it. Great messages though. Still, I gained by this audiobook.

Too much conflict

This book is about someone stepping outside of their marriage. It includes their justification for giving up their faith. Way too much worldliness and information.

Narrator’s voice is quite annoying

While I am trying to like this book because it is a solid storyline and I enjoy being reminded of God’s truths, the narrator’s voice makes it so hard to keep listening. The whiny tones in her voice when she changes for men characters, the creepy old women voices, and the wimpy and flighty sounding voices for the women are incredibly distracting.

Penguin Lover

Enjoyed this book. It was enjoyable to hear about a strong women whose faith was what she relied on for her direction and how she kept her promise of marriage when tempted otherwise.
