  • Noel
    Oh, I hate a cheater! This book, written with a Christian perspective, tells the story of Colton and Laurel. Colton cheated on his wife while away at a conference and is caught in the act. He and his wife separate for a year. Colton's humility and grief over his own actions won me back over, and I love how Laurel gave her heart over to God for healing after figuring out she couldn't do it on her own. Nothing is glossed over, there's no magic forg...

    Lauel and Colton's marriage unraveled when he was caught in another woman's arms. She made him leave. Now a year later they are being put back together thru the loving guidance of God. Yes this is a Christian romance, it's also about forgiving. Both were hurt. But with the love of God and giving up all hurt unto Him they slowly can move on. Erin Landy's way of writing made this story line feel real. Not just for reading entertainment but with tho...

    Very good book about forgiveness and loveI sincerely enjoyed this book. It was clean and very real. I felt a connection to both of the main characters and enjoyed their journey back to each other.

    This is an honest look at a heartbreaking situation. Told through past and present events, newly married Colton and Laurel Samuels have their love tested in one fateful night. “His mistake destroyed her trust in him and only God could repair the damage and restore their marriage.” He turned toward God while she turned away. After being separated almost a year, they are reunited unexpectedly. He had faced his sin immediately with regret and re...

    I liked this thought provoking book. I despise what Colton did and cannot imagine catching your husband in the act. How can you get that mental image out of your mind and move on? Laurel had no contact with him for a full year. Good for her! Then after accidentally running into him, she finds it in her heart to work toward forgiveness. Yes, we are to forgive but we are not required to remain married to someone who has committed sexual immorality....

    It’s a very well written story.Although I don’t like subjects that involve cheating, liked how the author veawes the story around forgiveness (forgiving others but, more importantly, learning how to forgive yourself) and choosing to trust God with your future. It’s not a superficial read... you get to feel the pain, experience the struggle, walk wih the caracters the path towards healing... you feel the joy of the freedom found, the freedom...
  • Ria
    Remarkable in its sincerity...And realism. It has to move quickly due to the genre, but delves into the truly tricky subjects that assail a couple when one breaks faith. The struggle to see past a single action into a contrite soul sears and convicts. Don't miss this chance to grow closer to someone you love and the Lord.
  • Tracy
    This was an interesting read about a Christian couple coming back from one of a marriage’s worst betrayals. Overall, clean and straightforward, and I liked the characters. My one peeve was with the transitions between her point of view and his; that could have been done more smoothly.
  • Mary
    Good book about forgiveness after Colton cheats on his wife. The parts about God's love and forgiveness are good, but over all the book failed to hold my interest. I found myself skimming whole pages.
  • Ranee
    Sad but hopeful story, showing how through the love of God true forgiveness & hope can come when someone we cares about hurts us. Some of the dialog seemed a little canned but overall good.
  • Cindy
    This book was difficult for me to read. She did a wonderful job of describing the pain and joy of forgiving one you love.
  • Jaymy M.
    Good development of charactersI really enjoyed this one. Second chances have always been among my fave in this genre. I liked the way the author showed the development of both main characters and the role their spiritual relationship has on their reactions.The message was one I needed yo hear.I liked that it was a christian story without being too ... preachy is the only word that comes to mind. Great balance. Would have liked it to have explored...

This a wonderful book. And the Bible verses are so applicable to real situations. You are a great writer and good hearted Christian. Keep writing books like this one. If you've ever wondered if this book has helped someone be assured it has. You said the same words I'...

    When I first started reading this book I thought it was a little slow, but as I continued reading it just got better and better. And I ended up thoroughly enjoying it. Great message of forgiveness here.
  • Lillie
    A great story of betrayal and forgiveness--showing how faith can bring back together the most shattered relationship.
  • Kelli
    What a great story about God's love and forgiveness.
  • Rena Terrell
    Wonderful We can't pick and chose what we will forgive. God forgives us of all our sins. We have to be able to get through the good times and the bad times.
