Renewed Strength in Love

This book was so magnificent. It was worthy of so many more stars. I loved it from beginning to end. The power of the fate that she has in God, her love, this book is a definition of what a marriage should be. Anyone looking to feel refreshed should read this book. Steps of a good man are pledged through God; Jake learned that lesson eventually.

A powerful book about forgiveness and redemption. An amazing read!

In the parable told by Jesus in ...more

Victoria and Jake Madison separated after the death of their daughter, which happened as a result of infidelity. Can thus marriage be saved? A better question would be, will Sheila, Jake's business partner let it go down without a fight?
Good read, nice to change the pace and read something with not so much "urban" stuff in it.
