Absolutely hated the hero, he was a loser, he is the most unrepentant cheating husband ever... he thinsk because his sin is out that his wife should just...deal with it...forgive him...get in bed...uh...no... The other woman is probably the most repugnant...has the audacity to tell his wife she didnt regret anything... yeah too bad this was a christian based book as I know 2 horrid faithless losers who need to be together....as his wife deserved better... and once again a child born of cheating ...more

One star is a cruel rating, I know, but I hated everything about David Treasure, and can't bring myself to give any higher than that to his 'creator'. I could like and respect a serial killer more than this tool. Ugh. I have nothing else to say that wouldn't likely get my account deleted.

'A Morning Like This' tells the story of a married, Christian couple fiercely in love. The only thorn in this relationship is the heavy secret that David has hidden from his wife for nine years. He believes that he can move on from his mistake and just pretend that it never happened and that Abby would never have to know about it...until the phone call came.

Nine years ago, David and Abby had only been married for a short time when they found out that they were having a baby. Abby, still tormente

I’m not normally a reader of Christian fiction but the blurb on this book intrigued me so much I decided to give it a go. The book itself wasn’t bad but I’ve only given it a 2/5 because it didn’t particularly grab me and it’s not one that I would pick up again.
Bedford did a great job of bringing most of the characters to life and I especially enjoyed reading from David’s, Braden’s and Samantha’s points of view but for some reason I felt detached from Abby. I can’t put my finger on why that was b

I really loved this book. The story kept me interested and I found myself rooting for all the characters.

This was a very inspirational read. It was heart-warming. It really made me think of the situation David & Abby were in, and what I would do if I was in Abby's shoes. The only person that I didn't sympathize with so much was David. After all, it was his doing that caused everything. He was the married man. Susan was in the wrong too, but her commitment was not to Abby as was David's. I am glad it ended the way it did.

I would have some tissue handy you just might need it for this book.

I probably should put a disclaimer out there that I don't normally read these kinds of Christian fiction/romance type books, so my views are a little swayed due to that. I decided to read it because I thought the plot looked interesting. I thought the storyline moved quickly enough, so I did not get bored. However, the characters did not seem realistic and the ending is awkward.
Brandi
I really enjoyed reading this book as you can tell it only took me 2 days to finish. I could not put it down, to see the struggles between the husband and wife and forgiveness she had for him after the ultimate betrayal was amazig. I recommend this book to any married person.

I love Deborah Bedford's writing! A Morning Like This was no fairytale, but a tough subject for Christians to deal with. Deborah is a master at portraying three dimensional characters, ones with whom the reader can identify and sympathize. It's a powerful read.
Donna
This is one of the best books I have ever read. Deborah Bedford is a great Christian writer, with such good values and moral lessons. Abigail had a hard struggle but finally learned to forgive the people that had hurt her and she kept locked up inside for many years.
