He's not very happy about it, but once the plane takes off, what's he going to do about it.

I only gave this book 1 star as I thought it was sorta boring at times. The author said she wrote this book to help you see what your priories are. Also how important it is to keep your love alive.
Its the story of Michaela & Ben Reynolds and their relationship. They have 6 children which are left almost completely to Michaela. Ben is so involved in his calling as a Bishop & a demanding career that no time seems to be left for the family. Michaela secretly arranges a vacation for them to
I gave this 4 stars NOT for it's characters, not for the writing, not even for the story, because they were all quite contrived. But because it is what I am choosing to call a 're-romance'.

It's the story of an LDS woman, 20 years into marriage with all of the usual stresses and how she and her husband fall BACK in love.
Not the superficial jittery silly kind of love, although she remembers all of those things she liked about him and still admires, but deep, true, life time together love.

I think
I enjoyed her realistic portrayal of how a relationship can stagnate, but I thought the whole idea of them in peril was poorly done and seemed less than gripping.
This was not my favorite by Mickele Ashman Bell. It was too negative towards husbands. It ended well, which made up for the negative parts.
This was an alright book. I became frustrated with it sometimes, but I liked the message for the most part. Maybe it's a 2 and a half stars.
Enjoyed this LDS fiction. A quick read that is part relationship study/part adventure. Good, entertaining story with a good conclusion.
This was a good book. It helped me smile and look at things here and now better!

Fun little church fictional book that could be like some womens' lives. I
I thought it was really good and i liked the story line and the plot.
I have really liked her books, this one was kind of slow for me.
The back cover made this sound a lot more exciting than it was.

I thought the book was a little slow to start.
I've read it before....ended up skimming half.
This is about as "LDS Fiction" as you can get!

I grew up in St. George, Utah, where a lot of my family still lives, but now reside with my husband and family in the Salt Lake City area. My favorite thing to do is support my kids in their many interests. Between basketball, ballet and piano lessons we squeeze a lot into a week, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
