The book covers, with sound Biblical truths, topics such as modesty, adultery, sex before marriage, and lust. And while I agree with the author wholeheartedly, the book came across as slightly cheesy and a little bit preachy. With that said, it was an enjoyable b ...more

I like this novel as it echos with realism. Some part of what was written here had happen to my friends and family before. Scary ya? It could happen to anyone.
Overall, it's a good read. This book could be a form of inspiration and comfort for those who are going thru what these women experienced.I am looking forward to her next book.
Dangerous territory. Letting our guard down. Thinking we have everything under control. Not being satisfied with what we have.
Faithful is all about relationships. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
I was really ticked at Phyllis in the stuff she was pulling. I think the characters were pretty "real."
One conversion was a bit hokey. Glad to read though that all weren't magically "saved."
Amazingly, the book portrays how prayer and Christian fellowship among friends should be.
