“No sooner met but they looked; no sooner looked but they loved; no sooner loved but they sighed; no sooner sighed but they asked one another the reason; no sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy; and in these degrees have they made a pair of stairs to marriage…” ~ William Shakespeare
G. E. Hamlin tells a captivating story about God’s love for us and His intent for troubled marriages…actually, make that all marriages.
The experiences that Darla, Randall, and Paul have are relateable for Christians and non-Christians alike. For example, what adult has never had a small child say something that changes one’s perspective?
While there is scripture quoted periodically throughout, the book is not (for lack of a better word) “preachy” like some other books I’ve read. I loved that I could relate to the story without feeling like I would be judged later for my own experiences.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review, but I can’t wait until I can afford the small amount of money to buy my own copy.
Darla Connor is struggling with whether to stay in her troubled marriage or walk away. Maintaining a long distance friendship with an old sweetheart isn’t making the decision easier, especially when that sweetheart, now a famous country music star declares his love for her, even though she is married. Randall Connor is a recovering alcoholic and wants to heal his broken marriage, and as a new believer, he is counting on God to help him. When Darla rejects his ultimatum to sever ties with her old boyfriend, he’s in for the battle of his life. Will Darla follow promises of a better life with her old boyfriend, or will she surrender to God in time to save her marriage.
