Need You Now By Beth Wiseman

When big-city life threatens the safety of one of their children, Brad and Darlene Henderson move with their three teenagers from Houston to the tiny town of Round Top, Texas. Adjusting to small-town life is difficult for the kids, especially fifteen-year-old Grace who is coping in a dangerous way. Married life hasn't always been bliss, but their strong faith has carried them through the difficult times. When Darlene takes a job outside the home for the first time in their marriage, the domestic tension rises. While working with special needs children at her new job, the widowed father of one of Darlene's students starts paying more attention to her than is appropriate. Problem is, she feels like someone is listening to her for the first time in a long time. If Darlene ever needed God . . . it's now. Experience a family's triumphant defeat over lies, betrayal, and loss while still clinging to the One who matters most.
I love how Beth draws the reader in with her writing style right from the very first page, with the suspense of an intruder in the bedroom. I also enjoyed the real life aspect of this book. The passion between the characters, the possiblity of an affair, the teenage troubles, it's all something we can relate to at some point. There seems to be something for every situation. This is not thefirst book I've read by this author, and I'm really beginning to like her style. I think the bottom line in this book is that it all comes down to forgiveness. How God is so willing to forgive us and we must do the same for others. The sins of the flesh can be so overbearing at times, but it's how we react, give in and recover that matters. I would reccomend this book!
