How two completely different people, both on the outside and inside figure out life's most important lessons. How will you decide if you were in their shoes?
As an investigative reporter and the host of her own TV talk show, Faith Marin works to expose the truth for her viewers. But in her personal life, she's anchored her world with firm boundaries in order to hide a family history she'd like to forget. By contrast, her husband Geary's life is an open book. An easygoing pro bass fisherman, Geary is the ultimate family man--and his overbearing relatives don't know the meaning of boundaries.
Faith and Geary haven't been married long when their differences start to derail their tender relationship. Surely love shouldn't be this hard. While Faith considers whether divorce is the only answer to their issues, tragedy strikes. With her life in the balance, she finds that the one she has been shutting out may be the very one she cannot bear to lose.
Faith is the only character and surprisingly, Chuck (the camera-man) that I find I understood. Faith's the life of the book. Her development is the strongest as it should be. With Geary, his development was somewhat disappointing. He's still the same man from the beginning and to the conclusion of story. I wish there was more growth. For example, for him to see when a marriage crumbles, it takes two. It's not only one person's fault or there's not only one side of the story. I know he mentioned his shortcomings at the end, but I would like to be able to "feel" it through the words of the story. Another character I want to mention is Connor. Reading about him and his words, I can see or rather feel how Faith felt. His faith, at such a young age is astounding and inspiring. "He looked up at her then. 'Oh-tay. But I'm not awone. Jesus is wif me.'" (291). The faith of a little child that surpassed all. I love it.
In all, a beautiful story about faith, committed love and family. All important things in any one and everyone's life, and because of that, I would recommend this.
