My Review: Marlo Schalesky has written another awesome book! The first book I read of hers was Beyond the Night, I was amazed then and I am astounded now! She is able to get you involved with the characters, to feel what they feel and empathize with their trials and sufferings. Kinna struggles to have a baby and struggles with her faith in God's ability to answer her prayers. She takes matters into her own hands to try to have a baby, goes against God's plan and her husband's. Kinna and Jimmy's marriage is deteriorating because she is so focused on having a baby that she forgets to love; he feels used as a baby machine. There are problems at Jimmy's job and he gets fired, while Kinna doesn't even know. And in the end of the book everything is worked together according to God's grand design for their lives. Even through disobedience God is able to work everything together for good! "Love believes all things. Genesis 1:31." That is an important quote in the book. Read this for yourself to find the awe of how God will work things out, even when we fall short.
