Need You Now by Beth Wiseman Book Review & Giveaway

Need you Now
by:  Beth Wiseman

About the Book:
"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 Brad and Darlene 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 the students starts paying more attention to Darlene 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 triumph over lies, betrayal, and loss while still clinging to the One who matters most."

My Review:
I have never read a Beth Wiseman book before , but I will say I am now a fan!  This is an amazing story, full of issues that any family could be facing, even your own. 
After moving to a small town to escape the big-city problems, the Henderson's find that changing locations doesn't always change the problems.  I like that this is such a relateable story, a mom with insecurities, a dad with preoccupations, kids with real problems and secrets all around.  From learning disabilities to the dangerous new practice of cutting, these are real issues and how this family has to deal with them.  Faith, the one constant is their saving grace.  This is a wonderful story for any mom or teen facing similar problems because it has such a wonderful message.  God does give second chances, you just have to believe.  2 Thumbs Up!

  1. I loved this book as well. Very realistic portrayal of the struggles of marriage and raising a family. Despite all the difficulties the characters face, the book overall is very hopeful, and I think most readers will be able to relate to the problems. It would also be a helpful book for someone who wants to understand what goes on in the mind of a teen who seems “perfect” on the outside but is dealing with life’s pressure in a very unhealthy way. Great book!

  2. I love reading, it would be fun to win this!

  3. I love reading and discover new authors I haven't read before. I would love to win, sounds like a great story!
