"Need You Now" by Beth Wiseman #Giveaway (CLOSED)

This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner listed below!



When I first saw that Beth Wiseman had a new book out, I thought it would be an Amish fiction. I thought this because Beth Wiseman writes Amish fiction books that I've read before. Turns out this is the first modern fiction novel that Wiseman has written. I, for one, am really glad that this author tried something a little different. While her Amish fiction books are great, Need You Now is fantastic.

The product: Need You Now by Beth Wiseman is a contemporary fiction novel. This story is about a normal family who is going through life and dealing with a little more than they expected. They made a move, thinking it would be a simpler life for them, but that wasn't necessarily the case. Sometimes issues within families lies just beneath the surface. But with love, patience, and learning to listen to each other, maybe this new chapter of their lives will be OK.
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.

What I thought: I think I already mentioned that I LOVED this book! The characters and family were very easy to relate to for me. Here is a Christian family who works hard, loves each other, and fits God into the mix. I see a little of myself in the future in the main character, Darlene, in this book. I hope that I can handle what God throws at my life as well as she did.

I think you'll enjoy this book, especially if Christian fiction if up your alley. It's a nice, easy, modern story. I couldn't put it down after I started. And I strongly encourage Beth Wiseman to write some more modern fictions like this...she's good at it.
