Edgey Christian fiction set in the real world

Never Without Hope is Christian romance with a difference. Hope has it all—husband, son, an agent, even, almost, a publisher. She’s part of an active church family. She goes to women’s Bible studies. She’s happy, and there’s just that one thing worrying her; her husband’s love, so consistent, so deep, seems somewhat less physical than it used to be.
Hope is beautiful, the sort of woman men’s eyes might follow in a crowd, and she likes to be looked at. She likes to flirt, just a little, and knows she’ll never stray… until that one man temps her just a little too far, when she’s just a little too disappointed, just a little too eager for the comfort of somebody’s touch. Then Hope’s life begins to fall apart, and all the good intentions in the world can’t help when temptation returns.
James is a good man, a gentle man, devoted father and husband, with just one little problem. So who’s to blame? Young Jimmie points out that we all have choices, whoever’s wounded us. And out of the mouths of children, pastors and friends, come the prayers a family needs—while out of the mouths of others come accusations and reminders of guilt.
Michelle Sutton creates some very believable, and believably flawed characters in her tale. Christians do stray, do hurt each other, do scream and shout and behave like hypocrites. But they also have hope. In this tale, even Hope will learn that God never lets her down. And the reader learns sympathy and forgiveness in a surprisingly powerful tale.
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book as a Christmas gift from a Christian website, an I’m posting a review because I enjoyed it.
