I Love a book with a strong, independent woman, despite her flaws, past, and life-avoidances. A Reason To Stay, by Kellie Coates Gilbert is such a book.
Faith Marion is a self-absorbed news anchor in an unhappy marriage. Her husband, Geary, brings his own damaged past to their relationship. They each had expectations of wedded life and they’ve fallen short. Faith has choices to make, continue in her selfish thoughts and actions, or give in to something far bigger than she could’ve imagined.
‘Faith’s eyes lit up. They both knew he’d thrown her a bone—a story with national importance.’
Author Kellie Coates Gilbert has a fresh, engaging voice that kept my interest from the very first page. Her storyline isn’t outlandish, or one of those “this would never happen in real life” stories. It’s realistic, and connects with the reader on a deep spiritual level. A Reason to Stay is a moving story of brokenness, healing, and love.
First Line: There’s no need to fix something that isn’t broken.
I received a Review Copy from the publisher.
