A Reason to Stay by Kellie Coates Gilbert

Faith Martin has worked very hard to become a successful investigative reporter and celebrity TV host. The accomplishment has not come without sacrifices to her personal life, however. Growing distant from her easygoing and family-oriented husband, Faith is willing to sacrifice her marriage in order to succeed at her career. But when tragedy strikes, suddenly Faith is confronted with circumstances that forever change her goals. She is forced to confront deep emotional scars and troubling transformations, causing her to re-examine her life and rely on someone she did not expect to ever need again.

Full of emotion and difficult topics, Kellie Coates Gilbert crafts a story that is rife with realistic toils. Based in part on true struggles of the author, the transparency and authenticity of the plot truly create a remarkable story. I really liked the characters as well as the realism of their struggles and trials. The romance is very well told, the genuine tension and difficulty in their relationship only serving to better create relatable characters. The depth of the story and overall themes of faith and redemption form an extraordinary story that is highly recommended!

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

  1. What a lovely cover! And what a great review, thank you for bringing this book to my attention. I like books really focused on character growth, and it seems like Faith has a lot of growing up to do. How many stars out of five would you give it? πŸ™‚
