Faith Departed: A Review
Starting a family was supposed to be easy.
Twin sisters June and July have never encountered an obstacle they couldn't overcome. Married just after graduating college, the girls and their husbands remained a close-knit group.
Now settled and successful, the next logical step is children. But as the couples struggle to conceive, each must reconcile the goodness of God with their present suffering.
Will their faith be strong enough to triumph in the midst of trial?
This is a raw, open look at the struggles of infertility. At times, I wished there was a happy moment to lighten the mood, but in reality, these are the emotions both the man and woman face and deal with constantly. So, I'm glad the author didn't sugar coat anything.
Women who are struggling to conceive will take comfort in a book that doesn't pretend like everything is going to turn out perfectly.
The ending comes on a cliffhanger, so make sure you download book two to start as soon as you finish book one!
Recommended for: women who have struggled or who are struggling to conceive. I enjoyed the story as a single woman though.
