a reason to stay


Sometimes the thing that keeps us from making the wrong choice is the one thing we can’t control

As an investigative reporter and the host of her own TV talk show, Faith Marin works to expose the truth for her viewers. But in her personal life, she’s anchored her world with firm boundaries in order to hide a family history she’d like to forget. By contrast, her husband Geary’s life is an open book. An easygoing pro bass fisherman, Geary is the ultimate family man–and his overbearing relatives don’t know the meaning of boundaries.

Faith and Geary haven’t been married long when their differences start to derail their tender relationship. Surely love shouldn’t be this hard. While Faith considers whether divorce is the only answer to their issues, tragedy strikes. With her life in the balance, she finds that the one she has been shutting out may be the very one she cannot bear to lose.

Kellie Coates Gilbert takes you on an emotional roller coaster as she weaves together unexpected trial, self-discovery, and forgiveness in this profoundly honest portrait of the tensions that can break a marriage–and the ultimate healing power of love.

My thoughts:

I loved Kellie’s first two books and couldn’t wait to read this one. A Reason to Stay was another great book by Kellie.

She developed characters and a storyline that will capture your heart and mind.

Faith is a tough cookie. She is very driven by her work and right away I could see the problems that would arise in her relationship to Geary if things didn’t change with her.

Kellie did a great job hiding and revealing Faith’s past. Even though Faith is tough she is still very likeable because you know she is hurt in someway and covering up for that and working way to hard to prove something.

If you haven’t read anything by Kellie yet this is a great one.
