Cover of Faith Departed by Elizabeth Maddrey.I really enjoyed reading Faith Departed by Elizabeth Maddrey. It is about twin sisters named June and July who are both trying to start families and having a hard time of it.

Anyone who has ever wanted a baby and couldn’t have one or just had a lot of trouble getting pregnant will feel a bond with these characters. Including the men.

It isn’t just women who want families and lots of us women tent to forget the fathers when it comes to pregnancy and childbirth.

I loved that this story includes the points of view of the husbands as well as the wives.

It is a book about faith as well and how trials can help us grow.

About the book:

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?

About the Author:

Picture of author Elizabeth Maddrey.Elizabeth Maddrey began writing stories as soon as she could form the letters properly and has never looked back. Though her practical nature and love of math and organization steered her into computer science for college and graduate school, she has always had one or more stories in progress to occupy her free time. When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth is a voracious consumer of books and has mastered the art of reading while undertaking just about any other activity. She loves to write about Christians who struggle through their lives, dealing with sin and receiving God’s grace.

 

Elizabeth lives in the suburbs of Washington D.C. with her husband and their two incredibly active little boys. She invites you to interact with her at her website www.ElizabethMaddrey.com or on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/ElizabethMaddrey.
