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?
