Love is a Flame:
Stories of what happens when love is rekindled,
compiled by James Stuart Bell with forward by Gary Chapman
Bethany House Publishers

This book is a compilation of over 40 short stories about marriages that are on the rocks or at least in danger of being there, but through prayer, and work, they are rekindled. Most of the stories are only 4 to 7 pages long, so reading this book can be done in short spurts, without losing your place.  It gives some good strategies on how to keep your marriage fresh, or how to bring back the feelings you probably had when you were first married. 

I really think that before you are too many stories into the book, you'l recognise some aspects of your own marriage, and you can then compare how you handled your crisis, as opposed to how the person writing their story, handled theirs. 

Recommended reading for anyone whose marriage may be struggling.

I was given a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers, to read and review.  I received no other compensation for my review.
The opinions expressed here are my own.
