Need You Now by Beth Wiseman

Published by Thomas Nelson

When one of their children got into trouble in Houston, Brad and Darlene Henderson moved their family to Round Top Texas, to the house that had been Darlene's grandparents. They thought out in the country, drugs and the fast crowd wouldn't be a problem.  Darlene went to work in a private school for autistic and handicapped children, and fell in love with the job and the little girl she was teaching.
When they discovered Grace, their older daughter had a cutting problem, Darlene and Brad disagreed in how to handle things, and Darlene quit her job, to be home.

For some reason, I find writing the review for this book, tougher than usual.  It is a good book, but a lot is going on in it, which is central to the story.   I really enjoyed the way the story wound around, and cried right along with Darlene at many points.

I recieved this book from BookSneeze to read and review.  I receive no other compensation.  I am not required to give a favorable review.  All opinions expressed here are my own.

Nice review. I really enjoyed this book as well. Beth Wiseman writes fearlessly with the stresses and struggles that are an inevitable part of a marriage and raising children--yet offers hope in the face of those challenges. She doesn't shy away from letting the characters in this book face some problems and difficult questions. I think many readers will be able to relate to this book, and be comforted by the fact that they are not the only ones who struggle.
