Gabe and Renee Roman are at THE BREAKING POINT (4.5) in their marriage. Things couldn't get worse—until their pickup goes over a cliff in an Oregon blizzard. From that moment, they have only each other to rely on if they want to get home alive. They're challenged by the raging elements, the rough terrain, a wild cougar and their own enmity. But the accident turns from disaster to miracle as they discover the true "breaking point"—learning to live for God and one another. Karen Ball writes a spiritual and emotional wringer, but the gain is worth the pain. Her characters are likable, even in their differences, because we see ourselves in them. (May, 362 pp., $12.99)
