Tate has an amazing ability to put difficult but realistic emotions on paper and show the reader the redeeming love of God in the process. Her characters are easy to identify with and Tate uses them to show the many meanings of faithfulness.
Cydney has always wanted to get married and have children, yet now that she’s reached the age of 40 and is still single, she wonders if she heard God correctly. Dana has a wonderful marriage, but discovers her husband is having an affair. Phyllis doesn’t know whether to trust God anymore after years of unanswered prayers. What can these friends learn from each other about being faithful? (THOMAS NELSON, Sep., 336 pp., $14.99)
