THE SKY BENEATH MY FEET
At the same time funny and meaningful, this is a beautiful gem. It will cause readers to think about expectations and what it means to truly fulfill the call God has placed in their lives. The characters shine from the page with amazing insight and reminders about what’s important.
Beth has learned how to balance her role as a pastor’s wife in a large church with her family obligations. When her husband Rick decides to take a month-long vacation, Beth sees this as the ideal time for them to reconnect as a couple and as a family. Yet Rick (and God) seem to have other plans. Rick holes up in the backyard shed waiting to hear from God — what is Beth to do? When she feels tugged to be involved in more outreach, will she respond? (THOMAS NELSON, Mar., 320 pp., $15.99)
