A VOW TO CHERISH
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
When Ellen Brighton begins to act strangely, she brushes it off as stress or a reaction to her recent empty nest. At 46, Ellen and her husband, John, look forward to time to themselves now that their children are grown. But Ellen continues her odd behavior, even forgetting everyday things. Tests reveal a stunning diagnosis
John's orderly world turns upside down. The next months and years bring difficult decisions and emotional turmoil. Wouldn't he naturally turn to another woman since Ellen doesn't even recognize him?
Raney has updated this powerful novel for rerelease. John's trials are tangible, and the reader can identify with his struggles. The overall theme of keeping your vows is completely relevant in this era of throw-away values. Although the plot isn't terribly complex, readers will relate emotionally to the subject.
