A Side of Hope is a different book for me, as it features something that normally is not my favorite to read: A Married Couple Romance.
But obviously I put a fun spin on it. NO ONE knows they are still married, and they have been separated for 18 years.
So imagine the heroine’s surprise when her husband crashes her 40th birthday party… not to mention the surprise of all her guests who thought her a divorced single lady.
I liked this storyline for my HOPE book because everywhere I look, there are marriages falling apart, people losing hope of in restored relationships. So I thought to show how one relationship could BE restored, even after 18 years of hurt and separation.
Not all marriages will be restored. I get that. But HEARTS can be restored. BITTERNESS can be shed. FORGIVENESS can be given. And there is always hope for that when we put our hope in JESUS.
I thought I’d share my dedication with you all here today–as I’m sure some of YOU are who the book is dedicated to.
To all those who have, or will have, marriages that aren’t always easy.
(Which is pretty much all marriages everywhere!)
While circumstances may vary widely, the Bible tells us that three things remain.
And I’m here to tell you, hope is one of them, friends.
Grab hold of God’s hope and cling to it.
