Litfuse Publicity and Abingdon Press sent me a copy of Cynthia Ruchti’s latest book, A Fragile Hope, in exchange for my honest opinion.
If you have followed this blog for any amount of time, by now you know I love everything Ruchti writes. A Fragile Hope did not disappoint. As always her character development is strong and believable. You discover the story along with the characters. There is no sudden swoop in where God makes all things right (like I find any many Christian fiction books that I do not review because they grate on my last nerve). The consequences of broken people living in a broken world come through the pages with all the hope of redemption and healing Christ offers. There is nothing sappy about her writing. Instead, it is full of characters that come to life on the pages. Characters that it’s hard to believe are only fictional beings limited to these pages.
I both sympathized with and wanted to slap the main character of A Fragile Hope as he wrestled with his feelings of betrayal and realizations of fault.
If you have not yet read anything by Cynthia Ruchti you are missing out. Start with A Fragile Hope and then pick up one of my other favorites today as well! Come back and tell me what you thought.
When your life’s work revolves around repairing other people’s marriages, what happens when your own marriage begins to fall apart? Find out what happens to Josiah Chamberlain in Cynthia Ruchti’s new book, A Fragile Hope. Feeling betrayed, confused, and ill-equipped for a crisis this crippling, he reexamines everything he knows about the fragility of hope and the strength of his faith and love. Love seems to have failed him. Will what’s left of his faith fail him, too? Or will it be the one thing that holds him together and sears through the impenetrable wall that separates them?
