A Reason To Stay by Kellie Coates Gilbert 


Back of book: 

As the host of her own television news show, Faith Marin works to expose the truth for her viewers. But in her personal life, she’s anchored her world with firm boundaries in order to hide a family history she’d like to forget. Her pro bass fisherman husband Geary’s life is an open book, and unfortunately his busybody family doesn’t know the meaning of boundaries. Deception and crippling differences soon derail their tender relationship, leading Faith to believe her only option is to end the marriage. But while divorce papers sit on her desk waiting to be signed, tragedy strikes and her heartrending decision is interrupted. With her life in the balance, Faith finds that the one she has been shutting out may be the very one she cannot bear to lose.
Kellie Coates Gilbert takes readers on an emotional roller coaster as she weaves themes of unexpected trial, self-discovery, and forgiveness in this profoundly honest portrait of the tensions that can break a marriage–and the ultimate healing power of love.

4/5 stars  

My review: 

There’s no need to fix something that isn’t broken.”
That’s the very first line in this book. 
“Sometimes broken things get fixed.”
That’s the very last line in this book. 
A Reason To Stay is a story of love, hope, trial, & faith. Faith Marin has a troubled childhood, a very successful career, and a broken marriage. She is completely broken, and despite the fact that she desperately wants to be cherished, she is scared to allow someone in that deep. This is such a powerful story of how God can fix any broken thing. The author uses her amazing writing to captivate the reader with every single word. An honest and true story of a broken women’s life & how love transformed it. 
Let me just talk about the main make character, Geary Marin. He is so incredible! The way he loves faith & shows his love to her, really reminds me of how God loves us. The author created such a perfect husband for this story! Such an emotional story! 

I was sent this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review. 🙂
