Book Review ~ Faithful, Kim Cash Tate

I love good books, you know that, but when it comes to great books I want to shout from the rooftops and tell everyone I know about them.

That's what this book, Faithful, is...a great book!

Just last week I received a package from Women of Faith (and y'all know how much I big puffy heart Women of Faith) with two books inside.  Squeallll...books, Women of Faith, woohoo, that was a great day!

Any who, one of the books immediately caught my eye and that was this one, Faithful, by Kim Cash Tate.  I love the cover, then when I flipped it over and read the back I knew that I had to read this book as soon as there was a crack in my schedule.

The opportunity came Friday evening when everything else in Mel's World was settled a bit, so I grabbed my coffee and book then went out back to our sweet little quiet room.  I was absolutely riveted.  

Page after page I was more deeply invested into the characters, three girlfriends and the commitments they made to God, the highs and lows of sticking with those commitments and the bumpy road along the way.

There were times when I giggled to myself while reading it, times when I was plain ole mad and other times when I just sat there and cried.  This book hit just about every emotion I had but not for any other reason that it could be any one of our lives or our friends lives.

Here's what the back of the cover says;

Three life-long friends experience life-altering struggles. Will they find the strength to be faithful to the covenants they've made with God...and each other?

Cydney Sanders thought she knew God's plan for her life. She'd marry, have kids, and then snap her body back into shape with Tae Bo. But she's celebrating her fortieth birthday as the maid of honor at her little sister's wedding . . . and still single. Why would God give her this desire to marry, but no husband? And why is her life suddenly complicated by the best man-who's the opposite of what she wants in a husband?

Cydney's best friend Dana has the perfect marriage. But when Dana discovers her husband's affair, her world goes into a tailspin. And Phyllis is out of hope after six years of unanswered prayers for her husband to find faith. When she runs into an old friend who is the Christian man she longs for, she's faced with an overwhelming choice.  

With life falling apart around them, can they trust God like never before?
I haven't started the other book that came in my little package (Angel Song by Sheila Walsh & Kathryn Cushman) yet, but I can't wait to see where the pages of that book takes me.

Right now I already have two or three of my girlfriends that I am thinking of sharing Faithful with.  I can't wait to see what they think of it so we can chat about it.  There are so many things in this book that could lead to some really amazing discussion time.

If you are looking for a great Christian Fiction book this fall, then Faithful is exactly what you are looking for!  

What are some Christian Fiction books you are reading right now?  

I'd love to hear, I'm always looking for great books!
