A Fragile Hope by Cynthia Ruchti


A Fragile Hope (Abingdon Press, April 2017)
Hope grows when seeds are planted—even in the muddy middle of life.
Josiah Chamberlain’s life’s work revolves around repairing other people’s marriages. When his own is threatened by his wife’s unexplained distance, and then threatened further when she’s unexpectedly plunged into an unending fog, Josiah finds his expertise, quick wit and clever quips are no match for a relationship that is clearly broken.
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?

My opinion: This was another engaging and emotional read from one of the best authors on the affairs of the heart. With memorable characters this book was a great read. Josiah is a frustrating and at times arrogant character but it is nice watching him develop throughout the book and become a more likable character. I like how the story grew and developed really drawing one in keeping you engaged until the very end.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
