Cynthia Ruchti's 'A Fragile Hope' Blog Tour and Giveaway



 31384069



About the book:
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 Thoughts
 So I'll be honest it saying this simply was not the book for me. I kept reading and waiting to see what would happen, so the drama within the book kept me going. I just had a hard time figuring out the characters and what the author's point was. I feel like the ending was rushed and tied up in a bow. I liked to see the difficulty in the marriage because it isn't easy but I just felt like the book was missing something. I am sure others might feel different but this book left me feeling empty and depressed. 

Three stars.
