Published by Thomas Nelson and provided free from BookSneeze and NetGalley for review, “Need You Now” by Beth Wiseman is a work of fiction that feels real. The story written from each character’s perspective shows their relationship with God and those around them. It is a story that could be about anyone’s family. The characters are enjoyable and fun to get to know. As with life, tissues are at times necessary while reading this touching family’s story.

Brad and Darlene move their family (Chad, Grace and Ansley) from Houston to a small town called Round Top. Hopefully this will provide their children better focus on what is important in life and help them stay strong in the face of the adversarial teenage years. Secrets, feelings of betrayal, lies and loss cause this family to re-evaluate their relationships with each other and with God. Learning forgiveness is the hard lesson of the day.

I must say my favorite character of this book is Skylar, a friend of Grace’s from school. She reminds us that it is easy to judge someone by their looks but we must look beyond the obvious to see who people really are. She is a wonderful friend that any of us would enjoy knowing.

    Nice review. I really enjoyed this book as well. All of Beth Wiseman’s prior books were Amish fiction, which I loved. But I like this one too! She writes fearlessly with the stresses and struggles that are an inevitable part of a marriage and raising children–yet offers hope in the face of those challenges. She doesn’t shy away from letting the characters in this book face some problems and difficult questions. I think many readers will be able to relate to this book, and be comforted by the fact that they are not the only ones who struggle.
