From This Day Forward

Christian Music agent Kellen Rossiter has everything he ever wanted: A-list clients from coast to coast, a loving wife who honors and respects him, and a faith life that’s never wavered—until now.

Juliet Rossiter has the perfect life: a rewarding schedule serving the underprivileged, a husband who loves her as Christ loved the church, and a blessed future as a mother—at least that's what she thinks.

For Better or Worse

But what happens when their rock-solid marriage begins to crumble under the weight of an unexpected and powerful temptation? How does love survive when its foundation is shaken?

'Til Death Do Us Part

When human frailty and the allure of sin deal a harsh blow to their relationship, it will take more than love to mend the shattered trust and heartbreak. It will take a lifetime of devotion.

Marianne Evans' novel Devotion is rich on so many levels.

First, it's a darn good story that kept me reading until I was finished.

Second, it's full of hope and promise and a warning to all couples who might have grown complacent in their relationship.

Kellen and Juliet have it all--their love, their church, their home. Until one day temptation rears it's ugly head and everything they thought they believed in becomes shattered. Ms. Evans takes the reader through the pain of realizing one you trusted completely in is fallible. And, she also takes you through the process of redemption and the struggles both Kellen and Juliet face in trying to put the pieces of their marriage together again.

Kudos to Marianne Evans for an enthralling and powerful story of love and forgiveness.

BN - thanks for the stop-by!! Good luck in the drawing!!

Eileen, Christian with an edge is a good moniker, but I always stay within the Christian World View - thing is, I'm all about reality - and I'm so glad you picked that up from the excerpt and blurb! Blessings!!
