Devotion - eBook
Current yet filled with Hope
I received this book for review and my honest opinion from bookfun.org. Buy the book from CBD.
Kellen married the woman of his dreams. Juliet was a beautiful
woman and also beautiful on the inside. This marriage was solid and built on Christian values. Kellen said he did not need anyone but his wife, so how did things change?
Kellen was a Christian music agent. He dealt with both male and female singers. He was always on the lookout for new talent. When approached to hear a certain female, he went. He had worked with dozens of beautiful women in the music field. When he signed them on as agents he propelled them toward a professional and monetary success.
Juliet was busy serving and helping the underprivileged. She loved Kellen with all her heart. She knew that Kellen worked with beautiful female singers all the time. This had never been a concern for her. Why did this one seem to occupy more of his time? What is happening with this Chloe?
They were a childless couple although they wanted children. Trying to have a child had not been successful.
Will they finally have a child?
What happens when this wonderful couple suddenly encounters a threat to their marriage?
Devotion is a story of this marriage that will either crash and survive. What happens and the solution, if any, is what the book is about.
I thought the book was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I received this book free from bookfun.org in exchange for my review, and was pleasantly surprised. The book's title and photo gave no clue as to its contents, so it did not entice me. This book went to the "raw" part of your feelings. Without revealing the story, I can say that it gave such detail as to both the husband and wife's feelings throughout the angst that they battled, prior to the "act of betrayal", during the commitment of the act, and afterward. I was able to feel the exact feelings (in my head) and understand what they both were experiencing. It surprised me to see an author's detailed portrayal of going to "places" within oneself where nobody wants to go, and how a person is able to "heal", only possible through an abiding faith. I gave this book 4 stars due to the distraction I experienced by faulty grammar, which sometimes took me "off course", mentally. I recommend this book to every married couple, or previously married couple, as it is so "relatable".

Forgiveness is not as easy as we want it to be and one wrong action can make forgiveness so much harder to surrender too. This Book not only gives tools to really look into the situation and season that your marriage is in. It also give you the tools and hope to fins a place of Devotion to yourself , your spouse and above all your God. This book is worth the additional time and effort needed to read with or at the same time as your spouse. Take the leap, bo not let evil and temptation take away for the Love that God wants for you in your marriage. Make a choice of a lifetime of Devotion to each other through your heavenly Father. I was told once what doesn't bend breaks - Marianne Evans shows us how God made us stronger than we image, that we can bend more that we ever thought without breaking, for Sin will not be victorious over Love.

Wow! What a great book! Marianne Evans hits a very important issue that could arrive in any marriage. She really made this story seemed true-to-life. This book is a about a couple, Kellen and Juliet. They have a "snag" in their marriage and it tells about what they do to resolve this issue. Although this is a fiction book, it holds so much true-to-life issues. It shows the power of forgiveness and how hard forgiveness really is. This book had me in tears near the end. I would recommend this book to anyone especially couples as these issues could happen in your marriage.
