I rented the movie of the same name with great anticipation & started to watch it, but found myself unhappy with how Hollywood chose to tell the story. There was no disappointment whatsoever with the book, however, as it told the story of Kim & Krickitt Carpenter. Throughout the chapters there were references to the couple's Christian faith & how it sustained them through a severe ordeal. It shows what it means to take one's marriage vows seriously & provides a sterling example of what perseverance through the tough times is all about. I would highly recommend this book for the story it tells as well as lessons it can teach about faith in God, faithfulness in marriage & navigating through difficult times in life.
