    I have long admired Joni in her attitude and the way she faces overwhelming obstacles, so when this book came up for review I was happy to request it!

    Although Joni and Ken are facing much different and more difficult circumstance than most, there was so much I learned from them. And not just for the betterment of myself, but also my marriage. Their willingness to fight for their marriage, their commitment to love each other is very inspirational!

    I very much appreciated their willingness to give their readers a look at their personal lives and struggles, not many in the public eye are willing to be so transparent.

    I admire that their choice in marriage is to cling to Jesus to see them through every rocky time, and I am impressed with their openness to share the struggles within their marriage.

    I without a doubt will highly recommend this book, (and any book by Joni!) There is so much within these pages that inspires you, challenges you, and betters you!

    Joni & Ken is a beautiful, incredible story! I've enjoyed a number of Joni's books, but this one is the best. It is a powerful testimony of Jesus' ability to bring believers through times of great suffering & hardship. It is also wonderful encouragement for every Christian marriage.

    Most of all, the book points readers to Christ, giving Him all the glory!

    Joni & Ken: An Untold Love Story

    Ken Tada , Joni Eareckson Tada with Larry Libby

    Book Description: This is the true love story of Joni and her husband of 30 years, Ken Tada. A love story showing what it truly means for a man and a woman to live in love ... in sickness and in health. Even the honeymoon wasn't easy. Did Ken realize what he was getting into when he proposed to Joni, a quadriplegic woman? As their marriage years moved on, Ken became increasingly overwhelmed by the never-ceasing demands of caring for Joni, who begins to experience chronic, extreme, nightmarish pain. Ken sinks into depression, and the couple finds themselves on parallel tracks in life, married and living under the same roof but drifting apart emotionally. But as they fight for their marriage and find their way through the mazes of depression and pain, they wrap their two lives around their rock---Jesus. During Ken's denial of Joni's diagnosis, and Joni's thoughts of how wonderful a quick exit to heaven would be, they experience a personal visitation with the savior you will never forget.

    Review: I found this to be a great read. Easy to get absorbed in it and so well written that I could not put it down. It was like being let into a side of Joni that is hidden. I felt privileged to read this story. It was the first ebook that I made notes in and highlighted things. That says a lot since I was storming through this book rapidly. There were many things that made me cry and laugh. I enjoyed the frank honesty of their life together. So many things were precious like their meeting and how sweet Ken was during their dating and up to their wedding. He was more the unknown in this story and it made the man into a real person. I can honestly say that any disability makes a life interesting. I have thought a lot about pain and the changes that occur while married. There is no guarantee that the state of one's abilities will remain even young. It is more realistic to understand the in sickness and in health. I can empathize with the chronic pain and the cancer on top of it was a lot to wrestle with. I have often thought that the church has lost her understanding of suffering. To me this has been a struggle and found the resounding theme to be that of the Bible with life there is suffering. I am so appreciative to have the privilege to read and review this book. As the beginning promised this is the real love that is lost today. Not easy and not neatly packaged but definitely a love story of all time.

    I would like to thank Net Galley and Zondervan Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    This book spoke to my heart. I especially enjoyed reading Ken's side of the story and the truthfulness with which their story is told.
