Two years after the tragic, sudden death of her husband, Jillian Hamilton and her three children move to the quaint North Carolina town of Lakeview to begin rebuilding their lives. Jillian is seeking God's will but had not dared to dream that included a new man in her life. Everything changes once she meets her charming next-door neighbor, Matthew Morgan. Just as their plans for a bright future together begin to advance, Matt's unfaithful former wife returns and pleads for him to take her back.
Ruth Johnson thoughtfully weaves this narrative of marriage, unfaithfulness, divorce, loving again, forgiveness, and reconciliation. As one who has counseled, prayed for, and grieved with wives, husbands and children affected by divorce, Ruth dramatizes these experiences in a story in which the reader encounters raw emotions and grapples with the choices that are made. Is marriage sacred? Is divorce and remarriage a scriptural option? Where do forgiveness and reconciliation find their place in our culture of no-fault divorce where half of all marriages fail? Or Be Reconciled challenges the modern world's acceptance of divorce and provides a close look at a couple seeking to find their way in the murky waters of betrayal, faith, and forgiveness. You will be challenged as you consider God's design for marriage through Jillian, Matt, and Shannon's struggle to follow their conscience when it wars with their hearts.
