I have this bad habit of reading these books I'm supposed to review so early that I can't remember very well how I liked them by the time the review comes around. This was one of those books that sounded intriguing. I'm always afraid that books that are sentimental or sad will just depress me, but this one didn't. It was interesting to explore the world of a married couple who once loved each other so much, coming to the crossroads of whether they will stay together. This book delves deeply into what goes on in the mind of a young woman who hasn't been able to become a mother. This is something I've never experienced but I feel that it gave me more insight into how I can help those that do.
This book was a sweet, interesting story that I would definitely recommend.
Book: If Tomorrow Never Comes
Childhood sweethearts Kinna and Jimmy Henley had simple dreams—marriage, children, a house by the sea… Everything they needed for happily ever after. What they didn’t plan on was years of infertility, stealing those dreams, crushing their hopes.
Now, all that’s left is the memory of young love, and the desperate need for a child to erase the pain. Until…
When Kinna rescues an elderly woman from the sea, the threads of the past, present, and future weave together to reveal the wonder of one final hope. One final chance to follow not their dreams, but God’s plan.
Can they embrace the redemptive power of love before it’s too late? Or will their love be washed away like the castles they once built upon the sand?
