Inspiring Glimpse of Faith & Hope | A Fragile Hope by Cynthia Ruchti

ABOUT THE BOOK

Hope grows when seeds are plantedeven in the muddy middle of life.

Josiah Chamberlain's life's work revolves around repairing other people's marriages. When his own is threatened by his wife's unexplained distance, and then threatened further when she's unexpectedly plunged into an unending fog, Josiah finds his expertise, quick wit and clever quips are no match for a relationship that is clearly broken.

Feeling betrayed, confused, and ill-equipped for a crisis this crippling, he reexamines everything he knows about the fragility of hope and the strength of his faith and love. Love seems to have failed him. Will what's left of his faith fail him, too? Or will it be the one thing that holds him together and sears through the impenetrable wall that separates them?


MY REVIEW

Cynthia Ruchti writes beautifully moving stories, full of inspiring glimpses of hope and faith, and her newest novel A Fragile Hope is a perfect example. As Josiah Chamberlain faces the reality of the state of his marriage, Ruchti takes him and the rest of the characters (and her readers, of course) on an emotional journey both heartbreaking and uplifting. She explores brokenness and healing and delivers a message to ponder long after reading the last page of A Fragile Hope. It’s an excellent read for fans of contemporary fiction, and I recommend it.
