A Reason to Stay by Kellie Coates Gilbert

About the Book
Sometimes the thing that keeps us from making the wrong choice is the one thing we can't control.

As an investigative reporter and the host of her own TV talk show, Faith Marin works to expose the truth for her viewers. But in her personal life, she's anchored her world with firm boundaries in order to hide a family history she'd like to forget. By contrast, her husband Geary's life is an open book. An easygoing pro bass fisherman, Geary is the ultimate family man – and his overbearing relatives don't know the meaning of boundaries.

Faith and Geary haven't been married long when their differences start to derail their tender relationship. Surely love shouldn't be this hard. While Faith considers whether divorce is the only answer to their issues, tragedy strikes. With her life in the balance, she finds that the one she has been shutting out may be the very one she cannot bear to lose.

Kellie Coates Gilbert takes you on an emotional roller coaster as she weaves together unexpected trial, self-discovery, and forgiveness in this profoundly honest portrait of the tensions that can break a marriage – and the ultimate healing power of love.

The third book in the Texas Gold series (though it can easily be read on its own, I think), A Reason to Stay by Kellie Coates Gilbert tells an emotionally-charged story about married couple Faith and Geary. As these two characters navigate their relationship, challenged by their very different personalities and a particularly tragic incident, Gilbert’s story comes to life with realistic clarity and offers an inspiring picture of allowing God to be in control. For fans of contemporary fiction looking for a great and enjoyable read, I definitely recommend A Reason to Stay.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of A Reason to Stay and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
