Book Review: The Face of the Earth


Book Description:
What if she never came home . . . ?When Mitchell Brannon’s beloved wife sets off for home after a conference, he has no idea that his life is about to change forever. Mitch returns from work early that evening, surprised that Jill’s car isn’t in the garage. But her voice on the answering machine makes him smile. “Hey, babe, I’m just now checking out of the hotel, but I’ll stop and pick up something for dinner. Love you.” Hours later, Jill still hasn’t returned, and Mitch’s irritation turns to dread.

When the police come up empty, Mitch enlists the help of their next-door neighbor, Jill’s best friend, Shelley, to help search. As hours turn into days and days into weeks, Mitch and Shelley’s friendship grows ever closer—and decidedly more complicated. Every lead seems to be a dead end, and Mitch wonders how he can honor the vows he made to a woman who has seemingly disappeared from the face of the earth.

My Review:

Have you ever wondered what it might be like if someone you loved just seemed to disappear from the face of the earth?  That’s what happened with Mitch.  His wife just seemed to disappear.  She never came home from a work conference.  He spent months, almost an entre year continuing to look for her.  Each time the phone would ring, he would wondr if it might be her.  This was an amazing novel of faith and love.  It deals with what it means to be true to your vows, in good times and in bad and what it means to rely on God  for your strength and truth.  The book kept my attention throughout and the characters, I felt like I had known for a long time.  It is a wonderful love story and I would highly recommened this book to you if you enjoy reading Christian fiction.  I am positive you will not be disappointed by the outcome.  I have read books by this author before and she is truly an amazing fiction writer.

I receive a  complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House publishers.  I was not obligated to write a positve review.  The opinions in this review are my own.
