A FRAGILE HOPE
Where does a relationship expert turn when his wife leaves him and he can't explain why?
Josiah Chamberlain's life work revolves around repairing people's marriages. When his own is threatened by his wife's unexplained distance -- and then threatened further she's unexpectedly plunged into an unending fog -- Josiah finds that 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 re-examines 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?
What a profoundly moving story! A Fragile Hope took me by surprise as it led me in a direction I wasn't expecting. Filled with raw emotions and the vulnerability of being human, Ruchti takes her characters (and readers) on an impactful journey of discovery. Forgiveness. Grace. Hope. The impact faith can have on every aspect of your life.
Truthfully, I didn't like Josiah very much in the beginning. Self-absorbed, egotistical, he has unconsciously elevated himself above his wife and Karin naturally struggles with being taken for-granted. And then his world implodes and emotions are stripped bare. Josiah has to re-evaluate everything he thought he knew and in the process he grows into a deeper understanding of what love really is.
