"Need You Now" by Beth Wiseman

Need You Now by Beth Wiseman was written to help struggling families. Brad and Darlene moved to the country to get their teenage son, Chad, away from the bad influence of his city friends. When Darlene befriends her neighbor, Layla, a divorced woman who is bitter at God for letting her daughter die, through her friendship Layla returns to faith in God while Darlene’s falters. Brad’s and Darlene’s happy Christian family runs into a crisis when they discover their oldest daughter, Grace, cutting herself. Fortunately, the daughter has a Christian friend who convinces her to get counseling. Brad and Darlene both love their daughter but have different ideas as to how to deal with her cutting which drives a wedge between them. Problems start to snowball in the marriage when communication breaks down and Darlene is faced with temptation of infidelity and believes her husband is having an affair. Of course, this being Christian fiction, it has a happy ending.

This is a good book about friendship and how God is our best friend of all. It was realistic in that it showed Christian families have problems too. If you like stories about families and parenting, I highly recommend this one.
