Description

A last ditch effort to save her marriage

Fresh out of college, Alexandra Conklin said "I do" to a handsome young minister. They filed for divorce less than a year later, proceedings they halted when Alex learned she was pregnant. Twenty years later, Hunter’s ministry is thriving while Alex struggles to put a happy face on her husband’s daily neglect. What choice does she have? None until those forgotten divorce papers surface — valid, filed, and legal. 

A man on a mission

Throughout the twenty years of his ministry, Hunter Conklin has given everything — his time, his attention, his passion — to the pursuit of what God called him to do, leaving nothing but the leftovers for the most important people in his life. When his wife moves out, he’s forced to examine his life. What he finds is a home where he’s more visitor than occupant, children who rarely see him outside the church, and a wife who smiles to hide her loneliness. Is this what God had in mind for him…for his family?

Pastors are people, too.

With a youthful misunderstanding hanging over their heads and pressure from their congregation mounting, Alex and Hunter scramble to find a balance between her expectations and his priorities before everything they’ve worked for crumbles to dust at their feet.

Awesome life lesson

Wonderful listening experience. I'll say it again - I love this narrator. Just wow.
Alex & Hunter's story is one I would make mandatory for every couple in ministry - on how to prevent your marriage from crashing and burning slowly and on finding a good balance between family and work (church) responsibilities. Whether a couple is considering going into ministry, has started their pastoral carrier or has been in ministry for more than 2 decades as pastor, this would be a good warning/reminder to be humble, communicate clearly and avoid more problems by not having secrets and working on surprises (not everyone likes surprises).
I'll be listening to this story - and 4 other installments of this authors in this series - again. And again. Audio books make good companions throughout the day - whether you are going for a walk, puttering around the kitchen or patio/garden, driving... etc. Grateful for modern technology.

I've never been more emotionally connected.

As I started Alex I already knew it would be great. That's because I'd already read all in the collection before. But I was unprepared for the emotional journey I was about to go through. I've never felt more emotionally connected to a story. I wept as the Story of Alex unfolded. The timing of this story in my life was God ordained to say the least. I was challenged encouraged and reminded of God's faithfulness! Sharon writes in such a way that you feel like your part of the story and now I feel like I'm going to miss a Group of fictional friends! 😁

Great book

I have really enjoyed this series and watching these "sisters"grow. They were there for each other even when they could not share exactly what was going on. Alex had to work around her hurt and take the love and caring from her friends even though she could not share all what was going on. I was glad to see that it was not all good and that they still worked around things instead of giving up.
I received a copy to listen to , the review is mine.
