I love most of her books if you like this novel you will love a rose by the door. Deborah Bedford is a very talented author she has away of taking you on a journey with the characters. Before you know it you will be laughing, crying and just on the edge of your set wanting to see what happens.

Infidelity swept under a rug, all in the name of forgiveness! 2 Feb 2014
By The HEA Junkie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Why I hated this book?

Let's see...

- David's infidelity was never addressed.
- David spent his time blaming his wife for not forgiving him fast enough when his new-found daughter's life was hanging in the balance.
- I'm sorry but David never did apologize for his actions. I do not feel that he loved Abby at all. Not once did I feel he regretted what he did. He was defensive and stubborn. I wish, Abby had just divorced him. I'm all for forgiveness and all that but what's forgiveness without repentance? It's empty and shallow.
- All these church people they call friends pressuring Abby to forgive him already because it was the Christian thing to do. Please? All the posturing and hypocrisy was nauseating.
- The other woman not regretting what she did, meeting David without the wife's knowledge. I'm sorry but I have no sympathy for her.
- Abby apologizing to David for his affair. LOL! Really? David didn't deign Abby worthy of his apology because she should have just trusted him and moved on. It's laughable.

This book could have been great if not for those things. It's all about love and forgiveness. Christian books, at least this one, is trying to show me that but it failed to connect because it's one-sided and manipulative. Her husband had an affair while the wife was pregnant and was worried and scared while adjusting to being a mother. It was okay for feel angry and to take time to come to terms with her husband's infidelity, instead, the author made Abby a pariah for not "forgiving" her husband and for being bitter.

Gawd, do Christian authors hate women that much that they write about them as if they don't deserve an ounce of pride and self-respect? That they don't deserve to feel indignation?

If infidelity is okay with you, this is your book! 9 Nov 2005
By Just another Stephanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
David and Abby Treasure (niiiiiice fake last name), along with their son Braden, are the perfect Christian family. Until, that is, David's affair from 9 years ago comes back to haunt them. Turns out his mistress gave birth to his child and never told him. Oops. And of course, now the illegitimate daughter is dying of cancer and needs a bone marrow transplant, and he has to tell his wife and bring all sorts of loverly turmoil into his family. Yada yada yada, we've all heard this story a zillion times before.

I was pretty irritated by this book. Abby gets angry at David, rightly so, and he acts like a creep toward her. He doesn't get that because he went out acting like a manwhore, he's to blame. But what grossed me out was when Abby tells him that the affair was partly HER fault, that she pushed him away, even though he cheated on her while she was not only pregnant, but just after giving birth to their son. Nice guy there. She forgives him (this is a Christian novel, and the author seems set on the fact that divorce is never an option, even if your significant other goes around acting like a workaholic prostitute), and of course, everyone lives happily ever after.

I don't agree. I think that she was making faith out to be the only remedy for a marriage that was in desperate need of a lot of therapy (faith never hurts, of course, but God helps those who help themselves). I felt almost as though the author looked down on anyone who would dare divorce over something so little as infidelity. This made me feel small. Didn't care for that.

Disappointing 2 Jan 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author is very sloppy with details, dates, vehicles, events are not consistent - she needs an editor!
The husband David claims to be a Christian and wants to do what the Lord wants, but he's sneaking around talking to his ex-mistress, he never tells the full truth to his wife, he never apologizes when first revealing his adultery or at the end.
This is supposed to be a Christian family but David never prayed once, he didn't try to bring healing to his wife for the pain he caused, he never admitted he was wrong and was prideful and he never confessed to God or his wife his adultery.
This story teaches that women must make the first move, take all the steps to reconcilliation and make all the sacrifices in an relationship - while allowing men to be jerks.
The author obviously knows nothing about marriage problems and this book that could have taught the true meaning of healing a marriage - instead disappoints...
I am always disappointed when Christian fiction writers don't take the responsibility to ... 6 Oct 2014
By Wendy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am always disappointed when Christian fiction writers don't take the responsibility to give sound Christian advice in their work. There were so many things wrong with this "Christian" story. Since when should a Christian man not take responsibility when he cheats on his wife. Since when should a women who has been cheated on say "It was my fault". Since when should a Christian married man sneak into the driveway at night and talk with another woman ...and it be okay. I could go on and on about all the ungodly actions of the husband; and the twisted ideas and responses on the wife. I would never recommend this book to a women who is facing infidelity in her marriage.

Following God isn't about obeying rules, it's about passion 2 Oct 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This author is fast becoming one of my favorites. She does not gloss over the pain and betrayal of finding out that your husband has had an affair. In fact, she takes the care to linger on all of those feelings and make sure that they ring true. My husband and I went through a struggle like this six years ago and, when I began the story, I thought it would not equal what happens in real life. But I was wrong. Bedford writes of a wife who feels betrayed and alone and unloved. She writes of a woman who is willing to set an ultimatum and then love her husband even though she looks at him across the room and sees somebody she doesn't know. At the back of the book, there is a list of recommended reading for people struggling. This story is set in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It is fast paced, with even a scene of the husband climbing the Grand Teton, coming down in a storm. This book is good entertainment. It will also take you on a deep spiritual search. Is God someone who really wants to have a relationship with us? Can we do that, even when all our relationships around us fail?I believe so. I lived this story, and my marriage is stronger now than some of my friends who have good marriages. Look for other books by Deborah Bedford, including A Rose By The Door and The Story Jar. She doesn't pull any punches and she doesn't back away from tough, interesting issues.
