A Fragile Hope
by Cynthia Ruchti
Hope grows when seeds are planted---even in the muddy middle of life.
Josiah Chamberlain's life's work revolves around repairing other people's marriages. When his own is threatened by his wife's unexplained distance, and then threatened further when she's unexpectedly plunged into an unending fog, Josiah finds 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 reexamines 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?
My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, A FRAGILE HOPE is a poignant contemporary fiction novel that rips the heart out while its still beating. It starts in the woman's point of view, so you know *part* of the story, but then switches to the man's point of view so you go through the trauma of his thoughts as he wrestles with only what he *knows*. I wanted to pull him near and say, "No, honey, it's not what you think."
The story is heartbreaking, but could be reality. Readers that are looking for a feel-good story need to look further. Readers who want a reality based drama will be delighted by this book.
Hard-core. Gritty. Hard-hitting. Emotional.
Cynthia Ruchti pens books that will knock you for a loop and then keeps hitting. A book that stays in your thoughts long after you close the last page.
