Softly and Tenderly

 Maybe out there in the country she could catch her breath, learn to breathe again.   Happily married and owner of two successful boutiques, Jade longs to begin a family with her husband, Max. But when she discovers that Max has an illegitimate son—who he wants her to help raise— Jade’s life is turned upside down.

She flees to her childhood home, a rambling Iowa farmhouse, with enough room to breathe. There—while her mother’s health grows fragile, and the tug of her first love grows stronger—Jade begins to question everything she thought she knew about family, love, and motherhood. In the wide-open landscape, Jade begins to see a future that doesn’t rest on the power of her past but in the goodness of God's tender mercies.

I didn't know what to expect when I chose Softly and Tenderly by Sara Evans and Rachel Hauck.  After reading a couple of chapters, I had to close the book. I just did not like it! After reading another book, I came back to Softly and Tenderly and still could not get into the book.

I really thought that the book would go the route with Jade digging deeper into her faith with all the problems she and her family faced. Instead Jade's faith was put on the back burner while she dealt with the family problems. There's really not enough Christianity in the book, for it to be called a Christian fiction. It's a clean, easy read.

I received this book from Book Sneeze for free in return for my honest opinion.
