Facing The Dawn By Cynthia Ruchti GIVEAWAY!

 

While her humanitarian husband Liam has been digging wells in Africa, Mara Jacobs has been struggling. She knows she's supposed to feel a warm glow that her husband is nine time zones away, caring for widows and orphans. But the reality is that she is exhausted, working a demanding yet unrewarding job, trying to manage their three detention-prone kids, failing at her to-repair list, and fading like a garment left too long in the sun.

Then Liam's three-year absence turns into something more, changing everything and plunging her into a sunless grief. As Mara struggles to find her footing, she discovers that even when hope is tenuous, faith is fragile, and the future is unknown, we can be sure we are not forgotten . . . or unloved.

With emotionally evocative prose that tackles tough topics with tenderness and hope, award-winning author Cynthia Ruchti invites you on a journey of the heart you won't soon forget.

Cynthia Ruchti tells stories hemmed in hope through award-winning novels, novellas, devotionals, nonfiction, and through speaking events for women and writers. She makes potato corn chowder for her husband of more than four decades and loves on her three kids and six grandchildren. Cynthia recently retired from 33 years of writing and producing a daily radio broadcast called THE HEARTBEAT OF THE HOME, is past president of American Christian Fiction Writers, and now serves as ACFW's Professional Relations Liaison, all while working on more book projects in addition to the more than 30 already on the shelves. Her books have been honored with Selah Awards, Christian Retailing's BEST Awards, and Book of the Year awards from Golden Scrolls, as well as finalist or top honors in awards programs such as ACFW's Carol Awards, ForeWord Book Reviews Book of the Year, RT Reviews Book of the Year, Family Fiction's Book of the Year, Cascade Awards Book of the Year, Inspirational Readers' Choice, and the Christy Award, among others. You can connect with her at www.cynthiaruchti.com, at www.facebook.com/cynthiaruchtireaderpage, at www.twitter.com/cynthiaruchti, or in the kitchen, brewing herself another cup of tea.

My Thoughts...
I never had a book make me cry as much as this one did. Ruchti never disappoints  but you never know what you are going to read. She never writes the same story twice.
The pressure  to not sit and cry was so hard. The forgiving and  healing was so prevalent  on these pages.
I gave this book 4 stars and I recommend it.  
Grab your copy, you can thank me later.

    1. Denise, it's not for everyone, I do realize. But it may be for another time in your life if not now. Please know that although it tackles tough topics, it is also hope-filled and with more than a little humor. :)

  8. Cynthia Ruchti writes contemporary like no one else! It is not fluffy-feel good romance- more like meet you where life really happens. And she has a way with words and characters that makes you feel like you really meet them. And she has a great sense of humor.

  10. The Mary Reader is my very favorite reviewer and if she says “grab a copy” then
    a reader really should grab a copy. Besides, as The Mary Reader also wrote, “Rutchi never disappoints.” I adore Cynthia Rutchi’s books, and her “Afraid of the Light” is my favorite novel of 2020. Don’t miss that one either!
