From the back cover:
He thought he’d found the thrill of his life; she, the romance she hadn’t dared to hope for. Falling in love had been easy. Being married? Totally different story.
Married within a year of meeting, Ethan and Brandi add a foster daughter to their newly established family. Their story is enchanting—inspiring. Except when the fairytale fails. The stresses of unmet expectations and wounds from their pasts knife into their marriage, severing what they believed would be forever.
Hope for a broken marriage. Healing for their wounded spirits. It would take both to find evergreen. Are they brave enough to try?
About the author:
Jennifer Rodewald/J. Rodes lives on the wide plains somewhere near the middle of Nowhere. A coffee addict, pickleball enthusiast, and storyteller, she also wears the hats of mom, teacher, and friend. Mostly, she loves Jesus and wants to see others fall in love with Him too.
No one ever said life would be easy. Especially in marriage.
Brandi and Ethan thought they’d found their happily-ever-after — and then they went on their honeymoon. As sometimes happens, reality hit hard. Finding Evergreen tackles our not-so-perfect reality head-on. When our hopes are dashed, can we find the grace to move forward? For Brandi and Ethan, there’s just not an easy answer.
With stubbornly realistic characters, Finding Evergreen braves the harsh world and offers a glimpse of hope for those battling struggles of their own.
The writing style is fresh and youthful, dusted with the lingo of the snowboarding world the characters dwell in.
If you enjoy gritty, realistic fiction or are looking for a story that goes much deeper than a simple boy-meets-girl romance, you’ll want to meet Brandi and Ethan. Finding Evergreen is the third book in the Grace Revealed series. You can follow the storyline without reading the previous two, but since it is a continuing story, reading them in order would add depth to your understanding.
