Forever With You

Forever With You
Christy & Todd: The Married Years Book 1
Robin Jones Gunn
Christy is working at a bookstore and Todd is the youth pastor at a local church. But when difficulties began hitting them all at once they must each find their own path through faith and trust. They learn that sometimes when they ask for things, God gives it to them in unexpected ways.

It has been years since I read the books about Christy and Todd. But this book would work okay as a stand alone. There were references to friends and situations from the previous books, but it wasn't confusing. The book was more about dealing with difficult situations through a christian perspective than an actual story. The story takes place over a couple of months. The main theme is learning to trust and have faith in God. The characters felt true to the previous books, but seemed to be lacking in maturity. I'm not sure if this is because they still have the same voice as the books written for teens or not. My overall feeling when I finished was that this was a sweet beginning to the series. It's a book that I'll let my daughter read in the future. But since I'm not really a fan of the YA genre, I'll be stick with this authors other books.

I received this book free of charge from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
