Need You Now Review


We as individuals, and collectively, as families, face troubles in our everyday lives. Some turn to each other and to God for support and guidance; others want to be isolated and hide from those who care most about them.

Beth Wiseman, perhaps best know for her Amish series, spins a tale around a family who relocates from Houston, Texas to a smaller, country community in an effort to find a more peaceful life. The reader is introduced to the Hendersons--Brad, Darlene, and their three children--who lead seemingly all-American lives. Aside from a cantankerous neighbor, Layla, life seems idyllic. As the story unfolds, the reader is privy to darker secrets. Middle child, Grace, is afraid of failing anyone. Holding herself to such high standards becomes too stressful and she begins to cut herself for relief. Oldest child, Chad, sneaks around and drinks. Taking a job outside of the home, Darlene begins to work with special needs children. Layla is a big supporter of the school and the two become closer. Their friendship brings Layla out of depression and the anger she feels toward God, which brings Layla and Darlene closer. Layla is able to return the favor when Darlene's marriage suffers a crisis. Through it all, the reader is encouraged to trust the Lord, to turn to God in times of trouble and to recognize that it is human nature and actions that are responsible for the bad things that happen in life.

Fans of Wiseman will not be disappointed. Need You Now is neither a sappy, romantic novel nor is it overly preachy. If you are a fan of action and adventure with romance interspersed, this is probably not the book for you; however, if you like fiction by Debbie Macomber and Francine Rivers, you will enjoy Need You Now.

Need You Now can be purchased from online retailers such as www.amazon.com.
