My Review of Faith Departed
I really liked Faith Departed. It was a bit hard for me to get into at first, and I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy it. Once I got into the story, it was very hard to put down! Faith Departed is a quick read, and the story is very moving.
June and July are twins who have always shared everything with each other, but that changes as they become adults and involved in their own lives and marriages. Each is thinking of starting a family. Unfortunately, this becomes a bit of a stumbling block in their relationship. They’ve always told each other things, yet when one becomes pregnant before the other, she doesn’t share the news with the other right away. This leads to a gradual rift between the women. Add this to the fact that June’s job is extremely stressful, thus her marriage begins to suffer as well.
Faith Departed takes us through the struggle of infertility, loss, and faith. It deals with loss of faith when God seems to be withholding children from those who want them. It also deals with how hard infertility can be on marriage as well as other relationships. I really appreciated the honesty of doubting God when things don’t go the way we think they should. I look forward to reading more about June and July and their faith.
