A hope-filled soon-to-be bride makes a discovery about her fiance that rocks her world and provokes a maelstrom of decisions and self-discovery.
Tara Faulkner has dreamed of her wedding and the life she and her fiance Seth will share in their hometown of Savannah . . . and by all accounts, it should be a charmed one. But when she discovers three weeks before the wedding that Seth is seriously addicted to pornography, Tara’s dreams are shattered.
She must decide whether she will stand by Seth, but she also must let go of the dream she shaped for herself and discover a real vision for her life-and where it will come from. With all else falling apart, Tara encounters an unexpected-and unlikely-group of women mentors. They help her peel back the layers of shaming secrets and begin to clearly see the real issues of her generation.
What others are saying:
‘Richly developed characters and an engaging plot result in a compelling read that will stay with readers long after the book is finished. Recommended for fans of Francine Rivers and patrons seeking an inspirational story . . .’ (Library Journal, STARRED Review)
‘. . . the timely topic of pornography and its effects on a relationship are meaningful. More than an ‘issue’ book, it also explores truth and lies – both those told to others and the ones people tell themselves.’ (Romantic Times, 4 stars)

Once you start reading this book you may not want to stop. It was so good that I didn’t want it to end. The subject matter deals with pornography issues among believers that is usually passes over. This novel deals with the subject in a very tasteful manner. This would be a great book to have in churches in their libraries to be used as resource material when counseling. This is a very inspirational story about one woman’s search for healing after her whole life breaks up due to the revelation of her fiancé’s pornography addiction. It doesn’t wallow in the reality of the pornography, but it doesn’t shield readers from it, either. There are a couple of scenes that describe sexual situations and plenty of conversations and thoughts about the problem of sexuality. The Characters in this book were fantastic and they covered various people from family to people who are part of a circle of friends. This was a fantastic read and I whole heartedly recommend it.
I received this book free from the publisher through the book look bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
