Desert Gift - Book Review

What happens when a nationally known, marriage expert, about to start a book tour, learns that her husband wants a divorce? How will she face her audience? How can she continue her ministry when everything she teaches doesn’t even work in her own life? Is everything she believed a lie?

Desert Gift by Sally John is the story of a woman’s struggle as she faces her failures, learns to forgive herself and others, and leans on God for a hope and a future.

For anyone who’s experiences a similar situation, this book may help you heal. You’ll relate to the painful emotions Jillian goes through and be encouraged as you watch God walk her through the ordeal.

If you haven’t experienced a situation similar to this, you need to read the book in order to be better prepared to help others who have. This happens more times than you think!

I loved the ending! I can’t reveal it, but I can tell you that it ends on a positive note, however, not as you might expect.

Although Desert Gifts doesn’t have an adventure-packed, keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat plot, it is a book that everyone should read. You might see a bit of yourself in it!

NOTE: I received a review copy of this book from Tyndale House; however, I do not have to write a positive review.
