Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley in their new book, “Desire book coverThe Desire” Book Three in The Restoration Series published by Revell takes us into the lives of Allan and Michele

From the Back Cover:   Can faith build a bridge between their dreams?

For two years, Allan and Michele have been trying to have a baby. The emotional ride has been taking a toll on their hearts–and their relationship. Michele is obsessed with researching fertility treatments while Allan seems content to spend his time–and their money–on supporting displaced children in Africa. Something’s got to give. But they both hope it’s not their marriage.

Still, God has a plan for Allan and Michele that they could never have imagined. And all it takes to set it in motion is a change of heart . . .

Without any doubt Dan Walsh is one of the best writers out there.  He consistently writes books that go right to the heart, have wonderful characters that deal with issues that affect all of us.  “The Desire” is no exception.  “The Desire” is all about a family.   Allan and Michele have reached a plateau in their marriage. Michelle really wants a child but cannot have one and this is causing a rift between the two of them. Mr. Walsh explores the hole made by not having children. He also explores the burden an unwanted pregnancy can have.  There is also an exploration of what we are to do when we come across a crisis pregnancy.  It is going to take God to make it all right in this marriage and with the individual characters. This book touches on issues that can affect any marriage.  The team of Walsh and Smalley takes these issues, put them in a fictional setting and get their point across without being preachy.  There is healing, forgiveness, restoration all within the family and all from God.  This is a wonderful book that shows the power of God to heal and restore.
