Kellie Coates Gilbert in her new book, “A Reason To Stay book coverA Reason To Stay” Book Three in the Texas Gold series published by Revell brings us into the life of Faith Marin.

From the back cover:   Sometimes the thing that keeps us from making the wrong choice is the one thing we can’t control

As an investigative reporter and the host of her own TV talk show, Faith Marin works to expose the truth for her viewers. But in her personal life, she’s anchored her world with firm boundaries in order to hide a family history she’d like to forget. By contrast, her husband Geary’s life is an open book. An easygoing pro bass fisherman, Geary is the ultimate family man–and his overbearing relatives don’t know the meaning of boundaries.

Faith and Geary haven’t been married long when their differences start to derail their tender relationship. Surely love shouldn’t be this hard. While Faith considers whether divorce is the only answer to their issues, tragedy strikes. With her life in the balance, she finds that the one she has been shutting out may be the very one she cannot bear to lose.

Kellie Coates Gilbert takes you on an emotional roller coaster as she weaves together unexpected trial, self-discovery, and forgiveness in this profoundly honest portrait of the tensions that can break a marriage–and the ultimate healing power of love.

It is amazing to me who we choose for our marriage partner. From the outside it looks as if Faith really married the wrong man. It seems as if Geary isn’t anything like her. When you read it you decide if this is true or not. At any rate it really comes down to the wire whether Faith should divorce Geary or not. It would seem as if this is the most prudent thing to do. However events happen that necessitate stalling the divorce proceedings. What will the final outcome be? There is the fascinating relationship between Faith and Geary that moves the story along at a brisk clip. Ms. Gilbert is highly talented and keeps the story moving at a very high level of quality. Ms. Gilbert makes you care for Faith and Geary and their unique journey.  This is also just plain fun and exciting as well.  Don’t start this book late at night because it will cost you sleep.
