Starting a family was supposed to be easy.
Twin sisters June and July have never encountered an obstacle they couldn't overcome. Married just after graduating college, the girls and their husbands remained a close-knit group.
Now settled and successful, the next logical step is children. But as the couples struggle to conceive, each must reconcile the goodness of God with their present suffering.
Will their faith be strong enough to triumph in the midst of trial?
Sometimes life stinks. And at those times, when hearts break and dreams disintegrate, faith can suffer, too. June and July, along with their husbands Toby and Gareth, face broken dreams in the form of infertility, miscarriage, and unjust accusations at work. As the twins struggle to accept their new realities, each must decide if she will continue to trust the God Who let her down.
This story was at times difficult to read, but not because of any writing issues. The difficulty lay in the subject matter, as both women’s suffering was all too familiar to me. Elizabeth Maddrey guides readers through crushed dreams to the big question: Is God trustworthy, no matter what?
This book earns four stars.
