The Desire ~ Review

The Desire
The Restoration Series 3
By Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley

The Desire is the third book in The Restoration series.  This series is the joint efforts of two talented writers Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley.  This book builds on the previous books in the series, though it is not necessary to read the first two to enjoy The Desire.

In The Desire Michelle and Allan have been married for about two years and to Michelle's disappointment they have yet to have a baby.  Michelle's longing for a child is starting to take a toll on her marriage.  Meanwhile Allan's been going on mission trips and his heart lies with the poor children in Africa he wants to help.

As Allan and Michelle work through these trials that are weighing on their hearts they learn that marriage is a work in progress and communication is the key to making it work.  Meanwhile Tom and Jean are continuing to work on straightening out their financial woes.  And Marilyn and Jim continue seeing a strengthening of their marriage after their rocky patch.

When a young woman in need comes into contact with the Anderson family her life is about to change as they reach out to her with love and support.

The Desire will take you on a journey of faith and trust as the Anderson family continues to grow in their relationships with God.  They learn to trust on God and to listen for His voice as they confront the issues that come up in their lives.

This is a book that speaks to those who have a desire for their own child and the insensitivity they face in their day-to-day lives both within and without the church.  This is a well thought out book that will make you stop and think.  And if you have someone in your life dealing with this issue, you may be a little more aware of their possible struggles and allow you to be a listening ear.

I was provided a copy of this book through Revell's blogger program in exchange for my honest review.   

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 . . .
