A Reason to Stay – Kellie Coates Gilbert
I have never read a book by Kellie Coates Gilbert before – that will change! This is NOT the first book in the series, but I think they can all be stand-alone novels. After reading A Reason to Stay I want to go back and read her other novels.
Faith is a Type A personality ready to prove to the world that she is successful and has her life together! Geary takes life at an easier pace. He puts people before work. They fall in love, and I just can’t help but wonder if Geary is just focused on Faith’s physical beauty. Geary seems way more committed to God than Faith does. That said – Geary is ALL IN – and he truly loves Faith.
Their relationship gets pretty rocky. Then something tragic happens, and their worlds come to a sudden stop. Priorities are reexamined. Lives are changed. Love is learned. Forgiveness is given. Hope is restored.
A Reason to Stay is a really good book. It made me anxious. It made me sad. It made me smile. Good books provoke emotion. I was on Team Faith. I was on Team Geary.
