More Than A Marriage





EXCERPT

"NO"! Not until he realized that their marriage was in trouble, that they needed to work on it. That he needed to get rid of his phone and pay more attention to what really mattered.

Find out why, Jacob and Tess's marriage is heading down a dangerous path, in Amy Lillard's "More Than A Marriage" Wells Landing Series. 

MY THOUGHTS

In this incredible read,  Lillard brings to real life situations into the lives of a young amish couple Jacob and Tess. As you read through this story you find yourself relating to this couple and wanting them to find their way back to each other and to the marriage they once had. 

 The ability of this story to be so relatable will capture your heart. Lillard has a way of bringing these real-life situation to the surface is not afraid to show that the Amish, have problems much like those aren't Amish experience. Lillard brings a universal theme to this story, and reminds us how important it is not to compare our life situations to others,  how dangerous it is in doing so.  I loved the way Lillard shows that God has a plan and purpose for each of our lives, and when we begin to embrace that, everything else starts to make sense. 


I was given a copy of this book for my review which I have given.


I live in Tulsa, though I was born in Mississippi. I moved to the Sooner State when I was seventeen and met my soul mate and best friend not long after. I’ve retained a little of my Mississippi accent though most people think I’m from Texas. (?)  Rob and I have been married for over twenty-five years and have a son–a mom proclaimed prodigy, of course!
I love homemade tacos, nail polish, and romance novels–not necessarily in that order. I’m a big fan of country music, a staunch proponent of saving the Oxford comma, and I’m shamefully obsessed with all things Harry Potter.
I dislike people trying to convince me to read the Twlight series (I’ll get to it or I won’t, either way I’m good with it), gratuitous violence, and strawberry ice cream. (I know I’m alone on this last one, and again, I’m good with it.)
Favorite movies–(besides HP) French Kiss, Maid of Honor, A Lot Like Love, Just Married, and Sweet Home Alabama. Oh, and Miss Congeniality, Sabrina (both versions) and a 1940’s movie called Dear Ruth. If you haven’t seen it, you should! A-dorable. Anything with Doris Day and most all of Marilyn’s and Audrey’s.
