A Marriage CAROL by Chris Fabry & Gary Chapman - a review with giveaway

For anyone who loves Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol, you might just find Chris Fabry & Gary Chapman's book, A Marriage CAROL an enjoyable read. While it is not a long book, a mere 113 pages in length, this little hardback book packs a wallop of a message.

On a snowy Christmas Eve, Jacob and Marlee Ebenezer are on there way to see the divorce lawyer to sign the papers signaling the end of their marriage. With the weather getting worse by the minute Jacob chooses to take the short cut to town and soon finds a truck bearing down on them as they are headed into a curve. The next moment Marlee awakens finding the keys in the ignition, the airbags deployed but no sign of Jacob.

Marlee heads out in the snow looking for Jacob and comes upon a house.  Here she meets the owner, Jay, and learns that the power is out and they have no phone service. Jay goes out with the hope to find Jacob for Marlee but is unsuccessful. What transpires next is Marlee sees her past, present and future.

This book will take you on one woman's journey of finding herself before it is too late.  It is packed with sound advice and is a story that can be read anytime of the year, not just at Christmas.  I would highly recommend this book, especially to anyone who might be thinking of going down the awful road to divorce.

On a 5-star scale - 4 1/2 stars!

I would like to thank Moody Publishers for my review copy of A Marriage CAROL, I received my copy for free in order to review and give my honest opinion, which I have done.
