About the Book:
From This Day Forward
Christian Music agent Kellen Rossiter has everything he ever wanted:
A-list clients from coast to coast, a loving wife who honors and
respects him, and a faith life that’s never wavered—until now.
Juliet Rossiter has the perfect life: a rewarding schedule serving the
underprivileged, a husband who loves her as Christ loved the church, and
a blessed future as a mother—at least that's what she thinks.
For Better or Worse
But what happens when their rock-solid marriage begins to crumble under
the weight of an unexpected and powerful temptation? How does love
survive when its foundation is shaken?
'Til Death Do Us Part
When human frailty and the allure of sin deal a harsh blow to their
relationship, it will take more than love to mend the shattered trust
and heartbreak. It will take a lifetime of devotion.
From all outward indications, Kellen and Juliet appeared to have the perfect marriage. Both Christians, they share the same values and long to complete their family with children. A successful music agent, Kellen falls into a pattern of skipping worship services, choosing instead to worship at home. Juliet, active in church and various outreach opportunities, loves her husband and her life. When Kellen signs a rising star, he struggles with desire and temptation for a woman other than his wife for the first time in his marriage.
What a powerful reminder that no marriage is immune to temptation and that we engage in spiritual warfare for our families on a daily basis. It's so easy to let life get in the way, to allow relationships to take a back-burner to jobs and responsibilities, and to slip into convenient routines. Kellen and Juliet battled realistic emotions, with plenty of angst and heavy drama you'd expect for a story line centered around temptation and broken trust. This is a story of re-commitment, renewal, and devotion to God and each other. It's also a gem of a romance. If you're looking for a book to squeeze in a couple hours on a lazy Sunday afternoon, Devotion probably isn't the book you should reach for. Don't expect to read it in one sitting, and be sure to have a box of tissues handy. Great job tackling such a tough topic, Ms. Evans!
