From the Author

Get out the tissues! Yes, even for me.  

"Coming Undone" is one of the hardest romance novels I've ever written, and it gave me great appreciation for those who work in hospice units.  Having been through the hospice experience with several family members, I know the people who work in those units are angels on earth.  They have one of the most emotionally difficult jobs on the planet.  Katherine is one of those characters that inspires me so much.  She just loves and cares and loves some more--even when she's not sure how to go on or how to live again on the other side of losing those she is charged with helping make the trip from here into the next life.

Ben for me was a challenge because this event in his life really just takes the knees out from under him. This is not grief.  It's devastation, and helping someone through something he doesn't want to do while he is so hurt and hurting was very difficult. A Christian Romance novel in every sense of the word, "Coming Undone" will have you sitting in the chapel, praying, going to funerals, and trying to work through life when you're learning to let someone you love go.

Ben's journey is one all-too-familiar. He's used to fast living and worldly pursuits yet is emotionally stunted and finds it difficult to deal with a life-changing monkey wrench thrown into his party lifestyle and going-through-the-motions as a carefree bachelor. Kathryn calls herself pathetic, and she's not too far off-the-mark in that self-assessment as the novel begins because she's too absorbed with worrying and whining about meeting her Prince Charming. However, when she looks past her single status and focuses on her professional life as a social worker and tends to the needs of her patients' families, the story takes off when she meets Ben on her hospice ward where his father is a patient. It's a sweet, evolving relationship between the two as they each learn lessons in life, loss and surrendering long-held fears and beliefs and find comfort and peace with one another that transitions into deep feelings of affection and then into love. The author's tendency toward frequent POV shifts tends to be disjointed and disconcerting at times, but she's written well-drawn characters with whom the reader can readily identify and embrace. Her dialogue is realistic, the secondary characters are wonderful, and the writing is sharp overall. It's not an easy book to read at times, but it makes the reader think and care, and that alone makes it well worth the journey. Well done, Ms. Stallings. This book was provided to me by the author in exchange for my honest review, and I thank her for it.

Coming Undone is an inspirational romance that will appeal to readers who enjoy something a little more gritty and who enjoy character-driven novels.

It's the story of Ben Warren, a man who's life gets turned upside down, and the woman he crosses path with, Kathryn Walker.

I liked the compassion Kathryn showed toward Ben. Also, Stallings does a good job of introducing her characters.

*Please note that I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my review. However, I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

Coming Undone is a wonderful story of a young man, Ben, who doesn't know God, who never took the time to find out who He is. He lived his life selfishly, enjoying women, fun, the fast life.
Kathryn is a young lady who does know the Lord. Yet in her world, loneliness prevails. She is wonderful at her job as a grief counselor and hospice care worker. Yet something is missing in her world.
Two very different worlds collide when a tragedy enters the life of young Ben. These two people meet and begin a journey of friendship and hope.
Extremely touching, this book brought me to tears several times while I was reading. The engaging prose is written well, and following the thoughts of these two wonderful people made for a wonderful story.
Get ready for an awesome story. Please have kleenex......you won't be sorry you read this lovely story!

This is such a well written book. It made me cry so many different times, I only stopped reading to wipe my tears. The characters are real and true and I couldn't help but feel for them. It was sad that it took such a traumatic event to make Ben 'wake up'. I love that Ben and Kathryn don't even realize how they affect each other until they're so deep in love with each other. This is one book I think back on for many reasons. It's thoughtful, compassionate, sad, a little funny, and real.

I have just finished this fantastic book Coming Undone, by my favorite author-Staci Stallings. This is one of the most powerful stories I have ever read, and a beautiful story of love, faith and real life heartache. The author brings the reader to look closely at their own life, as she spins the story of two brothers facing the loss of their dad..a hero to both of them. Hospice is not only a key factor in guiding them through the grief, but also in bringing them to facing emotions with courage and calmness. One can only hope that if they face this journey someday with a loved one, they can have a Kathryn in their lives! While the story is emotional, and yes, I cried..it is a story that brings you to the mirror ..to take a good look at yourself, and what is most important in life to you. Truly a life changing story and I am so glad I took this journey.
Story line is well developed, characters are so believeable, and a deep thoughtful look at many life issues and a practical solution offered. VERY well done, Staci..very well done.
This woman can write, and I recommend her books wholeheartedly. I am in the process of reading every one of them, and have not been disappointed one time.

I absolutely love Staci Stallings books. Her characters are so real. I caught myself just before saying a prayer for Ben, the hero of this book.

Ben's dad is admitted to the Hospice unit after suffering a stoke. The heroine, Kathryn, is the hospice social worker assigned to Ben's family. Although Ben had always been the single, happy-go-lucky guy who only cared about himself and having fun, he discovered that what he really wanted and needed was someone to love and be there for him. Kathryn was always the person doing for everyone else. What she wanted most in the world was a husband. She keep praying, but God never sent said husband.

There are a lot of emotions in the first part of the book - Kleenex required- but the happily- ever-after is well worth the tears. It's also great to see how God used the situation to provide what two people most wanted.
