Editorial Reviews

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!

My book review is on the book Coming Undone by Staci Stallings. This story is a heartbreaking story of a man journey to find peace with a dying father and the situation of a broken family. It is very well written and will touch your heart. I enjoyed the book even though it dealt with the transition of life unto death in a hospice facility.

Ben Warren is a man going through life on the fast track. He works hard but plays harder with out a care in the world; until the day he receives word that his father has had a massive stroke. His father is his hero and his best friend, how can he live without him?

Kathryn Walker is a social worker in a hospice care facility at the hospital. It is her job to help the family and the patient make the transition from this life as easily as possible. Some families have a much more difficult time than others but she is there to support them no matter what. She believes this is her ministry and she has become very good at it.

When Kathryn meets the worldly Ben Warren she is drawn to him. His eyes are full of pain and she can tell that he is coming undone, is that why she is drawn to him or is it a God thing? Ben doesn't know God that much is obvious, is she there to lead him to him or is there more.

Ben doesn't believe in a God even though his father was a believer. Now his brother, that he had not seen since he was a small child and Kelly, Ben's best friend, are here and they believe in this God that the beautiful Kathryn seems to know and talk with. He doesn't understand any of it, he just knows the bottom has fallen out of his world and he has no way to fix it. the only time he can find peace is with Kathryn.

His journey is intriguing and inspiring at the same time.

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.
