I read this book in a day, simply because I wanted to know the "truth" of the story. If it had not been for their strong faith in God the Carpenters would never have survived as a couple.
I enjoyed the photos in the book but I thought they were ill placed. I would have preferred to see them after I read the book, instead of in the middle.
There were so many times when reading this book that I wondered how I would have acted if I were in the writer's shoes. It was a quick read, and I hope that you will also pray for the grace that this couple received, count your blessings and renew your own commitment to your vows.
To the reviewer that called it "shoving it down your throat" you missed the point. Apparently you consider talking about God offensive. I put up with all of the Hollywood agendas being shoved down my throat constantly. How about a little more tolerance for the faith community?
To the critics of this book: I am not on the same page theologically with Kim and Krickitt. However, you don't need to be just like them to see the strength and power of their story. Many men would give up in a situation like the one these two found themselves in. Kim did not, and staying was not easy. I have to reveal a bias: Kim was my boss at one time and he was truly one of the best supervisors I've ever had. The worth of their story is the truth about how marriage is not always easy, is not always romantic and is many times very tough. But you make a vow, and you stay and you work it out. All the rest is gravy. Kim and Krickitt's trials made them the wonderful people they are today. And Kim often asks in reference to their story: what would you do if this happened to you? Whatever your religious faith, how would you answer that question? Your faith should help you find the answer, and it did for Kim and Krickitt.

I'm not a huge fan of nonfiction, but this was a beautiful story of love, loss, and perseverance like no other.Read more
