Christa Allan's Test of Faith ~ Reviewed
TEST OF FAITH
Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Abingdon Press (March 18, 2014)
Elle Butler has managed to hold on to her politically-driven husband and her secrets until the unexpected happens. When one phone call rips her world apart, Elle will have to decide if the truth is worth the consequences. Especially when it threatens to destroy the world she's so carefully built around her life and her marriage.
Test of Faith tells us about Elle and Logan Butler. Logan is a lawyer who is in the middle of a campaign to run for public office. Elle tries to be the good wife, attempting to measure up to all of the expectations that she feels are placed upon her. What she doesn't realize is that a secret that she's been keeping from him for sixteen years is about to re-surface, and it could potentially destroy his career, their marriage, and everything they've worked for.
I really enjoyed this story. It really drew me in. The suspense in each chapter of what was bothering her and the secret she was keeping kept building. Little pieces of the past would get revealed here and there, and it really kept my interest in the story. Logan's character was endearing, as he was an upstanding man of God, trying to do the right thing in the world of politics. And he loved his wife. Despite the fact that she might have felt beneath him, he loved her. I felt like I could relate to her character in many ways. And, I was happy with the outcome.
