by Sally John
Imagine you are a national expert giving advice on keeping marriages alive. You have a national radio program counseling couples how to communicate and not miss the tell-tale signs of a problem. You have speaking engagements, and you just wrote a book. You have a book tour lined up, including speaking to the biggest church on the west coast.
Your bags are packed, and you and your husband are about to leave for the book tour followed by a well-deserved and over-due vacation. It will be great to share this mountain-top experience with him and then have some time alone -- just the two of you. As the cab pulls up to take you to the airport, though, he says he's staying home. And he wants a divorce.
Desert Gift is well-written and draws you into Jill and Jack's world as it turns upside down. Can they follow the advice she's given others all these years? Or are the people who write and tell her she's way off-base really correct? Can you see signs of impending trouble in your marriage? How can you correct it? Sally John walks you through all of those gut-wrenching questions and helps you experience and wrestle through it as you walk in both Jill's and Jack's shoes.
I have also read Sally John's book Ransomed Dreams, and I like her writing style. She is able to walk you through belief questions in a positive way. I recommend Desert Gift wholeheartedly.
