Watch Over Me by Christa Parrish is a book that deals with many heavy issues. The subplots tie together without a lot of confusion or questions as Ben and Abbi fight to keep their marriage and faith. I admire the fact that they did not give up, and that God doesn’t give up on them.
Matthew is an amazing person considering how he has grown up. It’s almost unbelievable, but refreshing to read about his strong sense of right and wrong, his sense of responsibility, his patience with his cousins, his servant’s heart, and his knowledge of the Bible.
The characters and times are really modern and tugged at my heart, but the overall feeling I received from the book was sadness. The ending left me with a sense of hope that things were working out.
Here is the back cover copy:
Her Rescue Might Be the Miracle They Needed
Things like this don’t happen in Beck County. Deputy Benjamin Patil is the one to find the infant girl, hours old, abandoned in a field. As police work to identify the mother, Ben and his wife, Abbi, seem like the obvious couple to serve as foster parents. But the newborn’s arrival opens old wounds for Abbi and shines a harsh light on how much Ben has changed since a devastating military tour. Their marriage teeters on the brink and now they must choose to reclaim what they once had or lose each other forever.
