Blurb for A Fragile Hope by Cynthia Ruchti:
Josiah Chamberlain’s life’s work revolves around repairing other people’s marriages. When his own is threatened by his wife’s unexplained distance, and then threatened further when she’s unexpectedly plunged into an unending fog, Josiah finds his expertise, quick wit and clever quips are no match for a relationship that is clearly broken.
Feeling betrayed, confused, and ill-equipped for a crisis this crippling, he reexamines everything he knows about the fragility of hope and the strength of his faith and love. Love seems to have failed him. Will what’s left of his faith fail him, too? Or will it be the one thing that holds him together and sears through the impenetrable wall that separates them?
“Five star, award-winning author, Cynthia Ruchti, writes A Fragile Hope with the depth that leaves a lasting imprint. Ruchti delivers a heartwarming/heart-wrenching drama filled with wisdom and inspiration closely in tune with God. A must read!” – Dianne Burnett, Publishers Weekly reviewer
“Captured by each nugget of wisdom in A Fragile Hope, I suddenly realized—this is more than a novel. While it is the gripping story of a self-absorbed, self-righteous man and his unexpected journey out of despair and crippling fears; it’s also a powerful means to help us confront our own hypocrisy, insecurity and struggles when we “do life” in our own strength and with our own agenda. Cynthia calls readers to hope-filled choices today that will change their lives, homes and ministries for years to come. She scattered seeds of hope in my own heart that are already taking root. And I am grateful.” ~ Dawn Wilson, founder, Heart Choices Today, and writer at .
“Books either grab you or they don’t. A Fragile Hope grabbed me by the throat with the first line and never let go. Cynthia Ruchti always writes heart books but I was not sure if this was going to end the way I wanted. I so feared for those characters. Try A Fragile Hope by Cynthia Ruchti and then go after her other books.” – Lauraine Snelling, best-selling author
