Michelle Sutton's "Never Without Hope" is too hot to handle!


Michelle Sutton's new book "Never Without Hope" is not for the faint hearted when it comes to romance or the things that go on behind closed doors. This book is very intense and pretty steamy for an inspirational novel, but Ms. Sutton handles the topics of lust, sin, and an extra marital affair with a grace that only she can. Ms. Sutton's story shows us that God, through his tender and redemptive mercy can reach down and restore us wherever we are and no matter what we've done.

Never Without Hope is much steamier than what I normally read, but since Michelle Sutton is one of my favorite authors, I had to give it a read. It's good, but beware, Ms. Sutton's love scenes are more sensual than most Christian books. Her writing style is edgy enough to portray life just like it is.

I read somewhere that Ms. Sutton intends this book to be a ministry for women who struggle with sexual problems in their marriage and also for women who've had affairs. Never Without Hope is the perfect title because since God loves us with an unconditional love, we are never without hope.

Book description:
Hope believes she is above sexual temptation; that she would never break that commandment like her husband's previous wives had done. After all, she is a good Christian and a loving mother. She has no reason to stray . . . until her husband starts neglecting her needs and things begin to look hopeless. Though she clearly communicates her pain to her husband, he refuses to get help. She starts to wonder...Will she never have sex with her husband again? She soon learns that she, too, is capable of such betrayal when she succumbs to the unthinkable. But things that first seemed sweet and reasonable given her painful situation soon produce a bitter taste when combined with the overwhelming guilt. No substitute will ever replace her love and desire for her husband. If only he would touch her like he used to. If only they could make love again. She misses him so much and wants to tell him the truth hoping it will propel him to do something to fix their problem, but she fears his rejection. Yet, she can't continue living such a hypocritical life. She knows it's wrong even though she continues to crave physical intimacy. Steeped in the quagmire of adultery, Hope must find her way back to solid ground to save her marriage. But will she lose everyone she loves in the process?

  2. This certainly sounds like a book different from the rest that I usually read. As the Senior English Teacher at my Christian School, however, I have been the designated reader to check out such books. I would like to win this book.
