Relevant for today's Married Woman Jun 10, 2002
This book is full of valuable lessons. Even if you're a newlywed or not married yet, it shows you what can happen when couples don't communicate. The lessons learned from Juliet & Michaels experiences may help some couples to work through difficult times- other couples may learn how to PREVENT some of the problems outlined in this great novel. God has really given Mrs. Scott a gift- she is able to tell a tale that most people can relate to, and she illustrates it such a way that you truly feel the emotions the characters are feeling. I highly recommend this novel!
This is a great book!! May 10, 2002
This is the first book I've read about how a wife feels when her husband loses interest in their love life. For any wife who feels that she is trying to keep the romance in her marriage alive on her own, this is a book you'll want to buy. One of the reasons this was such a good story is because Kathleen Scott describes this really depressing marriage that I think many couples will relate to, but then she shows how the husband and wife found ways to make things better again. It was really encouraging to me. Buy this book, you'll be glad you did!
It's Still on My Heart May 2, 2002
The characters in this story seem so real that I'm still thinking about them weeks after I finished reading the book. I think anyone who is married will relate to Juliet's and Michael's problems. There are lessons to be learned in this story that I didn't see until I was almost finished reading it.
While I was crying with and relating to Juliet, I was learning something important that I think will make my marriage better. I recommend this book to anyone who has had their heart broken from being in love.
Passing the test with flying colors Apr 29, 2002
Just because you are a Christian doesn't mean you won't have problems in life. Juliet and Michael appear to have a perfect marriage, but looks are deceiving. Their struggles are all too familiar, and how they solve them in a Christ-like fashion makes "A Test of Love" stand out in the romance-fiction crowd. Kathleen Scott's passion for family and the sanctity of marriage are certainly refreshing in today's world. I am looking forward to the next story in the Mount Hermon series.
beautifully written Apr 28, 2002
"A test of love" was a wonderful novel that brought me to tears. I could identify with Juliet's emotions, and loved her great strength through her trials. It is one of those books you curl up with and can't put down. I bought this book for my daughter and know she will love it too.
