Item description for A Time to Mend: Safe Harbors Book One (Safe Harbor Novel #1) by Sally John & Gary Smalley...
Overview In a contemporary family saga set in San Diego, God's healing hand refines a husband and wife through a fatal fire that ultimately serves to re-ignite their passion for their marriage. Original.
An unopened gift. A broken vow. A tragic fire. Sometimes there are wounds that even time can't heal.
Max and Claire Beaumont seem to have the perfect marriage. They live in a beautiful home, have four wonderful children and everything else that success and money can buy. Yet beneath this picture-perfect exterior, Claire's life is falling apart. She can no longer hold her peace and keep up appearances.
After all the silent years, she must speak the truth.
As their lives unravel, deep needs and even deeper hurts are revealed. Not only the wounds between husband and wife, but family wounds as well. Will this time of soul-searching and conflict bring them closer together--or tear their marriage apart?
It's a strange irony to leave home in search of a safe harbor. Yet that is often where the journey begins . . . especially when it is time to mend.
A Time to Mend is the first novel in the Safe Harbor series. Drawing on the insights of best-selling marriage expert Gary Smalley, the series explores the joys and struggles of marriage, family, and faith.

Awakened Love! Jan 4, 2008
In this story we meet a couple, Clare and her husband Max. Married with four grown children, this couple had grown apart in many ways. One day Clare told her husband that she quit, but Max didn't have a clue what was really going on in her heart, or what she was quitting - at least not until she walked out the door. It took months of soul searching for each of them, and a near tragic end for Clare, before they allowed God to intervene and show them what was missing in their relationship, and how to fix it.The author did a good job in showing the ups and downs, inward battles, emotional victories and defeats of this couple. During this time, we are also shown the lives of their children, in which some of the same problems were showing in their relationships, and how they were rectified. This was quite a moving story, very well written. It was spiritually sound, addressed issues that many couples hide under the rug, and brought it all together in a great flowing storyline. A book that you will enjoy, perhaps will relate to, and certainly will remember long after the read.
