Not Easily Broken... Feb 10, 2007
David and Clarice, the main characters of NOT EASILY BROKEN by T. D. Jakes, were once a happily married couple, but are slipping away from each other because of their lack of communication. Clarice's inability to share her fears with David and truly open up to him goes from bad to worse when she's in a fatal accident and refuses to lean on him for strength. David loves his wife and does all he can to show her he's there for her, but feels useless and unneeded. It becomes obvious after a while that they are two very different people with different goals in life.
Before the accident, Clarice is busy climbing the corporate ladder and keeping up with everyone else while David is content with running his janitorial business and helping out in the community. The accident should have drawn them closer, but instead it pushes them further apart. David finds himself spending more time with Clarice's physical therapist (a single mom) and mentoring her son. In the process, he becomes attracted to her and a father figure to the young boy. He learns more about himself, and what it feels like to spend time with people who care about him and share similar beliefs and dreams. Clarice notices the difference in David and begins to wonder if he's having an affair. After a tragic accident, she confronts David and forces an answer. What follows gives the book more drama than seen in most Christian Fiction or Inspirational reads.
While I enjoyed NOT EASILY BROKEN, some of the issues seemed glazed over and Clarice's character worked my nerves to no end. I really felt nothing for her, and though I knew David was being led down a road of temptation, I wanted him to find some type of happiness and it didn't seem that Clarice was capable. Her selfish demeanor will turn off many readers, but others will find her realistic and a portrayal of a woman balancing her career and marriage. On the flip side, Jakes did a wonderful job of showing David's side of things and there are some very moving areas in NOT EASILY BROKEN that will resonate with the reader. The resolution was satisfying, though predictable, and sends a message that what God puts together cannot be easily broken.

Not Easily Broken is another captivating, thought-provoking, spiritual lesson hidden in words woven by T.D. Jakes. Sometimes when we grow up lessons that we are taught by our parents, stay with us a little longer than we would like. Our dreams that we have for ourselves when we are growing up is not always the path we take.
Clarice and David Johnson had been married for fifteen years. Though they went through the motions of being married and successful in their careers, something was lacking. Due to a horrible mistake, they were in a very bad accident and this is when God saw the opening to teach a lesson.
Clarice had listened to her mother tell her for years to be dependent on only herself. Due to this, Clarice pushed herself to be one of the best real estate agents at the firm she worked. She did not understand why David would not give up his custodial business and do something more promising and showcase his potential. Never really learning how to depend on someone else drove Clarice into a dark place when the accident happened. It also gave her time to reflect on herself
David gave of his self to everyone, from his employees that did not have any skills to the children's little league baseball he coached. The one person he tried to care for the most was not very receptive of his natural caring and giving nature but that did not stop him from trying. When someone else started to take notice of this rare quality, David found he liked the attention.
T.D. Jakes has woven a story of love, loss, and love again. Sometimes we have to sit and reflect on things that God wants us to heed, but when we are not receptive He can be rather funny in the route He takes to teach us. I recommend this to a reader that is not used to listening and compromising.
Horrible Jan 17, 2007
I found this book to be a waste of time. I was struggling to get through it. My entire book club was in a state of awww at this book. Not deep at all, very shallow and weak. I wouldn't advise anyone to go out of their way to read this book. I don't think there was much thought or "work" put into this book. I especially didn't care for all the details in the scenes at the baseball field. I found it to be a lot of filler!!
Decent Book Jan 11, 2007
To be honest when I purchased this book ( book club pick ) I thought I would get a sermon. This novel was a pretty good read and not religiously overbearing. The story was very realistic and also entertaining. Unlike most novels with a similar story line it focused more on being unfaithful not within a physical aspect.
