Author Elizabeth Maddrey began writing stories as soon as she could form the letters properly and has never looked back. Though her practical nature and love of math and organization steered her into computer science for college and graduate school, she has always had one or more stories in progress to occupy her free time. When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth is a voracious consumer of books and has mastered the art of reading while undertaking just about any other activity. Elizabeth is a member of ACFW and lives in the suburbs of Washington D.C. with her husband and their two incredibly active little boys.

My Review –

Faith Departed is a wonderfully written woman’s Christian romance about two twin sisters and their struggles to conceive and balance their disappointment along with keeping their faith in God strong.

I really enjoyed the storyline. It delved deep into the sister’s faith in God and how the journey to conceive a child can reek havoc on even the most stoic of faith-filled women. Even the bond of sisterhood and being a twin will be tested to its limits.

The book was well-written with deeply developed characters. Each played her part well as they began their journey into faith and conception. I felt the author did a great job incorporating all the aspects of a real-life struggle into an amazing book.

I am giving Faith Departed five stars. If you have ever struggled with infertility or know someone who has, you would enjoy this book.
