This is the first in the Sullivan Crisp series. Crisp is a Christian counselor taking time for healing on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.
The book opens with a woman being caught in adultery. The novel deals with the devastation this brings to her career (and the Christian college at which she teaches), her husband and her children. Crisp helps her work through her feelings while he himself faces his hurts.
This novel is very well written. With male and female authors, the characters are well developed and are "real." The problems encountered are very believable.
This book is great for reading group discussions. A group I am in had a lively discussion.
