Face of the Earth - review

What if she never came home . . . ?

When Mitchell Brannon’s beloved wife sets off for home after a conference, he has no idea that his life is about to change forever. Mitch returns from work early that evening, surprised that Jill’s car isn’t in the garage. But her voice on the answering machine makes him smile. “Hey, babe, I’m just now checking out of the hotel, but I’ll stop and pick up something for dinner. Love you.” Hours later, Jill still hasn’t returned, and Mitch’s irritation turns to dread.

When the police come up empty, Mitch enlists the help of their next-door neighbor, Jill’s best friend, Shelley, to help search. As hours turn into days and days into weeks, Mitch and Shelley’s friendship grows ever closer—and decidedly more complicated. Every lead seems to be a dead end, and Mitch wonders how he can honor the vows he made to a woman who has seemingly disappeared from the face of the earth.

My Thoughts:

Have you ever given thought to what it would be like if your loved one or maybe a family member just didn't come home one day? No, they weren't just running late, they literally disappeared! The fear, devastation, and overwhelming inability to understand how this could happen to you just consumes your every thought!

Face of the Earth shares the story of how Mitch comes face to face with the disappearance of his wife Jill.

For me, when I hear of a persons' disappearance, I just can't comprehend how a person could deal with that. I don't know what would be worse - wondering every single minute where they are & how  they are, or the never knowing if you will see their face again. Regardless, it would be pure agony!

Author Deborah Raney pens a wonderful story of love, loss & letting go. Letting go of our own will and letting God walk with us through difficult times is sometimes the most difficult journey but leads us in to HIS will and that is the BEST place to ever be!

Thank you Litfuse for allowing me this complimentary book I'm exchange for my honest opinion!

This was such a powerful book for me as well Loren. I wanted so much to flip to the end to see how it was going to all turn out, but refrained and stuck it out to the end. Powerful is the only word I can use to describe it.
