His Other Wife: Review and Giveaway

About The Book:


New York Times bestselling author Deborah Bedford sweeps readers into this compelling drama with her trademark style of beautiful, lyrical writing. Since her divorce from Eric, Hilary has done everything she can to control life for herself and her son. Beneath a calm surface, she is terrified of failing Seth. She's worked hard to raise him on her own, and she's succeeded--he's now set to graduate from high school and enroll at the University of Illinois with a full scholarship.

But Hilary's worst fears are realized when there is a rock-climbing accident at a post-graduation campout. A young girl is hurt, and Seth is arrested. Pamela, Eric's new wife and Seth's stepmother, blames Hilary for letting Scott go to the campout in the first place. With Seth's college scholarship now just a distant memory and his entire future at stake, the two women must come together for Seth's sake.

Is Hilary's love strong enough to save her son and release him to her ex-husband's other wife?

About The Author:


Deborah Bedford is a career fiction writer who began her professional life as a journalist in a Colorado mountain town. Deborah and her husband, Jack, have two children and live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.


My Review: 


Being in a blended family has it's share of trials and experiences for families to deal with. That is the premise of this book. But the main theme is forgiveness, moving on from the past and remembering that throughout difficult times God is always there and always in control. His ways may not always make sense to us, but He will reveal His reasoning in His time. 


His Other Wife introduces you to a great cast of characters and you will be drawn into the life situations and crisis' from page one. You will not want to put this book down. Actually, I could totally visualize the scenes as I read and feel this book would make a fantastic movie!


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
