Expected to surpass a million books in print in 2012 after less than four years as an author, Beth Wiseman is certainly making her mark as a Christian fiction author. After successfully gaining a loyal readership for her Amish fiction, she decided to try something different: a contemporary story not set in an Amish community. The result is her latest novel, Need You Now (Thomas Nelson), a powerful story about characters grappling with real-life issues such as marital trouble and the challenge of parenting teenagers. When big-city life threatens the safety of one of their children, Brad and Darlene Henderson move the family to a much smaller Texas town, which is not an easy adjustment for the three teenage children. The couple’s strong faith has always carried them through difficult times, but they find tension rising in their marriage when Darlene takes a job outside the home for the first time. While working with special needs children at her new job, she experiences temptation when the widowed father of one of her students starts paying attention to her. An inspiring story of hope found in the midst of struggle, Need You Now is sure to resonate with readers.
