A Moment of Weakness by Karen Kingsbury*A Review


Had they found each other again after all these years, only to lose everything that matters most?

As children, Jade Conner and Tanner Eastman were best friends—until scandal drove them apart. Then, one golden summer, they find each other again.  Through endless days they share their hearts and souls and dreams of forever.  Then, in a moment of weakness, they make a decision that will tear them apart for nearly a decade.
In their own separate corners of the country, Jade and Tanner have become fighters for religious freedom. Now Jade’s unfaithful husband is determined to destroy her in a custody battle that will rock the nation and shake people’s understanding of faith and freedom. Could Jade lose her only child because of her faith? Only one man can help her in her darkest hour. And only one old woman knows the secret about that summer and the truth that can set them all free.

  A Moment of Weakness by Karen Kingsbury is a very good novel. It is book two in the Forever Faithful series. Karen really keeps you attention with her books.
  Jade and Tanner grew up together and became fast friends. Tanner was always saying I will marry her one day. Family problems and Jade moved away and Tanner never knew what happened. His mother knew but she hated the Conner family.
   So they grew up and just happened to find each other again. They had a wonderful summer together and then they had to go on with their lives. Not to give the story away Tanner’s mother told Jade lies and hurt her so much she didn’t want anything to do with Tanner.
  Jade married another and Tanner never knew what happened. To make a long story short Jade’s husband wanted a divorce and wanted their son. So Jade gets Tanner to help fight for him.
  This is an amazing story, but so many hurtful things happen and Jade and Tanner’s mother use and deceive others. I don’t feel like this is a very realistic story. I know we are to forgive and understand how people can do such things, but in this book it is almost like they understood and forgave instantly.  Recommend this book, but not one of my favorites.
