His Needs, Her Needs
This book by Willard F. Harley, Jr. was one I hear about in passing when watching a YouTube Video. The hosts of the show kept recommending that their audience read the book so I picked it up. It really emphasizes how to keep affairs from occurring in marriage. I enjoyed it a lot and it was very informational even for someone who isn’t married. It clearly depicts the realities of marriage and gives advice to get back on track.
Not only did it make clear what couples should do to avoid affairs but it also went through what the 5 core needs are for men and women in relationship to each other. This book has Christian themes and Christian solutions to problems. In some instances asking the wronged partner to pray about their next steps. I appreciated the thoughtfulness of the author and the acute awareness of the differences between men and women.
Whitney, My Love
This is a classic historical romance novel. I was recommended this book when I was in high school and it kicked off a 5 year obsession with this genre. This book is a classic tale of a strong willed girl, authoritative father and a dominant neighbor/future spouse. The character development is flawless and I am still waiting for a movie or better yet, a Netflix series to be created based off of it. This book will make you laugh, cry and everything in between. It is quite a long read but it can absolutely be finished in a long weekend. You will not want to put it down. The twists and turns keep you on the edge of your seat and distracted by the flipping pages well into the night. There is incredible voice in this novel and the books to follow don’t disappoint either. Judith McNaught is a skilled romance writer and I haven’t read a single books of hers that disappointed. Whether it was based in the past of the present, her books always go above and beyond expectation and truly function as escapism.
