Need You Now by Beth Wiseman

NEED YOU NOW by Beth Wiseman
A can’t put down novel revolving around the trials and tribulations of raising a family in a big city with it the wealth of influences and the potential benefits of relocating a family to a small town. Can moving your family from the city to the country be the answer?

The need for mothers/wives to feel appreciated and needed and the special place they hold within the family as the homemaker versus their role as a provider outside the home. The reward the lady of house can feel by feeling needed.

The story makes one reflect on their own family especially when they have children in and around the same age. It opens one's eyes to the life of a teenage girl going through a huge change and the pressures they feel within family life and life in general and often their inability to be heard when they are crying silently for help.

Leaves you thinking about temptation and the reality of what it could do to you as a person and you in your relationship with your husband and God. It makes you put faith in God and think about the power of Prayer. How friends can make us remember what is important to us and the role in which God takes in our lives.

It is a great story of family ties, friendships and the need for companionship, how being truthful always in every aspect of our lives with everyone is the only way to live a good, clean, honest fulfilling life.


  1. I loved this book as well. Very realistic portrayal of the struggles of marriage and raising a family. Despite all the difficulties they face, the book overall is very hopeful, and I think most readers will be able to relate to the problems. It would also be a helpful book for someone who wants to understand what goes on in the mind of a teen who seems “perfect” on the outside but is dealing with life’s pressure in a very unhealthy way. Great book!

  2. I really enjoyed this book too, Allyson, and reviewed it on my blog:
