A hope-filled soon-to-be bride makes a discovery about her fiance that rocks her world and provokes a maelstrom of decisions and self-discovery.
Tara Faulkner has dreamed of her wedding and the life she and her fiance Seth will share in their hometown of Savannah . . . and by all accounts, it should be a charmed one. But when she discovers three weeks before the wedding that Seth is seriously addicted to pornography, Tara’s dreams are shattered.
She must decide whether she will stand by Seth, but she also must let go of the dream she shaped for herself and discover a real vision for her life–and where it will come from. With all else falling apart, Tara encounters an unexpected–and unlikely–group of women mentors. They help her peel back the layers of shaming secrets and begin to clearly see the real issues of her generation.
In the end, she’s able to make a decision based on God’s vision–not her own.
What an absolutely powerful read!
Rebecca and Nancy are spot on in their latest novel, One Last Thing.
They brilliantly take on the topic of porn in a fictional setting that is true to life.
So many young women today have to deal with this devastating issue.
I felt main character Tara’s heartbreak as she discovered the unthinkable about her fiancé.
The aftermath of finding out such a secret left her broken and undone.
So many women who face this in real life are left with the scars of insecurity and mistrust.
While the novel is never preachy, readers discover on their own the true life lessons and takeaways….which can be life changing.
I applaud these brave authors for taking on a subject that is not only taboo in the church, but distorted in the world.
