A story of life-long friends each struggling with life changing moments that tests their faith in God. Cydney thought she knew God's plan for her life but at 40 she realizes the path God has chosen for her may not be what she thought after all. Dana seems to have the perfect life until she discovers her husband is having an affair and her world is rocked out of control. Phyllis has a deep relationship with God which she passes on to her children easily but her husband is a non-believer which makes their life together tumultuous at best. When she runs into an old friend, a very Christian man, she starts to question her life choices. God and their faith play very important parts in each of these women's lives. Is their faith strong enough to help them through their struggles? The author writes quite naturally about not only individual relationships with God, including the issues of premarital sex, lust, betrayal, trust, and faithfulness but she does it without being preachy and doesn't lead us to the "happily ever after" scenario. There are definite Christian messages throughout the entire book but it is truly the story of three women in totally different stages of their lives and how the deal with strife as well as the day to day issues every woman faces daily. The women and men in this book are flawed just as all of us are, there is no perfect life. Challenges are faced , dealt with, moved on, just as we all of do everyday. The difference is that in this book the relationships with God are brought to the forefront, not kept in the background and while the issues tackled are not easy, the author has written them in a way that not only shows God's love but interweaves hope and faith in a way that shows that all relationships including those with God and our family entail a great deal of work. We are never promised that life is going to be easy. If you are looking for a typical Christian romance book, this is not it. This book is much more. As a Christian our faith can be questioned daily and this book uses these three women's lives to show us just a few instances of questions but there is a true underlying message for everyone. God will give us strength but we must put in the time too. The time for prayer, the time of helping others, the time for ourselves. Most importantly our hearts need to be open to receiving His gifts. This is a well written novel that I truly enjoyed but be prepared to not only read about the faith of the characters in this book, it will also make you look at your own faithfulness.

I enjoyed Kim Cash Tate's debut novel not only for the intriguing characters and the sisterhood they enjoyed (who doesn't love a girlfriends novel?) but also for the subtle ways the characters learn that faithfulness is not only between husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, and life-long friends. Ultimately the One the characters learn to be faithful to is God. Beautifully written, and highly recommended! Cindy Thomson Author of Brigid of Ireland

Faithful, a novel by Kim Cash Tate, takes you through the joys and struggles of three special friends. Cydney, Dana and Phyllis are strong women of God who encourage and walk through life together. As trials and difficulties hit, they each learn deep lessons in faithfulness - to each other, and most importantly, to God. The cover of the book lead me to believe it would be all romance and lovey-dovey relationships, but I was relieved to discover the storylines went much deeper and beyond the typical romance novel. I don't often read fiction, and this was my first time reading a novel by Kim Cash Tate. I was pleasantly surprised as each page drew my attention. The author did a fantastic job of bringing each character to life. As I got to know each one, I felt I could relate to different characteristics in each of them. I loved them and wished I could be the fourth member of their tight-knit friendship!

Very riveting and kept me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next thing to happen. I laughed, cried, laughed and cried some more. Faithful showed me what I need to do and woke me up to my unfaithfulness. I loved every minute of it and couldn't put it down. This is a definite must read for any woman, Christian or not that is struggling with some things.

This book lets the reader into the lives of three women, who also happen to be friends. What makes this book unique is the reality circumstances each of these individuals go through and how God is needed, relied on and then magnified in each of these situations.

Faithful presents the story of three women who must face diverse trials and stages of growth. It gives a realistic account of what so very often happens to women. "Before the cross" tendencies meet "in the grace" moments for a super-charged drama that will have you turning the page for more. Read this book and you will find a fresh perspective on faith, fellowship, and friendship. Rating: 5/5 Stars

I found this book to be very sincere and believable. I sensed the author's heart for marriage and healing in this story. I could tell that she poured her heart into the message that was so skillfully woven into the story. This book, while dealing with Scriptures, church, and other Christian themes, did not feel preachy at all. I dislike preachy stories. This was so natural in flow and theme that I didn't feel like a sermon was being preached. That is a good thing, especially if people of weak faith read this book. It won't turn them off to the message. Having known people in just about every situation written about in this story, I found the conflict to be well done. It showed the dark side of sin and temptation without getting too ugly. So many books where women were cheated on show rage that goes on and on and frankly, that gets old. I want to walk into the pages and tell the characters, "A-hem, you are supposed to love Jesus and believe in grace and forgiveness, remember?" There was such a godly balance in this story that was refreshing. The author didn't shy away from showing the beauty of marital love and true peace in the home. These issues are so important and many authors skim over them, probably out of fear that it won't be well-received. I loved how deep the author delved into the story regarding the marital themes. Sex in marriage is beautiful and if the author had totally shied away from showing this, then the book would have been weak, at best. I also loved how the author showed that honesty is essential in any relationship for it to be solid enough to withstand temptation. Real love doesn't hold back.

The bond between women friends is unique and can withstand many of life's most difficult situations. The book Faithful, by Kim Cash Tate explores the friendship between three women and their faith. The three main characters of this novel experience each have a crisis in their lives. Whether the characters' struggles are infidelity or commitment issues, women lean on each other and their faith to stand tall during their crisis. What I took from this novel is that no person's life is perfect. We don't know what is going on behind closed doors. But, when a life altering event happens, women turn towards their girlfriends for support and guidance. And, for some, their faith helps them pull through the difficulties. No matter how a person handles life's difficulties, it's always easier to have the support of friends to carry you through. Also, one of the characters of this book has a life attitude that is admirable. She takes a stand for her beliefs and lets no one sway her from her life purpose and goals. In today's world, strong woman characters are an important example that women are in control of their lives and goals. No one can stand in the way of a determined, strong woman.

This book focuses on the relationships of four different women, all in different stages in their relationships. It was interesting the way the author focused on God in these relationships, and showed that through Him, anything is possible. I may not agree with everything the author had to say, but I did find the book enjoyable. I think it would make a great book club book.

"Faithful" is a book about 3 friends, Dana, Cydney (Cyd) and Phyllis. The three are strong Christian women who always put God first in their lives. When the book begins, each is at a different point in their relationships. Dana catches her husband in an affair, Phyllis is struggling with a husband who is a non-believer and Cyd is floundering in the dispair of not being in a relationship--on her 40th birthday--at her baby sister's wedding. As the book goes on we see each woman struggle to deal with the new situations before them. Dana has to come to terms with an unfaithful husband. Does she stay, does she kick him out. How does God play in all this, and can she maintain a strong relationship with Him through it all. As a leader in their church, Scott (the husband) makes his infidelity public and the church as a whole ends up learning about sex and it's role in God's Plan. Phyllis attends a college sorority reunion and meets the man of her dreams: handsome, spiritual, loves his family. She struggles greatly between wanting that godly man and wanting to be faithful in her marriage and to God as well. When Syd meets Cedric, the best man at her sister's wedding, she is pulled to him physically, but when she finds out he is a ladies man, and a luke-warm Christian at best, she decides to turn her back on those feelings and focus on finding a man who is as strong in her faith as she is. But Cedric isn't ready to give up on her, or God for that matter. This book has a LOT going on. I think I would have enjoyed it a whole lot more if it only focused on one or two of the woman's issues. But there's the three main characters, the cheating husband, Cyd's younger sister...it all adds up to a lot to keep up with. Once I would get into one storyline, I would jump to another, then another and another. It was a nice little read, with some great spiritual tidbits to think about. But I just couldn't get into it that much with all that was going on. I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze book review bloggers program.

The first thing that captivated me about Faithful: A Novel by Kim Cash Tate was the beautiful, beautiful book cover! I think I just sat and gazed at the cover for a full two minutes before opening the book to read it. Well, let me assure you that the story is just as beautiful and inspiring as it's cover. It's not often that this happens and when it does, it's like eating your favorite cinnamon rolls while they're steaming hot ~ truly delectable! (Grin) The story opens with the main character, Cydney Sanders celebrating her 40th birthday on the day of her younger sister's wedding. Cydney is happy for her sister but internally she is struggling because her life has not turned out as she planned. The biggest disappointment? She's still single. It goes on to explore the lives of Cydney as well as her closest friends and family as they experience romance, humor, struggles and testing of faith, as well as the blessings that God can and will create in our everyday lives if we just commit to following Him. Throughout this book, the author shares Biblical references as to God's viewpoint on marriage. Wow - the Bible really has a very awe inspiring view of what marriage should be! My recommendation? Read this book! I found this book to be refreshing, inspiring and I truly enjoyed it. Many thanks to Thomas Nelson Publishing for the opportunity to review this book.
