My fiance and I will be officially husband and wife on June 17, 2011. I bought this book, and three other “Amazing Grace” editions on the same day and they are all uplifting stories, however, this one held a special place in my heart. Marriage is a sacred sacrament and the day I said yes to my fiance, I knew I was going to be married to this man for the rest of my life! This book teaches me that in “good times and in bad” there is always Faith, Hope, and Love…key ingredients for a happy, successful, and loving marriage!

This is one of those books that is hard to put down, easy and fast to read, and that leaves you with a feeling of hope. All of the stories in this book are true. All of the marriages described in this book were not just “on the rocks” but literally at the breaking point. Reading their stories, most normal marital problems seem slight in comparison. This book contains serious gambling and pornography addictions, adultery, lesbianism, consumerism, self-centered career chasing, bad communication…all tearing the spouses apart. The reader wonders, how could these marriages be salvaged? And yet, all of these couples stayed together, transformed their marriages and blossomed.
The beautiful thing is that they all saved their marriages because they returned to practicing their faith and found in Christ the power to heal their wounds. Two or three of the couples attended Retrouvaille, one or two attended Marriage Encounter. Some of them now speak to other Catholic couples about their experiences.
These stories lead to a faith that no obstacle in marriage is too large to overcome, and they inspire a renewed interest and devotion to God.

This is an incredible book! I just couldn’t put it down. At one point I was so touched that I dropped to my knees and prayed. I recommend this book to all married couples, but especially for those who might be struggling in their own marriage. This book is such a testament to God and to what can happen when you have faith in God!!! Highly Recommended!!

I’m a busy working wife and mom but I found that I just could not put this book down. The really practicial thing I like about the book is that it has 12 different stories so in about half an hour, you can read an entire story and be totally edified by it without having to read the stories in order from first to last like a book with chapters. I especially got alot out of the story about the wife who became an obsessive gambler. It wasn’t a story I would have picked to read right away because of the subject but I “stumbled” into it and was hooked after the first 3 paragraphs. This book has been a great inspiration to me and the main message is that there is always hope even in those situations which may seem hopeless. I bought 3 extra copies to give as gifts to other married couples.
