G.E. Hamlin

Before we begin today's review, the winner of Susan J. Reinhardt's book is: Jackie McNutt

Marriage Takes Three by G.E. Hamlin

With Randall Connor overcoming alcoholism and his wife Darla fighting attraction to a high school sweetheart, they are desperately holding on to their marriage by a thread. Jack Collins, Darla’s first love, is now a famous performer, J.J. Collins and he wants Darla back in his life. Randall believes it takes a cord of three to make a marriage and that third cord must be God, but all, but all attempts to get his wife and son, Paul, to embrace faith are met with rejections. Jack Collins isn’t about to give up on winning back Darla, and Randall’s demands may drive her into Jack’s waiting arms. With characters who face real temptations and soul-searching events, Hamlin gives you a story that will keep you turning the pages. Marriage does take three and without God as the third cord, it will unravel into loose strands with strength alone. The title is a perfect fit for the theme.

With over 25 reviews on Amazon, this book has 26 five star ratings.  

Getting to know Ginny:
G.E. Hamlin (Ginny) passionately writes about broken marriages and the restorative power of Jesus Christ.

She and her husband Ed have a blended family with five adult children and eight grandchildren. Ginny and her husband live in southern California where they enjoy the beach, desert, and mountains. As a full time author she is blessed with frequent opportunities to spend time with the grandchildren.

Melanie, thank you for your comment.

My hope and prayer is that “Marriage Takes Three” will be an encouragement to those who are in marital crisis and a foundational reminder to all that marriage (truly) takes three.
