An angry confrontation leaves her with the broken remains of their eighteen-year marriage.
Guided by their pastor, Chuck commits to do whatever it takes to win Bobbi back, but she is wrestling with much more than his infidelity. Caught between a crisis of faith and her deepest fears, trust is a risk she can’t afford to take.

Where was God?
Bobbi Molinsky’s comfortable life is shattered when a forwarded email from her husband’s account lands in her inbox. The email teases, “My whole evening is free again.” After an angry confrontation with Chuck, she is left with the broken remains of an eighteen year marriage.
Where is God?
Bobbi agrees forgiving Chuck is the right thing, the God-honoring thing to do, but it leaves her empty and isolated. Teaching her second-graders is a burden. Taking care of her boys saps all her energy. It seems God Himself has walked away, leaving her to struggle alone.
Is God faithful?
Bobbi can’t deny the transformation in Chuck, but genuine forgiveness requires trust, and trust is a risk she’s not willing to take. Can she let go of her deepest, most primal fears and save her marriage?
“The characters are so real that you find yourself thinking of them as friends. They are flawed, they struggle, they have real doubts and fears and emotions, but the author is able to bring them through a seemingly insurmountable crisis in a way that is believable and inspiring.”
