    1. Usually the heroines in these kind of books are these sappy backless mice that drift trough life.Strangely, the heroine in this book caught and held my attention. I full out liked her!Well, Christian books are all about forgiveness. And she was set out to forgive an affair.I knew what I was getting in to. I knew.Still, the forgiveness? Don’t make me laugh! Why would anybody forgive this hero?His explanations are that he ‘has to have both worlds- the loving devoted mother of his children and [...]

    2. I wrote this one, but if you like realistic stories about characters struggling with God, about genuine, not perfect, faith, then I think you'll like Contingency. The story is about the aftermath of adultery, but Bobbi and Chuck work to save their marriage. For them, the outworking of their faith isn't empty Sunday morning platitudes, but a heartfelt relinquishing of the situation to God. If you've ever struggled to trust God, if you've ever been hurt or betrayed, or if you've ever wounded someo [...]

    3. This book was incredible! You really care about the characters and it is just so easy to read. It is written quite brilliantly, I must say. All fans of Christian fiction should pick this book up and read, read, read!!!

    4. WOW "Contingency" was a powerful book that can be hard to swallow at times but very real in it's portrayal. Wiseman bends your emotions in every direction imaginable. You could feel the hearts of her characters breaking then being pieced back together with the hand of Grace and Mercy. But she stays true to the reality that even when we heal a scar is always left behind. We see the slow fade that can happen to any of us if we don't guard our hearts and minds and stay close to Christ. Through her [...]

    5. Excellent, Heartfelt! All things are possible with God! Well written, an easy read. I recommend this book very much!!

    6. I experienced every emotion described in this book. Author did excellent job writing this book. I had to lay it down and walk away a few times to pull myself back together as it stirred past feelings.

    7. I have just begun reading but it is awesome thus far and holds my attention from the beginning.

    8. this book is part 1 of all the 4 books. i read 3 of them, and the first n 3rd book are the most emotional for me. i havent read the 4th though, and i dont think the 2nd is that emotionally hard compare to this book and the 3rd.i gave it 2 stars. it's not bcoz it's bad. no. as a matter of fact, this was a great book, great story, great character development and all. but for a very PERSONAL PRIVATE "POV" reason on my side, i am feeling unsatisfied or unconvinced or emotionally conected in some of [...]

    9. Bobbi Molinsky’s life as she knew it plummeted when a forwarded email from her husband (Chuck’s) account, hinting at a secret rendezvous, lands in her inbox while he is out of town. Upon confronting Chuck with the email, he doesn’t deny anything, claims it would have been better not to have come home, turns around, and leaves, after eighteen years of marriage!Paula Wiseman, in Contingency, doesn’t hold back on any of the emotions that occur from the fallout due to marital infidelity. It [...]

    10. 'Contingency' is a fantastic novel! The pages just flew by and before I knew it I had reached the end. The story is about Chuck's infidelity, how his wife, Bobbi, found out about it and how they are trying to mend their family.I thought the book dealt with the issue of adultery very well. It showed the anguish that the person who was cheated on went through and all the other issues that this one sin caused. It showed how it wasn't just Bobbi and Chuck that were affected by the infidelity, but th [...]

    11. Fantastic! If you are married or divoced and have not read this book then you should put it at the top of your list to read. The characters are very real. Kept me intrigued from page one, could not put it down. The book deals with marriage, adultery, and restoration. Our society accepts divorce, adultery, and non-convenant marriages, the devil is working long and hard to destroy marriages in any way that he can, because he knows that marriage is the one thing that God holds as sacred. Paula does [...]

    12. Such a great story on marriage. It shows the painful truth of the difficulty of marriage and when trust is lost, what can be done for reconciliation. Reconciliation is key but most painful. I liked the dicipleship shown, the true role of the church and realizing that truth is something that must be pursued. Charles the husband that cheated on his wife, had to come to the truth of why he cheated in the first place. His wife had to come to the realization of not denying what happen but truly forgi [...]

    13. I loved this book. It is Christian fiction. I could not put it down, but I'm not sure everyone would enjoy it as much as I did. The story walks the reader through a marriage that is in danger of falling apart due to infidelity. I found the author to share the perspective of both the husband and the wife equally well. It was like you understood both perspectives in some way and you just wanted to tell them each how far they were progressing, yet they each needed to go through the personal journey [...]

    14. A great read! This book grabbed my attention immediately, and I could not put it down. Ms. Wiseman captures a realistic glimpse in the life of a struggling marriage. Told from both perspectives, the reader has an opportunity to witness the transformation of both husband and wife as they develop a deeper trust in the Lord and each other.I purchased the second book in the series within a couple of chapters, and look forward to more!

    15. Very realistic story - it got better as I read. I was not too crazy about how indecisive Bobbi was regarding her marriage was quite a roller coaster. I also did not think the characters were very well-developed at the beginning of the story. However, I do think it is a blatant wake-up call to how individual choices affect many,many people.

    16. Very thought provoking novel. Characters are rich and well developed. Hard to put down. Highly recommended. Moving on to Book 2 in the series.

    17. I chose this as a Kindle freebie and enjoyed it so much I got the other two books in the series.

    18. Wow! Just discovered a favorite new author!I have just discovered another favorite to add to my "MUST BUY & READ" LIST! Wow! This story so realistic. He prepared to do nothing but read for a few hours once beginning this story. It will leave you anxious to tell all your friends, " go to and download this book NOW. " You will laugh and you will shed some tears. Read the first book then while searching to buy Book 2 in this series, said what the heck just go ahead and buy the whole series as [...]

    19. I'm not one who would choose the book based on the summary, as the sub-genre isn't my preference, but I got the book as part of a package of Christian Fiction novels and decided to give it a try.I'm glad I did, and I'm planning on reading book #2 soon.The storyline is basically this : infidelity. However, it is more than this, and goes into the characters' thoughts and motives, their emotions and more. Intwined is a Christian perspective on marriage and love of God, one that strengthened my own [...]

    20. Bobbi and Chuck's story will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. Pastor Phil and Donna are very special people. The characters in this book are all amazing characters. The author will have you in suspense throughout this whole book. You will feel God working throughout this whole story.

    21. Unless you are religious, particularly Christian this is not the book for you. Sooooooo much religious propaganda. I completely respect every ones own beliefs. I am just saying for those of you that are not religious. Not Christian. This is not the book for you!

    23. All I could think to say when I finished this book was, "Wow!" And then, "Would I be able to do that?" Bobbi and Chuck Molinsky are a typical Christian family, married for eighteen years, with two sons. But their world comes crashing down when Bobbi discovers Chuck's affair with his co-worker.They never saw adultery coming, but now they are forced to face it head on. Will they choose to seek God's will in their broken marriage even when the pain is beyond anything they've ever experienced?Paula [...]

    24. I've just finished reading Contingency for the second time, and what a book worth rereading! I find it very hard to believe that this was the first book that Paula Wiseman ever wrote. She has told the story of Chuck's infidelity and the journey that he and Bobbi make to restoration in an incredibly mature and spiritual way. In the space of the novel she manages to examine both Chuck and Bobbi, their weaknesses, insecurities and flaws, and how those characteristics come into play over the years o [...]

    25. When Bobbi discovers her husband's earth-shattering betrayal, she feels like she's lost everything: her trust, her love, even her faith. Although she makes the initial decision to not immediately seek a divorce, and is surrounded by people who support her, she can't get past the haunting thoughts, but she has to remain strong for her sons and the children she teaches. She can't fall apart, must keep going.In Contingency, Wiseman covers fairly much every emotion, every stage, to great effect. Peo [...]
