A Morning Like This by Deborah Bedford

When David learns that he has a daughter from an affair, and that she needs a bone marrow transplant from his son, he confesses all to his wife and tries to put his marriage back together.

I really did not care for A Morning Like This. I felt like David expected cheap grace just because the child from his affair had cancer, and didn’t think he needed to do any real work of repentance. He was just awful to Abby, not allowing her the space to grieve the loss of the marriage she thought she had. He didn’t seem to have any sense of the depth of his sin, nor sorrow over wronging God. Where is the fear and trembling?
