Coming Undone by Staci Stallings

My book review today is on the book Coming Undone by Staci Stallings. This story is a heartbreaking story of a man journey to find peace with a dying father and the situation of a broken family. It is very well written and will touch your heart. I enjoyed the book even though it dealt with the transition of life unto death in a hospice facility.

Ben Warren is a man going through life on the fast track. He works hard but plays harder with out a care in the world; until the day he receives word that his father has had a massive stroke. His father is his hero and his best friend, how can he live without him?

Kathryn Walker is a social worker in a hospice care facility at the hospital. It is her job to help the family and the patient make the transition from this life as easily as possible. Some families have a much more difficult time than others but she is there to support them no matter what. She believes this is her ministry and she has become very good at it.

When Kathryn meets the worldly Ben Warren she is drawn to him. His eyes are full of pain and she can tell that he is coming undone, is that why she is drawn to him or is it a God thing? Ben doesn't know God that much is obvious, is she there to lead him to him or is there more.

Ben doesn't believe in a God even though his father was a believer. Now his brother, that he had not seen since he was a small child and Kelly, Ben's best friend, are here and they believe in this God that the beautiful Kathryn seems to know and talk with. He doesn't understand any of it, he just knows the bottom has fallen out of his world and he has no way to fix it. the only time he can find peace is with Kathryn.

His journey is intriguing and inspiring at the same time. Even though the subject matter can be painful, especially at time it is a very uplifting story. You need a copy of this book. You can find out more about this book at  God bless you all and have a great week.
