9781590522271: Jumping in Sunset

Divorce is not just a fact in Christian circles, it's a common occurrence. Yet most Christian fiction dealing with marital struggles insists that reconciliation is always possible. Jumping in Sunset shows how God's abundant love works through situations where the neat, accepted answers don't. Meet Pamela Thornton, who has a comfortable faith, a twenty-year marriage, and a solid relationship with her college-bound daughter - when her husband announces he's leaving her to marry another woman. Slowly, Pamela learns to understand and experience God within the impossible truth that her marriage has come to an end.

About the Author:

Dawn Ringling graduated from Biola University in 1985 with a degree in communications/creative writing. She was born a writer, in fact, she barely knew her ABCs when she scribbled her first stories and poems on the back of church bulletins, grocery lists, grocery lists, and any other scratch paper she could find!
Until 1990, she was manager of publications for Biola, where she helped to develop a fledging advertising department into an award-winning producer of college promotional and alumni materials. A mother of three and full-time writer, Dawn lives in Minnesota where, in her free time, she and her family spend summers at their lake cabin and winters skiing and skating and truly embracing the beauty of the Midwest.

From Publishers Weekly:

Readers of evangelical Christian fiction should welcome this novel for its acknowledgment that sometimes marriages between two believers fail, and resolution isn't possible. Pamela Thornton and her husband, Paul, are everyone's ideal Christian couple: successful, outwardly moral and almost finished raising their only child, Angie. Then Paul drops a bombshell-he's leaving Pamela to marry Dana, a woman he volunteers with at church. Paul wallows in self-justification as he convinces himself he was naive and hurried when he met Pamela and has finally found the one woman he was meant to love. As Paul sees it, "Wasn't the smoothness of this transition out of his marriage a sign... that God smiled upon his and Dana's love?" Pamela's story is believable and poignant, as Ringling chronicles her depression, denial, anger and pain. Readers will cheer as Pamela finds hard-won independence and self-esteem through her photography and recognizes the value of her northern Minnesota roots. Although Angie's narratives are a necessary component of the novel, they are unfortunately told through CBA fiction's well-worn device of italicized journal entries, which lessen their impact. There are a few other missteps-Pamela finds support in her best friend, Starla, who speaks in an unconvincing vernacular ("Ya have no work"), and there is an unnecessary subplot involving Paul's childhood. However, the characters are multifaceted, and their emotions, even when disturbing, are believable. This novel deserves a place in CBA bookstores for its genuine portrayal of imperfect Christian people.
