About the Book
Book: Enduring Love
Author: Danyelle Scroggins
Genre: Christian fiction
Release Date: March 16, 2018
No one ever truly realizes the power of their love, until love is tested and they have to endure things unimaginable and sometimes hurtful. And if the truth is declared, no one wants to but…
Sometimes we find ourselves standing in the test of love and this is exactly where Priscilla Marshall finds herself. Married to Steven since she graduated college, together they were the perfect couple. Both making successful business moves, both loved their choices, but one had a secret that could change their lives.
Priscilla, now forced to make a plan to secure her future, finds out that a plan without God involved is not a plan at all because “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21).
What will God use to make this woman’s plan come full circle with His own, and after the test, will they find that they truly do have an Enduring Love?

The book is a very realistic look at a marriage and how easily we can take things for granted. Priscilla is a very confident woman who seems to have it all. She has a great job, wonderful husband and enough money to live comfortably. I noticed that there is a bit of talk about intimate relations in the story that were off putting. I will say I’m a big prude when it comes to discussing sex or even reading about it. I think the author could have left some of the context of the story out and still gotten her point across.
Now I can focus on the really good points of the story. The main focus was two fold. There are secrets and lies between Priscilla and her husband. It is so easily to find fault with your spouse that you forget that it takes two to make a marriage. One of the best parts of the entire story is when each of the main characters find themselves crying out to God for help. Priscilla is ready to give up on her marriage until a special woman in her life ministers to her. It was very well written and exactly what Priscilla needed to hear.
Steven has his own sin to deal with and I loved how he found help by visiting a pastor. The pastor does not condemn him, but leads him in prayer and guides him to repentance. Love is special and can endure anything the enemy tries to destroy if you trust God. I kept thinking about the verse, “The love of money is the root of all evil.” This verse is perfect for this story. The author also deals with lust and I thought she did it in a way that doesn’t condemn, but leads you to ask forgiveness and know that you are set free. I appreciate the many scriptures used in the story. I found the story to be a great message in forgiveness and unconditional love.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.

More from Danyelle
I am so elated that you are a part of this awesome Enduring Love blog tour. I’ve always been a love child per se…loving all things romance. When my second grade teacher introduced me to Amelia Bedelia books by Herman Parish, I knew I would write. Then my mom introduced me to romance by Danielle Steels and the bad girl of books—Jackie Collins. Finally, I decided I’d be the Danyelle with the “y” who will write books about love.
Life has been so rewarding as I finally realize that everything I’ve ever faced was simply for my good. The good, bad, and the ugly now find itself woven in the corridors of my books and I’m grateful to be able to share stories with the world of God’s goodness, grace, mercy, and love.
And you know what’s even greater? We don’t have to be perfect to be a part of His family, to receive His love, or to be a recipient of His grace.
He has shown me that I can write about love, problems, situations, and circumstances that we face as humans but also show how we overcome the situations and circumstances we face, by the blood of the lamb and the words of our testimony.
As you read this book or any of my books, understand that they are in fact a testimony to God’s goodness, grace, mercy, and love towards His people.
Be Blessed, Danyelle Scroggins
