About The Face of the Earth:When Mitchell Brannon’s beloved wife of twenty years kisses him goodbye one autumn morning, he has little idea that his life is about to change forever. Mitch returns from work early that evening, surprised Jill’s car isn’t in the garage. Her conference in Kansas City is only a few hours’ drive from their little town of Sylvia, Missouri. But her voice on the answering machine makes him smile. “Hey, babe, I’m just now checking out of the hotel, but I’ll stop and pick up something for dinner. Love you.”

Mitch sets the table with their best china and lights some candles, looking forward to their first weekend as empty nesters.
But at eight o’clock, the candles have burned to stubs and Jill still hasn’t shown up. Mitch tries her cell phone only to get her voice mail over and over again. Their two college kids haven’t heard from their mom either.
At midnight, Mitch’s irritation turns to dread. And later, when the police and Missouri Highway Patrol have turned up nothing, the Kansas City hotel calls to say they’ve found property belonging to Jill in a hotel maid’s possession.
Mitch enlists the help of their next-door neighbor, Jill’s best friend, Shelley, and together they search for clues to Jill’s disappearance. As days turn into weeks and weeks into months, Mitch and Shelley’s friendship grows ever closer–and decidedly complicated with Jill as the tie that binds them together. Just when Shelley decides to finally reveal her feelings for Mitch, a clue to Jill’s whereabouts is uncovered. But every lead seems to be a dead end, and Mitch wonders how he can honor the vows he made to a woman who has seemingly disappeared off the face of the earth.Purchase a copy: http://ow.ly/kFdwM

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Wow, this book is awesome! Deborah Raney is truly an amazing, gifted and talented story teller. The Face of the Earth is one of my favorite all time books! I was hooked from the first page, and I couldn’t put the book down because I had to find out what happened to Jill! I wanted to be there for Mitch and their two kids, just for support if nothing else. I can’t even imagine waiting for someone you love, and they never show up. What would you do in that situation? There are so many emotions flying around in this story, so many ups and downs, twists and turns, it was difficult for me to think about anything else except for, ‘what happened to Jill.’
This book is chunked full of love, loss, forgiveness and trust in the Lord. If you enjoy fiction, you must read this book! You will be very well entertained! So pick up your copy today. I received this book from Litfuse to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
