Calm And Bright by Autumn Macarthur

Have you ever had a workaholic spouse?

Maddie Hughes is highly upset with her husband, Brad. Recently divorced, she’s never been able to forgive her ex for upsetting her “perfect” life. She’s left her home and followed him to the city. She was unhappy with her new environment – unhappy and alone. A new mom, she felt Brad had failed her since he spent ALL of his time at work. Now he wants to reunite this Christmas. Is there hope for them?

Brad only worked long hours so that he could provide a nice life for his family. Why can’t Maddie understand that? His father has convinced Brad that making lots of money, moving up the corporate ladder, is what he needs to do to be successful in life.

But, why can’t he have both, a successful career and his family, too?

I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was highly realistic. It’s a nice, sweet Christmas story.

Have you ever been upset with your spouse, because he was a workaholic? Did you divorce or were you able to work out your differences? Did you pray for guidance?
