Winner in the 2012 Global Ebook Awards: Contingency by Paula Wiseman

Contingency, which has spent time on Amazon.com Christian bestseller lists and earned a number of awards, has another award to add to the list: Winner, Religion/Faith Fiction: 2012 Global Ebook Awards. The award winners were recently announced at the Global Ebook Awards official website, which is owned by self-publishing expert Dan Poynter.

About Contingency:

Bobbi Molinsky’s comfortable life is shattered when a forwarded email from her husband’s account lands in her inbox. The email teases, “My whole evening is free again.” After an angry confrontation with Chuck, she is left with the broken remains of an eighteen year marriage. Bobbi agrees forgiving Chuck is the right thing, the God-honoring thing to do, but it leaves her empty and isolated. Teaching her second-graders is a burden. Taking care of her boys saps all her energy. It seems God Himself has walked away, leaving her to struggle alone. Bobbi can’t deny the transformation in Chuck, but genuine forgiveness requires trust, and trust is a risk she’s not willing to take. Can she let go of her deepest, most primal fears and save her marriage?
