Watch Over Me

Watch Over Me by Christa Parrish- information taken from the Bethany House website.

Her Rescue Might Be the Miracle They Needed

Things like this don't happen in Beck County.

Deputy Benjamin Patil is the one to find the infant girl, hours old, abandoned in a field.

As police work to identify the mother, Ben and his wife, Abbi, seem like the obvious couple to serve as foster parents. But the newborn's arrival opens old wounds for Abbi and shines a harsh light on how much Ben has changed since a devastating military tour.

Their marriage teeters on the brink and now they must choose to reclaim what they once had or lose each other forever.

Poignant and powerful, this novel confirms Christa Parrish as one of the most talented new voices to emerge in Christian fiction.

A past winner of Associated Press awards for her journalism, Christa Parrish now teaches literature and writing to high school students, is a homeschool mom, and lives near Saratoga Springs, New York. Visit


I loved Watch Over Me. Parrish created the most wonderfully unique cast of characters that make this book stand out from so many others I have read.

Here is just one small quote that I loved

"...who outside of God himself would have known a brilliant, deaf kid, a vegan hippie, and a toeless soldier would find themselves in some sort of family?"

That quote gives just the smallest glimpse into the wonderful characters in this book. This book is full of truth- how we deal with ourselves, each other and with God. It isn't always pretty and perfect. This book actually has a semblance of reality in it- the pain and the joy. I laughed and cried and was drawn into the storyline from start to finish. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.
