A Moment of Weakness is a captivating story of human weakness and divine faithfulness. Jade and Tanner were childhood friends until scandal drove them apart. Then one golden summer they found each other again and shared dreams of forever. But in a moment of weakness they made a decision that would tear them apart for nearly a decade. Now, Jade’s unfaithful husband wants to destroy her in a custody battle that is about to shock the nation. Only one man can help her in her darkest hour. And only one old woman knows the secret about that summer—and the truth that can set them all free.

Quotes & Awards

  • “As Christian beliefs war with a system that views strong convictions as suspect, Kingsbury offers a…‘love lost, love found’ plot, but her unusual legal twist makes for interesting developments. Purchase where demand for fact-based fiction is strong.”

    " I've tried to read this book a couple of times. It starts really slow and is extremely frustrating to read for the first few chapters. It does get better and is touching and finishes well. "

    " Jade and Tanner as earnest, yet flawed, Christians whose one night of passion leads them down rocky roads that change the course of their lives. Growing up on the "wrong side of the tracks," Jade had a loose mother and drunken father and no spiritual upbringing whatsoever. After her mother leaves them, Jade spends the rest of her sad childhood taking care of her alcolholic father and trying desperately to rise above her circumstances. In the meantime, her childhood playmate, Tanner Eastman, with a wealthy and cultured background, lives his life mostly as his parents expect him to, with one exception. He becomes a born-again Christian, something his overbearing and domineering mother cannot understand. When Jade and Tanner meet again as young adults, they realize how much they love each other and want to be together. Tanner leads Jade to Christ, and they make a commitment to each other and to God to stay pure until the time that they can marry, when Tanner finishes his law degree and Jade her nursing degree. But Christian young people have hormones, too, and a night of unbridled passion between the two of them changes things forever. "

    " Hard book to rate since I love some parts and was annoyed with other parts. The most interesting part was the fight for religious freedom, which I found very enlightening and well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/18/2014

    " I loved this book when I first read it years ago. It was an example of how any action, any decision, could effect your life in ways you can't imagine. Kingsbury's books always have a strong moral compass at the center, which isn't a bad thing, but I have found that now, being older and more in touch with the world around me, I find her stories to simple and slightly cheesy. They are good simple reads but I often find the characters too right and honorable. Rarely are people that perfect. It is not a reflection of real life. Even when the characters are flawed they still seem to good to be true. "

    " I read this for a DLS RA SIG on Christian/Religious/Inspirational Fiction. Lots of praying. Lots of hearing God. Lots of fear that the government is out to take away all of thier religious freedoms. While not remotely my religious, political, or moral beliefs, I found this surprisingly readable. "
