The Dearly Beloved is the story of a friendship between two couples over many years. The men are both pastors. One of the wives is a nonbeliever and the other is the daughter of a minister. I love a book with characters that I can care about and want to follow. The Dearly Beloved is exactly that book. There are plenty of discussions about faith and doubt, but this novel is really about friendship and marriage and allowing others to be their true selves. I am a nonbeliever myself, but I do believe in the power of kindness and this book reaffirms that belief.
