From Library Journal
As Jake and Ellen Brighton prepare for a new life together on the eve of their youngest son's high school graduation, their life begins to fall apart. Forty-seven-year-old Ellen is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. While Ellen's mind and body degenerate, Jake questions God's justice in letting his wife suffer, and he confronts his own weaknesses as he contemplates breaking his wedding vows for the consolations and pleasures that intimacy with another woman will bring him in his time of need. First novelist Raney has fashioned a startlingly honest portrayal of love, commitment, and redemption in the midst of tragedy that will appeal strongly to fans of Janette Oke and Neva Coyle. Recommended for public libraries.

About the Author
Award-winning fiction author Deborah Raney has a gift for dealing with difficult issues in a sensitive and compassion manner.

As a popular writer, speaker, and stay-at-home mother of four, Deborah has her hands full. She is active in her community as a Sunday school teacher, a volunteer in her children's school, a member in her town's recreation-community education board, and yet manages to find time to write as well.

What if Christ did that to us when we get sick? These types of questions should be answered based on Scripture, when that happens, we don't have to lean to our own understanding about what should happen if a spouse becomes ill, or any family member for that matter.
This movie is wonderful, it also shows the struggles a family have as well as the love surrounding a loved one taking ill.
"Till Death Do We Part" is a beautiful commitment every spouse should live by just as Christ Himself does with us "I will never leave you, nor forsake you"; Remember - "God hates divorce".
