Author: Darlene Shortridge

My favorite quotes from book:


  • God knew each heart and where each woman was coming from. They had been meeting for years together to pray.
  • This is the one, Lord. I don’t understand it, but I trust you, and I will do as you ask.
  • Money was always just a little too tight. Expectations were always a little too high, and too many times reality was a bit too much of a letdown.
  • When a woman entered the group, she added her unsaved loved ones’ names to the prayer list?
  • She was tired, hungry, impatient, and desperately praying for a miracle from a God she had refused to serve.

Characters in book: Jessi & Mark Jenson, Ethan, Olivia, Merry, Julia and Chaplin Bob

(Info from back of book) Jessi hung up the phone. That was the fifth time she tried calling home with no answer. She had just started eating lunch when she remembered she had forgotten to call home. It was something she would never forgive herself for. It wasn’t until lunchtime that Jessi remembered to call home. No answer. She tried calling several times while she ate her lunch. Still no answer. She closed her eyes and rested her arms and head on her desk. She breathed deeply, wishing she had remembered to call earlier.

Until Forever is a story of a young family that is torn apart by the devastating effects of alcoholism. Can healing take place in a relationship when an unforgivable act is committed? Will Jessi's pain and Mark's guilt keep them apart forever, or will unforeseen circumstances bind them together?
