A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokeness and Redemption by Al and Lisa Robertson - Book Review



A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokenness and Redemption


About The Book:

Alan and Lisa Robertson, members of America’s favorite back woods family and the Duck Commander Clan, take on the topic of relationships as they share the secrets that saved their marriage.

Infidelity, deceit, distrust, and shame. Unfortunately, these are recurring themes in many of today’s marriages in America—even in the family-values-promoting, Christian-based Robertson family.
 
With a romance that began in junior high, the couple got off to a rocky start but soon settled into married life and had two baby girls. Alan became a pastor in the church where his family had been members for years. Then, when Lisa had an affair, the heartache and the tension was very public.
 
But this is not a book about a marriage gone wrong. It is a candid story of rescued love and renewed commitment. After nearly getting divorced, Alan and Lisa came to terms with what went wrong in their marriage and both began the hard work of making it right. Now married for twenty-nine years, Alan and Lisa counsel couples in trouble and speak across the country—openly sharing their hardships, their journey to renewed commitment, and a thriving marriage.


My Thoughts:

Known as the "quieter" couple of the "Duck Dynasty" family, Al and Lisa Robertson truly lay out their lives and hearts in this book that details the extreme ups and devastating downs of their married life.

This was a difficult book to read as there were so many heart-breaking situations that this couple found themselves in, but it is also uplifting in that their faith eventually saw them through the darkness and now they share their lives hoping to help others in the same dire straits as they once were in.

Fans of the "Duck Dynasty" show will enjoy this rare look into the background of the Robertsons.  It will also appeal to those looking for inspiration for married life and relationships.
