From the Back Cover

Sometimes hope for the future is found in the ashes of yesterday. EVEN NOW A young woman seeking answers to her heart's deepest questions. A man and woman driven apart by lies and years of separation...who have never forgotten each other. With hallmark tenderness and power, Karen Kingsbury weaves a tapestry of lives, losses, love, and faith---and the miracle of resurrection. EVER AFTER 2007 Christian Book of the Year Two couples torn apart -- one by war between countries, and one by a war within. In this moving sequel to Even Now, Emily Anderson, now twenty, meets the man who changes everything for her: Army reservist Justin Baker. Their tender relationship, founded on a mutual faith in God and nurtured by their trust and love for each other, proves to be a shining inspiration to everyone they know, especially Emily's reunited birth parents. But Lauren and Shane still struggle to move past their opposing beliefs about war, politics, and faith. When tragedy strikes, can they set aside their opposing views so that love---God's love---might win, no matter how great the odds?

My friend bought me "Even Now" / "Ever After" when I'd injured my back and had to stay in bed for weeks. I couldn't put it down! These are the only Karen Kingsbury books I've read, but--at least in these books--she does an amazing job of helping you connect with the characters. I literally felt what they were feeling. There were times that I laughed, and there was one point where I was crying so hard that I couldn't see the pages. I didn't expect the endings at all, and I think that's one of the reasons I enjoyed the books so much--they seemed so real. I would highly recommend both of these books to any woman.

This was my first Karen Kingsbury book and I must say, she is an exceptionally talented writer. I'm just not a big fan of books that are pretty much driven by sorrow. Spoiler alert!!! These two novels follow a very young couple (both are 17 years old) that conceive a child during their junior year of high school. Having a 17 year old daughter at this moment, I didn't find this the least bit romantic, but I cannot say I didn't know this was the theme of the first book. Sadly, these two young lovers are torn apart by their very self-centered parents and the results are that one of them finds Jesus and one of them...doesn't. The author hints at the fact that if their parents had allowed them to get married (at 17) then everything would have turned out great! I'm just not so sure about that. Eventually their (now adult) daughter (having been raised by her maternal grandparents) ends up reuniting the three of them (her Mom thought she was dead....long story) and encouraging her parents to rekindle their romance. Shortly after they are reunited, there is another tragedy, then there is some good stuff, followed by an even more significant tragedy. Followed by a romance that just doesn't have legs because its too short. Get it? (Sorry.) I will say that Ms. Kingsbury's intent seemed to be to call attention to our Military men and women and the sacrifices each one of them have made and make every day. This comes through so well that I was compelled to offer to pay for a young serviceman's lunch at McDonald's recently, but he informed me that they are not allowed to accept money. So I told I'd pray for him and I have.
I'm really not trying to totally diss this book. As I said, the writing is spot on. But if you read to escape for a couple of hours each night, like I do, these books are not going to do that for you. If Ms. Kingsbury has any books with a happier tone, I would be glad to read them!

EVEN NOW
Torn apart as teenagers by those who should have loved them best and expecting a child, Shane Galanter and Lauren Anderson searched for each other for years, but after eighteen years, they've almost given up hope. Emily, the daughter Lauren thought she had lost, wants to find her parents and possibly bring healing to the family. She might not be able to do that, but she believes God can do it through her.

The last book I read by Karen Kingsbury became so gut-retching that I wouldn't read it's sequel. For a while, I was afraid this one was going to be the same way. It was at first, but then things began to turn around, and it became more hopeful. In the end, I must say I really enjoyed it. The only thing I questioned with mechanics and research is if Lauren would have worn shorts to an orphanage in Afghanistan. I think a reporter there would try to respect their customs to some degree. I was disappointed when, near the end, political stereotypes were blatant. All Christians were Republican, conservative, and supported the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The few non-Christians were all liberal, anti-war, and probably Democrat. A good writer should do better than this.

EVEN AFTER
Emily Anderson has moved to the West Coast to be nearer her family and meets Justin Baker. She's never dated much and has devoted much of her time to soccer, writing, and college, but it doesn't take her long to realize Justin is the one for her. Remarkably, he feels the same about her. The only blot to her happiness is that her mother and father are having a hard time reconciling their opposing political views. Shouldn't a love that strong be enough? When real tragedy strikes, only God's strength and love will see them through and open another window to happiness.

Of all the karen Kingsberry books I've read, this is the best.
Even Now is the story of high school sweethearts.
Separated their senior year of high school after finding out that they are expecting a baby.
This is a great well written story. and the best is that part 2 is in the set.
Ever After is the story of the daughter of the sweethearts.
After being raised by her grandparents, she finds her parents on the internet and brings everyone together.
Then experiences love and loses it.
This books talks about the Afghanastan/Iraq war from a civilian view. But in understandable terms.
This book makes you cheer for, cry for and and want to hug the charactors.
