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!
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
