About the Author

As military brat, Kimberly has traveled the world over, but grew up mostly in Hawaii and Virginia. Her father’s duty stations took them everywhere from Japan to ½ the continental U.S. Since 1990, Kimberly has called Oklahoma home. It is where her family and her heart are – even though she always wishes she were closer to the beach. Kimberly has been married for 13 wonderful years to her husband, Todd, and they have a wonderfully creative 10 year-old boy, who also likes to write. Kimberly will be quick to say how happy they both make her. She says, ‘with the two of them in my life, it’s a never ending journey and never gets boring.” Kimberly’s first book, Finding Kylie, was published in 2008. Finding Kylie has received numerous positive reviews and was recently converted into a screenplay. Now that Facing Redemption is completed Kimberly is working on the final book in the series, which will follow Anne’s journey. Look for Broadcast Affair coming soon.

More About the Author

Author of Finding Kylie, Facing Redemption, and Coming Home, Kimberly McKay finishes out her series with Saving Grace. Kimberly was asked to co-write her first script to convert her first book, Finding Kylie, with John Schwab, an award winning film producer and actor in the UK. They are in the final stages of editing the script for Finding Kylie and are set to hit the film market in the next two years. Currently, she's releasing her fifth novel, Second Chances, in 2016 and is starting her sixth novel, Endless Possibilities, set for 2018.

Kimberly started her career as a freelance writer for the state paper in Oklahoma. Kimberly's gift is being able to place the reader in her characters' shoes, by conveying emotion and drawing you in.

As a marine brat, she traveled the world over, but grew up mostly in Hawaii, Japan, and Virginia. Her father's duty stations took the family everywhere from Okinawa, Japan to half the continental U.S. Since 1990, Kimberly has called Oklahoma home, where she and her husband reside with their son and two rescue dogs.

I got this book because it was sold in the Christian section. I expected a story about redemption and did receive that. However, the gratuitous sex references and the use of crass language ruined it for me and I lost all desire to finish it.

This was a terrific read!! I hadn't read Finding Kylie,but you get enough background that you can read this without reading the prequel! This really drew me in and I felt the pain and joy of all the characters! I loved Chastity,and although I wanted to hate her Father,I felt his pain too! This story made me cry,but there were lighter moments too,the wedding day made me laugh so much,and the Author said she took that from her own wedding day,I liked that!

There is only one thing that keeps me from giving this five stars....the ending! I realise there is another book in this series coming out,but..the last few books I've read have left me feeling annoyed at the end,as has this one! It ended so abruptly,and I find this happening with more and more books,having said that,I will read Coming Home when it comes out,and I feel I have to go back and read Finding Kylie too!! You wont regret reading this one!

This book needs an editor. There are too many typos throughout the manuscript and the writing is all over the place. There are too many disparate elements and no flow to the storytelling. For example, the story suddenly veers into the background of the friend of the main character and does an info-dump about how her parents died in a car crash and how she took care of her sister from a young age right in the middle of a scene that has nothing to do with it. This would have been okay if this piece was somehow interwoven into the main storyline but it acts like a road bump and comes in the way of reading. I was left wondering why it was where it was. There are too many such abrupt shifts and information dumps that demonstrate haphazard storytelling. Sorry, but could not finish this book. Couldn't hold my interest.

Facing Redemption has an interesting (although unrealistic) storyline and strives to share the importance and struggle of forgiveness. The book demonstrates the importance of friends and family, and also illustrates dysfunctional relationships.

Since this was described as a Christian book, I was quite unprepared for the use of offensive words in the writing. While they were only scattered through the book (to make it feel more "real" to readers?), their inclusion did not contribute to the story at all. I also found the seeming preoccupation with sex to be disturbing. I understand the author's desire to show a struggle within the mind in choosing abstinence in a relationship; but, it seemed that the topic of premarital sex took predominance in too many places. (I do appreciate that it was not written in a sensual manner.)

As far as Christian elements, I felt that it lacked depth. The characters showed a growing awareness of God, but didn't demonstrate a relationship with Him. There was no show of repentance and submission, just a gradual change of attitude. The near-exception was the father, who was repentant of the "big sin" in his past and tried to make amends.

There were many technical problems in the writing: typographical and punctuation errors, wrong word choices, and an "epilogue" (rather than "prologue") at the beginning of the book. The story included flashbacks of the father to his military days, which only added confusion to the story and made it feel disjointed. A good editor could have helped elevate this book.

I didn't plan to finish the book; but, the storyline compelled me to keep reading to see how it would end.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars only because it has a lot of info about God and faith in Him, but also had a few cuss words. I prefer my Christian fiction without those!

I don't know how this book got so many glowing reviews. I found the story line boring and disjointed. The character development -- even of the bad-guy-turned-good-guy -- was almost nonexistent. Most of the cookie-cutter characters were too good to be real people. Way too many perfect marriages. Even their life tragedies are cliches. And then, about 1/4 of the way into the book the author uses one of the characters to preach to the reader about asking Jesus into your heart, an indication of the author's narrow frame of reference for the human experience on this planet, which explained the narrow, cardboard character of the book.
I never finished the book. I quit reading when it started preaching at me. Fortunately, I got it from the free lending library so it didn't cost me anything.

After reading and loving Finding Kylie, I wasn't at all surprised Facing Redemption was impossible to put down. The storyline kept me completely entertained and the character development was so human I felt personally connected. I couldn't wait to finish the book, but was disappointed when I had no more pages to turn. I am anxiously waiting for the sequel!

I liked the people in this book and their experiences. I did not like the fact that there are many spelling and grammatical errors in this book. Also many words that are used wrong. This author needs to spend more time in proofing, or hire someone who knows grammar and spelling to proof for her.
