More About the Author
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.

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!
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 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.
