Book Description

September 13, 2011 Forever Faithful
The entire best-selling Forever Faithful trilogy, now available in one volume:

Waiting for Morning
   A drunk driver...a deadly accident...a dream destroyed.  When Hannah Ryan loses her husband and oldest daughter to a drunk driver, she is consumed with hate and revenge.  Ultimately, it is a kind prosecutor, a wise widow, and her husband's dying words that bring her the peace that will set her free and let her live again.

A Moment of Weakness
   When childhood friends Jade and Tanner reunite as adults, they share their hearts, souls, and dreams of forever--until a fateful decision tears them apart.  Now, nearly a decade later, Jade's unfaithful husband wants to destroy her in a custody battle that is about to send shock waves across the United States.  Only one man can help Jade in her darkest hour.  And only one old woman knows the truth that can set them all free.

Halfway to Forever
   Matt and Hannah...Jade and Tanner--after already surviving much, these couples must now face the greatest struggles of their lives: parental losses and life-threatening illness threaten to derail their faith and sideline their futures.  Can Hannah survive the loss of an adopted daughter?  Will Tanner come through decades of lonliness only to face losing Jade one final time?

Review

Praise for Karen Kingsbury’s Books

Waiting for Morning

“What a talent! I love her work.”
-Gary Smalley, best-selling author

“Kingsbury not only entertains but goes a step further and confronts readers with situations that are all too common, even for Christians. At the same time, it will remind believers of God’s mercy and challenge them to pray for America. The book…reveals God’s awesome love and His amazing ability to turn moments of weakness into times of strengthening.”
-Christian Retailing, Spotlight Review

A Moment of Weakness

“Kingsbury spins a tale of love and loss, lies and betrayal, that sent me breathlessly turning pages.”
-Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Bookends and Mixed Signals

“A gripping love story. A Moment of Weakness demonstrates the devastating consequences of wrong choices, and the long shadows deception casts over the lives of God’s children. It also shows the even longer reach of God’s providence, grace, and forgiveness.”
-Randy Alcorn, best-selling author

“One message shines clear and strong through Karen Kingsbury’s A Moment of Weakness: Our loving God is a God of second chances.”
-Angela Elwell Hunt, best-selling author of The Immortal

Halfway to Forever

Halfway to Forever has believable characters you care about. You’ll feel their tension, heartbreak, and joy. Karen Kingsbury sweeps readers right in. She really knows how to tell a story!”
-Randy Alcorn, best-selling author of Deadline and The Ishbane Conspiracy

“Karen Kingsbury’s Halfway to Forever is an emotionally charged novel of heartache and hope. Keep the tissues handy!”
-Robin Lee Hatcher, author of Ribbon of Years and The Story Jar

“Karen’s signature style will inspire you and keep you turning pages until the last luscious page.”
-Patricia Hickman, award-winning author of Katrina’s Wings and Sandpebbles

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting For Morning: A Dream Destroyed October 9, 2003
Format:Paperback
"There was a horrific jolt and the defending sound of twisting, sparking metal and shattering glass. Jenny screamed, but it was to late. The explorer took to the air like a child's toy spinning wildly and coming to rest wrapped around a telephone pole a hundred feet away." In Karen Kingsbury's Waiting For Morning, the tragedies represent life experiences. This book is interesting and heart warming. It is hard to put down.
Hannah Ryan waits for her two girls and wonderful husband to come home from a summer camping trip. It is a perfect Christian family with nothing missing or where anything could go wrong. They got in a wreck with an unstable drunk driver. Instantly, her oldest daughter and husband died. The youngest daughter lives, but goes through severe trauma. Hannah tries to convict the driver of first-degree murder. It will be the biggest charge for drunk driving in the history of California. At the same time, it just makes things insoluble between her daughter and herself when both are bewildered about the accident.
Kingsbury makes the characters very easy to understand. Hannah Ryan is portrayed as a dynamic character in direct characterization. Jenny, her daughter, a very round character, struggles with so many difficulties after the deaths of her family members. Both struggle with unspeakable feelings of sorrow and rage that fuse into one chilling purpose for living. All Hannah wants is revenge against Brian Wesley, the drunk driver that causes her all the pain. In fury of things going on, Hannah shuts the Lord out of her life, the biggest mistake of all.
It is not very difficult nor too easy to follow along with. The book's superior ways in the dialogue is extremely intelligible. Although the characters are older, the reading is not too mature for younger teens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantabulous 3-N-1 Read! September 25, 2011
Format:Paperback
Wow! Three books in one!
Waiting for Morning: the first book in the series. It is a heart.rending read that left me feeling bereft but also left me with high hope...there is always a tomorrow. Imagine losing your beloved husband and oldest daughter to death caused by a drunk driver who walks away from the accident barely scathed!
I felt Hannah's despair <truly did!> because Ms. Kingsbury writes with such emotion! One can feel the emotions of the character.
But then Brian, the drunk, who killed Hannah's husband and daughter, has a story too. Can he overcome?
Will hate, angry and despair take up the meaningful lives of two people who don't even know each other?
Great read! Forgiveness and God's mercies are ever so evident in this read!

A Moment of Weakness: the second book in this series. And a WOW! touched my heart because it.so.could.have.happened!
A man and a woman each happily ensconced in their own lives and then one.day they meet again! They laugh, they reunite as they were in the "old days" and they share on an intimate level.
Jade has issues from her past. an unforgiving father and an adulterous mother. Both have made Jade feel unloved because of their selfish acts.
When Jade and Tanner reunite, they feel like a missing piece has been found but they both get too involved emotionally to step back and do the right thing.
One small step leads to another, then another until the whole scene is mess!
A grandtastic read about letting go and letting God fix it! Be warned *Kleenexes are needed!*

Halfway to Forever: the conclusion.
Bringing the couples, Matt and Hannah; Jade and Tanner, all together in this last read.
I love a good conclusion, closure that leaves me feeling that it has all worked out well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting For Morning June 10, 2000
By Maura
Format:Paperback
The night the Blazers lost their final game to the Lakers, I met author Karen Kingsbury sitting next to me on a plane from Chicago to Portland. Fate is strong and I believe that God has plans for us that only he knows. She gave me her book, Waiting For Morning, and I could not put it down. I have already read all her true crime books (another favorite genre of mine) and recently started reading Christian books. I could not put this down. It moved me. It showed real emotion. It is written in an organized and real manner. And you will not be able to wait for the end. Books which cause me to think about my own life rank high in my charts...this is one of those page-turners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Book... July 13, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
I read this at a local bookstore. Took me a few days...

I have to say, the book was inspiring and somewhat sad, though in the end I was touched how Hannah Ryan finally realized that she had to forgive, and learned how she never knew her husband had wanted her to all along, even though she did go through lots of trouble for revenge. The book itself shows how someone dealed with their anger and and desire for revenge, and no matter what you do to that person who caused you the pain, the one you love will always be dead.

Even though I am not Christian, it was an inspiring and great book to read. I would love to look for more books like this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars It was a painful read.. April 17, 2008
Format:Paperback
I want to preface this review with a truth. I have loved every book by Karen Kingsbury that has graced my hands. This was the first book of hers that I was unable to finish and had to make myself work to get halfway through the book.

A lot of the difficulty was lack of intervention for Jenny (I have not finished this and do not know what happened to her):
1- the school would have stepped in with a counselor even before speaking to a parent.
2- Web searches are heavily monitored for dangerous searches and most results are blocked before students can get to them. I would even hazard a guess that they could track it back to what student did the search.
3- Hannah is a mother first and I don't care how selfish she is... you don't turn your back on your child when they are showing such obvious signs of trouble.

This book just made my insides crawl and even though the book of Lamenations was mentioned and there were a few verses referred to.. The constant presence of humble christians did not seem to exist in this book. WHY did the church family back off? Why wasn't this discussed at all? So much was glossed over that could have opened my eyes and my heart to this story.

I truly hope I enjoy Mrs. Kingsbury's next book as much the books I have read in the past.
