Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Jade Connor and Tanner Eastman were best friends until a family tragedy tore them apart. Almost ten years later, they find each other again, and their innocent childhood feelings blossom into a love that is soon crushed by his mother's lies. When Jade's son is taken from her ten years later because her strong Christian beliefs make her appear fanatical, she must turn to the one man she never thought to trust again. She hopes he can use his legal skills to return the son he never knew he had. As Christian beliefs war with a system that views strong convictions as suspect, Kingsbury (Waiting for Morning) offers a basic, unsurprising "love lost, love found" plot, but her unusual legal twist makes for interesting developments. Purchase where demand for fact-based fiction is strong.

Format: Paperback
A Moment of Weakness is yet another triumph from Kingsbury. She portrays Jade and Tanner as earnest, yet flawed, Christians whose one night of passion leads them down rocky roads that change the course of their lives. Growing up on the "wrong side of the tracks," Jade had a loose mother and drunken father and no spiritual upbringing whatsoever. After her mother leaves them, Jade spends the rest of her sad childhood taking care of her alcolholic father and trying desperately to rise above her circumstances. In the meantime, her childhood playmate, Tanner Eastman, with a wealthy and cultured background, lives his life mostly as his parents expect him to, with one exception. He becomes a born-again Christian, something his overbearing and domineering mother cannot understand. When Jade and Tanner meet again as young adults, they realize how much they love each other and want to be together. Tanner leads Jade to Christ, and they make a commitment to each other and to God to stay pure until the time that they can marry, when Tanner finishes his law degree and Jade her nursing degree. But Christian young people have hormones, too, and a night of unbridled passion between the two of them changes things forever. Kingsbury does an excellent job of portraying Christians as real people with human characteristics. Without being "preachy," Kingsbury shows how lives are affected in one single "Moment of Weakness."

I loved this book and its characters. I took it on vacation with me, and could not sleep because I was so entranced. So much for relaxing! I thought the book was realistic, addressing major life issues, without being preachy. I think it's a great read for a young girl who has yet to make a choice for abstinence.

Format: Paperback
This is the second Karen Kingsbury novel I have read, the first being One Tuesday Morning. For the second time, I have come away with a respect for the quality of writing that Karen Kingsbury produces.
Her characters are not storybook, because their lives are flawed as are all of us and yet she accurately chronicles the work of God upon the hearts of his children and their response to the Holy Spirit's prodding.
A Moment of Weakness is not for the faint of heart--I wouldn't recommend it for children because of the complicated plot lines. However, for those who did pick up this book, it will give you a fresh perspective of God's incredible grace and love in bringing his children back from the slough of thier own sins and into a loving embrace.
You will not be able to put this book down as you find yourself heavily steeped into the lives of the characters of this great tale.
Buy this book--its definitely a one or two-nighter.

Format: Paperback
This was a powerful story of sin, forgiveness and love. The journey you take with Jade and Tanner will have you so entranced you will not be able to put this book down. Kingsbury does an excellent job portraying two young Christians. They start out as childhood friends, and then where separated for years.They find each other again, they enter a moment of weakness that turns into another separation between them for another decade. But only this time with a huge secret that Jade keeps from Tanner. This story sends a message of two humans, who are Christians, making a mistake. With the help of Tanner's mother, it drives the biggest wedge between Jade and Tanner, the second decade separation. When they meet again, they are grown adults. They choose this time to follow the Lord's plan, even though they were not sure what it was. Their faith was strong ending this story with a wonderful bang. I won't go into much detail, you must read this. We all commit sin, just like Jade and Tanner did. Kingsbury uses the perfect scriptures in the story at the right times. She reminds us how powerful and loving and forgiving our Lord is with the scriptures. Hats off to Kingbury on this one, get your tissues ready.

Format: Paperback
This was an excellent book dealing with mistakes some people make in life.I enjoyed it because there are not many books that talk about these issues. It shows that even Christians can make mistakes and how God is still willing to forgive them time after time. I recommend this and any other book by Karen Kingsbury, but be sure to have tissues because it is a very touching book and you are sure to cry!

Format: Paperback
Karen Kingsbury has written yet another great read. All of Ms. Kingbury's books have a romantic touch but do not lead the mind to impure thoughts. This book touches on a subject that many people struggle with, but hide from because of shame. I recommend this to everyone who loves getting lost in pages of trial and strength, heartache and sheer joy. But, make sure you read "Waiting for Morning" before this or it will give away a few things in that book.

I couldn't put this book down, I started it at 8:00 last night and didn't go to bed until I finished it. I can't wait for Karen to write another book, I have read all of them. She makes you feel so close to God. You won't go wrong if you buy this book.

Format: Paperback
This was such a good book that I literally couldn't put it down! Karen Kingsbury has a way of writing that not only keeps you hooked until the very last page, but she incorporates scripture and Christian values throughout her writings. With her books, you never know what's going to happen next! This particular book focuses on the issue of having sex outside of marriage and the consequences that came out of it. Once you start reading this book, don't plan on getting anything done until your finished!!
