From AudioFile

Sandra Burr's powerful narration portrays the Baxter family in the best and the worst of circumstances as the Redemption series comes to an end. Burr's characterizations are layered with such genuine emotion and depth that they give form and face to each character. From Elizabeth's battle with cancer to daughter Ashley's wedding to the bittersweet meeting of Elizabeth and movie star Dayne Matthews, the story depicts the foundation of it all--the love and devotion of John and Elizabeth for each other. Burr captures each character's intimate struggles, joys, and dependence on God to carry them through. This memorable story and Burr's excellent narrative skills will linger long in the listener's memory.

Format: Paperback
This is the last book in the Redemption series, and it was so beautifully written. The book focused on Ashley and Landon's wedding, Elizabeth's struggle with cancer, and Erin trying to adopt a baby, as well as Dane and how he fit into the Baxter family.

This book showed how much Elizabeth and John truly love each other. They have gone through so much. It is revealed in this book a secret that they shared from before they got married. The 2 stood by each other then and now, through Elizabeth's illness. I loved how Elizabeth managed to stay with the Lord, through her frustration and to the end.

The theme in this book is about reuniting family. That is showed so well, with all of the Baxters gathering for Ashley's wedding and supporting each other through all sorts of trials. This book gives a great example of how families should stick together, as a good family gives each other so much support. I would have loved growing up in this family. They went through so many trials, but they always had each other.

I look forward to reading the Firstborn series, and reading more about Dane.

I can't remember ever being so moved by a book. The story line was excellent, as with this entire series. I was very satisfied with the resolution, and now look forward eagerly to the spinoff series about to start. Living through the horrible cancer was so real--I identified so much with the mother, even though I've never been close to anyone who died from cancer. I'll never forget this series, and this book in particular. Yes, it was sad, but also showed the reader how to see the underlying joy. Most of all, it teaches a lesson about trusting in God's goodness. I'm Catholic, and my priest always likes to remind us that "God is good all the time, and all the time God is good." This book would serve as a fine example of that kind of faith.

Start with the first book in this series and read all five! Just make sure you have plenty of time and plenty of tissue (right, akmom1999???) These books aren't preachy or gloomy, but filled with good lessons and hope. They made me want to open my Bible - which is always a good thing. I felt like I knew each member of the Baxter family and am sorry to see the stories end. When you get through with these, read Francine Rivers' Mark of the Lion series!

Format: Paperback
I have grown very attached to the Baxter's. (I didn't start out attached. I made the mistake of reading the 3rd book 1st...not knowing it was a series. At that time, I would have just rated it 3 stars...an average read. But I liked it enough to go back and start the series!) I have enjoyed following the entire family....and especially Ashley and Landon. I'm sure had I read the 3rd book in order, I would have found it every bit as good as the first!

This final book was wonderful in everyway...except that it was an end! Elizabeth was strong and a leader during her illness. I will miss following the Baxter's in their everyday life...does Hayley make a complete recovery? Does Dayne ever let his family know who he is. I"m hoping to see more of the Baxters as I read Dayne's story in the Firstborn series. I'm sure I'll enjoy the books, regardless!

I have read all the books in this series and this is the best by far. Kingsbury and Smalley are quite talented at reaching out to you and pulling you completely and utterly into the story. I have never cried so much in reading a book, as I did with this one. There were tears of joy, triumph, heartache and heartbreak. I began this book on a Monday morning and by Tuesday afternoon, I was through. If you read only one book of fiction this year on the message of God's loving power, make sure the names Kingsbury and Smalley are on the front cover.

I really, really tried to like this series. I've heard such great things about the author's work so I read the entire series. My "heart dropped to my knees" too many times to count, and I honestly got very bored with the unbelievable characters. In this series the "Christain, Godly" contingent is cast with a brush of rediculously attractive people with character flaws that, without fail, turn out beautifully. The non-Christians are drug- and child-abusers. It was terribly predictable as you know the Christians will "win" in the end and the non-Christians will get their "just desserts."

The last two books, in particular, struck a very sour chord with me. I am a strong Christian woman, 51 years old, who is currently in treatment for breast cancer with heavy lymph node involvement. My name also happens to be Elizabeth. However, my experience with this disease is much, much different. Elizabeth's treatment was 8 weeks from start to finish? And then she's on her deathbed within a few weeks after that? My treatment will last six to eight months and I'm far, far from my deathbed. That is some amazingly aggressive cancer she's got!

I also have a friend who's daughter was in a near-drowning accident as little Hayley in this series. Again, Hayley seems to be recovering gradually over a period of time. I know they acknowledge that she is doing things the doctors said she'd never do. But why, in this series, does everything turn out rosy? Even in the most devout and honest Christian families I know, people die horrible, painful deaths. Marriages fail and are not restored. Children leave the "fold" and do not return within a year totally reconciled to God. Sometimes people make bad choices in love and God doesn't "let them off the hook.
