Now to the BIG question--it hit me during the "letter reading scene".Read more ›
And while the Baxters have always been a bit unrealistic... this book went too far. FIVE family members died simultaneously and a week later everybody was at a birthday party? Nobody got angry or fell apart or questioned God? They all just immediately accepted God's will and a year later were fine? Give me a break. REAL grief is ugly and messy and does not resolve itself so quickly. This could have been a good opportunity to deal with the issues and pain of tragedy (she did a good job when Ashley's baby died) and how faith can survive even the worst agony. But being fake and putting a happy face on suffering just cheapens real faith and perpetuates the myth that "real Christians" are always joyful.
After reading Loving, I intended not to read another Karen Kingsbury book, however I couldn't resist reading the last Baxter book. I found myself thinking..... again?! How many tragedies can one family go through? Murder, fatal pregnancy defects, cheating, breast cancer, 911, drug addiction, a drowning and the list goes on. I guess I was hoping for a happy ending.If she was going to pick one family for this to happen to, I guess she did pick the right one. There wasn't a book about Erin that I remember so i did feel a little less connected to her and her family... but still. Also, I felt a bit disconnected from the family's reaction to the tragedy. No one got angry at God. They all just accepted that they were in a better place. This just seems unrealistic to me. I also didn't like that she put Bailey and Brandon in this book. It did not fit in with the storyline at all and after all the hooplah with the last book, you would think she would stay far away from that topic. (and to add in that Cody and Andy were engaged????) Blegh! The parts of the book that I liked reminded me of "like dandelion dust". Overall, the book was ok. It wasn't what I hoped for but it was far better than the series on Bailey. It was a little more true to her older writing style. Anyways, I'm still not ready to swear her off for good, but I am glad that she is moving on to new characters, seperate from the Baxters and the Flannigans.
Her books were much better without the commercials and without the Hollywood drama and soap opera. There are so many Christian authors who are much better than Karen Kingsbury, and I will become readers of those writers.
Perhaps I am the fool though because Karen has made millions off of people such as myself because she started off as a really great writer. She truly wrote "Life Changing Fiction," and I eagerly awaited her books.Read more ›
