Karen Kingsbury is the BEST writer with the best stories that keep my faith flexing and me inspired! There is always a plot line that is so uncontrived and not your normal formula where you already know the ending! It also makes you think. You know that question people ask? Why do bad things happen to good people? Well, Karen Kingsbury always has a message about how God uses even bad things in His plans. I am a firm believer that we are in a fallen world and that God allows free choice and so we have pain and suffering but He hurts with us and can always make something good come from the worst situations and sometimes the lessons are our blessings. I hate spoilers so I won't even share the story but I must say I was sad when it was over. But in Karen Kingsbury style I am hoping for a sequel to this Baxter Family book. My only request would be more MP3 availability so I can listen to more when I am on my commutes!
