Karen Kingsbury's most beloved characters are back!
From New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury comes A Baxter Family Christmas, a life-changing story of love and hope featuring the Baxter family.
Whether you're meeting the Baxter family for the first time or finding them all over again, A Baxter Family Christmas will leave fingerprints on your heart forever.
Two years have passed since the terrible car accident that took the life of John Baxter's daughter, Erin; her husband; and three of their four daughters. Prompted by grief, and missing his daughter, John has invited a stranger for Christmas Eve dinner - Kendra Bryant, the transplant recipient who now has Erin's heart.
In light of their father's idea, Ashley and her brother, Luke, don't think it's right. They want to protect their 10-year-old niece, Amy - the only surviving member of the accident. But John is determined and believes meeting this woman is something his deceased daughter would want.
At the same time, Maddie West, the 18-year-old daughter of Brooke Baxter West, is praying for meaning this Christmas. Could she find it in a newfound friendship with a boy she never expected to see again? Maddie believes in miracles, especially at Christmastime, but this is a stretch even she can't imagine.
Meanwhile, Kendra Bryant has been struggling these past few years to find purpose in the tragedy that gave her a second chance. She believes the invitation to see the Baxters and witness their unwavering faith in God can instill peace and happiness back into her life.
Heartwarming and touching, filled with love and redemption, A Baxter Family Christmas brings together two families in the aftermath of loss and in the midst of an unfolding love story, all with the help of one very special child.

I was looking for a fun Christmas book, but was quite disappointed. I wanted a light listen while at work. I found myself crying at my desk. I would not recommend this book for a work listen
I was so sad when I heard that Coming Home was supposed to be the last book following the Baxter Family... But I was so excited when I learned that a new book was coming out!
This book had me laughing, smiling, and crying with all the old characters we love and the new ones who I hope we will see again!
It is hard for me to find time to read books anymore, so I find that audiobooks are helpful! The narration for this book was beautiful!
I cannot wait for more adventures with the Baxter's!
I feel like I know these people. I have loved following both families. I started somewhere in the middle a few years back and I found myself going back to listen to all the ones I could find that came before and after. I just wanted to know more about them. This book did not disappoint. Loved it.
The true meaning and spirit of Christmas could not have been more spot on than through the eyes of the Baxter family. Cannot wait to see what the next book entails. I feel as though I am a part of the Baxter family when reading these books. I can't wait to see what happens next in their lives and am very much looking forward to the television portrail of this wonderful family! I hope the actors and actresses are matched up properly with each character in the family!!
I love the characters.
That in the end they all supported the dad's decision to meet the stranger.
I liked them all.
Ashley, she overcame the most.
I truly love how it's so easy to get to know and love these families. The Baxter Family Christmas is the 5th book I've thoroughly enjoyed and am looking forward to hearing the next three I have in que. Karen Kingsley is my favorite author, I love her style of writing.
