I'm on the 3rd in the series, they are only 4 hours listening time each - most of the books I listen to are far more than that - and while I like her books, I feel like these could have easily been combined into 1 book and I would have bought 1 book instead of 5. Each book is a continuation of the story before it. Kind of feels like fleecing so not sure I'll get the last 2.

The third in the follow up series to The Baxter Family Series is great. Sorrow, tragedy, real love and coming home. A great series with perfect narration.
Just continue with Karen Kingsbury and you will not be disappointed. I am already worried about what I will do when I finish all 3 series on the Baxter family. You get to know these characters and want to stay in the know about their lives and where they will be later on.
