    "Great Story Based on Christian Principles"

    I'm glad that this is the first book in the series. I want to be with and enjoy this family as they grow and change. I a big fan of Karen Kingsbury, having listened to When Joy Came to Stay, Gideon's Gift and Maggie's Miracle a couple of years ago. This book, Redemption deals with a infidelity in a young couple's marriage in an honest and sensitive way . . . and in a godly way. I appreciated the openness and the courage demonstrated in this fictional story . . . because it is many a Christian couple's REAL story. Infidelity need not destroy a marriage. Kari Jacobs, the young wife who was wise and strong, sought God in her pain. I look forward to the next book in the series, and I am thankful for wholesome, Christian literature that bring real life issues to the forefront.

    "Great book to listen to!!!"
    Would you listen to Redemption again? Why?

    I enjoyed REDEMPTION soooo much. It was very easy to listen to and follow. I drive many miles a day for work and could follow this and relax on long drives. The story warms your heart and keeps you coming back for more. I downloaded the second book! Must Read!

    Story
    "Good story despite outlandish plot direction"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I really enjoyed this book despite the fact that I thought that the plot was a little outlandish. I really enjoy the Christian characters and perspective. What really attracted me to the series, though, is the story. The story woven throughout the series is enough to get me past any deficiencies in individual books. The female characters are weak. That really bothers me. However, I got a kick out of how God took care of the loser cheating husband. The narration was great except that the narrator's voice does not do men's voices well. That bothered me a little. The bottom line is that I enjoy the stories so much that the little flaws just don't matter.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Baxter parents were my favorite characters. The younger female characters seem weak. The cheating husband was a total loser.


    What three words best describe Sandra Burr’s voice?

    Sandra Burr has a great voice. She is a wonderful narrator. Her portrayal of male voices bothers me a little. It would be better to have an actual male voice do those parts.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    If the female characters had more brains and backbone and the writing was more rich and smooth, these would be the best books ever!


    Any additional comments?

    This was certainly a very short book for the cost.

    "Big fan already!"

    Loved this book and can't wait to hear the stories of all the other siblings in the other 'R" series by Karen Kingsbury. There are great Christian traits seen in characters, but it isn't preachy. It's enough to make you look at yourself and think of how you could improve. I am downloading the next one today. One complaint would be that the story seemed to wrap up a bit quickly, whereas the rest of the book was more detailed, but still loved it.
