Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury comes an unforgettable story of love struggling against all odds to snatch hope from the jaws of despair. Annie Warren’s concern for her adult son, Josh, has intensified ever since a drunk driver careened into him. Disabled and in constant pain, Josh has put his life on hold while awaiting an insurance settlement that seems never to come. Yet as Annie sifts through the rubble of Josh’s life, she uncovers a treasure of surpassing value—the greatest gift he could give her this side of heaven.

    "Wonderful and touching"

    I love Karen Kingsburg story's......but wasn't ready for the tears....but I do love a happy ending. It sadden me to know there are really mothers out there like both women.....one who not satisfy with their son.....but finds pride in him after death....the other a user of her child and only thinking of herself......I wish the story Gould have went a little longer to tell us how Savannah adjusted and finally went to school.

    Story
    "Another solid Karen Kingsbury book."
    Would you listen to This Side of Heaven again? Why?

    No, but I am not a person who rereads books or watches movies over and over unless they really strike a chord in me. This book just missed the mark for me.


    What other book might you compare This Side of Heaven to and why?

    Most any of Karen Kingsbury's books.


    Any additional comments?

    I am drawn to books written by Christian writers because they have the ability to entertain with their books without having to resort to foul language or lurid sex. Karen Kingsbury's books can be relied upon to fill the bill for me. However, I found myself not missing the book when I was unable to listen to it. My interest was not held as much as other of her books. If you are looking for a good, clean book for light summer reading, this book will meet those expectations.

    "This Side of Heaven"

    Very touching story. Karen Kingsbury is a great author. Sometimes audio book would
    suddenly close and I'd have to reopen it. Other than that great book.
