This book is an inspiration for the down hearted who have found themselves in an unexpected, sometimes undeserving circumstance. It also deals with breaking unhealthy chains and patterns in families, forgiveness and hope.
I had a hard time getting into the book however once the main people were developed it got better. It was a little predictable but it was enjoyable.
This book has a very profound message. The narrator is par-excellence. The story is a beautiful one and spoke to my heart in powerful ways. I hope to see many more Karen Kingsbury books available on Audible and also would enjoy listening to other books read by this narrator. The spiritual message of this book is exactly what I love to experience. Thank you!
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
I seldom listen to a book twice
She did a good job
This is a healing book for anyone who has made mistakes or wrong choices, and for Christians who mistakenly think that they are "perfect". I love books like this that confront real life issues and require Christians to take off the "mask".
This is a book written from a Christian point of view, however, this book would be good for anyone who may have struggled with mental breakdowns; being hurt by the church or the issue of self pride.
I love every word Karen Kingsbury writes. Since I began listening to her, I've listened to no one else.
YES! As someone who didn't find Christ until my 50's, my life has been full of choices many Christians can't imagine making. Most Christian novels have a "ridiculously happy ending" set of events that would not occur in the "real world" and this is no exception. For years this caused me to scoff at this genre and find no entertainment value in them. Kingsbury, however, has the ability to accurately capture the emotions that go with the the consequences of poor decisions. The way her characters address these consequences through Christ teach me what it means to live a Christian life. Although I can always predict the events and the ending, I can't get enough of the role models she develops in her novels.
Very much enjoyed this book. This book came so very close to telling some of my own life story, it was almost scary! Great book, as usual. Keep them coming, Karen!
It was a little predictable but still a great Christian story! It reminded me of a lot of the promises God made to us that are easily forgotten when we're hurting or dealing with tough situations.
The storyline, the characters, the author writes an amazing story. This is my first book by her but wont be my last.
None that I can think of.
When mother and daughter are reunited.
Yes and I did listen to 13 hours at one time. Finished it the next morning.
This book is an emotional roller coaster. One you will never forget.
