From number-one New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury comes the second novel in a brand-new series about divine intervention and second chances - the dramatic story of a woman desperate to find deeper meaning in her life.
Mary Catherine grew up in a comfortable life despite an array of health issues, including a congenital heart condition (which she quietly obsesses over). She loves her parents, who are quite wealthy, but the lifestyle never appealed to her. Instead she pursues meaning through an abundance of charity work, always giving away a part of herself in service of others.
After her project with a local youth center comes to an end, Mary Catherine decides to travel to Uganda on a mission to meet the two children she sponsors - and to find out if her donations are actually helping.
Accompanied by Tyler, Sami, and Marcus Dillinger, Mary Catherine arrives in Africa only to find a makeshift orphanage with 17 children and no one to care for them.
They return home with heavy hearts, and Mary Catherine knows there is more work to be done. Intent on returning to Africa, Mary Catherine quits her job and leaves a budding romance behind to fulfill her desire to help others.
Inspirational and moving, Chasing Sunsets is the story of one woman's deep longings of the soul and the sacrifices she's willing to make in search of healing.

This book did not read as a complete story. It is a series, but too many loose ends. Storyline for certain characters was too developed to be left dangling for next book. This made the book seem hollow and unfulfilling.
Truly enjoyed the book. I'm a guy reader so every time I told someone I was reading this book they would say "sounds like a chic book". lol! It's easy to get attached to plot and most of all reminded me even after 13 yrs of marriage I still need to chase and love my wife with all my being. And... There is so much power in the name of Jesus!
Absolutely fantastic again thanks Karen Kingsbury. I really enjoyed listening, and there are some real struggles we face. Narrator was fantastic too, please carry on with the lovely stories
Great Christian fiction read! It is book two in the Angels walking series. It does leave you hanging at the end and looking forward to when the next book comes out in the fall! Book one was good too.
I read and listened to Angels Walking and could hardly wait for what was next. I participated in the online Bookclub and have been transformed by these books. I cannot wait for the fall release of Book 3!!! I could not stop listening!!!
Can't wait for the next one. Characters are so believable. Well done Karen Kingsbury you star!!!
"exciting, Gripping and well written"
in some places very emotional, others very funny. Definitely reading the next in the series
