Publisher's Summary

It's been three years since the terrorist attacks on New York City, but FDNY widow Jamie Bryan keeps waking up to the same aching pain of that one Tuesday morning, when she lost her husband, Jake.

Determined to find meaning in her grief, Jamie pours her life into volunteer work at St. Paul's, the small memorial chapel across from where the Twin Towers once stood. In the stream of broken, grieving people who make their way through the church doors, Jamie connects with two men, a firefighter forever changed by the attacks, and a Los Angeles police officer.

Unsure and feeling somehow guilty, Jamie opens herself to the possibility of loving again. But a shocking revelation sends her reeling. How can this be the plan for her life?

Now only the persistence of a tenacious caring man, questions from Jamie's curious daughter, and words from Jake's treasured journal can move Jamie Byran beyond one Tuesday morning toward life.

EXCELLENT READ

It's obvious from the other reviews that people are disappointed with Karen's books because of the "religious" tone so as long as you understand that's what you are getting, this book is EXCELLENT. I don't usually read fiction but couldn't put this one (and One Tuesday Morning) down until I was finshed. I am a Christian woman and love that there is a fiction book out there with so much Christian emphasis. This book actually helped me with my faith issues and helped me with my view of God. Actually changed it a little. So I highly recommend this book as long as you understand exactly what you are getting.

Faith Overturning Tragedy

An excellent sequel to "One Tuesday Morning", Karen Kingsbury shows how one's personal faith in Christ can overcome even the most dire events that life can throw your way. I wouldn't have expected anything less from the author. Rather than living in the past and constantly dwelling on the personal loss from the fall of the Twin Towers, Jamie relies on her faith to go forward with her life. While her personal loss will always be a part of her, her faith carries her into the future. A truly inspiring novel about how faith and love can overcome tragedy and loss.

Another great listen from Karen Kingsbury

A must-listen sequel to "One Tuesday Morning". The trials and tribulations of a woman trying live a Christian life who found her faith in God after her husband's death in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Many lessons can be learned from listening to this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to more Christian fiction.

Voices are not pleasant

I love the book, but the narrator kills the vibe. Her deep male voices are annoying and pull you from the story. Would be better to use a male and female narrator as in the previous book...

For once the sequel is better than the original

Would you listen to Beyond Tuesday Morning again? Why?

Yes I would listen to this book again because I enjoyed it so much it was a really very special love story

Have you listened to any of Kathy Garver’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't want it to end ! I kept rewinding it listening to bits over and over again so that it would last longer. I was really sad to see it end.

Any additional comments?

I've listened to other titles by Karen Kingsbury this is by so far my favorite I actually didn't like some of the others so this one was something special

Good book...poor narration

I found the story to be good, however, I almost didn't want to continue listening to it because the narration was so annoying. Some of the narrators had weird mouth noises and it sounded like you could hear their stomachs growling or something. I found that to be extremely distracting. But again, it was a good story.

Beyond Christian Propaganda

Too bad this book was not identified as an evangelizing tract. I could have skipped it. The story (which could have been quite good) is entirely masked by the clear agenda of pushing Christianity. The language used by the author is simplistic and the Bible quotes are jarring and inappropriate. Christy, by Catherine Marshall gives a beautiful example of how true Christian faith can be illustrated in a literate and elegant way. Perhaps if you need something to prop up your faith, this book may speak to you. For those of us who prefer literature, this book misses the mark by a mile.

beyond tollerable

This is definately a "God has a plan for your life so choose life" message story. If you don't catch that message the first 40 or 50 times they say it, don't worry, they say it a few hundred times more before the end of the book. I guess they figured the listener couldn't remember it for more than a few sentences so they just kept beating the listener over the head with the same message over, and over, and over etc.
There are also lots of Bible referances and lots of messages to not think for yourself but instead, ask God to give you the answer to every little thing and to pray for an answer from God if you get close to making a decision on your own without asking God to give you the answer.
The preview write up for this book should make it clear that this is a religious book and not just a novel. It seems that the write up deliberately leaves that part out.

Sweet read

Good story, worst narrator

After so many audible listens, this was the first I had to cringe my way through. The narrator’s male voices made many of them sound like they had speech impediments or were mentally challenged. I don’t mean that disrespectfully to people who do have those challenges- but just when I was trying to understand what the issue was with the character, I realized it was the narrator, not the characteristics of the character. If I liked the book a little less, I would have returned it. So so hard to get through. Ms. Kingsbury, please have this book re-recorded. I think folks who want to remember 9/11 would listen to this series- but have to stop short due to this reading.

Brilliant

I have struggled with some of Karen Kingsburys as they take so long to get into the plot. however this launches straight in, and you feel as though you are part of the family. The twists and turns leave you crying or laughing. recommend so badly!

odd narration style. very predictable.

nice sentiments and a good reflection of listening to God in life. struggled with the narration... pauses in the wrong place which made expressions unnatural. far too drawn out to fill a book with this storyline, frustrated by the depth of soul searching analysed which made it agonisingly slow in pace.

Frustrating!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I do recommend the novel not this audiobook. I am sorely tempted to give it back.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Kathy Garver?

Anyone would have been better. I am used to long listens but this narrator tires me out in less than an hour! It’s a stilted reading just too relentless for the gentle tone of Karen’s novels.

Average

I listened to this a few years ago and this is my second time. I was more taken with it the first time, however maybe as the years have passed I have become more discerning, as I found it a little predictable in places and a bit trite. I am a committed Christian and so to have a story that is based around faith is welcome . The first book in the series is narrated by a full cast, the narrator on this book could at times become a little wearisome. And what was the strange echo sounding voice when the character prayed internally? This was distracting.
The story itself continues Jamie's journey through widowhood and her search for some sort of closure and peace. Some of the plot lines were a bit tedious and laboured, this too detracted from the overall enjoyment.
Audiobooks require extremely carefully chosen narrators as they can make or break the book - in this instance the performance did not shine out for me.
All things considered I cannot rate it more than three stars.
