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.

Don't miss Karen Kingsbury's One Tuesday Morning.

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.

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.

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

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.

Amazing!

Absolutely amazing! I have truly enjoyed this series so far! This book was full of emotion just like the first book in this series. I couldn't wait to listen to it just like I was with the first book and I'm so excited to start the last one. Karen Kingsbury is a gifted writer. I have listened to a lot of her books and there isn't one that I didn't enjoy! They are all Great! I highly recommend this series. You can't go wrong with a book she wrote!

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...

Horrible narration-don't waste your credit/money

Would you try another book from Karen Kingsbury and/or Kathy Garver?

Karen Kingsbury definitely; Kathy Garver-NEVER- horrible accents, sing songy voice, narrated italics with sound effects that sounded like a tin can. Wish I had not wasted a credit on this book because of the narration. Have read the series and loved them but could not finish listening to this book because of the narration.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond Tuesday Morning?

didn't finish it

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

Stina Nielsen, Sandra Burr, Johanna Parker, Kate Forbes, Adam Verner, Tom Stechschlute (sp)

NEOrtega83's Review

I definitely liked Tuesday Morning better than Beyond Tuesday Morning, but I really enjoyed hearing the follow up about Jamie and Clay. The only reason I gave the performance 3 stars was because it was obnoxious to me that when people were praying or talking in their heads, it was as if they were in a tunnel talking. Aside from that, I enjoyed it.

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.
