Publisher's Summary

In this moving sequel to Even Now, Emily Anderson, now 20, is attending college on a soccer scholarship. Then she meets the man who changes everything for her: Army reservist Justin Baker. Their tender relationship, founded on a mutual faith in God and nurtured by their trust and love for each other, proves to be a shining inspiration to everyone they know, especially Emily's reunited birth parents, Lauren Gibbs and Shane Galanter.

Lauren and Shane still struggle to move past their opposing beliefs about war, politics, and faith. Shane believes it's possible; Lauren doesn't. So she says a painful good-bye to her long-ago love and returns to her job as a war correspondent in Afghanistan. Both Lauren and Shane are shattered, believing that this time their relationship may have ended forever.

Then tragedy sends shockwaves through all their lives. Can Lauren and Shane set aside their opposing views so that love, God's love, might win, no matter how great the odds?

    "Ever After"

    This book is a very moving story about love and war. I have read all of Karen Kingsbury 's books and enjoyed them all.

    "Not up to Kingsbury's quality"

    I love Karen Kingsbury's books and have read them all. Ever After was a real disappointment. To begin with, the reader is terrible. She tries to sound like a man for the male characters and the farther into the book you go, the more grating it becomes. And listening to the book made me feel like I was in a giant advertisement for the Iraq war. Karen - please go back to what you do best - writing about wonderful characters with great stories and leave the lobbying to the politicans.

    "A touching and very pertinent story for today"

    A very touching story. Though written 11 years ago, it is so pertinent for today. The reader did a great job with feminist characters, but awful with males. I felt like she made Shane out to be about 90 years old. I lived in the NW for 20 years--at the American Lake VA. Visited Ft Lewis several times. My younger son graduated from PLU, so was fun to be reminded about all those places while now living in MN. My eyes are bad so I can't read what is on box above this one. Sorry.

    "Had to know how it ended"

    I am one of those listeners that just has to know how it ended no matter what. The story drug out a bit in certain places but overall it was another easy listen and time filler. Not my favorite of Karen Kingsbury but it was good. Still had a hard time with this narrator but managed to get through.

    "#outdated war propagandist"

    I didn't read the first book so this may not be fair but I felt no concern over Lauren and Shane or whether they stayed togethwr. it seemed silly that the entire relationship would hinge on her reporting of the war. But disturbing that the author would portray time magazine as biased and in fact untruthful in reporting of the war. rarely does a news magazine report on a kitten rescued from a tree during war rather than the war itself. but I've seen moving stories on war dogs and their military owners and stories of heroism from this same press. shame on the author for such biased and unresearched writing. I was shocked after reading Angels Walking which I loved.

    "Enjoyable and thoughful"

    A great story about choices and forgiveness. Great choice for a teenager and for parents of a teen. I will remember this one when my daughter is about the age where she may be getting serious with a boy.
