Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury comes a brand-new love story in the Baxter Family collection about two people who lost their parents in the same national tragedy - two people desperate to find each other and the connection they shared for a single day...a day that changed everything.

Brady Bradshaw was a child when the Oklahoma City bombing killed his mother. Every year, Brady visits the memorial site on the anniversary to remember her. A decade ago on that day, he met Jenna Phillips, who was also a child when her parents were killed in the attack. Brady and Jenna shared a deep heart connection and a single beautiful day together at the memorial. But after that, Brady never saw Jenna again. Every year when he returns, he leaves a note for her in hopes that he might find her again.

This year, Ashley Baxter Blake and her sister Kari Ryan and their families take a spring break trip that includes a visit to the site to see the memorial's famous Survivor Tree. While there, Ashley spots a young man, alone and troubled. That man is Brady Bradshaw. A chance moment leads Ashley to help Brady find Jenna, the girl he can't forget.

Ashley's family is skeptical, but she pushes them to support her efforts to find the girl and bring them together. But will it work? Will her husband, Landon, understand her intentions? And is a shared heartache enough reason to fall in love?

Deeply emotional and beautifully romantic, To the Moon and Back is an unlikely love story about healing, redemption, hope and the belief that sometimes a new tomorrow can grow from the ashes of a shattered yesterday.

Not my favorite

It was obvious how to solve the main problem. I own all of KK’a books but this one was so simplified with little to keep you listening. Narration was excellent.

NOT MY FAVORITE

While I loved the setting around the Oklahoma City tragedy, I felt the story was weak and just too predictable.

Great Storyline

I highly recommend this book to everyone! It's a great story about trials and tribulations that we go through in life, and how we may not understand why bad things happen to good people. It also shows how our faith and trust can be tested.

Amazing story line

Read almost all of Karen books and love how I feel the Lords touch. She has a canny way o sucking you in from the start wanting to know what is next and I’m always sad when the book is over . But delighted to hear more are on the way.

I love everything that Karen Kingsbury has written

What caught me about this one though was the title. I have always said this phrase 'Love You to the Moon and Back'- to my sons since they were born. They are now 23 & 25yrs old. I remember the Oklahoma bombing- I was pregnant with my youngest son. it was such a senseless tragedy. Thank you for writing this and teaching me some things about it. I love the Baxter family and eagerly await each story as it is available. Thank you Karen Kingsbury-for continuing to 'seek and hear' God and bring us these inspired stories. They are truly a blessing!

Not recommended

I really found this book slow and cringe worthy in its storyline. I preserved in finishing it but was a waste of 7 hrs listening time. Parts of it were well written but most of it was cringe worthy and drawn out.

Normally Karen’s writing is good but it seemed like a Mills and Boon book with no great storyline.
Sorry!!
