A deadly accident....

The Christian Kids Theater group is devastated by a tragedy greater than any of them could have imagined. Now their director, Katy Hart, must find a way to walk the kids through their grief and give them a reason to believe again. But will hatred and revenge have the final word?

An aching emptiness....

Dayne Matthews is at the top of the Hollywood list, working on what could be his best movie yet. Still, he is empty and unfocused, aching for real love and the family he'll never know. Then a friend tells him about a teaching center and a way to become like God. Is this the answer Dayne's been searching for?

A shocking discovery....

John Baxter reconnects with an old friend and shares a buried secret, one that he and his wife shared all their married lives. Now - in his wife's honor - he decides to continue a very special search. But in the process he makes a critical mistake. What will happen when one of his daughters stumbles onto a letter she was never supposed to see? In this season for the Baxters, grace and redemption will play a greater role than ever before.

Disappointing

You need to read the unabridged version. This version leaves out important information.

Not the whole book... very disappointing!

This is not the entire book. There are sentences, paragraphs and complete sections missing. I listened to the book and followed along with a hard copy and was surprised to see how much is left out. I’m confused why the label does not disclose this fact.

a lot of tears and cheers!

Karen Kingsbury has such a gift to make stories relatable to Everyday Life. I feel like I was friends with the cast of characters like I was watching the story unfold firsthand. This is a great audiobook series to stream while you're driving.

Heartwarming

These are the stories that reminds us of what our faith is about. The characters with all our similar flaws and problems but turning to their religion to resolve their issues peaceably.
