Disappointing

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

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.

Wish it were Unabridged

Any additional comments?

Love this whole series, but disappointed this was Abridged. A couple of my favorite parts were left out.

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.

Another Excellent Book of Love and Faith by Karen

This book totally exceeded my expectations, the series is a wonderful story of love, hope, and faith. The narrator does an excellent job, I highly recommend this series as well as the previous series on the Baxter family all followed by Coming Home by Karen Kingsbury.

Stuggles we can relate to

This book was very straight forward and reminded me that we all struggle and have choices that can lead us astray.... God is always there.... we are then ones who don't always see him, not the other way around. Good book!
