Publisher's Summary

Winner of Christian Retailing’s 2005 Retailer’s Choice Award for Best Series

A deep regret....

Though Ashley vowed to start a new life when she came back from Paris, the mistakes she made there continue to haunt her. She has locked up her heart, convinced that no one - including God - could forgive her. But four unlikely people - Alzheimer’s patients - find the cracks in Ashley’s heart and slowly help her heal.

An unthinkable tragedy....

Then comes the nightmare of September 11, which forever changes the lives of the Baxter family, causing them to remember what is important and leading them to make decisions that are both heartbreaking and hope-filled.

A steadfast love....

Landon Blake has loved Ashley since he was a teenager, but the heartache of her past has convinced her she’ll never be able to love again. Landon tries to dull the pain of her rejection by immersing himself in the rescue efforts at Ground Zero. Will a new opportunity in New York keep him apart from Ashley forever?

A story about tragedy, healing, and the importance of remembering.

Such a great series and some great moments in the story. I always hate it when I have to stop listening.

The Emotions!

The story takes place in 2001 and 2002. It was emotionally hard going through 9-11 again even after all this time.

Real and uplifting!

So far I have loved every Kingsbury book I have listened to! She writes about real life. It amazes me when I read a book and they'll go all through their experiences and no reference to saying a prayer or anyting. It makes me wonder- are there really that many people who don't have God in their lives at all? I like reading about people who have God active in their life. This is not a mushy religiousy book, it's just realistic.

Learned something new

I love a series that let's me get to know the characters more deeply. I especially enjoyed the information presented about new research in Alzheimers. The best fiction teaches me not only about human weakness and God's unfailing grace but the creativity within us.

The Baxter family Books Exellent

I love all the Baxter Family Books I have heard on audible so far. Karen Kingsbury has portrayed a heartwarming message of family trails and God's Love. The narrator is great. An overall wonderful book. My favorite part is Ashley working with the Alziemers patients
