Publisher's Summary

From number one New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury comes a heart-wrenching and redemptive new story in the Baxter Family series about a couple desperately waiting to bring their adopted child home and a young mother about to make the biggest decision of her life.

Cole Blake, son of Landon and Ashley Baxter Blake, is months away from going off to college and taking the first steps toward his dream - a career in medicine. But as he starts his final semester of high school, he meets Elise, a mysterious new girl who captures his attention - and heart - from day one.

Elise has her heart set on mending her wild ways and rediscovering the good girl she used to be. But not long after the semester starts, she discovers she’s pregnant. Eighteen and alone, she shares her secret with Cole. Undaunted by the news, and in love for the first time in his life, Cole is determined to support Elise - even if it means skipping college, marrying her, and raising another man’s baby.

When Elise decides to place her baby up for adoption, she is matched with Aaron and Lucy Williams, who moved to Bloomington, Indiana, to escape seven painful years of infertility.

But as Elise’s due date draws near, she becomes focused on one truth: She has two weeks to change her mind about the adoption. With Cole keeping vigil and Lucy and Aaron waiting to welcome their new baby, Elise makes an unexpected decision - one that changes everyone’s plans.

Tender and deeply moving, Two Weeks is a story about love, faith, and what it really means to be a family.

Awesome Storyline!

Karen Kingsbury is such a great writer. I was crying, feeling the pain and so caught up like it was my family’s lives. When Cole was leaving for college it was just like I was there and I had watched him grow up.
Karen, keep writing and keep bringing us stories of love, tragedy, triumph and laughter!!!

Great book!

Although this is the 5th in a series, I read it as a stand alone with no problem. I'm sure I would have experienced more depth with the characters had I read the others first, but they were well developed here and enjoyed the read. I love the way Karen Kingsbury weaves the lives of several people into a book so seamlessly. They face hardships, celebrations and life's events with honor and dignity, albeit moments of errors in judgment and mistakes, but with grace always.

I truly appreciate this clean read and the way characters throughout face short and long term situations of heartbreak, resolve and healing. Kirby Heyborne and January LaVoy did an excellent job narrating and it truly added to the book. Thank you.

I recommend this book to any one.

Wonderful

Couldn’t wait to get into the car again to keep listening. As I only get to listen on my 75km drive to work I wish I worked more. It was a true Karen Kingsbury book. Can’t wait for the next one
