Kingsbury, a CBA bestselling author, delivers her signature mix of melodrama, formula and genuine emotional punch in this novel about two young rodeo stars and their experiences with Down syndrome and cystic fibrosis. The young leads inhabit Christian romance fiction clichs: Cody Gunner is the ruggedly handsome outdoorsman with a painful past (his backstory, as it happens, is identical to that of the male lead in Susan May Warren's Happily Ever After) and Ali Daniels is the daintily beautiful yet doggedly determined young cowgirl who wins his heart. Both characters are driven to succeed by a need to overcome hidden pain. Cody has suffered from besetting anger at both of his parents since the day his father left the family because he was unable to handle Cody's brother's Down syndrome. Ali, on the other hand, secretly has cystic fibrosis, and she rides in horse races despite the dust, hay and allergens associated with her sport, which will shorten her already brief life expectancy. When these two predictably fall in love, they provide each other with some measure of healing before the novel reaches its telegraphed conclusion. Despite the plot's limitations, Kingsbury fans will undoubtedly be pleased by more of the inspirational fiction for which this author has become beloved.

JesuSavesCanadaAge: Under 18Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Leaves you Speechless. (3 and a half stars)December 29, 2011JesuSavesCanadaAge: Under 18Gender: femaleSigh. I just finished my first read from Karen Kingsbury.
I'm not really sure how to put this together, so I'll just let the words flow.
To those who like sweet, happy romance stories and to those who are very emotional readers.. well, this might not be the right pick for you.
This was a sad, sad, SAD story. But what can we say: It's a reality. There are those who go through the same situations-- unfortunately, and I do agree with the other reviewers who were mentioning that GOD could have held a much more important place in this story, and if I may add, that might have even made the story hundreds of times better.
Well, one thing's for sure with this one :
It's Goodbye Happily Ever After and Hello Kleenex Box.
