In Forever, the fifth and final book in Karen Kingsburys Firstborn series, Katy and the Baxter family face some of the biggest trials of their livestrials that will test their faith, forcing them to band together, and either conquer their weaknesses or be conquered by them.
Those familiar with Kingburys work are undoubtedly acquainted with the Baxters, who have been the central characters of ten of her books spanning two series. However, even those who pick up this book with no prior knowledge of plots or characters will find enough background material sprinkled into the story to know whats going on.
Yet despite Kingburys ability to juggle multiple storylines at the same time, her book frequently reads like a clichéd soap opera. Just about every conflict that can happen does, and, of course, all are not only resolved by the end, but culminate into a happily ever after finale that would work in a perfect world, but not a real one. Whereas some reviewing and summarizing are necessary, especially in a five-book series, theres too much here, slowing the story and proving that it could have and should have been told in far fewer books. All in all, theres too much melodramatic filler and not enough depth.
Kingsbury explores issues, such as salvation, acceptance, teen relationships, marital conflicts, and forgiveness, and while the lessons taught ring true and may impact some, theyre often predictable, and any punches that couldve been packed are lost when the story drags on far too long. Yes, the writing is good, but its clear that the Baxter family and their friends have overstayed their welcome. Elizabeth Goldsmith, Christian Book Previews.com
