    Wow!

    I have a new favorite author.

    I usually go for the historical novels so reading this Trilogy is my first experience with the writings of Karen Kingsbury and I am impressed. Her writing style is extremely polished and her characters and story lines are gripping portrayals of the life struggles that we all face at one time or another. They are packed full of spiritual content without being preachy or boring. No fluff here! I found this compelling volume to have life changing messages for the Christian and non Christian alike. The characters are like real life friends to me and this is one book I will keep in my library and read over again. Karen Kingsbury is definitely one of the best authors I have read in a long time.

    Titles included in the trilogy are:

    Waiting for Morning

    The emotional story of a grieving widow and her struggle with hate and revenge after a drunk driver kills her husband and daughter in a car crash. The fact that she is a Christian does not make her struggles any easier—in fact she finds herself mad at God and questioning why he allowed this tragedy in her life. I found this story to be riveting and emotional. The characters were very well rounded and believable. This is sure to touch every heart and make us think about how actions have consequences. I found it very interesting that she used the book of Lamentations as a foundation for this novel.

    A Moment of Weakness

    Poor judgment and bad decisions are explored in this book about a Christian couple who put themselves in a compromising position and then must spend years paying the price for A Moment of Weakness. This book has a powerful message that will captivate and educate at the same time.

    Halfway to Forever

    This book revisits the characters from Waiting for Morning and A Moment of Weakness combining their lives into one very gripping and moving story. Halfway to Forever explores how we all must eventually fact the hard stuff in life, but God is always there with us. I cried a bit, but the message was worth it and very powerful.

    I was ready for some fiction reading but I didn't realize there were three books in one volume when I signed up for this book! When I received it, I thought I would never read it before Christmas. I sat down and started to read. I was caught into the story immediately. Karen Kingsbury is one of the best writers I have read. She really knows how to develop her characters and is not afraid to draw you into their conflicts, their sorrows, their struggles. I felt as if I was reading about friends of my own because the characters were so well portrayed. I finished the first book in one night because I could not put it down. Went on to the second book thinking it could not be as good as the first (that is just how it always is). I was wrong! It was just as good and I finished it in two nights! The last one was even better!

    This book is hard to put down. I loved the characters and how they show up in the later volumes as well. Well written. I laughed and cried...some of those gut wrenching sobs that you are embarrassed to have while reading a book. Wonderful writing!!!

    I have now read this series for the second time and I can tell you it was even better the second time through! Be ready to have that box of tissue ready at your disposal because you are going to need them. Wow, Karen Kingsbury has that gift to bring our emotions to the forefront. She can make us laugh, cry and then turn around and do it all over again.

    In this Forever Faithful Trilogy we have, Waiting for Morning, A Moment of Weakness, and Halfway and Forever. In book one we witness how tragedy can bring us to the breaking point in the blink of an eye. But Kingsbury shows us we are never alone and God always and forever has a plan. In book 2, we see what can happen when we allow our feeling to overtake us and in one choice life changes forever. In the last book we see how God doesn't just bring us half way through an experience and leave us there to fend for ourselves. He carries us all the way through. Even when we cannot see what's up ahead, He can and through it all, He is preparing us for each experience.

    We meet the Ryan family and we have a front seat into their living room window. The story continues with Jade and Connor. In book three the life of these very relatable characters brings us to love them even more. You feel as though you have walked the valleys with them and laughed through the great joys that has touched their lives.

    I absolutely loved this book and you will too!

    The entire best-selling Forever Faithful trilogy, by Karen Kingsbury now available in one volume:

    Kingsbury is a great storyteller. Her characters are well written and come alive off the page with real life struggles. This trilogy is full of stories of redemption, restored relationships, and forgiveness. The joys and sorrows the characters experienced are so real the reader will feel they know them personally.

    Waiting for Morning

    a drunk driver...a deadly accident...a dream destroyed. When Hannah Ryan loses her husband and oldest daughter to a drunk driver, she is consumed with hate and revenge. Ultimately, it is a kind prosecutor, a wise widow, and her husband's dying words that bring her the peace that will set her free and let her live again.

    A Moment of Weakness

    When childhood friends Jade and Tanner reunite as adults, they share their hearts, souls, and dreams of forever--until a fateful decision tears them apart. Now, nearly a decade later, Jade's unfaithful husband wants to destroy her in a custody battle that is about to send shock waves across the United States. Only one man can help Jade in her darkest hour. And only one old woman knows the truth that can set them all free.

    Halfway to Forever

    Matt and Hannah...Jade and Tanner--after already surviving much, these couples must now face the greatest struggles of their lives: parental losses and life-threatening illness threaten to derail their faith and sideline their futures. Can Hannah survive the loss of an adopted daughter? Will Tanner come through decades of loneliness only to face losing Jade one final time?

    Karen Kingsbury is a USA Today and New York Times best-selling author, with nearly twenty million books in print. Dubbed the "Queen of Christian Fiction" by Time magazine, Karen has written more than forty Life-Changing Drama, which encompasses the Redemption, Firstborn, and Sunrise series, as well as stand-alone novels such as Like Dandelion Dust, When Joy Came to Stay, and This Side of Heaven.

    If you have never read any of her books this is a good series to start with. Fans of Kingsbury will not be disappointed. I would recommend this book.

    When I first saw this book, I thought, "What was I thinking. I'm never going to have time to read all that" (1136 pages).. but once I got started I couldn't put it down.

    This trilogy opens with Waiting for Morning, the story of Hannah Ryan, a mom of two beautiful girls, married to her childhood sweetheart, whom life has treated pretty well. Until a tragic accident, involving a drunk driver, changes everything. Ms. Kingsbury writes with such emotion, I felt as if I were reading about a good friend. I identified with Hannah's grief and hatred toward the driver, and her struggles with her surviving daughter, Jenny. {Have some tissues handy!} A brief verse at the beginning of each chapter (most from Lamentations), confirms what Hannah discovers, that bad things do happen to good people, and that just like others, people of faith often struggle to find meaning during dark times.

    Book two, A Moment of Weakness, introduces us to new characters, Jade and Tanner, best friends since childhood, who discover that decisions they once made lightly can have a huge impact on their futures.

    Halfway to Forever, the third book, brings together the main characters from the previous two books. I don't want to spoil it for you, so I'll just say that the story doesn't end the way you think it will. Twists and turns will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, even when you have to work early the next day!

    This is my first experience with a Karen Kingsbury book. I loved the honesty in her writing. She doesn't portray Christians as perfect people, but as people who serve a perfect God.

    I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
