5 Stars Out Of 5
A family story that pulled me right in
September 13, 2015
Forever is the last book of Karen Kingsburys five-book Firstborn series, which also includes Fame, Forgiven, Found and Family. This series is part of the larger series about the Baxter family, and features the addition of a child that the Baxter parents gave up for adoption before they were married.
I had the benefit of reading Karens Baxter family books after they had been written so I didnt experience any wait for the next book to be published. There are many references to story lines in previous books that at times seemed repetitive, but I think I was just so eager to keep reading that I tended to skim over any repetition.
The Baxter family story lines were heartwarming and realistic. There were plenty of the same conflicts that all of us face at one time or another, and tragedies too. But blessings abound. I found the books to be an encouragement. I didnt want to put them down and often read in just a few sittings. I would definitely recommend them: Redemption, Remember, Return, Rejoice, Reunion; Fame, Forgiven, Found, Family, Forever; Sunrise, Summer, Someday, Sunset; Take One, Take Two, Take Three, Take Four; Leaving, Learning, Longing, Loving; and Coming Home.
