Product Description

Sometimes hope lies somewhere in the shades of blue!

Brad Cutler, twenty-eight, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all ? a great career, a beautiful and loving fiancee, and a fairy tale life ahead of him?when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him.

Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: He must find his old love and make amends. Haunted by the past and confused about the future, he turns to God seeking forgiveness and redemption.

Publisher's Description

In between a checkered past and a fairytale future, a decision awaits. Brad Cutler, twenty-eight, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all—a great career, a beautiful and loving fiancée, and a fairy tale life ahead of him … when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him. Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: He must go back to the shores of Holden Beach in search of his first love, and a forgiveness neither of them has ever known. Three people must work through the repercussions of a decision made long ago before any of them can look toward a new future.

Publisher's Weekly

The author of more than 40 bestselling fiction titles whose combined sales hover near 15 million, Kingsbury takes her loyal faith-based fans on an exploration of the emotional and spiritual effects of abortion. Interestingly, the author frames the story through a young adult male character, Brad Cutler, an up-and-coming ad agency executive; he revisits a former relationship in which he encouraged his pregnant girlfriend to have an abortion. Years later, Brad continues to feel guilty, and as he readies to marry his fiancée, a new ad campaign for baby clothes has immobilized him. Emma, the former girlfriend, also cannot move past what happened. As the pressure mounts, Brad travels home and reunites with Emma to find closure, but what he discovers in the encounter is far more different than he hoped or expected. Kingsbury tackles a touchy, difficult topic, yet in her characteristic style, her gentle approach wins the day. It will also overcome any reader resistance, no matter what position one takes on this volatile issue. (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    This is the most moving work of fiction I have read dealing with the life issue. I feel every young person, woman especially, should read this book to have an understanding of the ramifications of their actions. I would recommend all Christian high schools have this on their summer reading lists. Told with gentleness but with truth. I have found this to be the work of Karen Kingsbury that has most powerfully impacted me personally.

    This was the first time I read any of

    Karen Kingsbury's books and I felt she did an excellent job keeping the reader in suspense and also telling how devastating abortion as be but a person can also receive healing from the Lord.

    The book was very difficult to put down.

    Wow. Great book. Awesome story of forgiveness and healing. This is the second book I've ever read of Karen Kingsbury, but I am definitely hooked on her writing. Shades of Blue is the kind of book that you will remember long after you read it.

    I expected so much more from this well known author. While the storyline was interesting, I got so distracted by the poor syntax (sentence structure). As an English writing professor, it was impossible for me to get past the clipped, fractured fragments. Perhaps a more articulate editor would have made the choppiness less invasive.
