Dear Friends,Pressures of the celebrity lifestyle weigh heavily on Dayne and Katy Matthews as they take on separate movie projects. Tabloid rumors talk of trouble and unfaithfulness between the two, but finally something drastic catches Daynes attention and makes him realize the destruction theyÂre playing with. But will it be too late? The Flanigan family recognizes the deep loss of the Christian Kids Theater program, and they lead a final effort to keep the theater from being torn down. Meanwhile, John Baxter takes the next step in his growing relationship with Elaine, giving him a season to contemplate selling the Baxter house and, along with it, losing a lifetime of memories made there. As the rest of the family considers the future and what may lie ahead, they must pull together like never before. Only their undying love for each other can help the Baxters get past the trials of today for a life they know is possible . . . someday.
A special thanks to each of you who have taken precious time from your busy days to read the Redemption, Firstborn, and now the Sunrise series. The stories God gives me come from more than my imagination. Over the years, I have grown to love these characters and have tried, even in tragedy or triumph, to take what is good and right and true in life and place it in their stories. My prayer--my hope--is that readers would come along and find what is good and right and true in these stories and take it back to their lives. So thank you so much for bringing these characters to life in my heart and in yours, for following along in this journey, and making it something I think we will all remember forever.

God's sovereign faithfulness is the recurring theme of this book. The characters (whom I've come to know so well though the Redemption Series and the Firstborn Series) struggle with real issues. In the opening pages, Ashley Baxter and her husband Landon are reeling after the death of their newborn. Through the pain of losing a child, they helplessly cling to the God they trust, and realize that in all things, He will be exalted. (Psalm 46:10).
As the Baxters face life's difficulties as well as joys, some mistakes are made, but they always manage to inevitably lean on and trust the Lord, and on one another. They are made stronger through trials, and learn to trust in God's sovereign love.
Enough information is gleaned about the characters in this book to make it a stand alone book, but for those who have been on this journey with the Baxters in the past twelve books, it is even more satisfying. I would recommend this book and series to anyone.
