Karen Kingsbury’s most beloved characters are back!
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes A Baxter Family Christmas, a life-changing story of love and hope featuring the Baxter family.
Whether you’re meeting the Baxter family for the first time, or finding them all over again…A Baxter Family Christmas will leave fingerprints on your heart forever.
Two years have passed since the terrible car accident that took the life of John Baxter’s daughter, Erin, her husband and three of their four daughters. Prompted by grief, and missing his daughter, John has invited a stranger for Christmas Eve dinner—Kendra Bryant, the transplant recipient who now has Erin’s heart.
In light of their father’s idea, Ashley and her brother Luke don’t think it’s right. They want to protect their ten-year-old niece, Amy—the only surviving member of the accident. But John is determined and believes meeting this woman is something his deceased daughter would want.
At the same time, Maddie West, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Brooke Baxter West, is praying for meaning this Christmas. Could she find it in a newfound friendship with a boy she never expected to see again? Maddie believes in miracles, especially at Christmastime, but this is a stretch even she can’t imagine.
Meanwhile, Kendra Bryant has been struggling these past few years to find purpose in the tragedy that gave her a second chance. She believes the invitation to see the Baxters and witness their unwavering faith in God can instill peace and happiness back into her life.
Heartwarming and touching, filled with love and redemption, A Baxter Family Christmas brings together two families in the aftermath of loss and in the midst of an unfolding love story, all with the help of one very special child.

Becky5 Stars Out Of 5Karen Kingsbury bookJanuary 5, 2017BeckyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love Karen's books and probably have read most if not all of them. Seemed you had the cheaper prices on this book and order 2 more for my sister to read. Don't know if they like her as well as I do but they got it for Christmas.
Love the way Karen writes and the bringing of Christ in all of her books.

NanceeGrand Rapids, MichiganAge: Over 65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A surprise for ChristmasDecember 27, 2016NanceeGrand Rapids, MichiganAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I've read a number of the Baxter Family's early books, and this particular book still brings back character memories and events from the past.
I found the first half or more of this particular book a bit slow and written for a younger audience in my estimation. I was somewhat surprised at that revelation since the earlier books in this series were very entertaining and a bit faster paced.
Eventually the book reached a pivotal point that was so touching and sensitive that it brought me to tears more than once. This sensitivity continued through to the end of the book, and "wowed" me! The last third of the book is what I remember of Karen Kingsbury's earlier books. Don't give up on this one. There is much to absorb toward the end of this book!
