Karen Kingsbury, #1 New York Times bestselling novelist, is Americas favorite inspirational storyteller, with more than twenty-five million copies of her award-winning books in print. Her last dozen titles have topped bestseller lists and many of her novels are under development as major motion pictures. Her Baxter Family books have been developed into a TV series now available everywhere. Karen is also an adjunct professor of writing at Liberty University. In 2001 she and her husband, Don, adopted three boys from Haiti, doubling their family in a matter of months. Today the couple has joined the ranks of empty nesters, living in Tennessee near four of their adult children.
Ever After, Kingsburys sequel to Even Now, has to be one of the most touching stories I have ever read. It is a story of trust, love, and sacrifice. It is a story about supporting American troops and showing patriotism, even if you dont agree with the cause. It is a story of new beginnings and second chances.
Can Lauren and Shane ever get over there differences as they deal with their renewed relationship? Was theirs truly a teenage romance or was it a love to survive all time? If Lauren decides to walk out and give up because she cant get past her strong views on the war, will there love ever get the chance to experience ever after?
Emily has moved to Tacoma, Washington, to attend college and asks her dad, Shane, to get her a job at the local Army base. She meets Justin, with whom she quickly connects, even on a spiritual level. Can Lauren, her mother, support the decisions Emily is making for her life? Now that she has experienced this fresh, young love of summer, will she and Justin now share ever after?
This book is about discovering new love. It is learning to open your heart and mind to trusting not only others, but most importantly it is about allowing God to have complete control over your life. It is about seeking God for your answers. It is about trusting that God will not only catch you when you start to stumble, but it is also about knowing God will help you when you fall.
One of my favorite things about a Kingsbury novel is the voice that she uses when her characters communicate with God. When her characters pray and talk to God, they stop to listen for Gods response. Kingsburys books remind me that it is only when I commit Scripture to memory that God can use Scripture to speak to me. Ever After is a great example of why Kingsbury is known as Americas favorite inspirational novelist. Brandi Webster, Christian Book Previews.com
