Bailey Flanigan is a wonderful role model for young women today. I am so happy that Karen Kingsbury has given Bailey a series of her own. We have "watched" Bailey grow up though out several other series by Mrs. Kingsbury. Leaving is book #1 in the Bailey Flanigan Series and was well worth the wait. This book will touch the hearts of all mothers who are watching, waiting or have already seen there daughters grow up and leave home. It was wonderful to watch Bailey pray and listen to God's will for her life. The story line for Cody was also used to show his spiritual growth and the redeeming power of the Lord. I look forward to reading, Learning(book #2), Longing(book #3) and Loving(book #4) in this series.
I was great to see Landon and Ashley's story continue in this book also. This couple models a Christian marriage as it should be in a world gone crazy. Through many heartaches this family has grown and become even more faithful to the Lord. I am praying that these characters will have the happy ending I am hoping for, but then again, God is in charge and the story line will go His way.
Keep the books coming, Karen as you continue to let God use you to make a difference in this world through your writing. You have a fan for life.
I received this book from Zondervan for my honest review.
Either Ms. Kingsbury is not paying attention to her timelines in her books or there are editing problems. Also, there are some issues with your e-Book quality as far as layout is concerned. I have purchased several e-Books from you, and it seems that this is a consistent problem.
Karen Kingsbury is my favorite author. Leaving is such a great book that I couldn't put it down. I read the whole book in just 1 day and already can't wait for the rest of the series. I am team Cody! God has blessed Mrs. Kingsbury with a gift for writing. Her books can be used as reading books for homeschooling. Have a blessed day.
