Product Description

Learn how the Baxter’s story began when John and Elizabeth Baxter were young college students brought together by heartbreak.

Almost forty years later John’s teenage grandson asked to interview him so he could write a family history paper. Thirty years into their marriage, Elizabeth died of cancer, making John apprehensive about reliving the details of that chapter in his life especially since he later remarried. He did eventually agree to share the story. The entire family enjoyed learning about their heritage and felt blessed by Cole’s report.

Publisher's Description

An instant New York Times bestseller!

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a new book featuring everyone’s favorite family—the Baxters, which tells the story of how John and Elizabeth first fell in love.

From the day they met, John and Elizabeth were destined to fall in love. Their whirlwind romance started when they were young college students and lasted nearly thirty years—until Elizabeth died of cancer.

So when John Baxter is asked to relive his long-ago love story with Elizabeth for his grandson Cole’s heritage project, he’s not sure he can do it. The sadness might simply be too great. But he agrees and allows his heart and soul to go places they haven’t gone in decades. Back to the breathless first moments, but also to the secret heartbreak that brought John and Elizabeth together.

At the same time, Baxter family friend Cody Coleman is working through the breakup of his complicated relationship with Andi Ellison. He is determined to move on when a chance sighting changes his plans—and heart. Can Cody convince Andi to give their love another try, or is it time for them to say goodbye for good?

As school comes to an end, Cole presents his report on the love story between his grandparents John and Elizabeth Baxter. It is a tale that touches the hearts of the entire family, and one that causes Cole to better understand his own beginning.

Whether you’re meeting the Baxter family for the first time or finding them all over again, Love Story will stir your heart and remind you of the generational impact of love and the eternal bond of family.

    Such a touching and inspiring story. Even though it is John and Elizabeth's love story, the book is so much more than that. It provides stories from many of the characters from all the Baxter family books. Loved how even though its been a while since we had a new book about this family its like things pick up close to where the previous series ended plus even if you haven't read any of the series it gives enough back story to completely follow the story. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

    This book, "Love Story," seriously is Karen Kingsbury's best novel so far and my new KK fave! The Baxter Family "Love Story" is absolutely amazing, inspiring, and touching!!! If you don't know the Baxters, that's okay! The way KK intertwined the characters of the Baxter Family throughout this love story is just brilliant! If you do know the Baxters, you will find out the beginning of Elizabeth's and John's Love Story, and oh what a story it is!! And how Cody struggles with his broken engagement from Andi, because he never stopped loving her. Get out the tissues and happy reading!!!

    BTW...a TV series of Karen Kingsbury's Baxter Family is coming soon!

    I have read about the Baxters from their very first debut. After a couple of spin off series, I stopped following the story, but was intrigued when I found this title. I was able to pick the story back up and follow the story line without feeling as if I had missed information and I was able to fully enjoy where the story resumed. As always, Karen Kingsbury offers true to life, vibrant characters who each had a part to tell without overwhelming the reader. I was challenged in my view of life while still enjoying the magic of getting lost in an amazing story.

    If you haven't read any of Karen's books in the past you are missing out!! And if you have you definitely want to read this one!! Such a sweet beginning that came in the perfect timing of things. I'm really glad that she chose to go back to the beginning of it all and fill in this part of the story. With Karen's writing you get some real, raw events but they are woven into the story so well that you are swept into it with the characters. Back in a simpler day that wasn't for them very simple... I recommend that you check this one out!!

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    I read the first and second series of the Baxters and LOVED it. I dont think I ever cried so much while reading books. I kind of lost interest after that and havent read much more. But when I saw this book I had to hear John and Elizabeths story.

    The cool thing Karen did in this book was interweave another love story into it as well. One full of disappointment and heartache as well.

    I soon found myself full of emotion and holding back tears and of being deeply engrossed in this story.

    There is no doubt that Karen Kingsbury is a very talented author and knows how to put together a story that is not only emotionally moving but spiritually as well. I love the faith of these characters. They have had trails like all of us but that hasnt stopped them leaning on Jesus.

    Even if you havent read the Baxter series you could read this one anyway, but for those of you who have read their story this is a MUST read.

    A copy of this book was given to my through Netgalley.com. All opinions are my own.
