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.

    I am in the process of reading "Love Story", "The Baxter Family Series #1". I have read all of the "Baxter" books & have enjoyed all of them. I like the Christian theme of her books & I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

    When I am through reading the books, I pass them along for someone else to read or give them to the church library. I have also recommended her books to others.

    I've read most of Karen Kingsbury's books, and like some better than others. This one, Love Story, held my interest but I found the emoting to be a little over the top and somewhat unrealistic. I find it hard to believe that men are so in touch with emotional issues. I don'r know many people who respond to each other in the ways the book portrayed - with that kind of intensity. Nevertheless, I did enjoy the story and wanted to see how it would end. The hardback was a little pricey & I'd hoped for paperback, which I assume will come later.

    An amazing story of love, redemption, perseverance, and growth. I enjoy the way Karen Kingsbury has used background information from several of her previous series as a springboard into the telling of the love story of John and Elizabeth Baxter in more detail. I think I was anticipating more of a historical treatment of their story as they lived it. However, the approach is much more refreshing as John Baxter shares it with his grandson Cole as he relives it in his mind. Then Cole suddenly springs the question on his mother, Ashley, about hers and his dad's love story. Although not as detailed as John and Elizabeth's story, there are parts of several other love stories that increase the interest level. For the reader who takes time to read carefully and pay attention, valuable lessons are shared through the pages of the story. I think anyone can benefit from reading this book.
