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.

    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.

    its fun to get back to the Baxter family and all the familiar beloved characters. You can still read and enjoy this book even if you have not read previous Baxter family books, because the author catches you up on necessary history and back story as needed. (Even the avid Karen Kingsbury readers can forget a few details over the years)

    This book focuses on the matriarch & patriarch of the Baxter family - John & Elizabeth. John relives their love story from the beginning as he shares it with his grandson for a school project. As you read you will learn that love may be budding in the hearts of some other characters as well.

    This review was written for Love Story - eBook.
    I fell in love with Karen Kingsbury books just as I fell in love with the Baxter family. If you have not yet read any of her books about the Baxter family, you can start here and be just fine, her books fill you in on any part you may have missed in previous books. However if you are like myself and have read most, if not all of this series of books about the Baxter family here is another great one.

    There are over twenty, (yes, twenty) books around the Baxter family. some may wonder how anyone can write so many books about one family and they not get boring, well read this series and you will see. You will fall in love with the entire family even their family friends. You will laugh, cry and maybe find yourself in one or more of the characters in one of these books.

    This book takes you to the very beginning, to a love story about the Baxter family parents. There is heartache, struggles, finding God and so much more.

    Kingsbury has a unique style, each chapter may be from a different characters perspective and in this book some are even taking you back into the past. There are typically more than one main focus throughout the book, but as a reader you are not lost.

    I love the way her characters are flawed, they are very much life like. I am so glad to hear more from the Baxter family and hope there are more to come.
