Publisher's Description

"I’m afraid there’s been a car accident..."

As Hannah Ryan waits for her family to return home from a camping trip, she realizes she has everything going for her—a husband other women admire, two charming teenage daughters, and a loving Christian home. As the sunny afternoon turns into twilight, her uneasiness grows along with the shadows. Then a car pulls into Hannah’s driveway, bringing two police officers...and devastating news that shatters her life forever.

In the days that follow, Hannah struggles with unspeakable feelings of sorrow and rage—feelings that fuse into one chilling purpose for living: revenge against Brian Wesley, the drunk driver who has caused all her pain.

In her fury, Hannah shuts the Lord out of her life. She’s determined not to forgive Wesley or the God who allowed this tragedy to happen. Can two caring people help Hannah rediscover her faith...before bitterness destroys her?

    Karen Kingsbury is one of the best authors I have come across and her books are quite literally life changing because they convey a situation no one wants to truly deal with and puts the reader in the drivers seat to take the wheel. In her latest novel, Waiting for Morning, it is every wife and mother's dreaded nightmare no one wants to have to face. Hannah Ryan is waiting for her husband and daughters to arrive home from their weekend camping trip. It is one that the three have taken as a way of bringing summer to a close and embracing another school year ahead for the teens. Only this time it would be different as two police officers arrive to tell her that there has been a car accident and that she needs to come with them.

    Brian Wesley has been trying to find a way out of the bottom of the bottle he runs to whenever his life gets out of hand. This is just another of those times. When he gets fired from his job as a mechanic due to trying to stay sober but falling behind in his workload. His boss even tells him that he worked better when he was drunk. Now Brian has to head home and tell his wife Carla that once again he's out of work. It wouldn't be too bad but with the birth of their newborn son, Carla had hoped that Brian might straighten himself out once and for all. She has given him an ultimatum this time, if he starts drinking again, she will leave him for good. He just can't go home without figuring a way out of the mess he has found himself in.

    In a series of divine circumstances, their two worlds will intersect and forever alter their lives. He just never dreamed that he was too drunk to get behind the wheel of his truck and head home. He had done it more times than he could remember and he had hoped it would be just like all the others. His truck went through a traffic light and he plowed into the Explorer that was carrying Hannah's family. The initial impact would send their vehicle mid air and land wrapped around a phone pole. Brian of course would walk away from this but those in the vehicle would not be so lucky and for Hannah, her faith will be tested like never before when she learns the outcome of this accident. Will she be able to trust God no matter what happens? She just hopes that this is a really bad mistake and her family is just late coming home with a reasonable explanation.

    I received Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury compliments of WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This is such an emotional and heart rendering but honest novel. I think we all hope one day that we will never have to face the challenges Hannah has to in this novel, but because it pulls on our emotional heartstrings we can't help but be invested in this story to see how it all plays out. I believe this is a must read to anyone who wonders where God is in the midst of any situation where the outcomes is less than what we have prayed for and conveys a sense of hope that readers can relate to. It doesn't all come wrapped up in a pretty bow with a happily ever after ending and that is what makes her books so genuine and in demand. For me this one easily garners a 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion. This is the first book in the Forever Faithful Series!

    This book has a much needed message for readers. That is one reason I am drawn to Christian fiction, the underlying message of the books.

    After Hannah's family has been killed by a drunk driver, she becomes hardened against God and refuses to forgive. Rather she chooses to devote her time to making sure the perpetrator gets punishment and her family gets justice. Meanwhile, a younger member of Hannah's family is suffering too, but feels like her pain is being ignored. While they are both hurting, they seem to be finding it hard to identify with the other one's pain.

    This book addresses so many issues - drunk driving, forgiveness, justice, mercy, grace, suicide, grief, faith in tragic circumstances. As Hannah tries to find a way to cope with her grief, she joins forces with MADD (mothers against drunk driving). There she meets Carol, a Christian woman, who also lost her husband to a drunk driving accident. Matt, the prosecutor is also a Christian, with many similarities in his background too. Each of her newly found friends, have walked the path Hannah is walking, and are working with Hannah and behind the scenes and to help her cope and renew her faith.

    Karen Kingsbury is an amazing author, and often writes about tough issues.

    What I liked about this book was the message. The importance of forgiveness, and a strong faith in God where He is the TRUE center of your world. Also, how forgiveness does not abolish the need for punishment - Matt the prosecutor strove for the toughest sentence on drunk drivers. The importance of recognizing all the hurting parties and the fact that each person grieves differently. Respecting their need to grieve and doing what you can to help them through the process. Hannah and other representatives of MADD use their voices and experience to make a difference. We can too, whether it is in a case like this, or just something else we have gone through or experienced. Our trials are not in vain, God has a purpose for them.

    I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Karen Kingsbury in her new book, Waiting For Morning Book One in the Forever Faithful series published by Multnomah Books takes us into the life of Hannah Ryan.

    From the back cover: Im afraid theres been a car accident

    As Hannah Ryan waits for her family to return home from a camping trip, she realizes she has everything going for hera husband other women admire, two charming teenage daughters, and a loving Christian home. As the sunny afternoon turns into twilight, her uneasiness grows along with the shadows. Then a car pulls into Hannahs driveway, bringing two police officersand devastating news that shatters her life forever.

    In the days that follow, Hannah struggles with unspeakable feelings of sorrow and ragefeelings that fuse into one chilling purpose for living: revenge against Brian Wesley, the drunk driver who has caused all her pain.

    In her fury, Hannah shuts the Lord out of her life. Shes determined not to forgive Wesley or the God who allowed this tragedy to happen. Can two caring people help Hannah rediscover her faithbefore bitterness destroys her?

    Lamentations is not an oft-quoted book from The Bible as we tend to shy away from it because we do not like to lament because of the pain involved. Lets face it at some point pain will visit all of us. Now, not all of us deal with pain and suffering in the same manner. For some of us there is the need to lash out, to try to make someone else feel pain, especially when they are the one who is the cause of our pain. The need for revenge. That is the story of Hannah. She wants the drunk driver who killed her husband and one daughter to pay and suffer like she is. The problem is not only is she blaming God for her troubles and shutting Him out but she is also neglecting her remaining daughter. This is an amazing story. Hannah is a likable character that doesnt really know how to deal with the overload of pain and suffering. Hannah is a lot like most of us and it is almost a healing for us too as we read about her progress. Ms. Kingsbury has given us a great ride in this book and she has provided us with wonderful characters that we rally around and root for.
