A decent listen... not her best.

I have read everyone of Karen Kingsbury's novels except this one. I love them all, some more than others, this is ranked kinda low for me. The narrator was a little overwhelming in the "emotional" parts of the book. A decent listen, but unless you want to catch up to the amazing sequel A MOMENT OF WEAKNESS, not sure i'd waste a book credit.

"Great is thy Faithfulness"

Very emotional and touching story. Barbara Caruso does an excellent job narrating. You can feel the empathy in her voice as she does the different characters. Personally, she is one of my favorite narrators.

Waiting for Morning

I loved this beautiful story of forgiveness! After reading many, many books by this author over the last ten years, I am still delighted to be finding wonderful books by her that I have not read. I thought this one was amazing.
I also loved Barbara Caruso’s reading of the story, more than many of Karen Kingsbury’s stories on tape. The book was a beautiful experience!

Age matters?

Powerful, believable. I had a sense for where the story was going from the outset. Nonetheless, I thought it was very much worth the read.
That said, I’ve never experienced this with any other book, but at the outset I thought this was the story of a younger woman than the reader’s voice suggested. Now finished, I have accepted the image of a who is older than the narrative might suggest. Hate to say that, given that I thought the narrator did a Very good job with all other aspects—cadence, portrayal of characters’ emotions, etc.

Kingsbury emerges us in the scene to guess the reactions and feel the emotional conflicts. The characters are our neighbors and

Very well written. Great characterizations. We find ourselves asking questions about how we would deal with unexpected issues and their relationship to our spiritual journey! Very well read in the Audible version.led my wife and I to ask ourselves, “How would I react to an unthinkable tragedy? What would it do about my faith in the love and Justice of God. (It drove us to ready anew the book of Lamentations, so often overlooked because Jeremiah opened his heart to the tragedy of Israel’s sin and the judgement that God brought to His chosen people to bring them to repentance, to revival and to reconciliation! Read it!

Good story

The story was a lot darker and heavier than I thought it would be. I am very happy the way it turned out and also believe it humanizes christians when we’re always thought to be perfect with no problems. I struggled to get through the darkness a few times.

Powerful Book on Love & Loss

This book captures your attention from the 1st page. It is captivating with the characters and storyline. It will certainly give you a new appreciation for anyone who has lost a love one to a drunk driver and a reality check into the system. The scriptures at the start of each chapter was fantastic - my favorite part! Powerful story! Karen Kingsbury is a spiritually gifted author! She allows the Lord to share His message through her books! Praise God - we need more authors like Karen Kingsbury!
