I have now read this series for the second time and I can tell you it was even better the second time through! Be ready to have that box of tissue ready at your disposal because you are going to need them. Wow, Karen Kingsbury has that gift to bring our emotions to the forefront. She can make us laugh, cry and then turn around and do it all over again.

In this Forever Faithful Trilogy we have, Waiting for Morning, A Moment of Weakness, and Halfway and Forever. In book one we witness how tragedy can bring us to the breaking point in the blink of an eye. But Kingsbury shows us we are never alone and God always and forever has a plan. In book 2, we see what can happen when we allow our feeling to overtake us and in one choice life changes forever. In the last book we see how God doesn't just bring us half way through an experience and leave us there to fend for ourselves. He carries us all the way through. Even when we cannot see what's up ahead, He can and through it all, He is preparing us for each experience.

We meet the Ryan family and we have a front seat into their living room window. The story continues with Jade and Connor. In book three the life of these very relatable characters brings us to love them even more. You feel as though you have walked the valleys with them and laughed through the great joys that has touched their lives.

I absolutely loved this book and you will too!

This book was a gift from WaterBrook Multnomah Press for it's review.
