"Coming Home" by Karen Kingsbury

Oh, how the Baxter family has touched my life and filled it with joy. It's like they are extended family members. I've gotten to know each character just as if we were neighbors, so when Coming Home was out for review, I knew it was one I had to share.

Although this is a stand alone title, it is an extention of the series that began with Redemption. Yes, you could read this title alone and be blessed beyond your imagination, but I encourage you to go back and begin with Redemption. As series go, this is my all time favorite.

Coming Home takes us back to each Baxter family member and we get to catch up once again. Yes, it was like going home for Thanksgiving. This book holds so much more than catching up. Again we see how Jeremiah 29:11 carries this family through more than they could ever forsee on a day that was to hold such happiness.

HOPE. This is what Karen Kingsbury brings with her penned words. I'm not even sure I could call this an ending as much as a new beginning for a family I fell in love with years ago.

If you are searching for a new gem to fall asleep to or for a series to follow, I promise, this is one you will carry with you for life. Not just a story of fiction, but one that holds life lessons to carry in your heart. Stories that we can relate to. I could never pen enough words to share with you just how valuable this story and all the others are that Karen has penned. Jesus is diffenetly flowing through her pen.

This book was a gift from Zondervan for its review.
