Waiting for Morning-book review


About the Book:

“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's newest novel, COMING HOME - The Baxter Family - releases June 26 and is the subject of much buzz on Karen's active Facebook page, where she had more than 250,000 friends. There is also great anticipation over THE BRIDGE, Karen's much-anticipated first hardback release with her new publisher - Simon & Schuster's Howard Books.

In addition, Karen has ventured into the area of short pieces with her new non-fiction series - KAREN KINGSBURY, THE REST OF THE STORY. Her first piece, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE, has touched the hearts of tens of thousands of readers interested in knowing more about Karen's personal life and the motivation behind her Life-Changing Fiction (TM). I CAN ONLY IMAGINE shares the story of Karen's brother, his struggles, and his quest for redemption.

Karen's novel LIKE DANDELION DUST is the subject of a major motion picture currently in theaters.

Karen's most recent series - the Bailey Flanigan Series, wrapped up in March. Coming Home - The Baxter Family - is a stand-alone novel about John Baxter's 70th Birthday and the tragedy that happens during June, 2010 with Take Four. The series is about two producers looking to change the world with the power of film. The Above the Line series also includes Karen's popular characters from the fictitious Baxter Family.

Karen and her husband, Don, live in Nashville, TN with their five sons, three of whom are adopted from Haiti. Their daughter Kelsey is an actress who has appeared in several Christian films. She is newly married to Christian recording artist Kyle Kupecky. The two also live in Nashville.

My Opinion:

I always know that I'm going to get something out of a Karen Kingsbury book, she's one of my all time favorite Christian authors.  She paints a picture with her words and stories, I usually laugh and cry while reading her books and this one was a heart breaker I think I went through a box of kleenex while reading Waiting for Morning!  While reading Waiting for Morning I was imagining what I would do if I was in this same situation and I just couldn't make it without the Lord's help.  Although, I pray this never happens to me or anyone else that I know, it would be such a tragedy and those feelings of rage that were written about have to be horrible.  This book is very well written and takes you into a woman's depths of despair, rage, sorrow and pain and how she comes through it with her faith in tact. 5 stars out of 5 stars for all of the emotions this book brought up, if you don't want to cry then do NOT read this one, it's a tear jerker for sure!  I better mention that this is book 1 in the Forever Faithful Trilogy.



This book can be purchased on Amazon for $10.94 for the paperback or $9.99 for the Kindle edition.



Thanks for reading,
