Waiting for Morning-book review

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?

My Opinion:
I've been a huge fan of Karen Kingsbury for many years but I had not ever read this book so I was really excited when it arrived in my mailbox.  I tore the envelope open and proceeded to ignore my housework, lunch and before I knew what had happened my kids were almost late for dance class because I had gotten so wrapped up in Waiting for Morning.  This turned out to be a sad but inspiring book and shows that many times people will question their faith due to horrible circumstances but God prevails and is ALWAYS faithful. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars because even though it was a page turner it was really painful for me to read, I almost set it down a couple of times because the character Jenny but I did finish it up and was pleased that I did.

Thanks for reading,
