Excellent story about listening to God's timing, rather than your own. I really like the way the author takes time to get you to look at what the story is about in terms of your own life after reading the story.

This is the conclusion of the Firstborn series, featuring Dayne Matthews and Katy Hart. This one is a little slow moving in terms of action, but the stories are peppered throughout with the Baxters which is always a treat. This book really spoke to my spirit on several matters of how to live life as a Christian, walking out your beliefs, without being preachy.
This is the fifth book in the second set of series (Firstborn) with the Baxter Family. There are three sets of series:
Redemption Series (5 books)
Firstborn Series (5 books)
Sunrise Series (4 books)
In addition, the Above the Line Series by Karen Kingsbury also includes the Baxter family.
I have found these books are not good stand alone books as the ending always leaves a little suspense for the reader that only the future books in the series will help answer.
Tragedy strikes, and love is tested and celebrated as the main characters, Katy and Dayne learn what faith is all about. The Baxters are ever present in the book too, as well as the Flanigans who Katy lives with.
This book was amazing, even for Karen Kingsbury. A satisfying finish to the Firstborn series, a few tissues for the strong emotional reaction, and of course looking forward to the Sunrise series coming out to continue the adventures with these characters.
Another of Karen Kingsbury's inspiring stories about the Baxter family. She never disappoints in the quality of her writing, and the story is always filled with their dependence upon God to carry them through each situation.
