This is the second 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.
In this novel, both main characters from Fame (1st book of Firstborn series) are still at the forefront and questions are still left unanswered as to the direction Katy and Dayne will take whether in their own relationship or those with others. The Baxters are still in the background and updates given in their individual lives. I love this entire series and look forward to moving along in the books.
Karen Kingsbury has skyrocketed to the top of the CBA charts. With Forgiven, she brings readers the second book in her lifechanging Firstborn series.

I enjoyed reading this series. This particular book was one of my favorites. Not only is it entertaining and heartwarming, it speaks of the beautiful forgiveness given to us by a loving Savior. I would recommend it.
