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.

Another good Kingsbury novel, however, I found it a little slow at the beginning. Maybe it was just me, but it took me a while to get into it.

I neeeded this book to continue the Firstborn series. I loved it, as I did the others. Karen Kingsbury is a wonderful Christian author. I'm sad that I've completed the series now.

Dayne Matthews is at the top of the Hollywood list, working on what may be his best movie yet. Still, he is empty and unfocused, aching for real love and the family he'll never know. Then a friend tells him about a teaching center and a way to become like God. In the same season, the Christian Kids Theater group is devastated by a tragedy greater than any of them could've imagined. Now their director, Katy Hart, must find a way to walk the kids through their grief, and give them a reason to believe again. John Baxter, meanwhile, reconnects with an old friend, and shares a buried secret, one that he and his wife shared all their married lives. Now, in his wife's honor, he decides to continue a very special search. But in the process he makes a critical mistake. What will happen when one of his daughters stumbles onto a letter she was never supposed to see? In this season for the Baxters, grace and redemption will play a greater role than ever before.

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.
