The first book in the Sunrise series, continuing with characters from the Redemption and Firstborn series. Dayne and Katy are planning a wedding and trying to keep it a secret from the media. Coach Flanigan tries to crack down on drinking among the high school football players. Great characters, realistic plot. Made me cry, like most of her books do.

This is the first book in the third set of series (Sunrise) 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.

These books are easy reads, and very enjoyable. A little suspense, lots of love, and life lessons are generally thrown in for good measure!

Karen Kingsbury just keeps getting better and better. Every book I've read of hers of wonderful. This book is a great story about how God answers our prayers, about faith in Him to different degrees and about how He can do anything--miracles and all! Hard to put down! Anybody got the next in the series: Summer?

I have enjoyed each of the books in the Baxter series. As the first one in this set Sunrise follows a fairly predicatable path. The storyline of Dayne and Katy (main characters in this one) seemed a bit drawn out; could have moved through a longer timeline I think. That said, this book did a great job of showing some new struggles - pressure put on young athletes by parents and the damage the pressure puts on a relationship and alchol abuse by high school age and the indifference among many. It also reinforced the subjects of forgiveness (which is always needed), purity (did good job of showing practical ways of avoiding temptation), and the pressure on widow's with adult children - their need to build new friendships and how that affects their children. Great read; looking forward to next one.

Great book, but reading the previous series of books helps because they all involve the same family.

Just fabulous... love the way Karen Kingsbury intertwines the family stories and keeps you guessing how it will all turn out. And so appreciate the Christian undertones of teaching and re-enforcing our faith.

Even though this says Book 1, you need to go Karen Kingsbury's website and read the books in the correct order or you won't get the most out of them.

Another good book about the Baxters, Flanigans, Dayne Matthews, and Katy Hart!

Without being a spoiler, this is the one you've been waiting for!
