This was another Karen Kingsbury book that I could not put down. She is a great writer that really writes about things that really make you stop and think. If we would only turn over our problems over to God and let him handle them instead of trying to do it ourselves we would be so much better off.
I would highly recommend this book.
This is one of the most brilliant, beautiful books I have EVERY read. I would read it again in a heartbeat and I don't say that about many books. It drew me in from the beginning and kept me reading and reading and reading....I didn't want to put it down.
Like most of her books, it is a nice light read that I can relate to. I enjoyed this book especially because we just dealt with a situation that could have been very similar. The living out of the Christian faith in such a realistic was is refreshing.
Excellent book which leaves you with many questions. Loved the little boy who was adopted by a couple, and then paternal mother and father try to get him back. A mothers love, what do you do? Gods will be done? What God wants for this little boy, will it happen regardless of what the couple does? Did God use this to bring this family to know Him? You will have many questions after reading this.
