Forever Faithful By Karen Kingsbury

I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah's Blogging For Books program for free for my honest review of this book.

Book Description:
The entire best-selling Forever Faithful trilogy, now available in one volume:

Waiting for Morning
A drunk driver...a deadly accident...a dream destroyed. When Hannah Ryan loses her husband and oldest daughter to a drunk driver, she is consumed with hate and revenge. Ultimately, it is a kind prosecutor, a wise widow, and her husband's dying words that bring her the peace that will set her free and let her live again.

A Moment of Weakness
When childhood friends Jade and Tanner reunite as adults, they share their hearts, souls, and dreams of forever--until a fateful decision tears them apart. Now, nearly a decade later, Jade's unfaithful husband wants to destroy her in a custody battle that is about to send shock waves across the United States. Only one man can help Jade in her darkest hour. And only one old woman knows the truth that can set them all free.

Halfway to Forever
Matt and Hannah...Jade and Tanner--after already surviving much, these couples must now face the greatest struggles of their lives: parental losses and life-threatening illness threaten to derail their faith and sideline their futures. Can Hannah survive the loss of an adopted daughter? Will Tanner come through decades of loneliness only to face losing Jade one final time?


My Thoughts:

WOW!!!!! This collection of stories is very, very powerful. I had not read any books by Karen Kingsbury until this one and all I can say again is WOW. The 3 stories, Waiting for Morning, A Moment of Weakness, and Halfway to Forever, show tragedy and finding love and happiness in the face of tragedy. Each story has its own start and finish but they are very connected. Karen Kingsbury writes such powerful stories of tragedy, loss of faith, love, and finding faith in the middle of all the tragedy. These books are centered on Christian beliefs and scripture but not in a way that is preaching or overbearing. These stories leave a lasting impression on you. The characters of each book are very real people whose lives are NOT perfect but have a strong faith in God. The topics addressed in each book like drunk driving laws, were very well researched. All of the stories really caught me and kept my interest to the end. These stories are beautifully written and honest. I highly recommend this Trilogy to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction. I will definitely be looking for more books by Karen Kingsbury.
