Another book well done by Karen Kingsbury Oct. 21 2006
By momto4boys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just finished reading this book moments ago, and decided to post immediately. This was the best book in the Firstborn series so far. Karen Kingsbury has a gift given by God to captivate readers to get wrapped up in her books as if they are really the characters like Dayne Matthews and Katy Hart, not to mention the entire Baxter family. And the preview for book #5 has already piqued my interest, so that I am anxiously awaiting it's arrival in March!!!!

The best series by Karen Kingsbury Nov. 3 2006
By M. Kay DeFreese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I agree with the other poster that this one is the best yet in the series. I think I enjoyed it because finally Dayne got to connect with some of his family, his relationship with Katy stregnthed and went to a new level and his relationship with the Lord only got stronger. Be sure to have a hankerchief on hand for some touching but happy moments. Looking forward to the next book in the series which is sure to bring some new obstacles according to the preview chapter at the end of this book. If you don't want to be spoiled please avoid reading the preview chapter.

superb inspirational drama Nov. 4 2006
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Though she will be a star witness at the assault trial of Margie Madden that does not frighten her as she survived the woman's efforts to make her the latest Los Angeles' homicide statistic. However, Katy Hart fears her new found fame and her relationship to Hollywood heartthrob Dayne Matthews will make her a paparazzi moment in which her privacy and those of her family will be forsaken. Still she believes their love for one another will carry her through the trial though she it not as confident about their relationship surviving his fame.

Dayne feels on top of the world since he met and fell in love with Katy; much greater than any of his films have taken him. Through his love for his cherished Katy, he and his father John Baxter have gotten together and he has forgiven him and his late mother even as he looks forward to meeting his siblings. However, he does not want them or Katy to become meals of a media feeding frenzy that his blood link if exposed will bring to them.

Fans of the Firstborn series will enjoy the continuation of the Baxter family saga, which inspires the audience to believe in God's overall plan even when it feels off kilter. The story line is action-packed especially during the trial scenes and insightful as the Baxter brood, Dayne, and Katy forge new relationships. Though the repugnance of the paparazzi is overkill, series readers will appreciate this entry while newcomers should start with book one FAME and continue sequentially (through FORGIVEN and FOUND) to better grasp the complex interrelation nuances of the extended FAMILY.

Karen Kingsbury is creating a myth May 15 2010
By C. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have just read poured through the Redemption Series and the First Born series. At first I couldn't get enough of them and wanted to keep reading. I wanted to find out everything I could about the family. On reflection, though, something is troubling me about these books. Despite wanting to keep reading, I wonder if they are something like Junk Food...wonderful to gobble through, but not quite nourishing the body as it should. The thing that bothers me most about these books is the "Princess dream" (for want of a better word), that Karen seems to perpetuate in every book. This theme is the underlying message that occurs every Mills and Boons, one where the beautiful woman is rescued / made-whole / courted / restored by the dashing, handsome, strong but slightly troubled male. I worked hard for 20 years to build a wonderful marraige with my husband....and it was about 10 years ago that I was struck deeply by the fact that my princess illusion would never come true. Despite my wonderful man, he was never going to be the prince that appeared in romance fiction.
I sincerely hope that other women do not buy into this illusion. No man will ever fill that longing and yearing we have for Love. Only God can do this for us. I feel that Karen Kingsbury is buying into this myth too much and it can destroy a woman's soul when she buys into it as well. Watch out....not everyman is Dayne Matthews, or Landon, or Ryan or John or Luke Baxter. They are just our men and we need to love them.
