Book Description

Oct. 20 2005 Redemption Series (Book 3)

A Shattered Relationship

Luke, golden boy and the Baxter family’s only son, has walked away from everything that mattered most to him: his faith, his family, and Reagan, his only love. Devastated by the events of September 11, 2001, Luke decides that life is random, faith a fraud, and God a fantasy.

A Secret

A baby is about to be born, but with Reagan a thousand miles away in New York City, Luke has no idea he’s the father. Now, though, someone in his family learns the truth. The problem? She has a secret of her own, one that will change the Baxters’ lives forever.

A Revelation

What will it take for Luke to return to the family who loves and aches for him? And what extremes will a certain young firefighter take to help bring the Baxters together again, and in the process, find his place in the family?

A story of tenacious love and longing for a lost son

From AudioFile

After 9/11, Luke Baxter leaves his faith in the ashes of the twin towers, convinced that life is uncertain, his faith a delusion, and God nonexistent. His fiancée, Reagan, lost her father the same day. Despite their intentions, their passions had consumed them the night before, and when Reagan learns she's pregnant, Luke has already walked out. With narrative skill and a gentle voice that lends itself to vivid characterizations, Sandra Burr captures each personality and gender role with ease in this story of forgiveness and healing. Her mercurial vocalizations adapt to the rising tension of a medical crisis that forces life-changing decisions. The message of hope shines through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Oct. 10 2003
By A Customer
Return continues the story of the Baxter family and their loved ones facing life after all that happened in Remember, including September 11th. The characters are well developed and the story lines hearbreaking and uplifting, often at the same time.
Remember was the first Karen Kingsbury book I'd read. I was totally enthralled and read it in only a few days. I just bought Return, anxious to learn of the characters and relationships that reminded me of my own family in different ways. I started Return last night and finished it this morning...a complete page turner.
Each chapter had me needing to know what happened next. Unlilke another Kinsbury novel I read recently (One Tuesday Morning), there wasn't endless set-up and whole paragraphs to skip over. I read every word and had to cover the bottom halves of the pages so I wouldn't peek.
One Caveat: As in Redemption and Return, the story lines are serious and not always happily-ever-after, instead it's more of a Hopefully-ever-after. But this book hit home one many levels with me and my family as we're going through numerous crisis with various family members. The messages whispered to the characters spoke directly to me, God's words driven home with tangible situations.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'm now looking forward to her next book in this series. Kinda wish I hadn't read this one the same month it was released!
NOTE: This is the third book in a series, but it can easily stand alone and reading the previous books isn't necessary to quickly learn and love the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Issues Jan. 26 2004
By Joan R
This series deals with real life issues faced by one family. It doesn't gloss over them as may be the tendency in some "Christian" books. They face hardships and many times do not deal with them in the "ideal" way. This book demonstrates how God can work through all the events in our "less than perfect lives," as demonstrated through the Baxter family. I highly recommend this series, and can hardly wait for the next book to be written. Karen Kingsbury and Gary Smalley (authors) make it natural for the reader to identify with the characters on the pages of this book, and discover God's faithfulness even when things go awry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return Jan. 17 2004
I am almost finished with this book, it is an absolute page turner. I read the first two in her series last summer and could not wait for the next edition, and will eagerly await the next one. I have been so blessed by how you(Karen andGary) are using scriptures to make points in the people's life. Many of the scriprtures are just what I need to be reminded of in my daily life as a nurse.
Also their lives are very much like all of our lives, integrating all the problems and how, when they look to God then His plans will fall into place, because He has great plans for us.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed by this Christian novel Feb. 8 2004
I admit, I didn't read the first two books of this series. But I really didn't need to. The author spends a whole lot of time reminding you of past events. Also, I'm amazed that this family is so messed up. I understand we live in the real world, and we're all sinful, and people make lots of mistakes, but come on. I bought this book because I was interested in reading some Christian fiction (I'm more partial to Georgette Heyer and Jane Austin myself), and well, I came away disappointed. Back to regency novels for me, I guess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next book in the series! Nov. 13 2003
The women in my small group at church introduced me to this wonderful series. I have read all 3 of the books and am anxious to read the next. Following the lives of the Baxter family through their trials, heartaches, and happiness helps illustrate the powerful message of the necessity of putting God first in our lives...
I have laughed, smiled and cried in each of these books and can't wait to do it again with the next!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED IT! March 19 2004
By A Customer
This book is simply AMAZING! I was hooked as soon as I opened it and can't stop reading it again and again. It is beautiful. It touches your heart with a message of love. God's love expressed through a family's love for eachother and the romantic kind of love that women LOVE to read about. This story has taken me on a rollercoaster of emotions: laughing, crying from sadness, and crying from joy. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely gripping Nov. 3 2003
This one is the best one yet, I cried in the first quarter of this book. Karen your writing skills in this series are truly God's hands writing through yours. And the series is so timely. It gives hope in a world that sometimes seems truly hopeless; hope for love, hope for joy, hope for reconciliations, hope in every area of one's life. Please quickly write Reunion, I simply am on pins and needles awaiting it's debut!
