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.
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.
