What will it take to get Luke Baxter's attention? A shattered relationship Luke, the Baxter family's golden boy and 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. But 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. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
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.

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.
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.
I have laughed, smiled and cried in each of these books and can't wait to do it again with the next!
