Product Description

From the Inside Flap

A New Beginning
Hollywood actor Dayne Matthews and Katy Hart are married and living in Bloomington, Indiana, where Dayne has found a solution to his on-camera love scenes-he wants Katy to star in his next film. Katy wins the part and is cast opposite her superstar husband. The story of a small-town girl's dream come true is too much for the press to resist, and in an effort to appease them, the couple agrees to a twelve-episode reality show. It seems like the perfect compromise, but by the time Dayne and Katy finish filming the movie, they feel cracks around the edges of their marriage. Now they face an uncertain future and possibly the end of everything that truly matters to them.

An Unforgettable Summer
The Baxter family rejoices that Ashley and Kari are both pregnant, but an ultrasound reveals that something is wrong with one of the babies. As the summer progresses, the sisters pray for a miracle while trying to face the unthinkable. It's in this trying season that they must all learn the lesson God has been trying to teach them-He is still in control, and He will be with them regardless of the outcome.

An Emotional Farewell
The Flanigans continue to draw closer to their only daughter, yet Bailey struggles to find her way amid the turmoil of adolescence. Her friendship with Cody Coleman-the young boarder staying with the Flanigans-continues to blossom in this summer after his graduation. But when Cody decides to enlist in the army, he'll have to say good-bye to the family he's come to love and the girl he'll never forget.

A story about God's unending faithfulness and the trials and triumphs of this one unforgettable summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best! Aug. 18 2016

This was the hardest but the most stirring of any I have read. It was so much like real life in that we sometimes struggle with the things that God allows in our lives but later see His mighty hand working all the while when we thought He had left us. Thanks for the reminder that 'all things work together for good' even when we don't understand.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Sept. 12 2007
By Anne Langston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I admit it, I'm hooked on the Baxter family, and this book was one of the best installments of the three series. Without giving too much away, it contains a very sensitive portrayal of a tragic situation. The ending was very touching and very honest. The subplots were handled well; I especially appreciated the Katy/Dayne subplot. Among other things,it revisited Katy's tendency to believe the tabloids before Dayne, something that was established in the Firstborn series and never really resolved. All in all, a great read. My husband half jokingly asked if there was gold in the book, I was so absorbed in it. I told him there sure was! However, I wouldn't recommend this to someone who hasn't at least read the first book in the series, if not the two earlier Baxter family series. I think it would be way too confusing.
5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED this book July 9 2010

I saw Karen for the first time at a Women of Joy conference in Louisville KY 2009. I love to read and had heard of her but hadnt bought any of her books. After the conference and the reaction that she got from everyone (including guys) in the room, I had to start her books. I started with the first Baxter series because everyone told me to! I just finished this book and WOW...I just love her books. I sobbed so hard at the end of this book that my husband thought something was wrong. It only matched when Elizabeth died. Her books are a true blessing with so much to take from them. Thanks Karen for being a blessing and sharing it with others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful book from Karen Kingsbury Oct. 1 2007
By Linda Haskins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This latest book in the Sunrise Series about the lives of the Baxters from Karen Kingsbury did not disappoint me .It was one of the most thought provoking story lines yet .Ashley was told that she would have a baby with a profound fatal birh defect .Her sister , Brook, is a doctor and looks at things from a medical standpoint and this puts her at odds with her faith and Ashley's beliefs when she tries to influence Ashley to take the easier ( as she sees it) way out.It is a beautiful story with issues that we all deal with at one time or another in our lives .Karen's books teach us how to look at life biblically and prayerfuly.I can't tell you what a huge impact her writings have had on my life.
4.0 out of 5 stars Baxter family saga July 31 2016

Books are fairly predictable plot lines. If you become interested in the family characters then you will want to read what happens to them along the way
