A Time to Embrace by Karen Kingsbury
After nearly divorcing, John and Abby Reynolds have renewed their vows and are feeling like newlyweds. Together they know they can handle the issues of their past, the questions from their children, and even the high school politics that drain the joy from John's coaching career. But then tragedy strikes.
An accident tears at the hearts of their family and the depth of their existence. Fumbling for forgiveness and hoping for a miracle, John and Abby must remember what is important and cling to that above all else.
Together, they're determined to move on with their lives. But is "together" enough for a future they never expected?

All of the Karen Kingsbury novels I have read so far have touched me to the bottom of my heart. Each story is a demonstration of God's love and grace in our lives.
A Time to Embrace is a story that can ultimately change lives. From teenagers who make bad choices, to struggling husbands and wives giving their broken lives a chance to heal, and the premature birth of a child. This book also takes a close look at the parents and players of a high school football team, who are totally obsessed with winning ... no matter what the cost.
The message that I got from this book is that love is not easy. We will all have struggles and trials, but God is always there to give us the strength that we need. Overall, this book is a great story of love, second chances ... and some miracles!
