Coming Home by Karen Kingsbury

Coming Home is a novel about tremendous victory and unprecedented loss, a story of faith and a forever kind of love, love that will stay with you long after the last page.

This stand-alone novel will serve as either a grand introduction or a beautiful conclusion in the saga of the Baxter Family.

The Baxters make plans to come together for a summer lakeside reunion, a celebration like they haven't had in years. But before the big day, the unthinkable happens. As the Baxter Family rallies together, memories come to light in the grief-stricken hours of waiting and praying, memories that bring healing and hope during a time when otherwise darkness might have the final word.

In a season that changes all of them, the brilliance of family love overshadows even the valley of heartache as the Baxters draw closer to God and each other. Along the way, secrets are revealed and the truth about the Baxter Family history is finally made known. Ultimately, in this portrait of family love, the Baxters cling to each other and to God's promise of forever.

Heartbreaking and inspirational, this final book in the Baxter Family series is a real winner! I am likely one of very few who have not read any prior books in this series, and I was willing to give it a try because it was also rated as a stand-alone novel. I was not disappointed, and thoroughly enjoyed it from cover to cover.

It is very hard to write a review on this one without giving away spoilers. Let me just say this much, if you love novels that show close family ties and unconditional love and support for each other, then pick up a copy of Coming Home. It is definitely one that I won't soon forget. But be prepared for tears, and also for some personal soul searching about your own family relationships.

Coming Home is a wonderful example of the way families should relate to each other. It's a story of accepting God's will in our lives, even when we can't understand why things happen. I give this one a huge thumbs up!
