Two couples torn apart—one by war between countries, one by war within.

In this moving sequel to Even Now, Emily Anderson, now twenty, is attending college on a soccer scholarship when she meets the man who changes everything for her: Army reservist Justin Baker. Their tender relationship, founded on a mutual faith in God and nurtured by their trust and love for each other, proves to be a shining inspiration to everyone they know, especially Emily’s reunited birth parents, Lauren Gibbs and Shane Galanter.

Lauren and Shane still struggle to move past their opposing beliefs about war, politics, and faith. Shane believes it’s possible but Lauren doesn’t. So she says a painful good-bye to her long-ago love and returns to her job as a war correspondent in Afghanistan.

Both hearts are shattered, and Lauren and Shane believe that this time their relationship has truly ended forever. Then tragedy sends shock waves through all their lives. Can Lauren and Shane set aside their opposing views so that love—God’s love—might win, no matter how great the odds?

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jana | 1/13/2014

    " It was pretty predictable, and a little too political for me. I also really wish Kingsbury would get a different reader for her audiobooks. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 shannon | 1/5/2014

    " I LOVED this book! I literally cried almost all the way through...it was tough for me to read b/c of that but it was such a GREAT book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 12/28/2013

    " I love Karen Kingsbury. She did an outstanding job of expressing support for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, but I found it incredibly sad. It was just difficult reading for me, bringing back such tragic memories of the Vietnam war. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christin | 12/25/2013

    " Sequel to Even Now "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 12/1/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 11/22/2013

    " Another tear jerker. This one was close to home--literally. It is set right here at Fort Lewis and the story reminded me of a friend lost in the war. I probably wouldn't recommend it to my military friends unless they were looking for catharsis and have a box of tissues handy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 10/6/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 9/26/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Haleigh | 4/27/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 1/20/2013

    " Very inspiring book. Get your tissues out though. It's a powerful story about patroitism & sacrifices. Maybe it was the timing of reading this book but it really touched my heart. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin Keogh | 9/17/2012

    " 4 1/2 stars

    This is such a sweet story that i wish i read in high school. People should read it just so they know what soldiers families and wives go through. Really, it opened my eyes. Warning you might need a kleenex. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 3/16/2011

    " Not my favorite Kingsbury book. As previous reviewers have mentioned, she spends a LOT of time talking about the war in Iraq, the feelings about it, etc, and precious little time developing the characters. But... it was an okay book, and I might read it again at some point in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 3/8/2011

    " Well, I learned a lesson here...don't read war stories when your husband is deployed. Man, I cried like a baby....through like half the book. But, the story was good, and at least it ended up happy. I was worried there for a bit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faye | 9/17/2010
