A Deadly Accident The Christian Kids Theater group is devastated by a tragedy greater than any of them could’ve imagined. Now their director, Katy Hart, must find a way to walk the kids through their grief and give them a reason to believe again. But will hatred and revenge have the final word? An Aching Emptiness Dayne Matthews is at the top of the Hollywood list, working on what could be his best movie yet. Still, he is empty and unfocused, aching for real love and the family he’ll never know. Then a friend tells him about a teaching center and a way to become like God. Is this the answer Dayne’s been searching for? A Shocking Discovery John Baxter reconnects with an old friend and shares a buried secret, one that he and his wife shared all their married lives. Now - in his wife’s honor - he decides to continue a very special search. But in the process he makes a critical mistake. What will happen when one of his daughters stumbles onto a letter she was never supposed to see? In this season for the Baxters, grace and redemption will play a greater role than ever before.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ruth | 2/20/2014

    " All right, all right...I know how dumb it is to rate a first book in a series as 1 star and then go on to read the next. What can I say? The second book happened to be on the new books at the library so I decided to give it another shot. I have to say that I'm not impressed with the writing in this series (the first I've read by Kingsbury). The characters, scenarios and conversations just don't ring true at all... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 2/17/2014

    " A story of hope and healing. Very inspirational so far and I think it will keep me glued to every chapter until the last page. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 2/17/2014

    " This story reaches for the tears. Seemed overly so. Comments made by characters reached over the top to me. Great crafting of subplots. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison Hammer | 2/8/2014

    " good book but not as "meaty" as the others...more of a "filler" book- kind of gave info necessary to move on to bigger issues. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa Howard | 1/25/2014

    " This is the first book of the second series to the Redemption Series. You really should read the first 5 to understand what is going on with the characters and to get to know them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie Krasuski | 1/15/2014

    " I had planned on finishing this book in six days but I ended up doing it in three... I could not help it because it was just that good. I am able to relate to all of the characters so well and the story gets me so involved that it is just mesmerizing. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Traci | 12/31/2013

    " I like this series but was dissappointed that you were really left hanging at the end of each book forcing me to get the next one right away to finish the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 2/28/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 1/10/2012

    " Despite being a little annoyed with the writing style (ever chapter ends with a dun dun dun sentence), I find myself getting sucked into the story and wanting to pick up the next in the series as soon as I finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/4/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalia | 8/23/2011

    " It was really good, I like how Katy decided that Dayne wasn't worth anything to her unless he was christian. I think it's cool that even though she really liked him, she wanted to help him figure it out, but gave him space. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fran | 6/10/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 1/20/2011

    " Again, I wanted to get closer to the characters. Though the accident does provide a look into some of them. I DID cry, and that is why this book got four stars. "
