Learning, book two in The Bailey Flanigan series, picks up where Leaving ended. Bailey Flanigan and Cody Coleman are not only separated by physical distance, they are also faced with great emotional distance. Can distance truly make the heart grow fonder?

Bailey Flanigan is growing closer to her dream to be an actress and dancer in New York while Cody coaches a small high school football team…on and off the field. But neither feels complete without the chance to share their dreams with one other. Can distance truly make the heart grow fonder? Or will Cody learn to turn to others to share in his happiness? And when tragedy strikes? Who will be there to provide comfort in the face of loss? As Cody's past catches up with him, he must learn to reach out for help or risk withdrawing permanently inside himself. Both Bailey and Cody find themselves learning significant life lessons in this poignant love story, featuring members from Karen Kingsbury's popular Baxter family.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sara | 2/15/2014

    " I wanted to like these books, really I did. I like fluffy, happy stories every once in a while. However, in this book there were too many perfect, beautiful Christian people. I had a hard time believing that most of the characters could be real people. Maybe it got better as the book went on, I stopped about a third of the way through. The scene with Bailey and Brandon on the Empire state building made me want to vomit, and then I was done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Britni | 2/10/2014

    " There was something about this book, more so than in leaving that really touched me, and it had nothing to do with either of the romantic relationships in the book. Similar to remember the titans or Rudy, I was most intrigued by Cody and his football team and wanted to be at the sidelines of every game. That relationship alone made this a great book for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 2/2/2014

    " I always enjoy Karen Kingsbury books. I feel like I have grown up with the families and look forward to finding out what is happening next in their lives. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elena | 1/20/2014

    " Best book yet!!! There were so many parts I had to highlight to remember for later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 1/15/2014

    " Was better than the others in this series. I'm still ready for this drama to be over. Guess it's the sign of a good author that I continue to read, huh? ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura (Tampa BookWorm) | 1/14/2014

    " This one just didn;t grab me and hold me like all of the others :-( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronda | 1/14/2014

    " this is a great book, cannot wait for the next book in this series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Apryl Cowper | 1/12/2014

    " Good read. Love this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margie | 1/10/2014

    " The story has continued from the previous book. This one seemed to move somewhat faster. I would prefer that the series were shorter and the story line would move faster. I am still interested enough to see what is going to happen next to continue reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Deutsch | 12/22/2013

    " 2nd book....better than the first. Love the interesting twist of the two separate lives of Cody and Bailey. Interesting to consider some of the other main characters views of each of them - again, makes you think about the various impacts of your actions in everyday life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Ott | 12/22/2013

    " My favorite one in the Bailey series so far!! Can't wait until the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen Ann | 12/7/2013

    " As a fan of the Baxter family for a very long time, I was saddened to read this book. Kingsbury spent a lot of time exploring the faithful response to being gay. I found it difficult to read her thoughts. I will not be finishing this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pen | 12/2/2013

    " My favorite part of this book was Bailey's bible study and how Karen Kingsbury addressed the gay issue through Bailey's bible study. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christy | 10/13/2013

    " The Baxter and Bailey books are starting to feel a little predictable. It's like Karen Kingsbury has a cookie-cutter storyline she's working from and just keeps cranking out the books. Maybe it's simply that I want a more unique story to spend my time reading... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy Kautz | 6/1/2013

    " It's so obvious that Bailey and Cody are going to get back together in this series that I'm kind of just reading through quickly to see how it happens. It's kind of annoying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheryl Bednar | 5/21/2013

    " Karen Kingsbury is a great writer. The only thing I don't like is that she writes alot of series. Other than that she is one of my favorite authors "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh | 2/7/2013

    " Another great book. Loving the Bailey series so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Regina | 8/27/2012

    " This is the second book in the Bailey Flannigan series, and I liked it even more than the first. Of course, the plot is left wide open at the end, because there are still 2 more books in the series. Don't look for a resolution to the Cody/Brandon drama yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/30/2012

    " i feel so sad after this book.... why can't cody just use his brain? i really really want them to end up together, although her boyfriend is really sweet. but bailey can't get over cody and he can't get over her. i'm actually mad that this has 2 more books... mostly because they aren't out yet! arg! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 3/10/2012

    " Enjoyed the second book. Another easy read. Didn't agree with all of the "Christian" views presented in the book but a good read overall. Got to love a book that can make you cry. Waiting for the third book on reserve at the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittney | 3/8/2012

    " Karen Kingsbury has a way of making me feel as if I am watching this on TV. Her descriptions and events in the book come to life. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. Who is Bailey going to end up with???? "
