    " read it twice. liked it better the first time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan Slocum | 2/9/2014

    " It's okay to question God but what you do afterward defines you. I felt this was a strong way of showing the struggles one faces in the aftermath of a tragedy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalia | 2/3/2014

    " I love how it was the story of Joshua in the bible. We had just been studying it for S.S. when I started reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hyacinth | 1/29/2014

    " My word, I don't know how many times I cried while reading this book! This book struck many different cords in me. This modern day account of the Jericho experience was absolutely moving. The adoption of Rosa, the reunion of Jordan and Heidi...everything was so moving. It made me think about how far I am willing to go for the cause of Christ. Being an adoptive parent, this story just made my heart melt. I read many of the reviews prior to reading this book and for those that had a somewhat negative review...well, to each his own but this book is a 5 star in my opinion...to God be the glory Karen. I don't know how you do it again and again but I am glad God gives you the grace to do it... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katrina | 1/21/2014

    " The end of this book almost made me cry, but in a good way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Celeste | 1/15/2014

    " One of those quick, easy reads with a very Christian theme. It was OK. I wanted something light this month. I'm not very thrilled with the writing style of this author. She comes highly recommended by some friends, but she is really not that great of a writer as far as depth is concerned. It is a tear-jerker though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 1/6/2014

    " I learned that we need to stand up for what we believe,even if others don't support us, because that's what God expects. He will help us get through the tough times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Francine | 12/27/2013

    " This book was too predictable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 11/22/2013

    " This is probably one of my less favorite books of Karen Kingsbury. It is still a good book, just not one of the best ones she's written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 10/27/2013

    " The allegory was kind of heavy handed at times. Moses, Joshua, Jordan, Jericho and Faith? Jordan lost Faith when his mother died? Surprisingly, it worked in the end, and I really enjoyed this novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 10/17/2013

    " Light, enjoyable reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 9/28/2013

    " I liked this book. It was a different plot and story. We could all learn a lesson from this guy who has held so much pain that has turned to anger in his life. The story had me turning every page so there was plenty of excitement for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianna | 9/25/2013

    " I love the law what can I say "

    " It's been a while since I've read a Karen Kingsbury book and this one was just as hard to put down as the others! It's over 350 pages but I read it in less than two days. Very good despite the predictability. Have a box of tissues handy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 1/22/2013

    " This is probably one of my favorite books. It delves into how today's society either accepts/rejects Jesus Christ and Christianity. Its a fight to the end. It is beautifully written. I had a hard time putting it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina Long | 7/13/2011

    " It was slow starting but I eventually got into it. The story itself was so so for me, but I liked the relationship aspect between the two main characters. Not my favorite from this author, but an ok read. "
