A desperate situation....
Pressures of the celebrity lifestyle weigh heavily on Dayne and Katy Matthews as they take on separate movie projects. Tabloid rumors talk of trouble and unfaithfulness between the two. And then a dramatic cover photo threatens to destroy everything they've worked to build together. Only Dayne knows the truth about the photo, truth that would help Katy believe him. But the truth will also cause devastating damage to the people he loves so dearly - the Baxter family. Dayne must weigh his decision carefully, but at what price?

A heartbreaking loss....
The Flanigan family recognizes the deep loss of the Christian Kids Theater, and they begin to pray for a miracle - that even without the theater, somehow CKT will go on. Bailey and Connor see their CKT friends fitting in with the wrong crowd and making decisions that will harm them.

A season of hope....
John Baxter takes the next step in his relationship with Elaine, giving him a season to contemplate selling the Baxter house - and losing a lifetime of memories. As the rest of the family considers the future, they must pull together like never before. Only their undying love for each other can help them overcome today's trials for a life they know is possible...someday. Download and start listening now!

    " Pretty good book, goes in with a series, and once again leaves you wanting to read the next book of the series. Always love Karen Kingbury books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 2/7/2014

    " Love this series - characters are so real. This series deals with a large family and everyday issues and how the family copes. Only one more in the Baxter family series : ( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 1/28/2014

    " I didn't realize when I picked this up at the library today that it was part of a series. Hopefully, I'll like it and can pick up the others by this author. I usually don't like books in a series but this sounds like a good one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 1/28/2014

    " i was a third of the way through when I realized it was #3 in a series. I'm going to go back and read the others. It was a quick, love story with a religious/Christian side to it. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 1/24/2014

    " Predictable. Easy, "feel-good" type of book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lola4 | 1/22/2014

    " This book was a let-down after Summer--I thought the characters had grown some, but in this one they regress again. I have a great deal of ambivalence about Karen Kingsbury books. Generally I find the stories soap-operaish, juvenile, and often contrived and unrealistic. Often I find the characters immature and get disgusted when 30-ish Christians respond emotionally and hurtfully to a contrived difficulty with the maturity of a 13-year old. (Yes, I am extremely left-brained.) They do way too much emotional reacting and not enough pro-active thinking--most Christians in my life are way more mature than that. However, when the characters finally do get around to thinking, forgiving, seeking answers in prayer, Scripture, and counseling, I suddenly love Karen Kingsbury and her biblical insights--they just take way too long to get there! I would highly recommend her stories and writing style to adolescents and young adults, but for someone who's been around the block a few times, the characters' often silly immaturity can get very annoying. The Bible lessons she works into the solutions to her problems are so right-on and really touch me where I live. So, hate her soap-opera. dragged-out writing/love her theology. Just for the Bible insights, I will probably continue to read her books, even if I have to skip over parts where 30-year-olds are reacting like adolescents. I will have to read every Karen Kingsbury book twice--the first time just to know what idiotic parts I can skip over and what deep parts to re-read for the Bible and life lessons. "

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

    " Today I read the second to last book in Karen Kinsbury's 14 book series about the Baxter family. The storylines in Someday are a great reminder that everything happens for a reason; even the most tragic and heart-wrenching events in our lives can bring about miracles. It's also a reminder that even when God doesn't seem to answer our prayers the way that we ask or want Him to, He is listening and will answer them in the way that is best for us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/20/2014

    " I think I'm getting tired of reading about the papparzzi. the fears about the babies' health was very believable. Karen Kingsbury writes such believable Christian stories! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/20/2014

    " Dayne and Katy survive a misunderstanding. An affair that occurs seems disjointed from rest of the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 1/10/2014

    " This was definitely my favorite of the Sunrise series. I love all her books, but I REALLY loved this one. "

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

    " this book touched me on a spiritual level and physical its beauty is contained in its words "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandi | 12/22/2013

    " This is the second to last book in this series - and I can't get enough of the Baxter family - they feel like part of my own family! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 11/30/2013

    " Gave this 4 stars because I love this family - feel like I have a personal relationship with all the characters by now! So many life lessons in this entire series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Stokke | 11/26/2013

    " The third book in the Sunrise Series. These are my beach/pool reads. Nice, quick reads. While there are great truths woven into all of Kingsbury's books, like any serial writer there is a certain predictability as the stories unfold. "

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

    " This is the penultimate volume in a contemporary series about a family. I think there are 14 or 15 books, all told. Karen Kingsbury is a great writer. As the stars indicate, I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 7/2/2013

    " Love this series. Quick easy inspirational reads. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janice | 6/13/2013

    " Reconciliation, new beginning, and love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 9/30/2012

    " I think I'm getting bored with these books. I was most interested in Katy and Dayne's relationship and was definitely rooting for them. I guess I just felt that the issues the couples were experiencing got cleaned up too conveniently. I didn't like how Bailey was barely visible in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corrie | 9/28/2012

    " Another great book from Karen Kingsbury! I can't wait for the next one to come out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison Hammer | 8/16/2012

    " another good read in the Baxter family series, and yes-still a bit corny. This book, more so that the others, felt a bit disjointed-lots of different scenes taking place and not adequate transition from one to the other. Looking forward to reading the last book in this 14 book series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Shanks | 8/13/2012

    " Each book continues from the last and keeps the story alive. I don't want to read the last book, I will be sad when it finishes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan Slocum | 8/11/2012

    " I am loving me some Bailey. Dwayne who? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 7/4/2012

    " Of course I loved it. I just feel like every book I read by her has such a strong message in it, and really makes you think about God's perfect plan for things. I loved the ending of this book so much, and i can't wait to read the last book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace | 3/25/2012

    " A great book, it made me think about the important things in life! A true show of how God helps you through the hard times in life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 1/17/2012

    " Karen Kingsbury never disappoints me. The ending was a relief, but the again, things always work out for the Baxters. Can't wait to read the next (and sadly the final) book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 11/11/2011

    " I love EVERYTHING this lady writes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debby | 8/29/2011

    " The continuing saga of the Baxter family. An enjoyable, easy read. I may have to go back and read all of the different books leading up to the final four. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 8/24/2011

    " This was the final book in the Baxtar Family Drama series... to be honest I am so sad that it is the final book. I really grew to love these characters in these books. I really was worried about how all the plots were going to end. But I must say I was very happy in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 7/8/2011

    " Another whirlwind of emotion this story was very sad and bittersweet knowing that the series is coming to a close! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cyndy | 7/7/2011

    " I love all of Karens books. I have enjoyed the sunrise series and can't stand the thought there may be an end to the Baxter saga "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cyndy | 5/18/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Casey | 3/29/2010

    " I've not read a Christian fiction for a little while, and this book was somewhat of a let down. It was nice to hear all the positive thoughts and verses on the way back from an interview, but the ending was so cliche. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debby | 12/19/2009

    " The continuing saga of the Baxter family. An enjoyable, easy read. I may have to go back and read all of the different books leading up to the final four. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 9/29/2009

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Olean Public Library | 9/1/2009

    " A very satisfying 3rd installment in the SUNRISE series with all the predictable Karen hallmarks - love of God, love of family, strong marriages, weak marriages repaired thru the love and God and children!!! Not to mention, John Baxter is going to marry Elaine! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Traci | 7/14/2009

    " I still really like this series and the whole Baxter family. This one and the one before it make me see celebrity in a whole new light. Definitely not a lifestyle I crave. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 6/20/2009

    " Of course I loved it. I just feel like every book I read by her has such a strong message in it, and really makes you think about God's perfect plan for things. I loved the ending of this book so much, and i can't wait to read the last book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 3/30/2009

    " Christian novel about the struggles of a couple whio are actors and how they are able to keep their priorities straight in a career that has a different morality system "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendi | 3/6/2009

    " Dayne and Katy drove me a little crazy in this one. Although their actions were realistic, I wanted to reach through the book and shake them. Still a very good read though. "
