    An Amazing Delivery

    Forever- Karen Kingsbury has made me fall in love with the Baxter Family, including Dayne Matthews. After the Redemption Series the Firstborn Series delivered on all of the promises she made in the past series. After some major twists and turns-the biggest one a major part of Forever-she gave an amazing ending to the second series based on this family. With tears, laughter, anger, and all the other emotions that come along with reading a good book, Karen Kingsbury may be one of the best Christian Fiction writers out there.

    Good....

    I find all of her books good. Only thing I don't like is that she keeps continuing on so she can get a new book in the series. You have to wait until the last book for things to conclude.

    GREAT CONCLUSION

    'Forever' is the fifth and final novel in the 'First Born Series,' and it was wonderful. You don't necessarily have to read Karen Kingsbury's series' in the proper order -- but just read them.

    Karen Kingsbury books - AMAZING!

    I have read this whole series so far and a lot of other Karen Kingsbury books. They are amazing! You don't want to put them down. Each chapter makes you want to keep reading to find out what is going to happen. I feel like family with the Baxter's because I know them so well.

    It is a good conclusion to the series although leaves a lot left for other series. There is a lot of relationship healing and love displayed. I love when the town pulls together.

    It moves slowly in some places but includes the emotional allure that all of her other books have. The struggles are real although I do not always agree with they way they are handled especially the faith without works theme.

    I am inspired by reading them.

    High Recommended

    I am so caught up with Karen Kingsbury series. I am telling all my friends about it.

    From the first book you get reeled in to the Baxter's Family and you feel what they are going through. In Forever, you think it is finally going to be a happy ending, but the twist in it takes you to the Sunrise series and I is wonderful.

    Highly Recommend

    Karen Kingsbury's series on the Baxter Family and friends are the best books I've read in a long time. I so enjoyed reading them and was sad to have reached the end. Start with the "R" (RedemptionP series, then the "F" series and the "S". Very enjoyable reads.

    Another great book

    Wow this whole series is great. I don't want to leave the Baxter family--they are like family. I have learned so much. I have started to listen to mine inner self to hear God--it really works. It's as if he's with me at times. Karen is a great writer. I just purchased the next series--Sunrise. I don't have enough time to eat and sleep now--the books have consumed my life.

    inspiring conclusion to a strong saga

    In Bloomington, Indiana, Katy Hart and renowned actor Dayne Matthews plan for their wedding and his subsequent move from Hollywood to the Midwest. Though he is filming a movie, he flies to Bloomington on weekends to see Katy. After sharing breakfast with his costar Randy Wells they leave in separate cars, but the Paparazzi chase them causing a ricochet effect that leads to Dayne severely hurt in a life and death coma. --- Katy flies to his side in California while the Baxters pray for a miracle that their oldest recover as he has just been returned to them. That is all the Baxters except Luke who as a legal assistant in New York detests the newly found and famous older brother as he has believes he has lost his standing with his siblings and his widower father. --- Though the Luke subplot seems off in spite of his resentment ringing true, Karen Kingsbury fifth Baxter Firstborn family drama is a wonderful contemporary tale. The cast is strong as the family embraces the Lord praying for a miracle. Though newcomers need to read the previous novels (see FAME, FORGIVEN, FOUND and FAMILY) to fully understand the interrelation dynamics, FOREVER is an inspiring conclusion to a strong saga. --- Harriet Klausner
