This touching novel reunites readers with the Baxter family and focuses on the only Baxter son, Luke. He is determined to leave his faith and his past behind and embrace a new, free-thinking future. But what he doesn’t realize is that his past holds a secret even he doesn’t know. When Luke finds out, his comfortable new life is turned upside down, and he must turn back to his roots.

This chapter in the Baxter family's lives involves Luke who has blamed God for the impact 9-11 had on his life and turns away from is faith and family. He has to struggle and fight before he is brought back. Another gripping book dealing with difficult life experiences. I had to read the next one immediately.

I loved this book that continues the story of the Baxter family. Luke the only Baxter son is the main
character in this book as he faces struggles with his faith and family following Sept. 11 and his girlfriend
Reagan's father's death and her rejection after they crossed the line and she ignored the last phone call
she would ever receive from her dad. Landon, Ashley's friend was in the right place at the right time to go
on an ambulance call to help a pregnant woman in distress only to discover that he knew the lady.
A few weeks later Ashley is in NYC to deliver some paintings to a gallery and finds that Landon is out with
another lady. She spends the weekend in mental anguish that Landon moved on from her only to finally
realize that he would not do that and she spends the rest of her time in NYC with him also getting to meet
the newest member of the Baxter family. Ashley receives some devastating news of her own which causes
her to confront Luke with news from his past which sets into motion his return to the ones he loves. I loved
reading book 3 of the redemption series and can't wait to see what happens to the siblings as they continue
their life journey in book 4.

This is another Karen Kingsbury novel that grabbed my attention from the first page and held it until the last. This is the third book in the "Redemption" Series. It continues the story of the Baxter family of Bloomington, Indiana, and stretches to include New York City. This one centers around Luke and his struggles with his faith in the wake of 9/ll and the heartbreak following the collapse of the Twin Towers. He struggles with the same question many have when bad things happen to good and innocent people..."Where is God during the midst of this tragedy?" Kingsbury deals with a heartbreaking time every American struggled with, but she does it through the lens of enlightening and heart healing Christian fiction. This series is a must read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This third book was incredible. The events that happened love tested, hearts broken and the longing for somehting more. Does not matter how far you think you are from God he is always there calling us back to him. It doesnt matter how many times we fall God loves with an unconditional love.Was this review helpful?

I Also Recommend:
In the wake of the attacks on America on 9/11, Luke Baxter's world was shaken. The day before the attacks, he and Reagan took their physical relationship too far, leaving both of them burned and feeling like they'd failed their faith and each other. Luke responds by withdrawing and turning away from everything he once loved, God and his family. The Baxters certainly feel like something is missing in the time that Luke is gone, especially his father, John. But Landon Blake discovers a secret that would take Luke back to a time when God was loving and good. All the while, Ashley Baxter receives word from Paris and a single blood test will change her life forever. Another book in the Redemption series but certainly gives more perspective on the different members of the Baxter clan. As usual, faith and hope are at the core of this easy but amazing read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
