Editorial Reviews

With this book, the novel series that began with Sunrise comes full cycle. As the marriage of John Baxter and Elaine finally approaches, one of his family members slides towards a deep personal crisis. At this troubling crossroads, the Baxters must confront both old problems and new challenges.
Library Journal

The final title in the "Sunrise" series (after Sunrise, Summer, Someday) picks up with John Baxter about to sell the Baxter family home and remarry after the death of his beloved first wife. At the same time, Dayne and Katy Matthews have returned to Bloomington to raise a family and run a theater. Fans of the previous 13 Baxter titles will relish catching up with this beloved family and witness its patriarch build a new life in his sunset years. Although Kingsbury's stories tend to be populated with one-dimensional characters and awkward dialog, her novels are best sellers (e.g., the "Redemption," "Firstborn," and "September 11" series), and this title will be in demand. Recommended where Kingsbury is popular.

I just love Karen Kingsbury's books. I have read all the books up to this point. I enjoy reading about the Baxte If I had to choose who my favorite characters were, they would be Katy and Ashley. I admire both of them very much. And of cours, John. He is the backbone of the entire family. Thank you Karen, for writing such interesting books. I will continue reading about the Baxters. After I am through with them, I will be reading all of her books. I have just been reading books about 4 months now. The only problem is, once I start reading her book, I can't put it down.

After reading 13 books by karen kingsbury I have found her novels very uplifting. The story shows how prayer is an intergal part of the characters everyday lives. The first novel Redemption is the most riveting. The details of the character's lives is repetitive if you start with the first novel, still a great read!
