A Moment of Weakness by Karen Kingsbury

Had they found each other again after all these years, only to lose everything that matters most?

As children, Jade Conner and Tanner Eastman were best friends—until scandal drove them apart. Then, one golden summer, they find each other again.  Through endless days they share their hearts and souls and dreams of forever.  Then, in a moment of weakness, they make a decision that will tear them apart for nearly a decade.

In their own separate corners of the country, Jade and Tanner have become fighters for religious freedom. Now Jade’s unfaithful husband is determined to destroy her in a custody battle that will rock the nation and shake people’s understanding of faith and freedom. Could Jade lose her only child because of her faith? Only one man can help her in her darkest hour. And only one old woman knows the secret about that summer and the truth that can set them all free.

Karen Kingsbury's book, "A Moment of Weakness," stands as a great book that expresses truth about life's temptations and its affects on an individual's life. This book demonstrates how sin can alter an individual's joy and the goodness that God intends when God honoring decisions are not made. A Moment of Weakness, is a story of redemption and restored relationships that have felt the effect of sin, but later seek forgiveness. It teaches readers of God's character and how God is a master designer with the plans that He has for us. Karen Kingsbury develops her characters well by bringing out the real struggles that occur in the mind and not simply with their outward actions. It brings a realness that captivates an audience because it is so easy to relate to. A reader will feel like they have directly experienced the joys and sorrows that these characters experienced. This book is one that is not easily put down and one I highly recommend to anyone who desires to be encouraged, enlightened or simply entertained.

I read this book 7 years ago and to this day it still remains my favorite. I think it's very easy for many young adults to connect to the characters Jade and Tanner, especially because it's very easy for teenagers now days to give in to many moments of weakness. I know I did as well as many others. Karen Kingsbury teaches a lot about God's grace and forgiveness in this story. And not just between us and God, but our choices as young adults like Jade and Tanner and forgiveness with each other and those who hurt us. Forgiveness is a problem I think most people struggle with. Through this book and the bible I've been able to find peace and forgiveness, just like the characters. I recommend this book to anyone who struggles with the pressures and intensity of love and passion. It really teaches how a SINGLE moment can change your whole life forever.

Karen Kingsbury is wonderful again in this story about not following God¿s Plan. Everyone makes mistakes, but it¿s what you do with those mistakes that make the difference. This book I recommend to everyone who has ever felt like they weren¿t good enough. It warms the heart to read the end of Jade and Tanner¿s story. The beginning and middle can be painful but the end is beautiful. As with all Karen Kingsbury books, there were parts I read through tears.

One of my all-time favorite books. Also the book that made me Karen Kingsbury's #1 fan. If you're questioning abstinence, wondering about this country's religious freedom, and just plain ready for a FABULOUS story, look NO further than this book. I will NEVER forget it. And if you've never read Ms. Kingsbury before, get ready to spend money like never before. Because she's got a lot of books more addicting than drugs. (Not that I've tried drugs)

I can't say enough about any book written by Karen Kingsbury. If you have never read one, please pick one up. They are more than simply a story that grabs you in someway by the heart, but they are ones that last well beyond the final page you read. They are that life changing. They get you to not only connect with the characters on an emotional level but there is a depth there that simply goes beyond being a story in a book. It almost feels as if these were personal stories that Karen is sharing with her readers like you are a close personal friend. In the latest addition to her Forever Faithful Series, A Moment of Weakness is the second book to the series and takes place between Jade Conner and Tanner Eastman who grew up together and became the truest sense of best friends. Tanner forever vowed that despite his young age, he would grow up and marry Jade one day, something she argued would never happen. Like even the best of friends, life happened and simply one day Jade and her family moved away in hopes of finding her mother that left them behind. Jade believed that one day they would return and things would carry on like they always did, but that day never happened and Jade and her father never moved back. Fast forward a decade later and Jade is working as a nurse in a children's hospital that is being threatened with closure due to budget cuts within the county. Jade is the strongest voice among the community and when the case is slated to go before the board, Tanner Eastman is the intern presenting the case. He never imagined in a million years that he would find the one girl who he gave his heart to so many years ago. Yet even in his heart, for now they can't be together because Tanner's got political aspirations that involved finishing up law school and making his way to the White House with the support of his mother. The other is that Jade doesn't share the same faith that he does and for now, all he can offer her is the friendship they always had, until God places an obstacle so great in their path that will put their faith to the ultimate test. I received A Moment of Weakness by Karen Kingsbury compliments of Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest and personal evaluation. I absolutely loved this story of Tanner and Jade because like all of us life isn't perfect, in fact it can get downright messy but for the grace of God, He can restore and make all things new despite our choices in life. That is the truest sense of what it means to be a believer in Jesus is that redemption, forgiveness and second chances are available to all of us no matter what circumstances we have gone through. For me, this one will be a permanent fixture with my ongoing Karen Kingsbury collection in my home library with a 5 out of 5 stars, and one I can highly recommend to anyone who believes that their life is without hope for a second chance.

When they were children, Jade Connor and Tanner Eastman were the best of friends. They lost contact when a scandal involving Jade's mother all but forced her and her father to leave town. Years later Jade and Tanner find themselves face to face again and realize that all the feelings they'd had before are still there. After a wonderful summer spending time together and getting know each other again, one moment of weaknesses changes their lives forever. Ten years later when Jade's husband tries to ruin her life, due in large part to her desire to fight for religious freedom, Jade and Tanner find themselves together again. Faced with losing her only child, Jade must reveal secrets that she's held onto for more than ten years. When the truth comes out, Jade and Tanner find their lived changed again - this time for the better. Originally released in 2000, this second book in Kingsbury's Forever Faithful series is no less relevant today than it was then. The fights for religious freedom mentioned in the book seem as though they could have been ripped from today's news headlines. The way the story was written was intriguing and thought provoking, it took me a lot less time to read it than I initially thought it would. I can't wait to pick up book 3 in this series, Halfway to Forever, to see how to story lines develop. Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for this review. All thoughts are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
