I absolutely love Karen Kingsbury, so when I got the opportunity to review a book of hers, Waiting for Morning, I jumped at the chance! As usual, Kingsbury absolutely did not disappoint.
This is the story of Hannah Ryan, a wife and mother whose life takes a sudden, tragic turn when her family is involved in an accident thanks to a drunk driver. Hannah is incredibly angry at God for allowing the accident to happen, and that anger blinds her to the point that she completely walks away from her faith. She puts all her available time and energy into hating the driver of the car that hit her family, and feels as though the only peace she'll ever have will come after he is dead or in prison.
I couldn't personally relate to the characters because I've never had anything like this happen to me, but it is so easy to become attached to these characters. Kingsbury has a way with words - she isn't afraid to have her characters be real and go through bumps in their faith like many people do. This is an easy read and it will definitely suck you in.
Now that I see it's a series I can't wait to read the other two books!
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing
