- An Excellent Read! by Kate on 8/17/2015
After losing her dear husband and 15 year-old daughter at the hand of a drunk driver, Hannah Ryan must struggle through more than just the trial in order to get her life back; a fact that veteran writer Karen Kingsbury did not miss when writing her latest novel.
As a first time reader of Mrs. Kingsbury, I cannot help but marvel at her ability to draw you into a story from every angle and her determination to keep her topic relevant to the lives of God’s people. After all, bad things happen to good people, and Christians - as well meaning as we are - can be just as broken as the rest of the world.
Waiting for Morning follows an angry and broken hearted Hannah as she struggles to find peace in the wake of tragedy. Mrs. Kingsbury manages to do this in a way that leaves your heart aching not just for Hannah and her remaining daughter Jenny, but also for Brian, the drunkard whose actions caused so much heartache.
You see, as Hannah begins to doubt her faith in Jesus, Brian begins to believe. Mrs. Kingsbury’s use of multiple perspectives gives the reader a chance to watch as the pair struggle to accept their new realities and continue on. This gives the audience a clear view of why we must forgive both ourselves and others; all the while spreading a message of hope and reminding us that there is no sin too great for our blessed Redeemer.
