    I love these books, I simply can't get enough of Karen Kingsbury. Doubt has a way of creeping into dark times, many times we all have doubts when things don't always go our way. Sometimes we wonder why that is but I believe it is the enemy. Luke, and Mr. Baxter have been through this and it was encouraging to see that I wasn't the only one.

My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance; and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing. Philippians 4:4-6 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

    Book #4 in the series focuses mainly on the oldest child, Brooke and her family. The other sibling's story lines continue side by side. I felt as though some plot lines concluded a bit quickly, while some others are being drawn out for quite a while. On the whole, I have enjoyed this series. A regular family facing what could be devatating problems and trials, and learning to rely on their faith to pull them through.

It says he'll stay beside us while we walk through it...You have to walk through it to get past it." This quote along with Philippians 4:4, "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!" pretty much sum up the focus of book 4 of the series.

    I'm really enjoying this series and becoming quit vested in the Baxter family. I do need to take a break from these books from time to time though. This family goes through so much, it is just hard to absorb at times. I love the way they lean on Christ during each crisis and I love the bonds each member has with the others. The family dynamics are very believable.

    I'm having a love/hate relationship with this series. I've decided it's kind of like a soap opera. I can't help caring about the characters and wondering what's going to happen next. It's not wonderful writing, it's sometimes downright cheesy, and I even skim read a page here and there, but yet I cried my eyes out when the precious little three-year-old was found at the bottom of the pool and the battle for her life began. It's escapist fiction, and I'll be reading the last book in the series to I'm having a love/hate relationship with this series. I've decided it's kind of like a soap opera.

    With each book I read in the series, I get more and more hooked. Even though I know it's fiction, there's something refreshing and uplifting about reading about love and having God in the middle of it. I love the messages that these books give you.

    This novel focuses on Haley’s accident and her parent’s reactions as they cope with the aftermath. Peter and Brooke separate, and Peter’s choices are also life threatening. In this installment, not only does God talk to Peter, so does Satan. But goodness triumphs over evil, and the extended Baxter family rallies to offer support. The most interesting characters are still the patients in the Alzheimer’s ward. This soap opera concludes in the next installment.

    Love A couple should celebrate their love for each other everyday! that is what I learned in this book, because life has its up and down and it's better to go through it with the other half than by ourselves.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Karen Kingsbury is an amazing writer. I don't know which I enjoyed better, the moments where I shed tears from absolutely connecting with the story or the moments of joy from the written words of hope. I didn't just read it, I learned from it and I loved every moment of it.

    An easy read but not realistic enough in my opinion. Sadly things don't always turn out as well as these novels!

When t This book primarily focused on Brooke and Peter and their two girls, Maddie and Hayley. Brooke and Peter’s marriage isn’t doing too well. Ever since Peter decided on his own to take Maddie to a specialist due to her recurring fevers, Brooke has felt like they rarely talk and are not happy. They take the girls to a swim party and unfortunately, Brooke gets called to the hospital. Peter is watching a baseball game with his friend, and when Brooke leaves, he is not really watching his girls. When the girls ask him if they could take their life jackets off so they can sit down and eat, he helps them take them off. Hayley at some point decides to go back in the pool, and by the time Maddie realizes she’s missing and gets her father, it’s too late. Hayley is at the bottom of the pool, where Peter jumps in, brings her back up, and does everything he can before the ambulance comes. Brooke gets to the party just in time to ride with Hayley to the hospital in the ambulance. The entire Baxter family comes together, of course. John Baxter, knowing how bad the prognosis is, even prays for God to bring Hayley home. But little by little, Hayley slowly comes back, and by the end of the book she is able to roll toward her mother when called. She has regained her sight, smiles, and laughs. Peter West, unfortunately, blames himself for what happened to Hayley. He starts taking pain pills and quickly gets addicted. With God’s help, he narrowly escapes death and gets treatment. He and Brooke get the counseling they need, and he moves back in to their home. Ryan Taylor is also a big part of helping Peter get better. Ashley and Landon are still together, and hopefully Ashley will learn to accept her health diagnosis and live life to the fullest with Landon. After Irvel from the Sunset Home passes on, and Landon is in a warehouse fire that takes the lives of other firefighters, they both realize life is short, and no matter if you have a day or many years with the one you love it’s all that matters. Landon will be moving back to Bloomington, working at their fire station, and spending as much time as he can with Ashley and Cole. Luke and Reagan get married in New York City where they will live. The Baxter family gets there a week before the Christmas Eve ceremony to celebrate and see the sights. Kari, Ryan, and Jessie are a happy family living in Bloomington. Ryan is happy coaching the high school football team. Erin and Sam are living in Texas. They are able to attend Luke and Reagan’s wedding. They are going to adopt a baby that they found through their church. The mother was putting the baby up for adoption. All the events, good and bad, are taking a toll on Elizabeth Baxter. But she still remains happy, the loving mother and grandmother...babysitter at a moment’s notice!

    The fourth book of Karen Kingsbury’s series “Redemption” was just as moving as the preceding books. Brooke Baxter West and Peter West experience one of the most terrifying things for parents - losing your child.

The guilt from the situation suffocates both parents causing them to do things they both know is wrong. For Brooke, she pulls away from everything and everyone.

Brooke and Peter’s youngest daughter, Hayley, went for a birthday party that ended up in her fighting for her life. The guilt from the situation suffocates both parents causing them to do things they both know is wrong. For Brooke, she pulls away from everything and everyone. Whereas Peter deals with his guilt in illegal ways. Brooke and Peter’s relationship and daughter is on the line. Though everyone is glum due to Hayley’s situation, Ashley Baxter finally finds a reason to celebrate - Landon. Karen Kingsbury once again delivers an outstanding and captivating story. Not only do the characters go through emotional turmoils, but so does the reader. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to continue the Baxter journey or anyone looking to see the truth of what happens in life, no sugarcoating.

    When Hayley Baxter nearly drowns in a pool, Peter Baxter blames himself, because he wasn't watching her. He leaves his family behind, thinking they would be better off without him. We have the wedding of Luke and Reagan. I found the wedding scenes to be very beautiful. Another storyline we have is Ashley and Landon. Because she has HIV, Ashley feels that Landon shouldn't be with her because she's sick. Reagan tries to help her see that they can be together, but Ashley keeps denying it.

    Rejoice is my least favorite book in the Redemption series. The main story line is about Brooke and Peter and how they deal with the near drowning of their daughter. It is very dragged out and causes the book to be slow and a little boring. Both Brooke and Peter's actions and reactions frustrated me, and I really disliked Peter as a character. At times I felt like I was forcing myself to keep reading just to get to the next book in the series. The only thing that redeemed this one from 2 stars t Rejoice is my least favorite book in the Redemption series.

    I am a big fan of Karen Kingsley. I found book #4 of The a Redemption series to be my favorite. All the trials the various people in their family faced with faith was inspiring. I sorta got caught up with the characters. I was going to read something different next,but now I want to read Reunion book #5. I’m glad Karen writes a lot of books. That makes me happy. 😊

    So my least favorite of the series. Story seemed a little slow for me. The family endures another tragedy yet rejoices with other members of the family. I plow on to book #5 which I started reading before I had time to review and I am liking it better than this one. So far I highly recommend reading the entire entire series.

    Great writer in terms of characterization, dialogue, mood, etc except for the tendency to throw in events just for melodramatic effect. This series has so much that other than books #2 & #5, I'm not planning on rereading any. It's like every possible bad thing has to happen to this one family. Also with the jumping around between different characters, the main plot line suffered. You didn't really get a chance to feel about what was happening before you jumped somewhere else.

    Because the subject of trial (trying not to give away) was a worst nightmare, it was hard for me to keep listening without getting emotional. But fantastic book and nice to see a real life ending instead of what sometimes happens in christian books

    While a relatively new Kingsbury fan; I have to agree with others when they say some plot lines are finishing in a hurry while others are drawn out. Either way the books are well written and the family is facing obstacles that any other family can face.

    Didn't know it was part a series so therefore some characters were confusing in the storyline. Wasn't the best book, very religious. It was Ok. Don't know if I'm interested in the rest of this series.
