Item description for Between Sundays by Karen Kingsbury...

Football season becomes a time of realization that life's most important victories are won off the field. A star running back with much to learn, a younger player with much to give, and a woman with a heart for underprivileged kids are thrown together into a time of self-discovery and a new awareness of the things that matter most.

Publishers Description
Aaron Hill has it all---athletic good looks and the many privileges of a star quarterback. His Sundays are spent playing NFL football in front of a televised audience of millions. But Aaron s about to receive an unexpected handoff, one that will give him a whole new view of his self-centered life. Derrick Anderson is a family man who volunteers his time with foster kids while sustaining a long career as a pro football player. But now he s looking for a miracle. He must act as team mentor while still striving for the one thing that matters most this season---keeping a promise he made years ago. Megan Gunn works two jobs and spends her spare time helping at the youth center. Much of what she does, she does for the one boy for whom she is everything---a foster child whose dying mother left him in Megan s care. Now she wants to adopt him, but one obstacle stands in the way. Her foster son, Cory, is convinced that 49ers quarterback Aaron Hill is his father. Two men and the game they love. A woman with a heart for the lonely and lost, and a boy who believes the impossible. Thrown together in a season of self-discovery, they re about to learn lessons in character and grace, love and sacrifice. Because in the end life isn t defined by what takes place on the first day of the week, but how we live it between Sundays."

Reviews - What do customers think about Between Sundays?

Great Read  May 4, 2010
Bought a lot of Karen Kingsbury 4 the wife she loves em all. Great Christian writer.
Such an important message. Well done.  Apr 18, 2010
Karen developed aspects of a life well lived through her characters. I am not going to address the story line as I
often see done. When I read a review I want to know why I should read it, not an outline of the story.
The characters Amy, Derrick, and Megan demonstrated lives of commitment to what they believed in, and who they
believed in, that told the story of what happens "Between Sundays". It made me think. Oh, and I can't forget Cory,
whose trust in what he believed, changed his life for ever.
I bought it on audio, and listened to it on vacation in the car. Entertaining and thought provoking.
Between Sundays  Mar 20, 2010
Very enjoyable reading and am a football fan, so that made it even better. I also came away with a better knowledge of foster care. The author showed us that what football players do "Between Sundays" is very important.
Between Sundays  Feb 27, 2010
I don't care what book I buy of Karen's I always have to have a kleenix nearby. She is a fancinating story teller. I find I am so into her stories, it is hard not to believe they are real. I think I have every book she has written. Such a Godly given inspiration to me and millions of other. May God continue to give her new stories to tell.
A Novel for All Ages, Especially NFL Fans  Jan 2, 2010
In Between Sunday's, Karen Kingsbury takes you into the world of the NFL, specifically the San Francisco 49ers. While the players are fictional, the stadiums and games are come across as accurate and genuine. The novel mainly focuses on three players. Derrick Anderson, an older, seasoned quarterback who comes to the 49ers to mentor and encourage the other players; Aaron Hill, a younger quarterback with several seasons under his belt, and Jay Ryder, a rookie punter and wannabe quarterback.

This is Derrick's last season and he wants desperately to win another championship ring to fulfill a promise he made. He already has two rings, but needs a third for a reason only he and his wife know. Derrick is a family man, deeply rooted in his faith, living his life by God's grace.

Aaron is an arrogant playboy, king of the hill, living only for the moment and the adoration of the fans and media, with no time for God. Aaron has a couple championship rings and thinks that winning this season would be great, but it's not something he is overly concerned about. After all, he has his whole life ahead of him to win Super Bowls, right?

Jay is young and a little shy, this being his first season in the NFL. He wants to fit in with the team and is awe struck by Derrick and Aaron. He has some faith, but is not completely committed.

San Francisco has a large contingent of foster kids. Megan Gunn volunteers at the Youth Center as well. She is a single foster mom to Cory. Amy, Cory's mother, had been a close friend to Megan before she died tragically. Cory is a big fan of the 49ers. Derrick is a very compassionate person and tries to reach out to the kids. In the off season, he hosts pizza parties at a Youth Center. Derrick gives away five game tickets each week at the pizza party. Cory wants desperately to win a ticket and attend a game because Cory has a secret - he believes he is the son of one of the 49er players. Megan, of course, doesn't believe him, attributing his belief to the fact that he so wants a father. She thinks this is just his fantasy and tries to discourage him, but Cory insists his mother told him and his mother did not lie.

Kingsbury takes you through the hopes, dreams, injuries, disappointments and trials of the coach and his players in the NFL. Will they make it to the Super Bowl, and if so, what are their chances of a win? The novel clearly points out that we are not defined by what we do on Sunday, but what we do Monday through Saturday. Between Sundays is a novel for all ages, and especially NFL and 49ers fans.

Note: In real life, Alex Smith, the current 49er quarterback founded the Alex Smith Foundation for foster children. His foundation provides provides support, funding, and a chance at a fuller life.
