The Story Evoked Emotions Aug 9, 2008
Jack and Molly Campbell are the adoptive parents of four-year-old Joey. They are a family that enjoys life, and life gets even better for Molly when her sister/best friend, Beth, moves to town with her husband and four children. But things take a turn for the worse for the Campbells when, Wendy and Rip Porter, Joey's biological parents, decide they want their son back. Most of the chapters in this book are lengthy; sometimes including way more information that I thought was necessary. However, the story did evoke emotions; especially when Joey had to visit his biological parents. I felt so bad for the child, but, just like Joey, I was also comforted by the truth that God was with him.
One of her best... Jul 9, 2008
I love Kingsbury. I am never disappointed by her work. This is a touching, captivating story of a family faced with crisis. Jack and Molly Campbell adopted their son Joey when he was just an infant. Four years later they learn that Joey's birth father has gotten out of jail and never knew about his son. So now he wants him back. The emotions that the Campbell's face are very real. I think I would have reacted in the same way. The true message of this story is of the miracles God bestows on us. Even when we lose trust and take matters into our own hands, God always remains faithful. I would highly recommend this book.
This was bad! Jun 22, 2008
I don't mind sweetness and light. I don't don't mind religious characters. But I couldn't get through the first chapter. The decriptions of this couple and child were so sicky sweet and phoney even I couldn't stand it. Pass on this.
Great idea Feb 7, 2008
The book was so interesting to me and I enjoyed the story line. I really was troubled by the sister relationship and the sister's need to be so holy and turn her sister in. I really think this book could have been a 5 star if it wasn't so preachy and stuck more to the story line.
Great fiction but can take with you to the real world Dec 16, 2007
A friend of mine recently read this book and loved it so much that she ordered one for me. Within the first few pages I was drawn into the story, that I couldn't put the book down and finished it in 1 day! Karen Kingsbury captured the essence of each character and I felt as though I was present during each scene. This book brings up that one main topic that I stuggle with from time to time "why can't I see God's plan, and has he foresaken me?" Thank you Karen for sharing.
