Christian reading Jan 3, 2007
I buy these books, after reading them myself, for my great-granddaughters who are 11 and 13. They are actively involved in their church activities and love the books. The 13-year old is an avid reader and the 11-year old is quickly becoming one with Karen's books. Thanks to Karen Kingsberry for wholesome reading and the gift of believing in miracles!
Great book Dec 13, 2005
Okay I am not plugging another book, but if you read "Tuesdays at Morrie's" you will love this book. It is for anyone that lost hope in God, Love, or just life in genreal. Faith is what it all boils down to. I picked it up and read it in a day. I had no idea what it was about but after the first page I could not put it down. As you read you feel for the character and their pain/joy. I especially loved the part that she incoporates Sept. 11th into the story line. I have ever intention in reading more of Mr. Kingsbury books. I look forward to the eye opening experience.
An enjoyable Quick Read Apr 20, 2005
The nice thing about the Red Glove Series is that they still have an interesting plot and a testimony of faith, but they can easily be read in one sitting. This book was easy to get into. I didn't read the bookjacket before reading the book and so was surprised at how the story progressed. Megan is a bitter widow who overworks herself, since her job is what she loves. But Megan has an eight year old son who misses his father and how they used to play together. Megan reads about a mentorship program that matches grieving children with adults that are willing to offer the services to play with and support the children. She quickly signs up her son Jordan and waits for the response from the agency. Meanwhile Jordan is waiting for a letter he wrote to God to be answered, praying for a Daddy like the one his friend has. Both of their wishes seem to be granted when Jordan is matched with Casey, who owns a cafe in town and so has flexible hours. Casey becomes a significant part of Jordan's life, and when Megan takes the opportunity, a significant part of hers as well. It takes a lot for a heart as hardened as Megan's to love and believe again, but Kingsbury makes it work out. Though this book is a quick read, I wouldn't really call it a light one, but it's definitely worth reading.
WWJD Nov 20, 2004
I really liked this book when I first read thru it. however I dont think its coincidence that I purchased it at the same time as a "how to" book about the "hard cases" in marriage. this story is the fantasy of every woman trapped in a bad marriage: that her husband will drop dead and "mr right" will swoop in and give her all the love she never got. what would have been a REAL thumbs up for me would have been a story showing how God changed one of the partners with His love and it spread to the other and life was breathed into a dead marriage. perhaps without the juxtaposition with my other purchase it might not have occured to me what a very dangerous (spiritually speaking) fantasy this is to feed for someone in a situation such as Megans....but I felt very let down as this occured to me. yes, so often it is the unbelievable serendipity of lifes situations that often leads people to belive there must be a God (and I have heard of some true stories that were every bit as unbelievable coincidental as those in this series) but unfortunately the way the marital situations were treated ruined the faith building potential of the novel.
A Very Sweet Book Jul 7, 2004
This book was about Megan, a high powered lawyer who didn't believe in love due to a series of events in her life. Then there is her son Jordan, who prays for a new daddy and who wants her mother to believe in love again. Then enters Casey, who is matched with Jordan through a Healing Hearts program. Casey is struggling to overcome the death of his wife and baby.
This book was very short and to the point. But in such a short book, Karen Kingsbury was able to fully develop the characters, so that we saw why Megan didn't believe in love.
I loved the characters in this book, especially Casey. He is struggling with his grief, but he is able to help someone else out. I also loved the "Red Glove" theme in the book, about red being the color of giving. And I loved how Megan was eventually able to believe in love again.
I really enjoyed this short little book. I haven't read Gidean's Gift, but plan to get a hold of that book, too.
