excellent Nov 4, 2008
The book came on time and i love Karen's books and this is just as good as the rest
Redemption Book 1 Oct 12, 2008
If you like audio books, this is a great addition to the wonderful Christian book series of Redemption about Baxter. My wife and I tried this out because she raved so much to me that I thot we could listen while traveling. BUT, with a single person reading it the characters are not defined enough and so it gets confusing to me. My wife had a hard time following this audio presentation as well. Guess we will just stay with the books which are great!
Hard to leave Sep 9, 2008
The beginning of the book and the subject of betrayal, could have been very depressing but I really wanted to know what the title had reference to. Whether this man could have been forgiven and the turnaround. I didn't see how so it kept me involved. I loved all the good references to family,their times together and their loyalty to their daughter and sister. Very surprising ending. I think it was very well written.
Absolutely spellbinding! Aug 20, 2008
This is one of the most intriguing books I have read in recent years. I was attracted to this series because I know of Gary Smalley's work and found it interesting that he would combine real-life counseling and fictional characters. Frankly, I think it was a genius idea because we are having more people read and discover helps for their own lives because they are willing to read fiction when they wouldn't read other books. I love the way that the main characters seek God's leadership before making any decisions and follow his will. God's way is the best way is driven home by having those who willfully disobey what they know God's will to be and suffer the consequences. I simply could not wait even one night to get the following book when I was through with one. Therefore, I went and bought all 13 available books in the series so I would never have to wait.
disappointing Jun 25, 2008
I am very disappointed with the book. I agree with the original critic - it reads more like a self-help book than a literary novel. The adultery, alcohol described in the book seem very unrealistic and organized to create certain points that the author wants to get across to the reader. I would find it hard to believe if this author has any real understanding of the circumstances that they try to describe in the book.
