Publishers Description A NEW BEGINNING: Hollywood actor Dayne Matthews and Katy Hart are married and living in Bloomington, Ind., where Dayne has found a solution to his on-camera love scenes--he wants Katy to star in his next film. Katy wins the part and is cast opposite her super-star husband. The story of a small town girl's dream come true is too much for the press to resist, and in an effort to appease them, the couple agrees to a 12-episode reality show. It seems like the perfect compromise but by the time they finish filming the movie, they feel cracks around the edges of their marriage. Now they face an uncertain future, and possibly the end of everything that truly matters to them. AN UNFORGETTABLE SUMMER: The Baxter family learns that Ashley and Kari are both pregnant, but an ultrasound reveals that something is wrong with one of the babies. As the summer progresses, the sisters pray for a miracle while trying to face the unthinkable. It's in this trying season that they must all learn the lesson God has been trying to teach them--He is still in control, and He will be with them regardless of the outcome. AN EMOTIONAL FAREWELL: The Flanigans continue to draw closer to their only daughter, yet Bailey struggles to find her way amidst the turmoil of adolescence. She has always made good decisions, but she wants to experience more of life. Her friendship with Cody Coleman--the young border staying with the Flanigans--continues to blossom in this summer after his graduation. But when Cody decides to enlist in the Army, he'll have to say goodbye to the family he's come to love and the girl he'll never forget.

Summer (Sunrise Series)-Baxter 3, Book 2 Sep 18, 2009
This book is very touching. It shows the power of God in the lives of His people. I am very impressed with the depthness of this author. After I complete these series, I plan to try some of her other series. I'm sure that I won't be disappointed with them.
Summer is funner Oct 12, 2008
This is a great addition to the wonderful Christian book series about Baxter and his life. Gave this to my wife who loves these series and has read just about all of Karen Kingsbury's books.
Karen is back in fine form! Jul 3, 2008
As a reader of several of Ms. Kingsbury's books and a huge fan of the Redemption series, I have to admit that the Fame books left me more than a little disappointed. By the start of the Sunrise series I had begun to wonder if the writer would ever return to her former "glory". But, thank God, with this book she has done it. With Summer she has managed keep the reader riveted without resorting to overly fantastical plot twists, and has brought us a touching, sometimes heartrending and ultimately heartwarming story of struggle, loss, acceptance and God's unchanging love in the midst of it all. Once again I feel as though I want to journey with the Baxter family as they navigate the road of life. Well done Karen Kingsbury! I look forward to reading the next installment...
Awesome book! Jun 17, 2008
Another great book by Karen Kingsbury! I am going to hate it when the Baxters are no longer around!
Life is Not Always Easy May 9, 2008
I appreciated this book because it deals with the fact that God does not always answer our prayers the way we would like for Him to, BUT He always is there in the midst of our pain and hurting. Karen Kingsbury is my favorite author of all time because she confronts issues that many of us face--divorce, death, unwed pregnancy, adoption...but shows the compassion, love, and forgiveness of God and shows that it is also possible for us to lavish the same attributes on others.
