Item description for A Time to Embrace by Karen Kingsbury...

Overview
Their whole life was a series of miracles. Can they really hope for one more? And as tragedy pulls their lives apart, can they somehow find that all-important time to embrace?

After twenty-one years, John and Abby Reynolds are back together and feeling like newlyweds. Together they are convinced they can handle the issues of their past, the questions from their children, and even the high-school politics that drain the joy from John's coaching career. But then disaster strikes...the type of tragedy John and Abby never expected.

The squeal of brakes and the crunch of metal changes everything. Suddenly devastation tears at the heart of their family, and the depth of their existence. In the process, their children falter in their faith and guilt colors everything about the future. Fumbling for forgiveness and hoping for a miracle, John and Abby must remember what is important and cling to that above all else.

Together, they're determined to move on with their lives. but is "together" enough for a future they never expected?

Reviews - What do customers think about Time To Embrace?

Another Kingsbury great  Jun 23, 2008
I am so glad that Kingsbury decided to continue the saga of the Reynolds family. Although I didn't enjoy this as much as A Time to Dance, I thought it was a great book. The one negative that I will say is that it was predictable. Overall it is another great by Kingsbury.
 
Uplifting and Inspiring  Sep 4, 2007
A Time to Embrace was a wonderful sequel to A Time to Dance. In this book Kingsbury shows us the importance of trusting in God through all of the seasons of life. A Time to Embrace stresses the concept that God's ways are not our ways. We need to trust Him no matter how devastating our situations are.

I found this book very real to life and inspiring. Although the average person doesn't often find themselves in such extreme circumstances as John and Abby in this book, individuals can relate to such situations in their own ways. I would recommend A Time to Embrace to anyone who might be doubting their faith in God or having difficulty understanding uncertain circumstances in their life. It will help uplift and refresh your spirits.
 
Typical outcomes  Jul 24, 2007
While I thought this was a good book, I felt that it was just another Kingsbury predictable story. There's always some grand tragedy in all of her books (I've read 90% of them), things always resolve themselves in a good way. A character is given a 1% chance of living and always does. I'm a huge believer in trusting in God and following his plan, but most things in her novels are wrapped up in pretty little packages.

I was also bothered by the times where she practically rewrites A Time to Dance since I already read it. I skipped over those parts (and there were too many of them to count). The plot lines are typical, someone is struck by tragedy, someone loses their faith, someone reconciles with someone else, and faith is gained again. It has happened in all of her novels that I've read so far. I, like most others, thought the Kade story line was irrelevant. No need to cram in every moral lesson in one story.

My husband said, "If it's so predictable, why read them? Haven't all of her stories been this way?" I'm the type that just can't stop reading a book and will push myself to get through it. I just read these because my mom bought them for me, and I didn't want to look ungrateful. I'm taking a break now!

The book is ok, but definetly not the best. Try the first couple of books on the Redemption series. No need to finish the series, though. It's just like all of the other books.
 
A Time to Embrace  Apr 2, 2007
This book is a classic Karen Kingsbury. It is a tale of life today and how God can overcome anything. It is very faith inspiring.
 
awesome  Jan 10, 2007
I am a huge fan of Karen Kingsbury. As with all of her books, I found this one a real heart warming story, strong on faith. I have read many, many of her books and loved them all.
