Karen Kingsbury is a well-known Christian author. She and Nicholas Sparks have similar writing styles. Both authors know how to write loveable characters, interesting storylines, and can make you laugh and cry. They write about real life issues.
 Kingsbury writes of the real effects on a family when Tom and Alicia Ryan died from a drunk driving accident. It is heart-breaking to read this work of fiction, which is based on one of Kingsbury’s friend’s own experience. The very real battle of choosing to hate or forgive the drunk driver is expressed throughout the book.
Anyone who has experienced loss of any kind knows the struggle of trusting God during that time.
It was a little dated written in 1999, at one point mentioning tape players, but overall the storyline was good and easy to follow. I would recommend this book to Christians who would like to read good fiction. Waiting for Morning is a challenging book and the first in the Forever Faithful trilogy.
The theme of God being faithful is one that is very close to my heart. He has been my Rock in my own times of loss. The theme of forgiveness is also a hard pill to swallow, but Kingsbury tackles that issue in the book as well.

If you are interested in continuing the series, Book #2 is A Moment of Weakness and Book #3 is Halfway to Forever.

I reviewed this book for Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers Blogging for Books. I received this book for free in exchange for a review of the book.
