    I'm reading Someday (Sunrise Series-Baxter 3, Book 3). This is a series that is best read in order and focuses on the Baxter family. There are 3 sets of books about the Baxters. The first set is called the Redemption Series. Karen Kingsbury co-wrote it with Gary Smalley. The next set is the Firstborn Series, and Karen wrote these on her own. Then, she wrote the Sunrise Series. The book I'm reading now is the 3rd book in the Sunrise Series. It's unusual to have so many books about the same family I'm reading Someday (Sunrise Series-Baxter 3, Book 3). This is a series that is best read in order and focuses on the Baxter family. There are 3 sets of books about the Baxters. The first set is called the Redemption Series. Karen Kingsbury co-wrote it with Gary Smalley. The next set is the Firstborn Series, and Karen wrote these on her own. Then, she wrote the Sunrise Series. The book I'm reading now is the 3rd book in the Sunrise Series. It's unusual to have so many books about the same family (14 books). I find this family is easy to love, and I feel compelled to read to the last book to find out what happens to them. Some of the story lines throughout the series took a little while to grow on me especially in the Firstborn Series. The story line with Dayne and Katy is the only one that seems to drag at times. I think Karen is an extremely talented writer. When I worked at the library, we couldn't keep her books on the shelf. This is one of the few authors that writes books that make me cry. Her stories are so realistic that it's easy to transport yourself to her world. All the books in this series are hard to put down after you start reading. Karen Kingsbury does something unique. She raises funds for charity by including characters in her book based on real people. The winner of the bid at the charity gives Karen the name and details about a person they want to honor. She creates a character in her book to honor the person. In Someday (Sunrise Series-Baxter 3, Book 3), Karen creates 3 characters based on the life of three people. To read more about it go to Karen's website and click on the 'Forever in Fiction and Karen's Trademark' link. The current book, Someday (Sunrise Series-Baxter 3, Book 3), follows Ashley, John, Brooke, Luke, Katy, and Dayne. I am enjoying it so far. I can't give too many details as I don't want to spoil it for those of you who haven't read it yet and possibly not read any of this series. Usually when a book has too many story lines in one book, I don't like it. It doesn't bother me in this book, probably partially because I know the characters from the other books and partially because of Karen's gifted writing. I like the fact that Ashley takes the lead in keeping the family connected. She has a big heart and a strong faith in God. She has her flaws, but she cares deeply about her family. Ashley is my favorite character in the whole series.

    The Baxter family is a large close knit family. Like so many, they have their troubles and heartaches. However, their faith in God helps each of them to heal and return to their families. Ashley, who just lost her newborn baby girl seems to be the bond that holds them to each other and their faith. Since this is my first Karen Kingsbury novel. I am sure I will be reading more.

    Dayne and Katy drove me a little crazy in this one. Although their actions were realistic, I wanted to reach through the book and shake them. Still a very good read though.

Now, they're going to be separated from each other for ten weeks, and rumors of infidelity are swirling as the tabloids look for the slightest sense of trouble in their marriage.

Now, they're going to be separated from each other for ten weeks, and rumors of infidelity are swirling as the tabloids look for the slightest sense of trouble in their marriage. Will their marriage survive? The Flanigan family feels a deep loss as the children try to navigate their high school lives without CKT. They also have seen the detrimental effects of not having the CKT program in their friends' lives. Will they be able to pull together? Will CKT come back to their hometown? Will their friends continue down the wrong paths that they set out on? John is considering marriage. He wants to marry Elaine, but has difficulty letting go of his house and his life with Elizabeth. Will he continue on with Elaine or retreat to his memories of Elizabeth? Someday is a good theme for this book. Someday Katy and Dayne will have a normal life. Someday John will be able to move on from his past and ask Elaine to be his wife. Someday Ashley will heal from the death of little Sarah. Someday all this will happen. However, much of the book is spent waiting and in pain. Having said that, this is a book I really enjoyed. It's a book that has a lot of turmoil and pain, but it is also a book that had a strong message for me. I was reminded that life is only as fun as I make it, and that I can choose to find joy in every day of my life and of all of my circumstances. I can choose how to respond to life and to the people in it, and I can choose grace, forgiveness and love. Several of the characters in this book need to make these kind of choices, and it's interesting to see them play out in different ways. Here are my thoughts on the major point of view characters. There may be some spoilers included, so read on at your own risk. John: He's thinking about marrying Elaine. In fact, he thinks this is the right move and even buys an engagement ring. However, he finds as he makes plans to build a life with Elaine, that he is having difficulty putting aside the pain and pushing on to the future with Elaine. He's not even sure if building a future with her is the right thing to do. I get it. I do get it. I love that he finally realizes by the end that he has room in his heart for both his memories of Elizabeth and his new life with Elaine. Dayne: He's trying to walk the straight and narrow and stay away from even the hint of impropriety in the 10 long weeks that he's away from Katy. However, a picture implicates him in having an affair with his co-star, and even though it is not him in the picture, no one believes him, including Katy. He spends much of the rest of the book attempting to overcome this crisis and to show his wife how true his devotion is to her and to their marriage. He receives some help from his friend Bob, and after spending time with him (and reading through some letters that Elizabeth wrote), he comes through big time in the husbands trying to fix their marriage department. It's truly a beautiful thing. Ashley: She's healing and mourning the loss of her baby. She's trying to find the good that Sarah's short life caused. There are so many miracles happening with her relationship with Brooke, her acceptance of Elaine, and with the new pregnancy center that she's helping to establish in Sarah's name. Yet, there are still miracles that she's hoping for, and some healing to come. Her story is very poignant in this part of the series, and I've enjoyed seeing her develop as a character in recent books. Katy: She's back to annoying me. In this book, Katy chooses to spend time doing her own thing, instead of being a good and supportive wife. She goes off to make her own movie, spending ten weeks in London. She gets completely disconnected from Dayne, believes the worst about him from the tabloids, and nearly decides that the right thing to do was to end her marriage. I found myself really frustrated with her. Jenny: She is a friend and confidant of Bailey's teenage drama. She's a supportive wife and is busy raising her own children. There are two places in the book where she really shines. First, she reminds Katy that the distance and strain in her and Dayne's marriage is self-inflicted. She caused her own troubles. Second, after hearing about Bailey's friend's abortion, she is burdened with the need to re-open the pregnancy crisis center. This leads to a beautiful story arc for Brooke, and I'm really enjoying. Brooke: Brooke repents of her sins in regarding life so lightly. She repents of her sins in recommending abortion for patients and becomes highly involved in opening a pregnancy crisis center in town. Even better, we see some really tender scenes of her with some of her young patients. She really shines in these scenes. Randi: Sometimes it's good to get inside the head of an antagonist. It's delightful to see here some of the motivations of rebellion and of not feeling loved that led Randi into being the person that she is. We also get to see her repent of her ways and ask God for forgiveness of her sins. We see through her that Jesus completely changes all that he touches. Reagan: Her children are quite the handful. She's lonely in her marriage and feels unloved. She finds herself growing closer to a fireman and allowing herself to separate from her husband. Her husband soon ends the separation by coming home, and she learns that he has truly been unfaithful to her. Things are not happily ever after, and their marriage is still a mess. However, for now they are back together. Luke: He's unhappy in his marriage. He attempts to escape it by long work trips and flirtations with other women. He finds himself making out with Dayne's costar and allowing Dayne to take the fall when the photos are published in the tabloids. He doesn't feel much guilt about the whole thing until he reads some letters that his mother wrote. He feels crushed with guilt and pain and returns home to attempt to make things work with his wife. We don't know if they will work, but they are currently together, and for now, it's enough. Bailey: She's pained by a friend's abortion. She misses Cody. She has other boys on her mind, including Tim Reed. She misses CKT and prays that it will come back to town. In other words, she's a complete mess and I roll my eyes at her teenage drama. Cody: He misses the Flanigans, especially Bailey. He's adjusting to life in the army, and he has a near brush with death. He realizes that God is looking out for him. His portion of this book is small, but sweet and good. Kari: She's still an emotional center in this family as she hosts her sisters for dinners and builds relationships with each of them. She's incredibly sweet as she flits through the book, just holding one or two perspective scenes. Landon: He compliments Ashley's craziness so well. His perspective scenes are sweet, showing him at work and with his father-in-law. He's a true rock and a husband any woman would love to have. All in all, I loved this book and was very excited about it. Looking forward to reading future entries in this series!

    I really liked the baxter series and this wasn't a disappointment. It continued the storyline of the famous actor and his new wife that have to wade through the changes and adjustment of being married, being in public eye and learning to trust each other. They also try to make the short life of a baby have meaning by showing how miracles can come of the experience. Can't wait to read the next and last book. I like that christian values are displayed.

His wife Reagan is at home with their two young children while Luke has been going on numerous trips for work. John Baxter is having a rough time deciding what the next step should be in his relationship with Elaine Denning. John will always love his deceased wife, and will of course cherish the memories he has of her. He has put together scrapbooks for each of his children of letters written by their mother. They are thankfully not damaged in a fire that starts in the Baxter's house attic. They are welcome gifts that seem to come just in time when their inspiration is needed the most. Ashley and Landon are still trying to get over the loss of their baby Sarah. Ashley has asked God to help Sarah's life and memory to be lasting and a help to others. Her sister, Brooke, reopens the crisis pregnancy center calling it Sarah's Door, a place where hopefully life will be the final decision. Finally the right decision has been made about the CKT theater!! Dayne, with the help of making probably millions of dollars as a movie star, at the very last possible minute for dramatic purposes, buys not only the theater building, but the buildings around it, so Katy never has to worry again about losing CKT. The only adding of my two cents I'd like to add is the Baxter home, being that it will have to be put up for sale so John and Elaine can start a life in a new place without emotional memories, I think should be sold to Erin and Sam and their four daughters who are moving back to the area. Maybe in the next book...

    Another inspirational chapter in the Baxter family saga. Although the author's note at the end said this would be the end of the Baxter family series of books, thankfully she did continue to write more. Each book is a terrific stand-alone storyline and you can truly jump in at any point and catch up with what's happened in the family along the way. This is a tremendously inspirational family storyline throughout. Another inspirational chapter in the Baxter family saga.

    Hmmm not my favorite but I don't know if it's just because of all the bad stuff that occurred in the story that made me angry or the annoying repetitive paparazzi parts....it's a toss up.
