When Kari Baxter Jacobs finds out that her husband is involved in an adulterous relationship and wants a divorce, she decides she will love him and remain faithful to her marriage at all costs. This book shows how God can redeem seemingly hopeless relationships, and it illustrates one of Gary Smalley's key messages: Love is a decision.

I just started reading the series with the Baxter family characters, and have been touched a lot by them. There are things I can connect to in each book. My mom is the one who introduced me to these books, and recommends them all the time! I just got a friend started on them too! I am so excited to continue reading these books!

Thanks to an interlibrary loan, I finally got to read this series! The hook of this book is that it didn't have a storybook ending. There were sinners who suffered the consequences, and love that sacrificed. A wonderful introduction to the Baxter family.

When my friend asked me to read this book, I was a little worried. I'm more into fantasy, such as eragon or lord of the rings. I was surprised when i fell in love with this book[and the whole series]! I just finished them all, and I'm continuing my way through all of Kingsbury's books. If you read, she will amaze you, and God will even speak to you through her books. :D

This is one of the first books I ever read by Karen Kingsbury. I started this series and the Firstborn series around the same time, which was kind of confusing, but cool at the same time. Karen writes about things that happen to real people and makes you feel like you could fit into the story. You feel the emotions that the characters feel. This book deals more with Kari than the rest of the Baxters, and it is an amazing story that will keep you reading late into the night. I could not put it down, and then of course I had to read the rest of the series...
