Book Review: Waiting For Morning by Karen Kingsbury

Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury is a Christian fiction in which a young woman, Hannah Ryan, appears to have the perfect life in Los Angeles, California. She has a husband and two teenage daughters who all love her. On a Sunday evening, two police officers bring heart-wrenching news on her doorstep that would change her life forever.  As a result of this, she becomes very angry with God. She even states, “Couldn’t believe God was real…that he’d done nothing but watch as her family was ripped apart.” Throughout this book, I literally cried because it was so painful to see Hannah battle with grief.

When Christians experience grief or loss, they may question God about why He allowed this to happen to them. Hannah questions God about her loss and claims to stop believing in Him. Karen Kingsbury is an awesome Christian writer that makes her characters seem very authentic. Along the way, the author teaches us a few valuable lessons. Although we may undergo the roughest struggles in life, God is always there. He will never leave us nor forsake us. She also indicates that bad things do happen to good people. Hannah was a devoted Christian who served God with all of her heart but even she was susceptible to life's hardships. This is the first novel in the Forever Faithful Trilogy.  I would give this book an 8 out of 10 and I look forward to reading more of the Forever Faithful Trilogy.
