I'm glad I decided to give Karen Kingsbury a second chance, because I LOVED Halfway to Forever. It had all the good points of A Moment of Weakness and none (or only very few) of the bad ones. I do realize that this means I'll have to read more by her to figure out which is the rule and which is the exception ;-)

Halfway to Forever is a wonderful book about trusting God through adversity, and listening to Him, even when He seems far away. It's probably too in-your-face for a non-Christian, but an
I have read, by far, more books by Karen Kingsbury than any other author. However, I finally got tired of her books which were so often about the Baxter family. But, I found some newer books that aren't about the Baxters! And, I found this book which is the 3rd in a series I'd started years ago. It's older, but one I hadn't read.

I'm so glad I gave read another of her books! Besides being wonderful stories, they are truly inspirational and teach us about faith. And, like this one, I often go thro

Waiting for Morning's Matt and Hannah, and Jade and Tanner from A Moment of Weakness -- who once again face traumatic issues. I have waited a while for this, the third, in the series. It was great!

I almost couldn't read this book because it hit to close to home. I cried, a few times, which I almost never do.
The third book in the Forever Faithful series was an awesome read! Dealt with real family issues.

It's been a long time since I've cried so much while reading a book. But it's only because Kingsbury had me so enveloped in the characters that I sincerely felt as if they were loved ones. So sad to see this series end.

Proof that God grew fragrant flowers of hope in the ashes of loss

Karen Kingsbury hasn't disappointed me yet! Halfway to Forever is one book you'll need tissues near by. Heartache to hope .. it's easy to relate to Karen's books. What a great author!
Ms Kingsbury has again written a wonderful book. I got so wrapped up in the people, Tanner and Jade and Hannah and Matt.. There stories were so great that I wanted to keep reading to see where they were led. Little Grace is led from poverty with her mother to a wonderful adoptive family and then torn away.. Had to find out what happens with Grace.. Now I will have to get the other book in this series (Forever Faithful)as this was book three..
Another fantastic story by Karen Kingsbury. This story is touching. Two couples, who are best friends, endure joy, sorrow and life in general.

The lesson to be learned is that no matter our circumstances, we are never alone. God is always with us.

Highly recommend this book.

This is a really good book for anyone struggling in their faith after the loss of a loved one or after a major disappointment in life; also for the person who needs a reminder of God's faithful love and powerful deliverance in the midst of confusing and oppressive circumstances. This book addresses the question: "Why do bad things happen to good people?" It also deals with the subject of loss and the death of loved ones.

Love Karen Kingsbury! Everything she writes touches my heart. There's always love and family issues that need resolution. God is always the center of that resolution. She has a way of sharing scripture that brings it to a new light for me. I just plain feel good when I read her books. They are an easy read...a curl up in your favorite chair and just enjoy!

Now that I've quit crying and cleaned up all the tissues, I think I can write a review.

This is my second reading of Halfway to Forever. I read it years ago before Jamie's illness. Certain circumstances touched me deeply now as they mirrored some of my own personal stories. Great, emotional story!

An amazing account of a journey challenged by tribulations which tested everyone's faith. If you are going through a struggle and need some hope, read this book. You will not want to put it down, until the end. The book speaks of adoption, cancer, forgiveness, love, work and priority, prayer, faith......
Een prachtige afsluiter van de forever faithful serie.
Ik vond dit boek dan ook het mooiste van de drie zeker omdat hier de personages van beide boeken samen kwamen.
Verdriet en vreugde komt samen en sleept je mee tot het eind van het boek.
I really liked this 3 book series. I enjoyed both of the first books as they each covered a different family/story and then the third tied the 2 families together. It was hard to put these down. Her books are such a fast easy read.
This book was really good. It hit close to my heart as I can relate to much of the experiences. The more I read of Karen Kingsbury the more I like her. I struggled with her at first but I guess it was just the series I was reading.
I totally love Karen Kingsbury, and this book didn't disappoint me. I LOVED how she portrayed God's faithfulness and care in the lives of the characters in this book. Have a box of tissues handy when reading this book, though. :)
I found this book really hard to enjoy. It was difficult to watch these characters go through even more drama with their lives after already facing so much in the previous two books.
Randy Alcorn
Halfway to Forever has believable characters you care about. You’ll feel their tension, heartbreak and joy. Karen Kingsbury sweeps readers right in. She really knows how to tell a story.
I really loved this book, and like Karen in her epilogue, I got really close to these characters. Had me in tears toward the end. I was so glad I borrowed this one to read.
Marcie Miller
A superb third followup of Hannah, Matt, Jade and Tanner. An excellent book to read. Full of worry, doubt, fear, but God is always god no matter the trials!
Wow, this book had somewhat of a good ending.
I really enjoyed the way that the author tied the stories of the two families (from the first two books) together... great read!
Two couples support each other during challenging personal crisis' and demonstrate the value of true Christian friendship.
