Fast forward to 1958; Luke Ramsey, who courted Meg in high school, offers up a lot of money to farmers as the Vanguard corporation he works for wants to buy up all the land. Joe oppos...more

One More Sunrise is a Christain fantasy about a man who hits an angel with his crop duster airplane. The plot explores the changes to the lives in the small Kansas farming town because of it.

Michael Landon Jr. and Tracie Peterson worked seamlessly in this novel. Usually, I spot weaknesses in a book without too much effort. I found none in this one. The plot is complex, with the subplots adding depth to the main storyline. The style is lush without being maudlin or overblown. The Christian moral...more

I picked up this book because I have enjoyed several of Tracie Peterson’s books and Michael Landon Jr.’s direction of the Love Comes Softly film series (based on the Janette Oke books) and I am glad that I did. The story opens in August of 1941 with Joe Daley whose excitement and joy about life are evident. In the second chapter the story jumps to 1958 where Joe’s life has taken a path different from what he intended. He wanted to enroll in the war as a pilot but was not accepted because of a me...more

This was a refreshing reminder of life is not always perfect for Christians but we are NEVER alone -- goodbye to pity party of one! Kindness is always the best clothing to put on every morning. Forgiveness is never easy, but greater is He that is in me!

This Book I highly recommend to anyone I haven't finished it yet but it is about Joe and Meg Daley who were High School sweethearts. But, now married, Joe is a fighter Pilot who got dinked out because of his health and now he flies planes to spray for bugs. He is now sadly a drunk and his marriage is on the brink with two kids: Danny and Christy. Will their marriage survive and see one more Sunerise or will this story end with the sadest Sunset ever? You will have to read the book to find out.

This was a book with some religious overtones. However, it would make a good book to read over a weekend and has some interesting themes. There were also a couple of "out there" moments but I still enjoyed the story. It would make a good movie for the family to see as well. And yes, the co-author is the son of Michael Landon..... As a matter of fact, I could picture Michael Landon starring in this story as the lead if he were still alive.

AWESOME! very different way of the story than what I'm used to. But it was a very good book. Michael Landon Jr continues his father's legacy of good, wholesome, family oriented stories around real struggles.
The only thing I didn't like was the back cover of the book: it didn't tell me anything to intrigue me to want to read it.
Also, I bought it cuz it was a tracie peterson book. If it was just ML jr, I probably would not have bought it.
Alison Sandiford
Well written. A few unexpected twists and turns. A great story of love, forgiveness, and redemption.
Valerie Teeling
Enjoyed the book....I liked that the beginning and the end were similar which tied the plot together nicely. However, I thought that near the end, the story was not detailed enough. Too many conflicts which could have been saved for a sequel.
Katherine
I got this is a gift, I generally don't seek out Christian fiction. It was a page turner for me, but I could also see from the way it was written that the author (who directs made for tv movies) was setting up as a future screen play!
Danielle
This book was not what I wanted it to be. It talked about a husband and wife who are headed for divorce because the husband is at the bar every week. I just don't want to read about people who are on their way to divorce!
Trish Boese
I loved this book and have read it a couple times already! It is a book that's close to my heart. Dirt-poor farmers try to keep their land from falling into the hands of a corporation.
Terry
Lots of exciting and unexpected ups and downs in this novel about faith. My favourite quote "Faith gives second chances". Thanks Gloria Leman for the gift of this special book.
Gretchen
So far it's a fabulous book. I've enjoyed it from the very first page. If you like Hallmark movies on TV, you'll love this book.
Nancy
This was an excellent book about faith, miracles, and second chances. Simple, fast read.
Lisa
Loved it though was disappointed with the lack of follow-through on one of the story lines
Melissa

Linda Allen
This one kind of bogged down for me in places, but all in all it was a pretty good story.
