Perhaps I am getting a bit cynical....I usually love Karen Kingsbury's books. However, I have noticed an annoying trend in the majority of them:
Boy and girl meet in elementary/middle/high school and fall MADLY in love
Boy and girl are separated by some terrible twist of fate
Boy and girl lose each other and their faith
FASTFORWARD 5-10 years
Boy and girl are living separate lives FAR from their hometown...but oddly within blocks of each other
Everyone they know is a Christian, living a perfect l

I thoroughly enjoyed the 9/11 series by Karen Kingsbury. The first two books One Tuesday Morning and Beyond Tuesday Morning -- were fabulous. Of all the Kingsbury books I have read, these were the best in terms of story line, quality and well-developed characters. While Every Now and Then was quite good, it was not as strong as the first two in this series. A somewhat typical level of Kingsbury predictability made it less interesting to read, and I found myself more frustrated with the main char ...more

Not my favorite Karen Kingsbury novel, I didn't find Alex's story as powerful as the first two 9/11 novels. The other hit home and where very powerful. Alex was a character I just couldn't find myself liking. I'm not exactly sure why I couldn't like him, but I just felt no sympathy for him. Oh well, I am looking forward to reading Karen Kingsbury's other series, especially the famed Baxter family novels.

I read this book first in the series. I wish I kept an eye more about when books belong in series. I always mistakenly read the last one first! I really need to work on that...

I thought that Kingsbury did an excellent storytelling of the terrible tragedy of 9/11 which occurred over eight years ago. This is still a touchy subject for those who have lived through it and heartwrenching to hear the details over and over.

The main character, Alex, was hardened and stubborn from the effect of his fath

I am a Christian. I believe what John 3:16 says. I go to church every Sunday. I am raising my daughter in this faith. That being said I can't stand most Christian Fiction. With the exception of Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti, it all seems very fake. It's like a fairy tale, it always seems to have a happy ending. I am here to tell you folks, there have been periods in my life where there was no happy ending. So I do not want to read sappy love songs disguised as christian fiction.

Because of this I

I really liked the strong emphasis of God's concern in working in people's lives to bring together seemingly unrelated circumstances for totally different corners of their lives to work on their soul to bring them to Him, back to Him, or even just to teach them and make them stronger or wiser. This is so true. It's touching to me how much He really does care about each individual and giving them comfort and peace no matter their trial. This book reminded me of that old song, "This world is not m ...more

This was the last in a series about families of 9/11 victims. I hadn't read the prior books, but I'd like to. Christian, moved along and good story. I like this author but I wish not every book was part of a series, they are so hard to get from the library in the order you want them.

This is the final and 3rd book of this 9/11 series by Karen Kingsbury, and how I wish it wasn't! These were very inspiring books, and though there was sadness in the characters' lives, they found hope, love, and faith in God again, until then they had a difficult time moving on with their lives. That is hard to explain, but I love the way Karen brings across the message of God's love and protection for us- it's not preachy, etc. She is excellent in her writing! I highly recommend this book, I fe ...more

I did not know this book was the last book of a trilogy and I still loved it! This book gave so much spiritual advice that only the Holy Spirit can reveal. I found life changing quotes in here. The ending was beautiful and made me cry...I honestly think this is my favorite book ever. It talks about the life of someone who is so hurt by 9/11 that it affects his who life including the ones he loves. I encourage people of all ages to read it because I am a teen and I absolutely loved it. It shows t ...more

I haven't read the other books in this series, but I think it's admirable that Kingsbury is covering the difficult subject matter of 9-11. I had mixed feelings about the story line. So much attention was given to the relationship between Alex and his dog and the words, "bad guys" was used so often it got annoying. I liked Jamie's character and the way Kingsbury highlighted her closeness to the Lord through her prayers and the presence of the Holy Spirit. I disliked the way every aspect of the st ...more

Seeking the resolution to grief and finding love again, Kingsbury swirls the characters through dramatic life events after 9/11 and the LA fire storms. Although I enjoyed the plot and purity of heart in this novel, I felt the author over and over again repeated trite phrases that preached instead of allowing the reader the opportunity to realize important points of the novel on his/her own. Like Alex, the main character, we each must come to our own private realizations before a life lesson is t ...more

This is the stupidest creation yet.

They're sitting around and one says "We never would have found the happiness of these relationships if it hadn't been for 9/11." The three couples learned lessons from it and then "chose life" and remarried or mended a broken marriage.
But saying it that way is like they're trying to imply they never would have found OTHER happiness? They think it needed a situation where people lived for an hour, hoping they would get out of Tower 1, only to die being crushed b

Another wonderful novel by Karen Kingsbury! This one is about the son of a firefighter who was killed in the 911 Towers. The son has vowed the spend the rest of his life as a police K9 officer, and along with his trusted dog Bo, prevent as many bad guys as he can from killing anyone else. Kleenex were needed at the end of the book, but as He always does in Kingsbury's novels, God's Grace and His miracles were evident.
Sara
This was my first book by Karen Kingsbury and I really wanted to like it...but I found myself disappointed in it. I felt that too much time and detail was spend on useless things, such as her in depth details of the freeways/streets. Do I really need to know that Alex turned right off the Ventura freeway onto a Jones Street and then left over a hill, to lead to the second house on the left?! Also, I found it frustrating that it took 3/4 of the way through the book for Alex and Holly to finally m ...more

I had a difficult time finding this third book in the "One Tuesday Morning" trilogy. My library copy of this book shows "Remember Tuesday Morning" as the title, but it comes up as "Every Now and Then" also. I'm not sure why the title change.
Vicky
I am a huge fan of Karen Kingsbury, but I found myself struggling to enjoy this book. There were just too many far-fetched coincidences and perfect endings all tied up in a neat bow. A beautiful message, but she could have written it better.
Britt Hanson
A good end to the 9/11 series (as far as I know it's the last book).

I have really enjoyed getting to know Karen Kingsbury through her writing. I really admire her putting her faith into her work and am sure that her books have changed some lives.
Amanda Clinton
This was a good read if you want to rip your heart out and stab it with ice picks. The character development was great. But I just couldn't handle all the emotional torment surrounding all the characters.
Barbara
Every Now & Then is a very appropriate title for this story; the plot illustrates that with the Lord's help someone can progress from being so consumed and obsessed with a tragic event in their lives that it hurts them as a person and destroys relationships to healing and arriving at a place where the event is still important, but they can enjoy relationships with other people again and think of the past periodically. Many people may be helped by reading about this journey that Alex, Holly, ...more
