I enjoyed reading this book, although I found it a bit predictable and figured out what was going to happen in the book before getting to the end.
After the tragic loss of her husband on 9/11, Jamie Bryan has to learn what it is like to live without a spouse and takes on trying to heal as well as being a single parent. She wonders if she will ever be able to love again and lives daily in the shadow of memories that make it difficult for that healing to begin. After the 9/11 tragedy, Jamie comes...more

It's been three years since 9/11. Jamie spends her free time volunteering, trying to help others, but she still isn't really healed in her own heart. Her daughter Sierra is now 7, and already beginning to lose some of her memories of her daddy. Will they ever be whole?

This may be fiction, but it's still instructive. Beyond Tuesday Morning contains both an adult and a child's understanding as it moves through gentle conversations about the hardest of questions: about death, and life, and love, an...more

I did not realize this was the sequel to "One Tuesday Morning" until it was too late. I should begin by saying that this was a sad read in many ways, although touching in it's depiction of widows overcoming their loss on 9/11. Tears flowed from my eyes on several occasions as I internalized the loss of the families whose loved ones perished in the Twin Towers. The longing, the guilt, the need to hold on to their loved one's memory were all so poignantly clear in this story.

I found this book to be very good. I could tell what was going to happen, but I always enjoy trying to figure out how an author is going to let it develop! I am going be honest, reading these books has brought me closer to my faith and brought me to the point of extending my learning. So if anything, that is one thing that these books have done.
Sarah Lynix
What a compelling read! For a Christian author, Kingsbury always tackles the most interesting and intense topics with ease. I am a Christian and sometimes I have a hard time with Christian fiction because it can be very boring! Not Karen's books...she acheives her purpose while enticing the reader to finish the book.

I enjoyed the first book in this trilogy, (One Tuesday Morning) and was anxious to follow the lives of the main characters as the story continued, but found this book tedious, endlessly repetitious and disappointing. It was a big price to pay to find out what happened to characters I grew fond of in the first book.
Danielle
These books are not as gritty as I am used to, but the story and more importantly the message is compelling. 9/11 changed the world forever. I will never forget how it all unfolded for me and the students in my classroom that day. The two books in this series tell the stories (fictional) of what happened in two families as a result of the attacks on the World Trade Center. They examine the raw human emotion and the quest to regain or retain faith while staring into the face of evil. I was given...more

WOW! This book had everything I look for in a good read.
It moved me from laughter to tears and back again. Throughout the book, I kept thinking what would I do in this situation. Would I handle this as well as these characters? I just don't know the answer to that.
This is the continuing story of Jamie Bryan and her daughter Sierra. Their story started in One Tuesday Morning where we find that Jamie's husband (Sierra's daddy), a FDNY fireman is killed when terrorists attacked the Twin Towers in N...more

After reading a few Karen Kingsbury books, they all run together and sound similar. This one was no exception.

Of course it doesn't help when you find out that the person you know suffered ungodly agonizing pain before he died and that it took him 20 minutes before he (possibly?) died but not knowing b/c the only thing you know for sure is that he screamed before the phone was disconnected. He could have lived the rest of the time for all *I* know, just injured instead of in one piece. All kinds of OTHER people lived almost up until the very end, for the whole 102 minutes his tower was in flames. Then di...more

I thought this book was just ok. The writing was atrocious in places. The training class in NY started out being mid November to early December, but ended up being the 1st 3 weeks in November. And in some places it said it was 6 weeks. Then, the "voice" of the little girl, Sierra, was just a bit too young for a bright 2nd grader. The author seemed to want to make her out like Junie B Jones, but Junie B is in kindergarten. When Sierra is thinking she says things like, "I did a sigh," instead of "...more

This is the sequel to One Tuesday Morning and it has now been three years since the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11/01. Jamie Bryan is working at St. Paul's Chapel to help counsel visitors with grief. She believes that it is her calling from God to help others work through their pain from their losses. One day on her way to the chapel, Jamie encounters some trouble from some young adults on the ferry ride. Two officers were on the boat and came to her rescue. They were police officers...more

"Life's a fragile thing…September 11 taught us that…For those of us who remain – all of us touched by that day, we need to find strength and hope in Christ, and to do the thing He asks us to do." So states one of the main characters of Karen Kingsbury's novel, Beyond Tuesday Morning, a heartwrenching look at the survivors of the greatest terrorist attack America has ever known.

Quite honestly, like most Americans, I had put the horror of 9/11 behind me. I had not forgotten – I don't know how anyo...more
Heidi
I really did hope that Kingsbury would redeem herself with Beyond Tuesday Morning, but I felt this book was even more improbable, predictable, and contrived than the first. There were so many errors in the book that should have been worked out in rough drafts - it left me thinking 'where is this woman's editor!' The timelines of certain events got mixed up, like when the FDNY training was and how long it went for. I couldn't stand the daughter Seirra's POV voice, and didn't feel her voice was ev...more
Megan
Good story. I read the first book and therefore felt invested in the story which is touching and unique. Beautiful, really showing how everything happens for a reason and that we must not live in fear. However I rated it a two because the writing is poor. As another reviewer said it is not a very believable language particularly in scenes with criminals/non Christians. The Christian characters are believable however the non believer characters especially the criminals in the ferry and again in t...more

Just finished reading Karen Kingsbury's "Beyond Tuesday Morning". I am reminded that God is a God of second chances and His mercies are new every morning. I am also reminded that God is a God of Miracles, when things seems to be not working out as planned, He is still in control and He surprises us in overwhelming ways! :)

I learned that God is a God of life... everyday we have 2 choices: Life or Death.

We may think we never chooses death, but breathing is not life at least not in its truest sense...more

This book by Kingsbury takes us beyond the last one. I will not tell you about the story because others usually do. It picks up where the last one left off and brings us through some amazing and unusual events until finally the characters have a chance to heal.
A read you will enjoy but you have to read the other one first to fully enjoy it.

The first book series I have read by Karen Kingsbury. This is a sequel to One Tuesday Morning. It has been three years since the September 11 attack. Jamie Bryan, a widow, is not doing much better coping with her grief but, is now volunteering at St. Paul's a chapel across the street from the Twin Towers. She feels a connection to men she meets there. One a firefighter like her husband and the other a LA policeman and brother of Eric Michaels the man she took care of for three months under false...more
Barbara
This sequel to One Tuesday Morning was even better than the first book in the series, in my opinion. I found it emotionally draining in certain chapters, but not nearly as much as the previous story. It very realistically demonstrates how difficult it is to "choose life" after a tragedy, and what an emotional roller coaster that is. Karen Kingsbury also reminds you through her storyline that God has a plan for our lives, even during the times we don't understand the "whys" of everything. This wo...more

Once again Karen Kingsbury has written a wonderful, sensitive book that is alive with love, information, and a vivid storyline. I can hardly wait to read the third book in this series.
Kelly Derse
I really enjoyed this series and to be honest was sad to see it end. The story line was a little far fetched, but very romantic and found myself wanting to believe it was true. <3
Tina
I gave this three stars for a couple of reasons. I listened to it on audio and unlike the first book in the series they used this really annoying "echoing " voice when talking to God. I got used to it after a while, but the first book did not do that and I found it much more favorable. Also this was very predictable. Without adding any spoilers I knew from very early in the book what was going to transpire in Jamie's life and relationships. Nevertheless I have sort of become attached to her and...more

This is the sequel to "One Tuesday Morning," which is where Jamie's story really begins. Based on the tragedy of 9/11.

Jamie's husband was a firefighter and she livedhim more than anything. When he died in the collapse of the twin towers, she was grief stricken and swore she could and would never no able to love again.

Jamie's husband was a person of great faith and played a role leading Jamie to the Lord. As a way to keep her husbands memory and legacy alive, Jamie volunteers at St Paul's Church...more

Great story about 9/11. One of my favorites by this author. It will make you cry so be prepared but it will touch your heart too.
Terrie
Just as good as the first 9/11 series. Loved the storyline the characters are realistic and many of their struggles can be identified with.
Ruth
This was a real good book. Even though it is fiction the author made it seem very possible. A woman who lost her husband in the 9?11 tragedy went through some incredible times in the 3 years that followed. She poured herself in volunteer work to help others deal with their losses as a healing process for her. Much to her surprise after becoming attracted to another man she discovered that she had not really dealt with her own loss. God worked wonders in her life as she came to grips with this. S...more

“Wrinkles was her big gray cat. Sierra named him Wrinkles because when he was a little baby he had a wrinkly face. He slept in Sierra's room, but not always on the bed. Mommy said that was 'cause Wrinkles had an attitude. Most cats had attitudes, actually.” 2 likes
