More of Karen's books…
“I tell of hearts and souls and dances...
Butterflies and second chances;
Desperate ones and dreamers bound,
Seeking life from barren ground,
Who suffer on in earthly fate
The bitter pain of agony hate,
Might but they stop and here forgive
Would break the bonds to breathe and live
And find that God in goodness brings
A chance for change, the hope of wings
To rest in Him, and self to die
And so become a butterfly.”
Karen Kingsbury, Oceans Apart

“Three years? That's a thousand tomorrows, ma'am.”
Karen Kingsbury

“Real love never fails.”
Karen Kingsbury, Forever

“The raindrops on her eyelashes made her blue eyes sparkle and he was instantly sure of one thing. He'd never seen any girl more beautiful.”
Karen Kingsbury, Love Story

Karen Kingsbury, Love Story

Karen Kingsbury, Love Story

“And like that, the decades disappeared and the memory of that night came to life again. The way John had known it would. He didn't fight it, didn't work to stay in the here and now. If he was going to go back, then he wanted to relive it. All of it.”
Karen Kingsbury, Love Story
