Amy (amyfishgirl) | 6 comments Hey all! Some of you know me from Christian Historical Fiction group, but I have been reading contemporary too. I just finished The Redemption Series by Karen Kingsbury. Anyone want to discuss? I plan to read the Firstborn series soon.

Karol Amy, I've not read the Redemption Series, but I have read a couple of books by Karen Kingsbury and enjoyed them. What are the titles in the series? How highly do you recommend them?

Amy (amyfishgirl) | 6 comments Here's the whole list that follows the whole family. ratings outta 5 stars... the first 4 were really good, but the 5th was excellent (based on how many tissues I went through per book) I have a feeling the 2nd set will be better because the first series was co-authored with a counselor-kinda guy, and there was more of that than the emotional stuff.

Redemption Series - Baxters 1
Redemption - Book 1 4 stars
Remember - Book 2 4 stars
Return - Book 3 4 stars
Rejoice - Book 4 4 stars
Reunion - Book 5 5 stars

Firstborn Series - Baxters 2 (i just picked up the first 4 from the library this AM)
Fame - Book 1
Forgiven - Book 2
Found – Book 3
Family – Book 4
Forever – Book 5

Sunrise Series - Baxters 3
Sunrise - Book 1
Summer - Book 2
Someday – Book 3 (Coming 2008)
Sunset – Book 4 (Coming 2008)

I've also read Tuesday Morning based on 9/11 that one was REALLY good too. I was crying by page 80! I just got the sequel this morning, too! I also bought time to dance, time to embrace, a thousand tomorrows, where yesterday lives, when joy came to stay, and on every side. (keeping Kleenex nearby)

have fun:)

I'd be up for a discussion. I'm going on vacation this week and won't have much time to read, but when I get back I'd love to participate in a discussion. I'm assuming I should start reading the first one from the Redemption series, correct? Thanks for starting this, Amy!

I just finished three books I really liked...First was "Out of Her Hands" by Megan DiMaria, and the second was "Secret in the Sauce" which is the fourth in the series for "The Potluck Club." Also read, "Tangled Heart" by Linda Evans Shepherd, which was a devotional type mystery read with a lot of biblical truths.
