LOVING by Karen Kingsbury
As always, Karen Kingsbury writes another story that captures your heart. This was the last book in the Bailey Flannigan Series and although all through this series I wasn't sure if she would be able to pull out a happily ever after ending for Bailey that would make me happy, I must say I was very satisfied with the way she ended this series.
There are challenges, joys and heartaches for Bailey as she seeks to make the right decisions for her life. There was passion, but it was with purity. Brandon Paul is a guy who loves Bailey the way any parent would want their daughter to be loved. But there are obstacles that stand in the way of this love. Cody and Bailey still have issues they need to come to terms with and there was alot of closure to the end of the series, but also alot of beginnings for various people from this series.
One of the things I appreciate the most about Karen Kingsbury's books is the solid testimony her characters give of the way the Lord can and will work in the lifes of people who put their trust in Him and keep Him first in their lifes. The solid convictions that Bailey and others in the book held to and the way the Lord worked all things out for His glory and their best was just refreshing to read about. Are there reall challenges and struggles a believer will experience in their lifes? You bet! But He always proves Himself faithful. I am always encouraged after reading a Karen Kingsbury book and highly recommend this Baily Flanigan Series!
