Audio Book Review of Rejoice by Karen Kingsbury and Gary Smalley Narrated by Sandra Burr
Rejoice by Karen Kingsbury and Gary Smalley
Narrated by Sandra Burr
A Terrible Tragedy. . . Brooke and Peter are struggling in their marriage when they are faced with the single worst moment ever. What was supposed to be a pool party for their two daughters and a handful of children ends in disaster. As three-year-old Hayley fights for her life, the Baxter family draws together, not even sure how to pray.
A Shattered Life. . . Peter is devastated by Hayley's accident. Unable to see past his own guilt, he distances himself from Brooke and their girls and finds other ways to ease his pain. Illegal ways. Peter's choices send him spiraling into a cavernous abyss that threatens to destroy not only his relationship with Brooke but his life.
A Reason to Rejoice. . . Against the backdrop of great pain and loss, a Baxter wedding takes place in New York City, a wedding that gives all of them a reason to smile again. Now, what will it take for Brooke and the Baxters to move forward, and how will the sudden loss of one special woman change them all?
My Take: This is the fourth book in the Redemption series. Like all the others this book holds back no punches and shows that even though you may be a Christian that your life will not be charmed and drama free. In this book there is a tragic accident and there are alot of ramifications from that accident. But as is always the case the Baxters rely on God and allow Him to guide them through this tragedy. There are some happy endings and some wait and see what happens endings. There is one more book in this series.
Audio: Once again I am disappointed that this is an abridged version of the book but not having read the book I don't know what was left out. It just makes the book so short. Sandra Burr does a good job of narration.
This book is from my personal audio library.
