Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury-- A WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group Book Review

The Blurb:

“I’m afraid there’s been a car accident...”

As Hannah Ryan waits for her family to return home from a camping trip, she realizes she has everything going for her—a husband other women admire, two charming teenage daughters, and a loving Christian home. As the sunny afternoon turns into twilight, her uneasiness grows along with the shadows. Then a car pulls into Hannah’s driveway, bringing two police officers...and devastating news that shatters her life forever.
   In the days that follow, Hannah struggles with unspeakable feelings of sorrow and rage—feelings that fuse into one chilling purpose for living: revenge against Brian Wesley, the drunk driver who has caused all her pain.
   In her fury, Hannah shuts the Lord out of her life. She’s determined not to forgive Wesley or the God who allowed this tragedy to happen. Can two caring people help Hannah rediscover her faith...before bitterness destroys her?

My Review:

Karen Kingsbury wrote a realistic story that could reflect my family or yours, if we were placed in a similar situation. As Waiting for Morning unfolds the reader understand why God addresses anger and admonishes us not to let it take root in His Word the Bible .

I liked the use of verses from the Book of Lamentations at the beginning of each chapter and how they set the tone of each chapter, The verses also reflected Hannah’s walk through her grief.

I recommend Waiting For Morning by Karen Kingsbury which is the first book in the Forever Faithful series. I have ordered, A Moment of Weakness, the second book in this series.
