Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury ~ Book Review

 Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury


 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 thoughts:

Karen Kingsbury has delivered yet another wonderfully well written story of tragedy, heartache and shattered dreams. I have yet to be disappointed by the work of Kingsbury. In this story Hannah Ryan has lost so much of her life at the hands of Brian Wesley, a drunk driver. She struggles with anger and hate and loses her strong faith with God feeling that he has let this happen to her because he no longer loves her. Because of Brian Wesley being a drunk driver she becomes an advocate of MADD and shares her story with the community thinking that fighting to get him behind bars is exactly what she needs to close this door and help her to start healing, unbeknownst to her that this is not what she needed.

Waiting for Morning is definitely a book about keeping your faith during times of great loss and times of tragedy. Hannah and her daughter Jenny learned this the hard way and thank goodness that faith is what brought them back together. I recommend this book to everyone and definitely give it 5 stars.
