Book Review: Waiting for Morning

Waiting for Morning
Karen Kingsbury

I was recently provided a complimentary copy of this book for review.

About the Book (taken from

Hannah Ryan is the mother of two adorable little girls and the wife of a doting husband. Her life is perfect—until the night her husband and eldest daughter are ripped away from her by a drunken driver. Torn by grief and rage, Hannah finds her faith—like that of Jeremiah weeping over Jerusalem—tested to the limits. As she walks the long road of her own modern-day Lamentations, she must learn to forgive… and finally discover that God’s mercies truly are new every morning. Sometimes the road home is only found by letting go.

My Thoughts:
This is a very well-written book, I could really identify with the characters.  While I’ve never found myself in Hannah’s position, it was easy to see how the given circumstances could lead someone to behave just as she did. I love how Karen took the book of Lamentations and gave it a modern twist. It makes me see that book in a whole new light. I really enjoy reading Karen’s books and this one did not disappoint; it kept me up way past my bedtime because I couldn’t stop turning the pages! This book is the first in a series entitled Forever Faithful, I look forward to reading more of this series to follow the characters’ stories.
