What results is a beautiful tale of grace, love and forgiveness.
Written in a way that is super real and raw, Waiting for Morning is a book that really engages the reader and draws them into the story. Kingsbury deals with the issues of hate, teen suicide, depression, faith, and forgiveness in a way that readers could picture themselves dealing with it. This is a great book, once you start reading it you won’t want to put it down. Just make sure when you to have a box of tissues handy when you start reading. 🙂
