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.
Kingsbury has been a favorite author for many years. Her books began to get predictable and that is something I dislike. "Waiting for Morning" is a book about bitterness and anger against God and learning to forgive and go on with life.
The book has brought twinkles to my eyes, it held my interest, kept me turning pages to see what would happen next. A fast paced and heartwarming story.
A terrible tragedy fills Hannah with unforgiveness, Kingsbury writes in such a way that you feel this characters anger and the need for revenge. Also as she realizes her need to forgive and the need to let go and let God take control.
I give it 5 of 5 stars.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
