True to form, Kingsbury packs a powerful message between the pages of her book and the reader rides the waves of emotions her stories bring. The predictability of storyline outcomes and the unattainable perfection of a few of her characters is somewhat disappointing as we enter the third series revolving around the Baxter clan. Despite this, there is no doubt that a Karen Kingsbury book will provide a beautiful message of God’s love, the importance of a strong and loving family and will not shy away from confronting the difficult issues parents and their children face in today’s world – Sunrise is no exception and for that Karen should be applauded. Once again Karen sets the stage for the sequels, the ongoing stories outlined in Sunrise, which will keep readers highly anticipating each release. I recommend reading the Redemption and Firstborn books prior to Sunrise otherwise the reader risks confusion andwon’t fully appreciate the depth of history each character has.
