This was the first Karen Kingsbury book I read and my first introduction to her famous Baxter family. Following this book, I subsequently read the series. Without a doubt the key characters in the Firstborn series (Fame, Forgiven, Found, Family, Forever) Dayne and Katy were my favourite characters out of all her books. I found it easy relate to them, and the ups and downs of their relationship which was played out in a very public way through the press, gave you a compassion and understanding for what a lot of movie stars must go through. I found myself hanging out to read the next one and the next one. Karen Kingsbury has a way of leaving a book on a "knifes edge" often with something dramatic having happened which is brilliant as it sends you back to the shop then next day to buy the follow up. My only complaint would be that i wish she just stuck with the one set of characters and focused on their story, she tends to be running major story lines from previous characters simultaneously which can be frustrating. But despite that a MUST READ
This is my favourite series by Karen Kingsbury. The characters, plot, romance and twists are all perfect. Once you begin reading it, you won't be able to put it down.
I have read all the books in this series and the series before and after this series...they are all excellent and keep you engaged making it hard to put the book down! If you have not read the series before this series (Redemption Series) I suggest starting at this series first as they all lead onto one another. The series then goes on to the sunrise series and then another two or three series after that. Challenging and inspiring read...easy to relate to so many of the characters
