Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury

Book Description:

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 Review:

Waiting for Morning was a heavy read. This novel tackles the real life scenario of coping with the devastation that drunk driving causes. Unlike some faith-based books I’ve read, Waiting for Morning does not down play the complex emotions that most people experience for the sake of providing inspiring characters. That’s not to say that a Christian theme is not paramount throughout the novel. In fact, each chapter opens with a direct quote from the biblical book of Lamentations. The book manages to be faith-based without being overly preachy. For my personal tastes it has a modern-day parable type feel. I give it four out of five stars. I think this is a great read for mature audiences. My 60 plus year old mother thoroughly enjoyed it!
