Karen Kingsbury's "Waiting For Morning" 4 Stars

Waiting For Morning by Karen Kingsbury.
Hannah loses her husband and one daughter as they were hit by a drunk driver flying through the light and hit them so hard two immediately died on the spot.
Hannah has a daughter that did live through the accident but Hannah can’t be there for her as she believes life will never be right until she makes sure that the person who got behind the wheel driving drunk is put into jail without parole. That isn’t going to happen but she is working with the group MADD and spending all of her time hating that person who took her family away from her.

Hannah who had been so involved with her church life and friends there, she no longer has any time for her old friends she has shut God out of her life. She is sure he wasn’t there doing her job and he let Brian Wesley take her family away.

Her daughter during this time, feels as if the wrong daughter died. She wishes she herself would have died and not her sister, things would be good at home had the right daughter lived. She feels as if her Mom doesn’t even see her any more. She is considering suicide.

I was pulled into this book and was really engrossed in reading and finding out how things were going to go, what was going to happen next. It was a good book and I did enjoy reading it and took a few things away from the book that I was thinking about after finishing it.
I did receive this book through “Blogging For Books” in exchange for an honest review.


“I’m afraid there’s been a car accident…”

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?
