Karen Kingsbury has written what I would call plausible fiction. While this is categorized and intended as a work of fiction, I found myself asking if I would respond the same way Hannah Ryan responded if faced with similar circumstances. In many ways, I hope not. Yet, I realize that Hannah's response is very real and possible. Could I be the friend to Hannah that she found in Carol and Matt? Would my relationship with God change for the better or worse? Would I be able to reach out to my children in my pain?
Waiting for Morning is the first of Kingsbury's Forever Faithful Trilogy. I look forward to completing the series and taking another ride on an emotional roller-coaster. Kingsbury also includes discussion questions at the end of her novel for personal or group consideration.
