A Baxter Family Christmas By: Karen Kingsbury
"From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes A Baxter Family Christmas, the first in a new series, combining the charm and holiday ambiance of The Bridge with the familiar members of fan-favorite family, the Baxters.
Two sorrowful years have passed since the terrible car accident that took the life of John Baxter's daughter, Erin, along with her husband and three of their four daughters. But this year John has invited a stranger for dinner - Kendra Bryant, the transplant recipient who now has Erin's heart.
In light of her father's idea, Ashley and her brother Luke don't think it's right. They want to protect their ten-year-old niece, Amy - the only surviving member of the accident. But John is determined and believes meeting this woman is something his deceased daughter would want.
At the same time, Maddie West, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Brooke Baxter West, is praying for meaning this Christmas. Could she find it in a newfound friendship with a boy she never expected to see again? Maddie believes in miracles, especially at Christmastime, but this is a stretch even she can't imagine.
Meanwhile, Kendra Bryant has been struggling these past few years to find meaning in the tragedy that gave her a second chance. She believes this invitation to see the Baxters and witness their unwavering faith in God can instill hope and happiness back into her life.
Heartwarming and touching, filled with love and hope, A Baxter Family Christmas brings together two families in the aftermath of a tragedy and in the midst of an unfolding love story, all with the help of one very special child."
Karen Kingsbury gives the readers one incredible read in 'A Baxter Family Christmas.' This is
definitely one that you will not want to stop until you are finished with this good read. Even though
this was a sad story of how Kendra received Erin Baster's heart the story had such a incredible
deliverance of how the father [John Baxter] decides to do something different doing this Christmas . Eve. Now what was that? How will this invitation affect this Baxter family? This is where I say you will have to pick this one up and read it for yourself which will be one good read and also giving the reader a 'christian' theme. Be ready for a very 'emotional and heartfelt' read that may even present some tears. Some of the characters had me shaking my head but I think in the end I think they are able to understand the big picture through 'real life growth and change.'
This was a beautifully told story that showed when 'they listen to Him and to each other, they are then
able to experience this Christmas miracle.'
