A Time to Embrace

A Time to Embrace by Karen Kingsbury is a wonderful love story. Coach Reynolds and his wife, Abby, have just come through a rough time in their marriage, but are falling in love all over again. While everything on the home front seems to be going well, John is having increasing trouble at school and on the football field. False accusations and even a death threat are quickly leading to the termination of John's job as coach for the Marion High football team. As he contemplates retirement at the end of the season an accident changes everything. John's love and faith are tested as they never have been before. Not only does he have his own challenges to face, but the trials of his family and friends weigh heavy on him as well.

I always enjoy reading books by Karen Kingsbury and this one was no exception. Karen is able to put so much into one book it is nearly impossible to summarize. I laughed and cried as I was pulled into the story and lives of each of the characters. As you read this book God's love, faithfulness, and forgiveness will touch your own heart. Karen certainly has a way with words, and I highly recommend this book. I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Booksneeze blogger program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
