My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Have a box of tissues handy when you pick up this book to read! I was bawling within the first couple of pages!
I've never lost anyone close to me because of a drunk driver. I hope I never will either. Tom is taking his two girls on their annual end of the summer camping trip. They have no idea that their lives will change for ever!
I enjoyed this book, but as mentioned earlier, this one is a tear jerker. There a several emotions that will hit you at once and sometimes you don't see it coming. This was my first Karen Kingsbury adult read (I've read a couple of her children's books) and I'm not sure if she always jam packs her novels like this one. Waiting for Morning deals with drunk drivers, death, love, forgiveness, and suicide. That's quite a bit to handle!
I had issues with some of the religious tones in this book (not Biblically accurate) so I'm writing it as though this was a work of strictly fiction. For non-Christians, this book could be construed as "preachy" at times. The characters struggle with their faith in God after the accident and fight to gain it back with the insistence of their new found friends.
