The final book in the Baxter family (and friends) series is an incredibly meaningful and fitting cap to the journey readers have taken with Kingsbury over the past 10 years. Readers will laugh, cry, reminisce and rejoice along with these characters who now seem like old friends. Themes of faith, family and letting go resonate throughout this beautiful novel.
All the Baxter children, and their families, make their way to Indianapolis for a surprise party to celebrate John Baxter’s 70th birthday. They each write a letter to their father, telling him what he has meant to them throughout their lives. On the day of the party, tragedy strikes and the family must draw together, and toward the Lord, in ways they never could have imagined. (ZONDERVAN, Jun., 304 pp., $14.99)
