Book Review

OCEANS APART
by Karen Kingsbury

Genre: Inspirational, Contemporary Romance

RT Rating

Flight attendant Kiahna Siefert has room for only
one man in her life: her 7-year-old son, Max. An ocean away, airline captain Connor Evans lives with his wife and daughters, unaware of his son, Max. Nothing can disturb their life, not even the half-buried memory of a brief and regrettable infidelity.

Then a plane crash takes Kiahna's
life, and her will reveals Connor is Max's father. The heartbroken little boy is sent for a trial period into a home now torn apart by betrayal.

Connor must choose between the
son he's always wanted and the wife he loves. Max believes God will do a miracle and teach the Evanses the truth of his mommy's words: "Love happens when you forgive."

Kingsbury has outdone herself with this sensitive portrayal of sins, consequences and the power of forgiveness. The characters possess fine-tuned depth, and Max's voice rings with authenticity and grace. (Apr., 352 pp., $12.99)
