Ok, so I didn’t know my post on the Redemption series would cause such a stir! I guess when I put my opinion on the internet I should be prepared for some feedback!! Perhaps I was a little strong with my words (definitely not seasoned with salt & full of grace!) and I hope I didn’t offend those of you who love it. I will continue to read on, maybe not right now but again soon… I already have the whole series so I don’t have to worry about how or where to get it.
While I didn’t care for the book as a whole I will agree that there were messages of hope for people who are in a failing marriage (or for those who aren’t)… to hold tight to the Truth and trust that God will pull you through. And it definitely held my attention because I didn’t put it down. I guess when I watched Tim and Kari work hard on their marriage and come through successfully in restoring their marriage and then to have him shot and killed (b/c the mistress lied about being pregnant) right before their baby was born just left me a little frustrated. After them restoring their marriage I was hopeful for a “happy ending”… maybe that’s why it’s a series… maybe this is just chapter 1 into the Baxter’s lives… hopefully the happy ending comes with book 5!
Thank you all for your comments and book recommendations. By no means have I written off Christian fiction… I was just a little irritated with this one! But I’ve got 4 more in the series and I’ll report back when I read them! And I’ll try not to be such a tough critic on the next ones!
