I am definitely becoming a new fan of Karen Kingsbury. I didn’t know her books had such religious affiliates to it, but it is definitely a great read and helped me with some of my own issues with God and myself.
Beyond Tuesday Morning is the second book in the 9/11 series, coming after “One Tuesday Morning” when the Twin Towers were attacked on September 11, 2001.
Jamie and Laura have learned to live with their final news they learned about, 3 months after the terrorist attacks. Laura’s husband was alive, and had finally remembered who he is and wanted to return home. Jamie’s husband died doing what he loved best, savings others.
Three years later, Laura is still loving every moment with her new-found husband Erik, who learned a lot from Jake, the man that once loved Jamie and looks just like him. Jamie and Sierra have re-adjusted to life without Jake. Jamie volunteers at a memorial for 9/11. One day on her way to work, she was held at gun-point by several punks. Little did she know, but earlier on her ferry ride she caught the attention if an off-duty officer who was from California. He noticed the men and confronted them, saving her life. They spent every day together for the next three weeks while Clay enjoyed his vacation/training in the Big Apple. When they discover who they both really are, can Jamie overcome her sadness from her husband’s death and be happy? Can Clay accept the role that Jamie once played in Clay’s family’s life 3 years earlier? This is a great story of love and God’s love for all of us.
