**EDIT** WHOOPS! Apparently, Ever After is the sequel to Even Now.
If there was ever a book series that I was completely absorbed in, it's the series by Karen Kingsbury about the Baxter family. I loaned the Redemption series out but I have the Firstborn series and Sunrise. I'm reading her newest book, Summer, right now, which I'm finding hard to put down! You'll want to read these in order of the way I've listed them below.
The whole story starts with the Redemption Series:
Then goes to the Firstborn Series:
And finishes up with the Sunrise Series:
Someday (Spring 2008)
Sunset (Spring 2008)
Other books I have of hers include:
Forever Faithful Series (Waiting for Morning, A Moment of Weakness, and Halfway to Forever)
Like Dandelion Dust (stand-alone title, meaning not part of any series)
Ever After (stand-alone)
If you would like to borrow any of them, please let me know. I bet you could find most of these in your library, too. :)
