~ Audiobook Review ~

I’m heading back in the Baxter archives to meet this family and get the backstory. Whilst the newer Baxter Family series are all written as stand alone’s I definitely feel it’s been worth coming back to the beginning before continuing the newer books - it will make the newer books feel like coming back to dinner with old friends!

I’m also only listening to the abridged audio version which are 4hrs each, which will be helpful for getting through the 20+ books faster. But also means my review & experience might be missing things.

Characters: This book focuses on Ashley Baxter & Landon. Other characters with growing storylines: Kari & Ryan, Luke & Reagan, Erin & Sam

Series: This is book 2 in the Redemption Series which is the first series in the larger Baxter family story. This series is best read in order, though I skipped book 1 and still feel I got enough of a recap on Kari’s story.

Content: 9/11, Death, Dimentia, pre-marital sex, questioning Christianity, humanism, marital struggles, kissing, romance, redemption, strong Christian focus

Book recommendations:
Another book that focuses on Ashley as the main character: [b: Forgiving Paris|56898079|Forgiving Paris A Novel|Karen Kingsbury|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1614528424l/56898079._SY75_.jpg|88975958] (2021) which can be read as a stand-alone.

Audio Performance: 8/10
In this Abridged version Sandra gives a fully voiced performance (meaning each character is given a unique sounding voice) she reads nicely and was relaxing to listen to.
