FOREVER determined, forever devoted, forever family

Enjoyed all 5 books of the FIRSTBORN series. While some parts I guessed ahead what would happen, other things took me by surprise! I could feel the determination in the whole of this book. WOW! New characters unfolding as well. I'm sure we will see them in future books. The Baxter family draws you in and you become part of them as their individual stories unfold. Dayne has had a lot of obstacles to overcome and with determination and now relying on the one and only God, he conquers the obstacles. Great story and great read! Read the Firstborn series, all 5 books!

Captivating to the end

This was the 5th of a series and each book made we long for more. I am glad there were 5. This is a young adult novel and is compelling and captivating. I liked that it did not contain offensive language but was 'real'.

Fame, Forgiven, Found, Family and Forever......

I hope that as you read this book, "Forever", you have read the four books that precede it. I dearly LOVED this series. I couldn't put any of the books down for more than a moment. The characters became as real people to me as they did to the author. One thing I found interesting to my own value system is that most other "Christian fiction authors" I have read, are quite squeaky clean i.e. no profanity, no sex scenes, etc. With one phase of the story of this series taking place in Hollywood, the story did encompass the lifestyle of the stars of a movie as you read about in newspapers. It was handled delicately and yet it made the story more believable. As much as some may prefer to have none of this side of life exposed, it does exist. I believe an author who has the ability to include these incidents while maintaining the art of forgiveness of the characters, is doing a wonderful job of spreading understanding, forgiveness and showing the consequences of one's actions which we can all apply to our individual situations, when we choose. I highly recommend each of the books in this series. I loaned these books, one at a time, to a friend who came back every day or two for the next one. After completing each one, she would comment, "I wondered what my neighbors thought, as I sat on my porch, reading this book, with tears streaming down my face." Karen Kingsbury has that ability .... you laugh a while and cry a while..........

kingsbury's best book yet

a quick read because it's so very hard to put this book down. and you're not sure exactly where the story is going to go until it goes there. each character is very likeable building from the redemption series to the firstborn series. definitely kingsbury's best book yet. can't wait to read the next one!


I have read this book plus the other 4 in the series. They are all fabulous and I enjoyed them immensely and have donated them to my church library. I have read all of Karen Kingsbury's books and am looking forward to Sunrise when it is released. Marilyn Fitzgerald Carlsbad, CA

A sweet "conclusion" for a beautiful story

I have to admit that I had my doubts when I bought this book... the last couple of books in this series were quite repetitive and more of the same. But I was beautifully surprised with Forever because it is really one of those books that you cannot put down even though you know how it is going to end. The dialogues between Dayne and Katy are so sweet and romantic that you will always be wishing for more. And we will get more about them in the new series "Sunrise", which I cannot wait to read! But, as in the other books in the Firstborn Series, Forever is not only about Dayne and Katy. Forever is also about Luke and his struggles with himself now that he has a brother. I particularly liked this part of the story because what happens with Luke can be applied to many situations and provided me with things to think about in my own life. Again Kingsbury has created an inspirational story based on faith and love that is not only romantic, but also moving and motivating. It is definitely a must read!


Karen's books are addictive. I see a new one, and need to order it, and once they arrive I cannot rest until I complete it. In the Baxter family's tragedies, Karen's writing skillfully kept my eyes on the Lord and His gracious promises. The Baxter family became friends and Karen allowed me to become involved in the lives of her characters and I found myself drawn to pray for them. Thank you, Lord, for the beautiful writing gift given to Karen for the benefit of her readers.
