A good title for several characters

The main character is Dayne Matthews-unfulfilled actor who is looking for peace and wanting to know what belonging really means. John Baxter is so very alone since the death of his wife, also seeking to fulfill his wife's last wish-to find their FIRSTBORN. In doing so, he faces alot of personal issues that he must overcome. I love Katy Hart-talented Christian Kids Theater director, very down to earth and caring of all. She plays a big role in binding the CKT kids together after a tragedy and lives full of hatred. Her natural ability and caring nature are God given helps for forgiveness. This book makes you ready to continue on with FOUND.


This book/series is one of the best. I read the 2nd book "Forgiven" in one day, its that good. The setting, scripture all of it is great.


This book is wonderful. Everything I have read of Karen Kingsbury has been excellent, but this one exceeded all of them. I laughed and cried. I wish I did not have to wait until May for the next book.

Another winner

I just can't get enough of her books! She is such an amazing write and really makes you feel as if you know Katy and the children. Such amazing work, can't wait for the next one.

Couldn't Put It Down!

I'm a busy person who doesn't have time to read much, but as soon as I got this book in the mail I had it all read in two days! I just put off everything else because I simply could not put the book down. I can't believe I have to wait until next summer to get the next book.

beautiful Christian inspirational novel

Popular and famous Hollywood action star Dayne Matthews has it all but deep down he feels empty inside. Katy Hart who refused a part in a movie with him after she was attacked by a stalker made him feel alive but she and Dayne live in two different worlds and a true Christian would never becomes involved with a man like him. Dayne is looking forward to seeing Katy in Bloomington where part of the film will be shot. Dayne knows that his biological family the Baxters live there but he won't reveal himself to them because he doesn't want to bring the ugliness of his world home to them. Katy who is the director of the Christian Kids' Theater (C KT), is dealing with the aftermath of two young children in the CKT having lost their lives to a drunken driver. The older teens want revenge but Katy tries to teach them that it is not their place to pass judgment. She also has to deal with the deep feelings she has for Dayne, knowing that nothing could ever come of them while he tries to find meaning in his life. Thanks to her, he is on the road to finding himself. This beautiful Christian inspirational novel has life lessons that reach out beyond religion. Dayne might have no choice in his decision not to introduce himself to the Baxters because his father has decided to search for him. The love the two protagonists feel for one another is beautiful although both believe for different reasons that they can't be together. Katy's nurturing abilities to every one she knows combined with her faith makes her a strong person who helps others through the tragedy. Karen Kingsbury has written a wonderful novel that makes readers feel hope. Harriet Klausner
