Longing . . . for answers
While I have enjoyed all three of the books in the Bailey Flanigan series by Karen Kingsbury, Longing still leaves me longing for answers!
This story will make you smile, and -- as with all KK books -- will find you reaching for the tissues as it makes you cry. Old chapters are closed and new ones opened in the lives of the main characters. Bailey, through a variety of circumstances, sets out on new adventures. Brandon finds himself challenged in his relatively new faith. And Cody experiences great highs in his career, as well as deep hurt and loss in his personal life. Their lives converge and diverge in various ways that make choices anything but simple.
In Loving, due to release in just a few months, we will finally have an answer to the question that has "plagued" readers throughout the series -- Cody or Brandon? While I am very anxious to have the resolution, it will also be bittersweet to come to the end of this journey. I have certainly enjoyed the ride!
