Remember - Karen Kingsbury

Summary from GoodReads: The Redemption series won "Christian Retailing"'s 2005 Retailer's Choice Award for Best Series Convinced she could make it on her own, Ashley Baxter has kept the most important people in her life at a distance-her family, the man who loves her, and the God she is sure can never forgive her. Now, just as she begins to open her heart, the events of September 11 rip into Ashley's world and she is led to heartbreaking and hope-filled decisions that will forever change her life. This story vividly illustrates that we must value others more than ourselves, and it drives home one of Gary Smalley's key messages: Honor one another.

"Remember" is second in the five-book Redemption series by Gary Smalley and Karen Kingsbury that centers around the Baxter family. As readers follow the hopes and struggles of the family, they will explore key relationship themes as well as the larger theme of redemption, both in characters' spiritual lives and in their relationships. Each book includes study questions for individual and small-group use as well as a "teaser" chapter of the next book in the series.

In this book, the story's main focus is on Ashley.  She learns a lot about herself, her son, Landon, her family and her love for God in this book.  I am glad that we learned about what happened in Paris with her and how her life changed after telling someone.  The affect of September 11th on this family also was a key topic, especially with Ashley and Luke.

I am really enjoying getting to know the Baxter family!  I am looking forward to continuing in book #3, Return, which I will be getting to soon.
