Rejoice - Karen Kingsbury

Summary from GoodReads: A Terrible Tragedy Brooke and Peter are struggling in their marriage when they are faced with the single worst moment ever. What was supposed to be a pool party for their two daughters and a handful of children ends in disaster. As three-year-old Hayley fights for her life, the Baxter family draws together, not even sure how to pray. A Shattered Life Peter is devastated by Hayley's accident. Unable to see past his own guilt, he distances himself from Brooke and their girls and finds other ways to ease his pain. Illegal ways. Peter's choices send him spiraling into a cavernous abyss that threatens to destroy not only his relationship with Brooke but his life. A Reason to Rejoice Against the backdrop of great pain and loss, a Baxter wedding takes place in New York City, a wedding that gives all of them a reason to smile again. Now, what will it take for Brooke and the Baxters to move forward, and how will the sudden loss of one special woman change them all?

This was a great part of the story of the Baxter family.  Brooke and Peter have been having a difficult marriage and when their daughter Hayley has an accident that changes her forever, there is no turning back.  Peter blames himself and removes himself from Brooke and their two children.  Meanwhile, Ashley is trying to move on with her life without Landon.  Luke and Reagan are getting married in NYC on Christmas Eve.  What will happen with Brooke and Peter?  Will Hayley ever recover?  What will become of Ashley and Landon?

Man, I feel like I am a part of this family.  There are so many challenges that they all have to overcome.  Will this family ever get a break?  I am looking forward to finishing Reunion, book #5 of the Redemption series.  I'm glad I am finishing this series before jumping into anything else for 2013.  I have a feeling that it will be hard to not jump into the next series with the Baxters.
