"RETURN proves that Karen Kingsbury and Gary Smalley are a team that are not to be topped. Just when I say their books cannot possibly get any better, they blow me away with an inspiring, gut-wrenching view at the Baxter family's life." -- Tracy Farnsworth,

Book Jacket:

What will it take to get Luke Baxter's attention?

A Shattered Relationship
Luke, golden boy and the Baxter family's only son, has walked away from everything that mattered most to him: his faith, his family, and Reagan, his only love. Devastated by the events of September 11, 2001, Luke decides that life is random, faith a fraud, and God a fantasy.

A Secret
A baby is about to be born, but with Reagan a thousand miles away in New York City, Luke has no idea he's the father. Now, though, someone in his family learns the truth. The problem? She has a secret of her own, one that will change the Baxters' lives forever.

A Revelation
What will it take for Luke to return to the family who loves and aches for him? And what extremes will a certain young firefighter take to help bring the Baxters together again, and in the process, find his place in the family?

A story of tenacious love and longing for a lost son.

Third book in the Redemption series
