Someday is the third installment in Karen Kingsbury’s Sunrise Series. This book follows the continuing saga of the Baxter family, focusing on Dayne and Katy Matthews as they begin separate movie projects and face the inevitable tabloid rumor mill, as well as John Baxter, the family patriarch, as he contemplates marriage after the death of his beloved Elizabeth.
God’s sovereign faithfulness is the recurring theme of this book. The characters (whom I’ve come to know so well though the Redemption Series and the Firstborn Series) struggle with real issues. In the opening pages, Ashley Baxter and her husband Landon are reeling after the death of their newborn. Through the pain of losing a child, they helplessly cling to the God they trust, and realize that in all things, He will be exalted. (Psalm 46:10).
As the Baxters face life’s difficulties as well as joys, some mistakes are made, but they always manage to inevitably lean on and trust the Lord, and on one another. They are made stronger through trials, and learn to trust in God’s sovereign love.
Enough information is gleaned about the characters in this book to make it a stand alone book, but for those who have been on this journey with the Baxters in the past twelve books, it is even more satisfying. I would recommend this book and series to anyone. -- Tracey Bonsell, Christian Book Previews.com
A DESPERATE SITUATION
Pressures of the celebrity lifestyle weigh heavily on Dayne and Katy Matthews as they take on separate movie projects. Tabloid rumors talk of trouble and unfaithfulness between the two. And then a dramatic cover photo threatens to destroy everything they’ve worked to build together. Only Dayne knows the truth about the photo, truth that would help Katy believe him. But the truth will also cause devastating damage to the people he loves so dearly—the Baxter family. Dayne must weigh his decision carefully, but at what price?
A HEARTBREAKING LOSS
The Flanigan family recognizes the deep loss of the Christian Kids Theater, and they begin to pray for a miracle—that even without the theater, somehow CKT will go on. Bailey and Connor see their CKT friends fitting in with the wrong crowd and making decisions that will harm them.

John Baxter takes the next step in his relationship with Elaine, giving him a season to contemplate selling the Baxter house—and losing a lifetime of memories.
