A Time To Embrace

Life-changing, miraculous, unbelievable! Not sure if I am using the words to describe my own personal discovery and change or describing the characters that Karen Kingsbury uses in her novel, A Time To Embrace.

John Reynolds stems from a family of football coaches. It's in his blood and each succession of his family grows, he sees wisdom in his father's words that you coach as long as the game remains unchanged. Yet in John's life it will change in many, unexpected ways.

Abby has been his faithful wife for almost 22 years, and just shy of a few weeks ago, her and John were prepared to tell their kids that their marriage was over. Yet when their oldest daughter Nicole announces her engagement, they decide to wait until they get married. Not much will change between them, while they wait.

Like most parents, Chuck Parker dreams of a professional football career for his son Casey. Now that Casey is a senior at Marion High, his only obstacle is the amount of play time the coach is giving his son. Since nothing seems to sway Coach Reynolds, Chuck begins to plan for taking the coach out, weaving lies of deceit to other parents that think maybe Coach Reynolds needs to be replaced. Perhaps his Christian methods of choosing players isn't so godly after all.

When an anonymous letter shows up on the Coach's car, threatening the coach of allowing his football players to drink and participate in street racing, John Reynolds realizes his days of coaching are numbered.

When Nathan Pike, a once well mannered high school student turns Goth and the football players begin to bully him, Coach Reynolds finds a drawing that concerns him. A skull and crossbones with the words, Death to Jocks! on it, he begins to wonder just how serious this threat is.

Yet when a life changing accident happens, it will change the lives of every single person living in the town forever, and nothing will be the same as it was for any of them.

In the novel A Time to Embrace by Karen Kingsbury, we get to witness first hand the very power of God in every single situation presented in her wonderful book. This is the second novel in the Timeless Love Series and through the presentation of a fictional story, Karen Kingsbury weaves a message of hope, commitment, and faith in God that will forever change the way you view God and His message of forgiveness and redemption.

I received this life changing book compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers and would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who needs a shot of honest faith and restoration in God, or in saving a troubled relationship. THIS WILL DO IT! Trust me! It worked personally for me! So it comes as no surprise that I would rate this book a life changing 5 out of 5 stars!
