Yes, it is one Karen’s older titles and I was surprised when I found it on my book shelf the other day when I was starved for a good book to read and Karen’s always are a great read.
There’s always a lesson in her books, an act of forgiveness or a faith based way to deal with hardships in life or tackle a situation head on and have plenty of courage and strength after prayer.
This book “Ocean’s Apart” really touched my soul. Connor was an airline pilot and Michelle his wife, married with 2 beautiful girls living the American dream with being the happy, perfect family.
On the other side of the world to this family in Honolulu, Hawaii is Keisha and her son Max. She is an airline stewardess raising her son alone and while she’ll has to work on a 2 day flight once a week, Rami is an older lady and friend and has cared for Max his entire life since birth.
Connor receives a phone call one day from an attorney. Keisha was killed in a plane crash there were no survivors and has left in her last will and testimony that Max is to spend 2 weeks with his biological father before he is turned over to the foster care system. Upon the end of the two weeks Connor must decide “will he keep Max and be the father he’s never known or had”?
Not only did Connor know anything about Max but neither did Michelle his wife. When he has to tell Michelle about his infidelity 8 years ago during her bout with depression their marriage starts to crumble. At first Michelle completely shuns this little boy that is impossible not to love! But run out and grab your copy at a bookstore or your local library and read this novel to see how it plays out and with love comes forgiveness and it will take a forgiveness miracle to render this situation for this family and make then whole again.
Will it happen for Max or not?
Will God answer Remi’s forgiveness miracle for Max?
I sure hope you’ll read this novel and find out. All of Karen’s books usually come with a study guide at the end of the book and she has several verses listed to add to the study at times with the study questions to help readers really dig in and become more grounded in our journey of Faith and our relationship with God.
I’ve learned so much about myself and my journey of Faith ANS I definitely recommend Karen Kingsbury’s book! Or books!
I hope you enjoy and God Bless…
