Another re-read review for me. I haven't read through the Baxters in some time, and lately I've been missing my momma, so I am glad to be back to the Baxters. They bring me closer to her since she hooked me on them. So, when I finished Redemption, I jumped into Remember and was not disappointed.

Much like the first book, you feel like coming home with this one, too.

Remember is a story that hits home with me. I was lost for a time, but with my mother's love and my father's love and the love of the good Lord above and lots of prayer, I found my sins were too much to bear alone, and I remember who I belonged to and who loved me. I just needed to honor them. Reading this book reminded me of that and made me so thankful for God in my life and remembering why I need Him in my life. Watching Ashley's story unfold, realizing the messages that God was leaving for her in those around her, really tugged at my heart. Ashley's character has always been a favorite of mine, and I felt like I was reunited with a long lost friend.

This is definitely still a 5 star book in my opinion. This book will twist you up, make you smile, make you angry, and make you fall in love a fictional family all in the same setting. This family is no longer a fictional family for me, and I am happy to say that this book is still on my keeper shelf. The Lord truly knows how to work His grace and honor through the talented hands of Ms. Kingsbury and I love that. If you want a book that will be unforgettable and jump off the pages like a movie playing on the big screen, then look no further than that of this second book in the Redemption series. Have tissues handy and be ready for a powerful move from God!
