A Terrible Tragedy

Brooke and Peter are struggling in their marriage when they are faced with the single worst moment ever. What was supposed to be a pool party for their two daughters and a handful of children ends in disaster. As three-year-old Hayley fights for her life, the Baxter family draws together, not even sure how to pray.

A Shattered Life

Peter is devastated by Hayley’s accident. Unable to see past his own guilt, he distances himself from Brooke and their girls and finds other ways to ease his pain. Illegal ways. Peter’s choices send him spiraling into a cavernous abyss that threatens to destroy not only his relationship with Brooke but his life.

A Reason to Rejoice

Against the backdrop of great pain and loss, a Baxter wedding takes place in New York City, a wedding that gives all of them a reason to smile again. Now, what will it take for Brooke and the Baxters to move forward, and how will the sudden loss of one special woman change them all?

Reviews about Rejoice (Redemption Series-Baxter 1, Book 4) by Sandra Burr,Karen Kingsbury

These books are addictive. You need to start with "Reflection". There are 5 in the Redemption series. Then move on to the Firstborn series (another 5), then 4 books in the Sunrise Series. I have taken a break but will soon start the next 4 book of the Above the Line Series and that moves into the Bailey Flanigan series of 4 books. Each book will stand by itself - but they are better read in order.Though it may not be great literature, it is definitely fun reading and the books are followed by reflective questions at the end.
This book and this series was something that I so enjoyed. The story pulls you into the family and the trials that they go through, you can relate to them. Through this book and series, I was reminded of all the awesome things that God can do in our lives, and even when they don't turn out the way we want them, God is still loving us and in control. I read all 14 of the Baxter books in 30 days and was so sad when I finally finished the last book. However, I have moved on to the "Above the Line" series and it is nice that we still get peeks of the Baxter family. I had borrowed several of these books from the library when I was reading them, but I think that I will actually end up buying them for my Kindle so I can read them again. It's definitely a keeper and I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who are going through tough times and need to be reminded of the hope in Jesus Christ.
This is the fourth book in the series, and it follows the lives of a Christian family, their problems, joys, sorrows and everything in between.
It is fictional, but gives a valuable insight to how others handle various difficult times in their lives. It shares how even good living, good Christian families have difficulties and how important prayer is in our lives
I absolutely love the entire Redemption series. Book 4, Rejoice, certainly delivers as expected. I have absolutely loved traveling the path of the Baxter Family. Karen Kingsbury and Gary Smalley are amazingly gifted writers and this book is everything I expected it to be and more. I highly recommend following along in the Redemption series. It not only allows you to become part of the Baxter Family, but will also inspire you and touch your heart.
After reading the complete set of 5 books, I found there were a few inconsistencies in the story from one book to the next. Since I am a stickler for detail that kind of threw me off a little, but finally figured out where the author was going. The story line is great, but by the end of the 5th book the general direction and conclusion for each character was pretty predictable. All in all great stories to relax by, several unexpected twists, but not quite as riveting as I had hoped.
I typically don't like to read books that are part of a series because I get bored easily with the story lines. However, Karen Kingbury and Gary Smalley have written such interesting and real life stories that I haven't been able to put the books down. Rejoice is the 4th book in the series of 5 and I've completed it and started on the last book, Reunion. The entire Redemption Series gives real life application of Gods Word. The situations the family finds themselves in are real situations in today's world and seeing how each family member turns to God for guidance at trying times is a very real connection to the readers. I highly recommed this series!
In this book, the characters go through a lot of trials, but finds reasons to rejoice, as the title of the book suggests. Hayley falls nearly drowns, but Brooke, her mother rejoices in Hayley's little accomplishment. Then there is Luke and Reagan's wedding, which gives the family many reasons to rejoice. And then there is Irvel, the nursing home patient, who teaches Ashley so much about love.
Karen Kingsbury turns the ordinary and extrodinary experiences of life into stories that captivate her fans and display the grace of God in the failures of people. Rejoice is one of the many books about the Baxter family. While side stories of all five siblings continue, the pivitol plot follows Peter and Brooke as an accident to Hailey almost destorys the family. Read it alone or in order. It will not disappoint you.
