A Time to Embrace by Karen Kingsbury

After coming so close to divorce and getting back together again, John and Abby are more in love than ever. But then a tragedy strikes them: a car accident that ends John's career as a coach. On top of that, their daughter is pregnant ahead of schedule.
The car accident doesn't happen until near the middle of the book, therefore causing the first half to be merely character reintroduction. At least most of the characters stayed true to their personalities. John and Abby seemed to have achieved hero personalities.
The book is mostly a journey of grief and asking God why. But Karen couldn't leave well enough alone. She just had to do it. She made the end work out perfectly. She did what the public wanted her to do. This book had the potential to be one of the best sequels ever, but she didn't do it.
Like I said about the first, it won't hurt you to read this one, especially if you're not looking for originality.
2 stars
