Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury

When a drunk driver causes a wreck in the middle of the interstate, he ends the lives of a father and his daughter. Left behind on earth are his wife and other daughter.
The wife immediately plunges herself into the lawsuit against the drunk driver and joins several coalitions against drunk driving. While she is doing this, her daughter that's still alive plunges deeper and deeper into depression and eventually attempts suicide.
This book is definitely one of Karen's best. There are many imperfect, believable characters. The only perfect character I can think of is the lawyer who also forms the male side of the inevitable romantic subplot. This romantic subplot is probably what is keeping this book off the Elite List. But what is a Karen Kingsbury book without one?
All in all, this book is very interesting and entertaining to read.
3.5 stars
