In between a checkered past and a fairy-tail future, Brad has to make a decision.
  Indiancreek | Dec 13, 2017 |
This is a moving book dealing with a struggle a lot of young Christians go through and the consequences of sin. Karen Kingsbury handles this subject very well and in her letter at the end tells us that it was based on a song I didn't know, but she changed it a bit to have the people be Christian. Although the book is seven years old, I pray more people read it and are either discouraged from falling into sin or healed of past mistakes. ( )

Parting is such sweet sorrow.... especially when there are unresolved issues. Before the next chapter of life can be written, the previous one(s) have to be closed -- hurts have to be mended, forgiveness has to be sought / given, etc. This is one such story... a love story, but it is also a life story. As with all of Kingsbury's books, this one is also a sniffler. ( )

Shades of Blue by Karen Kingsbury
Brad Culler has it all, a fairytale life ahead of him. but the ad campaign he hopes to win for the company sets him to his past.
He recalls his past and thinks of Holden Beach, NC and know he needs to talk to Emma Landon before his life can go forward.
He is to be married as the days get closer to his life with Lauren James.
He has much faith in God in helping direct him to do the right thing.
The story also follows Emma and her daughter, now 9 year old as she is the teacher.
Frankie is a girl that she teaches that has a rare blood disease and she tolerates the pain it causes.
Lots of scriptures that lead to the answers they need.
Love how the book got it's title. ( )

A story of lost innocence that brought tears to my eyes. I found myself crying with these two people who had alot of issues to deal with and a need to find forgiveness. It is a story that touches on the heartache that abortion can bring in the lives of people, long after the act is done. I was moved by the heartache and the love that was lost by two people who in a moment of weakness, made some wrong decisions. Years later they need to "finish that chapter" of their lives, so they can move on and fnd peace and happiness. A story very well written, a story with a real good message for those thinking of aborting a child and a story I highly recommend you read with a box of tissues at your side. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031026622X, Paperback)

In between a checkered past and a fairytale future, a decision awaits. Brad Cutler, twenty-eight, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all---a great career, a beautiful and loving fiancee, and a fairy tale life ahead of him ... when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him. Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: He must go back to the shores of Holden Beach in search of his first love, and a forgiveness neither of them has ever known. Three people must work through the repercussions of a decision made long ago before any of them can look toward a new future.
