Shades of Blue – Karen Kingsbury

FIVE STARS FOR SHADES OF BLUE!! 

The cover looks great.

By the time I reached the middle of reading Shades of Blue I knew that Karen Kingsbury would be my next favorite author. 

I am so glad that I stumbled upon this book while searching through the shelves of my local library. I’ve never heard of Karen Kingsbury, but now I know she is a NY-Times best-selling author – Christian author at that and she has written more than 15 books. 

What I like most about her books(wait  a second I’m only on my second book written by her…lol whatever I’m sure I would say the something) is the Forever in Fiction, knowing that the characters are Christian and the proper/simple placements of scripture verses from the Bible. 

While reading Shades of Blue I think I related to it more than I thought I initially would. I guess it’s the forgiveness and moving on part the characters worked through that enabled me to relate to them. Although I have not been through the same situation, I feel like I can relate to what a few of the characters felt, regarding forgiving others and going through tough times with family members and friends. 

If you intend to read this book, there is a possibility that the words in some chapters may hit a few untouched memories or chapters in your own life, that will have you stop and think about a past or present situation. 

Lastly, an important topic throughout this book was abortion and the after affects of having an abortion. I personally am Pro – life and would not choose to have an abortion. Though I have not been in a situation where I would have to choose between abortion or not, I am still pro – life. It saddens me to see that some people take abortions lightly.Before I go on a rant about abortions I’m going to stop here.
