Take Two -Review

Take Two is the second book in Karen Kingsbury’s Above The Line series.  I am a big fan of series, and as I mentioned in the review for Take One, this is the fourth series, so there are some of the same characters we’ve been following for awhile & are familiar with.

In this book, we continue to follow Andi as she figured out what her own faith looks like when she lives across the country from her parents.  While not always making the “right” choices, the choices she makes (I felt) were very true to those that a girl in her situation would make.

The other central character in the book, is a wife & mother of two small children, whose husband is out of the house for weeks at a time due to his hectic schedule in the movie making business.  Again, there is a certain realness to her character that is refreshing in the Christian fiction genre.  When her husband is gone, she resorts to eating junk food much of the time & just has a real difficulty coping with managing the household on a very limited budget while her partner is away, and for the most part, unavailable to her.

I would definitely recommend these books.  It seems to step away a little bit from the predictability that has been present in the first three series, and is shaping up to be a very realistic series.
