69.       Coming Home: A Story of Undying Hope by Karen Kingsbury In this conclusion to the Baxter saga the Baxter family suffers a tragedy during a family get together.  The way that the family handles the tragedy is unrealistic, even for Christians.  Anyone who has suffered such a tragedy will start to question God and that is not shown in this book.  The family is not showing going through the grieving process they seem to accept it quickly sometimes too quickly.  At this time all of the Baxters are either upper or upper middle class and they are not struggling financially which does make it easier to believe in God.  Also Ashley is dreading having to face her past with her oldest son Cole starting to ask questions about his biological father.  The issue with three of Erin's girls birth mother coming back into the picture brings another complication to the story.  The less privileged girl's birth mother and even their own grandmother are portrayed as being greedy and not really concerned about the girls well being.  While the more well off Erin and her husband Sam are portrayed as being better parents for the girls.  There is too much going on in the book for the timing to work out for the length of the book, the book does feel rushed at times.
