Overview
A New York Times bestseller
Karen Kingsbury's most beloved characters are back
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes A Baxter Family Christmas, a life-changing story of love and hope featuring the Baxter family.
Whether you're meeting the Baxter family for the first time, or finding them all over again...A Baxter Family Christmas will leave fingerprints on your heart forever.
Two years have passed since the terrible car accident that took the life of John Baxter's daughter, Erin, her husband and three of their four daughters. Prompted by grief, and missing his daughter, John has invited a stranger for Christmas Eve dinner--Kendra Bryant, the transplant recipient who now has Erin's heart.
In light of their father's idea, Ashley and her brother Luke don't think it's right. They want to protect their ten-year-old niece, Amy--the only surviving member of the accident. But John is determined and believes meeting this woman is something his deceased daughter would want.
At the same time, Maddie West, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Brooke Baxter West, is praying for meaning this Christmas. Could she find it in a newfound friendship with a boy she never expected to see again? Maddie believes in miracles, especially at Christmastime, but this is a stretch even she can't imagine.
Meanwhile, Kendra Bryant has been struggling these past few years to find purpose in the tragedy that gave her a second chance. She believes the invitation to see the Baxters and witness their unwavering faith in God can instill peace and happiness back into her life.
Heartwarming and touching, filled with love and redemption, A Baxter Family Christmas brings together two families in the aftermath of loss and in the midst of an unfolding love story, all with the help of one very special child.

Kingsbury, author of over fifty novels, including more than twenty about the Baxters, a sprawling family of several generations led by the upstanding Christian patriarch John, delivers another uplifting tale in time for Christmas. For those unfamiliar with the Baxter family, beginning with this book can feel like walking into the large and lively gathering of your new love interests family for the first time bewildering, raucous, but ultimately warm and loving. And thats pretty close to what happens in the story. Years after the fatal car accident of Johns daughter Eric, an organ transplant recipient who received Erins heart joins the Baxters for Christmas with her husband. Kendra and Moe are atheists whom none of the Baxters have met before. So, Johns inviting them to join the family for their special holiday gathering is too much for some individuals to bear. Would it be too much for ten-year-old Amy, whose mothers heart Kendra has? Rifts are acknowledged, reconciliation sought, and faith tested, all in the context of a vibrant, if traditional, Christianity that will satisfy Kingsbury fans, old and new. (Oct.)
