REVIEW: Every Now and Then by Karen Kingsbury

“Every Now and Then” by Karen Kingsbury is the third installment of her beautifully written 9/11 Series. Being a native New Yorker, myself, I am especially touched by these stories and the people they represent. This fictional tale is about Alex Brady, whose father was a FDNY firefighter killed on that fateful day. Alex has made it his mission to take down terrorists as a law enforcement officer. He has never healed from his father’s death, and left everyone he loved behind in New York when he moved to California. Holly loved Alex back in high school, but she was unable to get through to him after the tragedy. Now that they’re both in California, will Holly be able to finally get through to Alex and help him heal? Or is Alex beyond hope of recovery?

Karen Kingsbury is one of the master storytellers of our generation! Her characters breathe, her situations have color and sound and smell. When you pick up one of her books, you are transported and transformed. The tears that her stories incite are cathartic. Her message is always timeless and thought-provoking. And this book is one outstanding read!
