TO THE MOON AND BACK
Like I do every year, I wrote you a letter.
In case you come to the memorial today.
In case you want to find me as much as I want to find you.
It was the beginning of a letter not meant for Ashley Baxter Blake, but somehow she finds herself drawn to it. And to the handsome stranger who left it tucked in a chain-link fence for someone named Jenna. That man is Brady Bradshaw.
Brady was a child when the Oklahoma City bombing killed his mother. More than a decade ago, Brady met Jenna Phillips, whose parents were also killed in the attack. For a handful of beautiful hours, Brady and Jenna shared a deep heart connection.
But Brady never saw Jenna again. Now, a chance encounter leads Ashley to wonder if maybe she can help Brady find the girl he can't forget.
Ashley's family is skeptical. Should she spend so much time helping a man she's never met? Will her husband, Landon, understand her intentions? And can healing and love grow from the ashes of a shattered yesterday?
Deeply emotional and beautifully romantic, To the Moon and Back is an unforgettable stand-alone love story in the Baxter family collection. A story about hope, healing and what it means to survive.
Five Tissue Box Alert! (and then some!!)
What an exceptionally moving story! Much more than a romance, To the Moon and Back is also (and more importantly) God's love story for us. Kingsbury expertly weaves diverse lives together in powerful ways. My goosebumps had goosebumps in places. And I cried buckets as these characters learned that "God isn't the reason bad things happen. He's the rescue." The author illustrates that in numerous ways throughout the read. Nothing is random where He is concerned. I loved how the promptings of the Spirit moved different characters in different ways -- all to achieve a purpose that only a loving Father in Heaven can see clearly. Such a profoundly faith-inspiring read!
And yes, this is a short review for me but I'm so gobsmacked I'm at a loss for words. Really. You don't want to miss this story. It's a life changer.
