Having read a previous book by Robin Jones Gunn I had to read this one when I saw it. I also have all of her Glenbrooke series. I love the way Robin brings her characters to life and they have the same issues that a lot of young women can relate to. I felt like Katie was one of my friends. Even though this is the last book in the series, I was able to read it by itself. I do want to read the others to see how Katie's journey started, because I loved how it ended. This is a great book about finding yourself, and listening to your heart. It was an easy read and I read it in one sitting. I am giving this book a 4/5.
I also liked how the title fit the book!
I was given a copy to review from Night Owl Reviews, however all opinions are my own.
What was she thinking? Katie Weldon wonders if she was crazy to spontaneously fly off to Africa on a mission trip. Suddenly she is dealing with a new culture, a world she's never experienced---and Eli, a friend who is quickly becoming much more. It's all overwhelming ... and exciting. As her life turns topsy-turvy, however, she begins to think this might be exactly what she needs. Here, God might give her a glimpse into His will for her life. But just as Kenya and its people find a place in her heart, and her relationship with Eli begins to get serious, Katie is faced with unanswered questions from her past and unresolved issues with Eli. Is she really headed down the same path into the future he is? It doesn't look like it. Why can't she finally and forever settle into a set direction? Living in this new and captivating place, one thing she knows for sure: anything might be possible. Finally and Forever is the final book in the Katie Weldon Series.
