    Karen Kingsbury, #1 New York Times bestselling novelist, is America’s favorite inspirational storyteller, with more than twenty-five million copies of her award-winning books in print. Her last dozen titles have topped bestseller lists and many of her novels are under development with Hallmark Films and as major motion pictures. Her Baxter Family books are being developed into a TV series slated for major network viewing sometime in the next year. Karen is also an adjunct professor of writing at Liberty University. In 2001 she and her husband, Don, adopted three boys from Haiti, doubling their family in a matter of months. Today the couple has joined the ranks of empty nesters, living in Tennessee near five of their adult children.


    The Baxters series includes the Redemption, Firstborn, Sunrise, Above the Line, Bailey Flanigan, and The Baxter Family series.

    Coming Home is a "stand-alone novel" that has major spoilers for the other Baxter family books and should be read after the 22 books published before it.

    Redemption Series
    The first Baxter Family series.


    Book 1: Redemption

    Book 2: Remember

    Book 3: Return

    Book 4: Rejoice

    Book 5: Reunion

    The Redemption series won "Christian Retailing"’s 2005 Retailer’s Choice Award for Best Series! When Kari Baxter Jacobs finds out that her husband is involved in an adulterous relationship and wants a divorce, she decides she will love him and remain faithful to her marriage at all costs. This book shows how God can redeem seemingly hopeless relationships, and it illustrates one of Gary Smalley’s key messages: Love is a decision. "Redemption" is the first book in the five-book Redemption series that Gary and Karen will write about the Baxter family—their fears and desires, their strengths and weaknesses, their losses and victories. Each book will explore key relationship themes as well as the larger theme of redemption, both in characters’ spiritual lives and in their relationships. Each book includes study questions for individual and small-group use as well as a “teaser” chapter of the next book in the series.

    Firstborn Series
    The second Baxter Family series.

    All of the books in this series should be read in numerical order due to the continuing story lines. Also, this series should be read after the Redemption series, the first Baxter family series. This series contains many spoilers for the Redemption series.
