From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a heart-wrenching and redemptive new story in the Baxter Family series about a couple desperately waiting to bring their adopted child home and a young mother about to make the biggest decision of her life. Cole Blake, son of Landon and Ashley Baxter Blake, is months away from going off to college and taking the first steps towards his dream—a career in medicine. But as he starts his final semester of high school he meets Elise, a mysterious new girl who captures his attention—and heart—from day one. Elise has her heart set on mending her wild ways and rediscovering the good girl she used to be. But not long after the semester starts, she discovers she’s pregnant. Eighteen and alone, she shares her secret with Cole. Undaunted by the news, and in love for the first time in his life, Cole is determined to support Elise—even if it means skipping college, marrying her, and raising another man’s baby. When Elise decides to place her baby up for adoption, she is matched with Aaron and Lucy Williams, who moved to Bloomington, Indiana to escape seven painful years of infertility. But as Elise’s due date draws near, she becomes focused on one truth: she has two weeks to change her mind about the adoption. With Cole keeping vigil and Lucy and Aaron waiting to welcome their new baby, Elise makes an unexpected decision—one that changes everyone’s plans. Tender and deeply moving, Two Weeks is a story about love, faith, and what it really means to be a family.

Karen writes a good story, but her style becomes more soapish in style and YA in tone all the time. Read this book after reading a couple other thngs and was just struck by how juvenile it sounded. Will probably keep reading her least the Baxter stuff.

To be honest I found the book rather cloying for the first little while. Then the baby entered the scene - a baby wanted by three couples; and i couldn't put the book down. It was at about page 200 that the significance of the title, "Two Weeks" shone through. When a birth mother puts up her baby for adoption, she has two weeks time to change her mind. Kingsbury has written beautifully about the emotions of the couples in these two weeks and I was in tears by the time the book ended.

A novel that will appeal only to Jerry Falwell Jr. fans, IMHO.

Karen writes another wonderful story! It captivated me from page one and did not want to put it down. Her faith in God shines brightly in her stories always. I am so thankful for her. She has been such am encouragement to me in my Christian walk.
