Karen Kingsbury – Two Weeks


From number one New York Times best-selling 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 toward 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 shes 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 mans 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 Elises 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 everyones plans.

Tender and deeply moving, Two Weeks is a story about love, faith, and what it really means to be a family.

bystander earnest

Karen Kingsbury is such a great writer. I was crying, feeling the pain and so caught up like it was my familys lives. When Cole was leaving for college it was just like I was there and I had watched him grow up.
Karen, keep writing and keep bringing us stories of love, tragedy, triumph and laughter!!!
