Learning by Karen Kingsbury


Zondervan Publishing has Provided Me with A Complimentary Copy of this Book in exchange for a Review.

Bailey Flanigan is growing closer to her dream to be an actress and dancer in New York while Cody coaches a small high school football team . on and off the field. But neither feels complete without the chance to share their dreams with one other.
Can distance truly make the heart grow fonder? Or will Cody learn to turn to others to share in his happiness? And when tragedy strikes? Who will be there to provide comfort in the face of loss?

As Cody's past catches up with him, he must learn to reach out for help or risk withdrawing permanently inside himself. Both Bailey and Cody find themselves learning significant life lessons in this poignant love story, featuring members from Karen Kingsbury's popular Baxter family.

This is the second book in the “Bailey Flanigan Series” by Karen Kingsbury. I have read almost all of Karen’s books and they are GREAT. This book is no exception, it was so good, I have had a hard time putting it down. Bailey Flanigan is now in New York City and on the cast of “Hairspray” and she has to go through a lot of issues, I really felt sorry for her that this had to happen to her.

Then, in Indiana, Cody Coleman just falls into a new position, Coaching a High School Football team. He has gone on with his life and has to deal with his friend, Cheyenne Williams, in ICU at the hospital, but God brings him through this and realizes he has feelings for Chey. I won’t say anything more, it’s great how God works through Cody.

Landon and Ashley Blake are in part of the book also. Landon is having Lung problems and has to deal with issues relating to this. He has to lean a lot on Ashley’s family, the Baxters and him and Ashley have to deal with so much.
I will definitely suggest this book and this series to my friends and family.
