Description

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 Kingsbury's newest novel, "Two Weeks" is incredible! I can't even begin to put into words how much I loved this book! The intensity of emotions from all the characters; the unwavering faith that got them through; the Baxter's...ahh...I love them even more!!! AND...August 14th is my birthday! (if you read this book you'll know what I'm talking about-lol) Seriously, I couldn't put it down, except during the last chapter...I had no choice, I couldn't see to read through my tears! So get your tissues ready, this book is one of Karen Kingsbury’s best!

This story is wonderful. Of all the many books that Karen Kingsbury has written, I think this is her most important one and has the most potential to influence lives. She tackles the difficult issue of teen pregnancy and the impact on family and friends. But more importantly, Karen Kingsbury has given a clarion call for choosing to save the baby’s life by rejecting abortion. There is such compassion in this story for Elise, the young teenage mother who must difficult decisions about her baby. The author leads us through her decision making process as Elise considers abortion, adoption, or keeping the baby. Her emotions are treated with respect, but clearly show her inner turmoil of weighing the best options for herself as compared to the best options for the baby’s future. As Elise makes her final decision to put the baby up for adoption, she has a two week option to change her mind once the baby is born. Her chosen adoptive parents, Aaron and Lucy, have not only experienced the loss of their own child, but also the loss of an adoptive child during a waiting period time. Their story is a heart-tugging one, and we experience their difficult decisions, too. Daring to put their hearts on the line once more to have the chance to adopt a baby is a difficult decision that they must make. There’s also a call for foster parenting in the storyline of Theo and Alma. They experience great tragedy and foster parenting would seem to be the last thing they’d consider. All of these storylines meet together and become a story that will keep you reading to the conclusion. A note to the faithful readers of the Baxter Family series: DO NOT miss this book as it focuses on Landon, Ashley, and Cole. Their family comes together to help Elise, and Cole’s story is a major part of this book. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
