Some fiction can draw readers into a story like a strong magnet pulling towards metal.  Author Karen Kingsbury seems to have that power with a growing number of women.  She's a Christian author who seems to have an uncanny knack for growing stories and books from strands of plot started in an earlier book.

Kingsbury seems to really know her audience and what they want to read.  The plots are related in a context that can be understood by a lot of women.  They seem to always revolve around a message where Jesus Christ plays a central role.

My wife has read many or most of her books and the coming out of a new one is reason for a visit to Barnes and Noble.

By the way, this is my first experience in using a flickr photo on my blog.
