But it may surprise—and delight—readers to find how well she knows grown-ups too.

You want to begin as close as possible to the story's catalyst, that moment in which your character's life changes from ordinary to extraordinary, and the plot takes off. Let's look at some examples. The first page Imogene's Antlers , a picture book by David Small, reads: On Thursday, when Imogene woke up, she found she had grown antlers. Imogene's untroubled reaction, reinforced by the illustrations, is just as intriguing as the antlers sprouting from her head. Barbara Seuling's chapter book, Oh No, It's Robert, dives right into the type of conflict the main character will face: Robert Dorfman hated math.

He hated it more than going to the dentist, or eating liver, or cleaning his room. And the first chapter of Richard Peck's novel A Long Way from Chicago ages sets the time and place in a manner that's undeniably gripping: You wouldn't think we'd have to leave Chicago to see a dead body. We were growing up there back in the bad old days of Al Capone and Bugs Moran. Just the winter before, they'd had the St. The city had such an evil reputation that the Thompson submachine gun was better know as a "Chicago typewriter. Go on a low-modifier diet. A few adjectives and adverbs are fine, but if you feel you must pack your sentences with modifiers, you're not getting the most out of your nouns and verbs.

Strong verbs not only show action, they can also convey physical and emotional qualities. She went across the street only tells the reader that a character moved; adverbs are necessary to provide more information went slowly, went quickly, went reluctantly. However, if you replace went with a more specific verb, that one word contains all the subtext you need She trudged across the street. She scampered across the street. She stumbled across the street.

Similarly, strong, exact nouns paint a particular picture in the reader's mind. Adjectives such as big, little, beautiful, nice, old and great are too general to be of much use. All Sam's friends thought he lived in a big, beautiful house doesn't show the reader how big, or how beautiful, Sam's house really is. Sam lived in a castle, or at least that's what his friends thought gives the reader a specific point of reference, and also shows the contrast between Sam and his friends.

Reveal character with descriptions. Descriptions should reveal how your protagonist operates within the setting of the story, or feels about the other characters. If the action stops cold so you can wax poetic about a sunset, then the description is more about you than your main character. You have to remain invisible -- interpret all details through the eyes of your protagonist. If your character is familiar with the book's locale, she won't remark upon the setting as if seeing it for the first time.

I wiped my hands on my apron and went to the window. Outside, the prairie reached out and touched the places where the sky came down. Though winter was nearly over, there were patches of snow and ice everywhere. I looked at the long dirt road that crawled across the plains, remembering the morning that Mama had died, cruel and sunny. MacLachlan's verbs -- reached out, touched, crawled -- are gentle, reflecting Anna's love of her home. But the setting is also infused with loss. Because Anna sees more than just prairie when she looks out the window, the words embody her backstory as well as her surroundings.

Since picture books have illustrations on every page, their text contains very little description. But something doesn't feel right. Cody is always on her mind. When his mom calls them to let the family know Cody is missing in action in Iraq, he is more often on their minds and in their prayers. Cody miraculously escapes his captors, but is shot.

Jewish Lights: Adam & Eve's First Sunset: God's New Day

When he finally comes back to Indiana, Bailey is the first one to see him and his injury, a prosthetic on his lower left leg. It's without a doubt that Bailey and Cody have something between them that is very special. John Baxter marries Elaine Denning. We are caught up in John's emotions about making this next step. It is very difficult to know if getting remarried is the right thing to do since John loved his first wife Elizabeth so much.

But through Elizabeth's letters, John knows he's doing the right thing. He's living his life that God gave him to the fullest, and he is happy. The last part of the book ties up lose ends and brings a happy resolution to all. Katy and Dayne have Sophie Kathleen. Ashley and Landon are surprised when Janessa Belle comes into their lives When everyone is back home another surprise awaits Ashley.

The family thinks John sold the Baxter family home so he could move into a new home with Elaine. But when Landon's grandfather passed away, he is surprised to receive a check that makes him able to buy the Baxter home for his family! I'm so happy the home is able to stay within the family!! Dayne and Katy are starting a new chapter, re-opening CKT in their hometown and getting ready to welcome a new baby into their life. Life without Hollywood is pretty sweet: Jim has taken a job with an NFL team nearby, and all seems to be going well. Bailey really misses Cody though, and she's confused by another growing friendship.

John Baxter's getting ready for a wedding as he marries his dear friend Elai Dayne and Katy are starting a new chapter, re-opening CKT in their hometown and getting ready to welcome a new baby into their life. John Baxter's getting ready for a wedding as he marries his dear friend Elaine. He deals with lingering emotions of guilt and begins attempting a real chance at a new beginning.

This book is one that ties up many of the ongoing storylines in the Baxter series.

Adam & Eve's First Sunset

It allows us to get a sense of closure and to move on from their stories into new stories. I like many of the closures of the storylines, and I truly enjoyed this book. I'm going to quickly go through the major characters to give you a picture of them, and don't forget there will probably be spoilers, so if you don't want spoilers, now is the time to stop reading. He sells the Baxter house, weds Elaine and truly starts a new chapter in his life in this book.

He does it with some sadness and reflection. He still feels a little survivors guilt, but his love for Elaine and his joy in life shine through. It's a beautiful mix, and he is one of my favorite Baxter characters. She finds out that she's pregnant again. She really struggles with fear for her baby and the feeling that she could not have another baby die. Not to worry though. She gets a very happy ending, and a sense that her family is full of love.

His marriage to Reagan struggles most of the book. In fact, the word divorce is thrown around as a real possibility. It takes most of the book for him to realize that the root of their problems as a couple is the fact that they have never dealt with their feelings about the night of September 10, Dealing with their lingering guilt and feelings there will be the only way they can both truly move on without just putting a band-aid over the problem.

Things are blissful for her. She's directing CKT again. This is exactly where she wants to be. Things are right with Dayne again. This whole book is her and Dayne's finally happily ever after.

She's excited about CKT, but everywhere she turns, she misses Cody. She begins a friendship with Tim Reed, and that helps some, but right now there is only one person for her in life, and that's Cody. As always, he supports Ashley's crazy. He's loving, kind and unfailingly giving to his bride and to his boys.

He deals with the pain of losing his grandfather, and with concerns over whether or not his newest addition will be healthy, but he's a rock.

He reminds me of my own husband: She spends much of this book angry at Luke, guilty still over events that happened years before and not truly willing to fix the problems. It takes some time for her to turn around, but when she does face her guilt and her pain, she finds that it gives her the strength to finally be the girl that Luke fell in love with so many years ago. I love seeing the shedding of her guilt and her forgiveness of both Luke and herself in this book.

It feels like she took off a pound weight. She is always there to support her husband, her sons and her daughter. We see reflected through Jenny's character her concerns about Bailey, and also her realization of how perfect Bailey and Cody are together. We see her love for Cody as well, and her concern over him as if he were her son too. Kari spends much of her point-of-view time in this book with a really old loose end in the series. She finds herself being a counselor to Angela Manning after Angela has attempted suicide. Because of God, she is able to truly know that she has forgiven Angela and she is able to show Jesus to Angela.

Although I find this plot line to be kind of indulgent and unnecessary by the author, it is a beautiful way to illustrate how the love of Jesus leads us to forgiving others. He finally finds some peace and stability in his life. He is taking a break from Hollywood, is expecting his first child and is helping Katy with much of the running of CKT. It's nice to see his life so peaceful because his drama has dominated so many of the Baxter books. He serves in Iraq.

We get to see this through his eyes. He is recovered, but he loses part of one of his legs, making him a disabled veteran. He struggles with loving Bailey, but with the feelings that he's not good enough for her. His storyline and Bailey's storyline are still unresolved, and will continue in future books, but their hug at the front door when he comes home after being injured is a rich payoff in that storyline.

So, after reading fourteen books in this series, these characters have become very real to me. This is not my favorite of the Baxter books, but it is a good, solid entry. I imagine that I will be starting the Above the Line series of the Baxter drama continuation soon enough, but I'm going to take a little break and read a non-fiction book or two before I continue through these novels since I'm at a good stopping place.

Mar 17, Corinna rated it really liked it. I've really enjoyed every single Karen Kingsbury novel I've read so far which thus far would just be this sunrise series. As usual, she didn't disappoint with the final book in the Sunrise series. Kingsbury fabulously wrapped up all the threads left from the previous novels--Bailey graduates high school and the relationships between both she and Tim, and her and Cody come to compelling conclusions which ironically, are also beginning's.

Ashley's grief over losing baby Sarah and fear of carry I've really enjoyed every single Karen Kingsbury novel I've read so far which thus far would just be this sunrise series. Ashley's grief over losing baby Sarah and fear of carrying subsequent children is rectified. Ashley and Landon Baxter Blake are shocked to learn they're expecting a new baby, because of what happened to Sarah.

They are relived to find out this baby is healthy. Meanwhile, John Baxter is getting ready to marry Elaine. The whole family is excited; even Erin and her family are coming back to Bloomington for the occasion. Ashley has a baby girl, and they name her Janessa Belle. Dayne and Katy also have a little girl at the end of the book, and they named her Sophie. Can't wait to read more Bax Ashley and Landon Baxter Blake are shocked to learn they're expecting a new baby, because of what happened to Sarah. Can't wait to read more Baxter books!

See a Problem?

I have always loved every Karen Kingsbury book. I didn't realize this was a continuation of a family series for the Baxters so I read this first instead of reading it last however it doesn't really matter I picked up on the storyline very quickly and so many parts of the series made me cry make me laugh I'm sorry to see that it ended. May 23, Sara Fite rated it really liked it Shelves: This book was the conclusion to the Baxter series, and it wrapped up all the individual story lines with a neat little bow.

I loved every part of this book, except one thing didn't make sense to me and it caused me to give the book 4 stars instead of 5.

Access Check

The last books have focused so much on Dayne and Katy getting scrutiny from the press, I am curious how they managed to have a baby without a single paparazzi knowing. I felt like that was extremely against everything we know of Dayne's life This book was the conclusion to the Baxter series, and it wrapped up all the individual story lines with a neat little bow.

I felt like that was extremely against everything we know of Dayne's life and that it was bad writing. Jul 18, Stephanie Dulac rated it it was amazing. Oct 24, Sharon Hart rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jun 25, Vicky rated it really liked it. A good, satisfying way to end the Sunrise Series. Sep 13, Shaelea rated it really liked it. The Best ending yet I love how everything flows in this book.
