Karen Kingsbury in her new book, “Chasing Sunsets book coverChasing Sunsets” Book Two in the Angels Walking series published by Howard Books takes us into the life of Mary Catherine.

From the back cover:   From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes the second novel in a brand-new series about divine intervention and the trials and triumphs of life—the dramatic story of a woman desperate to find deeper meaning in her life.

Growing up in a comfortable home, Mary Catherine wanted for nothing. Though she loves her wealthy parents, their lifestyle never appealed to her. Instead, Mary Catherine pursues meaning through charity work, giving away a part of herself but never giving away her heart.

Mary Catherine lives in Los Angeles with her roommate, Sami, and volunteers at a local youth center with coach Tyler Ames and LA Dodger Marcus Dillinger. Despite Mary Catherine’s intention to stay single, she finds herself drawing close to Marcus, and their budding romance offers an exciting life she never dreamed of. That is, until she receives devastating news from her doctor. News that alters her future and forces her to make a rash decision.

Inspirational and moving, Chasing Sunsets is the story of one woman’s deep longings of the soul, and the sacrifices she’s willing to make in search of healing.

I believe Angels Walking is a trilogy. In the first book, “Angels Waiting” we were introduced to Mary Catherine, Marcus, Sami and Tyler. Now the focus is on Mary Catherine and Marcus. Just a reminder:  God tells us He has given His angels charge over us and that is what happens in this series. The angels are there to guide and help these characters along. What is neat is that all the characters represent us. What happens to them happens to all of us in a way, and all of us really need the help of angels. so this series fits in perfectly there. Keep in mind if there are angels in the story then, by necessity, there must be demons and spiritual warfare. Issues of faith, health issues and loss and love fill the pages.  Ms. Kingsbury has given us a great ride in this book and she has provided us with wonderful characters that we rally around and root for.
