Genre: Christian Fiction
Summary (from Goodreads): From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes the second novel in the Angels Walking 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.
Now Mary Catherine lives in Los Angeles with her roommate, Sami, and volunteers at a local youth center with baseball coach Tyler Ames and LA Dodgers pitcher 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.
Review: I was getting bored with this book, so I put it down and picked up a different book instead, thinking that I just needed a break from the unrelenting goodness of the main character. Well, three months later, I had to return it to the library because I couldn't renew it any more, and I had never wanted to pick it up again. The characters seemed pretty stereotypical, and it was obvious how the story was going to end, but I have felt that way about other Christian fiction books and still enjoyed them. So I'm not quite sure why I couldn't get into this one, except to say that it seemed to be missing a spark.
