Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury comes the second novel in a brand-new series about divine intervention and second chances - the dramatic story of a woman desperate to find deeper meaning in her life.

Mary Catherine grew up in a comfortable life despite an array of health issues, including a congenital heart condition (which she quietly obsesses over). She loves her parents, who are quite wealthy, but the lifestyle never appealed to her. Instead she pursues meaning through an abundance of charity work, always giving away a part of herself in service of others.

After her project with a local youth center comes to an end, Mary Catherine decides to travel to Uganda on a mission to meet the two children she sponsors - and to find out if her donations are actually helping.

Accompanied by Tyler, Sami, and Marcus Dillinger, Mary Catherine arrives in Africa only to find a makeshift orphanage with 17 children and no one to care for them.

They return home with heavy hearts, and Mary Catherine knows there is more work to be done. Intent on returning to Africa, Mary Catherine quits her job and leaves a budding romance behind to fulfill her desire to help others.

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.

Couldn't stop listening

The narration was great, the story believable, making it difficult to put down. I will get the next in the series.

Chasing Sunsets Review

What a wonderful book!
I already have a strong faith but it's made me think more about angels,and their presence on earth. Also to watch & be more aware of people - especially strangers, & hope that one day I will also have an encounter with one!
Thank you

a great follow up

I really enjoyed following up on the characters from the first book. I enjoy the way the writer gets the message in the story across so that everyday people can connect on all levels. I am now looking forward to the next book in the series

Good reminder

Truly enjoyed the book. I'm a guy reader so every time I told someone I was reading this book they would say "sounds like a chic book". lol! It's easy to get attached to plot and most of all reminded me even after 13 yrs of marriage I still need to chase and love my wife with all my being. And... There is so much power in the name of Jesus!

Storyline good, but not enough substance

This book did not read as a complete story. It is a series, but too many loose ends. Storyline for certain characters was too developed to be left dangling for next book. This made the book seem hollow and unfulfilling.

I felt challenged.

So often I find myself saying tomorrow... next week, when I am prepared and the list goes on. This book truly challenged me to be present in my life and other people’s. I wonder how many opportunities I have missed, how many blessings have I not claimed? Have I ever been touched by an angel? From this moment I choose to be present in my life, claim the promises and rejoice in God’s plan for me, for my family. If the need arises I pray that angels will walk beside me to encourage me and strengthen my faith. What a precious book.
