New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury – the “queen of inspirational fiction” ( Time) – is acclaimed for poignant, uplifting novels like Waiting for Morning. This compelling novel paints a moving portrait of a heartbroken widower and a jilted bride, thrust together by their Down syndrome siblings.
When rodeo champion Cody Gunner returns to Colorado Springs, he has no intention of keeping his deathbed promise to his beloved wife – to love again. But when his concern for his brother, Carl, takes him to the Independent Learning Center, he sees how much Carl and his fellow Down syndrome students are progressing. He also notices their teacher, Elle Downs, who glows with such infectious joy and inner beauty that he almost forgets their philosophical differences.
