I didn't find this book to reflect the Christian life at all.
God's plan for you is not about having men (yes, plural) in love with you....
Baily is not like any young Christian female I've ever met in my Church....attractive, popular, a success in her career with a large, loving family.
We're not in Heaven yet, we're on the battlefield until Jesus returns.
I can also see some of the other commentators have posted the words, 'perfect one'.
That just makes me cringe and shudder.
That's a recipe for a divorce...(sorry but)....a marriage can't survive on you and your partner's perfection (or being close to it).
It takes hard work, sacrifice and a whole lot of forgiveness.

This was a very good final book in the series. The love story based on Faith and love of God is very beautiful!

Bailey must choose between two loves. This is the fourth in the series. I thought the book was ok. Kingsbury reveals Bailey's soon to be husband 3/4 of the way through the book. It was really drawn out in my opinion. But we also learn that Brandon had issues with his family .
But I agree, the book is a great read for teens. It reminds us women that we are worth waiting on and being treated well and with respect. And for anyone who read one of the other books in the series, the Beetle (car) is introduced again in this book somehow through a character named Andie. I wonder if the author forgot about it and added it by mistake?

This book was alright, not outstanding. I wouldn't give it anymore than 3 out of 5 stars.
The romance was somewhat convincing but yet had no depth.

I really like the idea of a man fighting for the woman he loves. However, I found this book overly sappy in too many instances where people were 'lost in each other's eyes' it became rather stale and uneffective. its like the author was trying so hard to convince the reader that Bailey was soo in love with who she ended up marrying. IT was forced
I will add that I rather enjoyed how Karen K *( lightly) penned the temptations couples face while dating. I find that it is hard to sometimes discuss this without crossing over some *propriety* line, but she did it alright.
Lastly I like how she shows the development of the characters relationship with God..although I do not agree with "sinners prayer salvation", the issue of the lost need for salvation is encouraging and comforting to read about.

Awesome book a must read. Great for girls to read. it would kinda be a good idea to start with the first book from this series.which is Learning, then leaving, then longing, then this book.
but you dont have to. You should also check out her other books.She is a great author. This book will teach girls to wait on the perfect one.

This story displays love in the best way you could ever see! It will teach a girl to wait on the perfect one! Or perhaps you are already marride it will show you how to love even more than you do!

this is the final chapter in the Bailey Flanigan series that has captured the hearts and time of Karen Kingsbury fans
In this book you will discover who actually becomes Bailey's groom. Will it be her Stud of an Ex COdy? or her current famous pretty-boy boyfriend Brandon which whom she's having second thoughts about?

I did not read all the rest of the Bailey series so the romance was alright for me. however, I am absolutely sure that If i read the rest of the series prior to this one, I would be very disappointed with the ending like many other fans of this series.
