But when the actor takes a public fall that threatens his reputation, the producers must act as missionaries to save the film, their families, and the young movie star.

My Review:
How can I write a review when it feels like I am saying goodbye to my family? I truly can’t without tears in my eyes! Once again, Karen Kingsbury has concluded another one of her wonderful Life-Changing Fiction and it will be forever in my mind, soul and heart. 

In this amazing conclusion to Above the Line series, we get glimpses of the past and the future in these families. On top of all that we feel God’s arms wrap around us and promise us wonderful new things, evening if we have to say goodbye when it hurts more than anything. I truly loved the Ellison family’s story in this book, as well as Bailey and Cody’s struggles. I just didn’t want this to end at all! By the end of this powerful book I had tears in my eyes and, deep down in my heart, I know that we will get glimpses of these amazing characters in Karen’s future books. I just don’t want to wait that long. 

Again, a strong and powerful book written by a woman that God guides her hands, we see the messages of redemption, faith unshattered and hope for a brighter tomorrow. I love that and I know that you will too. When I reached the end of the book, I felt hope for a brighter tomorrow. Hope that I can rise above any storm with God by my side and be a better person for it. Thank you, Karen, for that! 

Please, read Take Four. I recommend this book with 5 stars and two thumbs to you. It is best if you read it in the series but if not, please read it….especially if you are going through a hard time right now. It will show you that YOU are bigger than any storm with God on your side! I am anxiously awaiting October’s arrival for the release of Unlocked, Karen Kingsbury’s next release with hope that we will get a glimpse of the families I have come to think of as my own!
