Three years have come and gone since the horrible reality that was 9/11. Jamie and Sierra are adjusting to life without Jake, and Jamie finds comfort in volunteering at the memorial chapel across from where the towers once proudly stood. The pain of Jake's death is slowly easing, and as she is beginning to open her heart to others, she feels a connection with a police officer she meets from Los Angelos.
Jamie is stunned to discover that the police officer from LA is actually Eric Michael's brother, Clay. Eric was a man she never wanted to see again after presuming him to be her firefighter husband, Jake. Devastated by what feels like the double loss of her beloved Jake, she is crushed to find out that Clay is Eric's brother. Will Clay and Jamie be able to overlook the past? Or will Eric forever remind Jamie of everything she has lost and rob her of a joyful future?
This was a wonderful sequel to "One Tuesday Morning." While the whirlwind relationship between Jamie and Clay seems a little sudden, it has been known to happen. Seeing Jamie go from the pain of loosing her forever sweetheart, to walking the path of healing was amazing to read in the pages of a book. Kingsbury always manages to draw her readers in, and suck them into her story. This follow-up novel is no different, and I enjoyed every word, every sentence, and every page. An enjoyable read that anyone and everyone can enjoy.

Review 2 for Beyond Tuesday Morning
BEST BOOK EVER!!!
Date:July 17, 2012
This is possibly the best book I've ever read. The first book, "One Tuesday Morning" was absolutely wonderful, and a box of Kleenex is a necessary companion. But this book, the sequel, was superb. Finding out "the rest of the story" was so exciting. You can't help but get involved in the lives of these people. Be sure to check out book 3 as well, "Remember Tuesday Morning". Best series ever!
This is one of the best books i have ever read! Its story just got me hooked! It was given to me by a friend to read and we have ended up passing it through everyone in our family including my 16 yr old neice who loved it! It made me stop and think of things i havent in a long time! This is truly one of the best books i have ever read!
I have to say I never read the first book, but I absolutely LOVED this one. It was so dramatic, and romantic, I was held captive, I didn't want to put it down. I love how Jamie gets married to Clay. They are so perfect for each other. I have also read Karen Kingsburys Oceans Apart, also another good read, but in some parts very sad. I would recommend these books to anyone.
I purchased the first book and this sequel at the same time and was able to read them in order. Karen's books are amazing - the stories are full of believable people that are caught in situations we can relate to. This book deals with the aftermath of September 11th and I could not put this book down. I felt the characters emotions so strongly I cried all the way through. I was inspired by Jamie's (the main character) struggle to move on and how she finally realized God is at the heart of everything. It is an incredible story - told very well with compassion and grace and faith. Just a wonderful read.
