AboutIn This Moment:
As with most of Karen Kingsbury’s novels, In This Moment deals with several plotlines that unfold in a seamless fashion. The primary character, Wendell Quinn, is a dedicated high school principal struggling with how to get his students motivated and goal-oriented toward their futures. He decides on a voluntary program based on faith and Bible study, although he is well aware of potential repercussions in current society. He’s done his homework and contacts Luke Baxter for legal help when it becomes necessary. Other sub-plots cover domestic violence, stalking, gang violence, and work/life balance – topics taken from today’s headlines.
