After textile tycoon G.R. Logan lays off a longtime employee who dies weeks later, the man's son plans revenge, and when menacing messages threaten the lives of two teenage girls, the citizens of Baxter struggle to cope.

Publishers Description
One man's hatred sets off a community crisis in a chilling page-turning read that is also startlingly inspirational. Textile magnate G. R. Logan lays off a thirty-year employee who dies weeks later, and the man's son means to make Logan pay. In her second novel in the dramatic Baxter series, Kathy Herman unleashes a kidnapper's unresolved anger and explores the honest depths of a believer's anger at God. Sinister messages threaten the lives of two teenage girls while the citizens of Baxter struggle to cope with the evil that plagues this once-peaceful town. How will they react when they learn who's responsible? Can anything break their cycle of bitterness?

Good.  Jun 3, 2008
DAY OF RECKONING is the second novel in The Baxter Series by Kathy Herman. When the Logan Textile plant closed five years ago, it was upsetting to the community and its workers. Feeling betrayed by the young G.R. Logan, who closed the plant so he could using cheaper labor in Costa Rica and raise his revenue, someone decides he should be punished. When G.R.'s daughter and her best friend are kidnapped, the town is shocked. When they find out it's payback for the plant closure, a mixture of feelings surface. But in all, the small town of Baxter is horrified to think these two girls are going to pay for the sins of the father.

DAY OF RECKONING has an interesting premise. Just how deep can resentment and hate go before it yields bitterness that leads to destruction? I enjoyed DAY OF RECKONING though at times I feel the dialog was a bit stilted. Sherry Kinnsington came across as a teenage super Christian. At times I felt it was a bit distracting, but in the end, I saw the purpose it served. Overall, I've enjoyed getting to know the characters of the small town of Baxter and will continue on to VITALS SIGNS, the third book in the series.

 
This book will make you search yourself.  Apr 29, 2005
This book was one of the hardest, yet most compelling, books of fiction I've read in a long time. Her demonstration of emotion on the written page is truly a gift. My husband couldn't understand why I kept reading ....... and reading. I couldn't help myself. I also felt the need to examine my own life looking for anger. Thank you for your ministry to the human soul and your efforts to share the gospel.

This novel follows the kidnapping of two young girls, and eventually (surprisingly) one of their deaths and the wonderful outcome because of it.

Ms. Herman does much to dispell the myth of "coincidence" helping to subtly show that there is no such thing! That the Lord is in control of our lives and has a plan for each of us.

Yep, it IS preachy at times. But it also very informative about what it means to KNOW Jesus.
 
A very touching story that will give you chills.  Jan 17, 2005
This book was very good. Its about two girls who are best friends. Both of the girls get kidnapped as the result of a revenge plot against one of the girl's father. As this event shakes the community and their faith, the girls rely in their faith in God to help them through their terror. This book was defitely better then the first one, you will be surprised by the ending.
 
Thought Provoking  Jul 9, 2004
Very good book, i found it too "preachy" at times. Very good story plot, amazing how faith plays into the crisis in lives. Definitely recommend the book, but you need to be able to get through to "preaching" that sometimes occurs in unnecessary places.
 
You've got to read this one...  Jun 16, 2004
I have found few Christian authors brave enough to tender the toughest places in our lives. Kathy Herman not only does so, but she does so with a powerful characterization that changes the soul.

Day of Reckoning is a book you MUST read.
