Sunset Lullaby

I’d like to tell you a story.

BABY YEARS - Presale Sunset Lullaby - Wide Banner

When I was writing Sunset Lullaby, the 3rd book in the Christy & Todd: The Baby Years series, I had serious back issues. I finished the last few chapters lying on my stomach with my arms extended to the laptop keyboard.

One afternoon my husband heard me sobbing. He ran into my office to see me stretched out on the floor. I couldn’t stop crying. He was about to dial 911 when I finally caught my breath and said, “I finished it! The ending of this book . . .” I gave a quivering gasp “I didn’t see it coming until I typed the last three pages. It felt like it really happened.

He sat beside me and asked me to read the end of the book to him. Then he started crying. It was the hee-hee laughing sort of crying he does whenever he sees a God thing happening. We both laughed and cried. Such a journey.

I have been writing about Christy and her Forever Friends for 30 years. Christy was 14 in the first book. She celebrates her 30th birthday in Sunset Lullaby. There are a total of 45 books about these characters. I’ve included the complete list below.

All I can say is what an adventure it is when you trust God step by step. You never know how He will lead you or how He will use the work of your hands to bless others and expand His kingdom.

    Ordered my copy as soon as I got the e-mail! So excited to read about Christy’s 30th birthday as I celebrate my 30th on November 17th…right after the book comes out! (P.S. I was so excited little Hana was born on my birthday. Heehee!)

  • Grace Bowling

    I know you can’t say much but I would like to prepare my heart so….is this the last Christy book?

    • Karen Kennelly

      I want to know this too please!! I keep thinking that it’s out already! so hard to wait

  • Starving Author

    What a beautiful post! I just read the summary for Sunset Lullaby, and I am excited to read it. Christy Spencer, 30 years if age now. It seemed like only yesterday she was in her teens and twenties.

  • Joy Michelle

    growing up with these books i have to say my only major bone to pick is that after books of Sierra focused on Paul he’s but a forgotten entity. as charming as jordan is, would have much rather seen paul come around… :(

  • Samantha

    Robin, I cannot tell you the joy that these books have brought me over the angst filled teen years and over the last few years living in a literal desert and going through some really tough times. I am almost finished reading Salty Kisses, and I am savoring every sweet moment. You capture friendship and joy so well in your writing, and you have inspired me to finally believe in the God things that God can do in my life and write a book myself (something I have wanted to do my whole life–and I just turned 30, too. Better late than never, right?) All that to say…thank you. Thank you so very much. And I truly hope you will continue writing and sharing each season of your life on facebook and on this blog. Bless you, Sister.

  • Missi

    I’m so excited the read the 3rd Christy baby book, and even more excited for your next book!!!

  • Tiffany Poisson

    I just finished this book in happy tears. This collection is so deep and meaningful. I am so glad you continue to respond to God’s call and write these beautiful stories.

  • Ashley Frey

    I started reading Christy books when I was a teenager. Now that I am turning almost 30, I have the great privilege of sharing these books with my 6th grade students. I can connect with them and use the books to help draw them to our sweet Savior, but I am also able to continue to read them, and apply the adventures that Christy and Todd are on into my own life. Book 3 really helped me through my postpartum issues as well. I am so thankful for how God has used your books to help me in my walk with Him. Please don’t stop writing Christy books!

  • Bre

    I have been reading the Christy series since I was a teenage and I am now in my thirties. I love to read, but I have never connected with a character the way I do with Christy. Your books have ministered to me through every season of my life. I would read the series every year because I love it that much. However, I must say this Baby Series has ministered to me more than you will ever know. I can remember reading the first book while I was pumping and in tears because I felt like Chrsity could relate to my struggles as a new mom. I just finished the third book and was crying as she read the passage about being enough. It was exactly what I needed to read as the Mama of a toddler. Thank you for allowing God to speak to the reader’s heart through your books!

  • Skye M

    I am a 13 year old girl and I have grown in my relationship with the Lord through the Christy Miller books. I absolutely love your books and am so excited to hear there are more. If I have a daughter when I get married, I know that these are books I will have her read. Thank you so much for providing these amazing books for me to to read!

  • Lexi

    There must be more! Todd says he’s been thinking on page 229 and you never return to the thought! It cannot end like this!! Thank you for writing this series and this narrative. You’ve changed so many lives with your wondrous works. What a gift you’ve been given!

    • fran

      agreed! i even reread the book to see if i missed something. please don’t end the series!!!!

  • Audrey Jones

    Mrs. Robin,
    I love your books. I love the way you write. I’m a second generation Christy reader. I love Christy and all her forever friends. You are such an inspiration to me, you make me want to be a writer more and more. I love Hawaii because of your books.
    The best part is they are Christian. They have so many great things or, I should say ‘God things’ in them that make me feel closer to God. I can’t describe how amazing they really are. I know you understand. Its all so deep, intimate, and it makes me wish I was Christy. All the wisdom you put into your books, I apply to my life. Guard your heart. Love Jesus above everything else. Marry someone like Todd Spencer.

  • Sarah

    Please tell me there will be more “baby years” books!! I have LOVED these books since I was a teenager!!

  • Acacia

    I love your books so much! I am 14, and read almost all of your books about Christy Miller in about 3 weeks. My mom read them as a teen, and so did my aunts. My mom says that your books were what inspired her to read more. :) I have learned so much about my own heart and about the hearts of others through these books. They have have renewed my energy to always stay pure before the Lord. Thank you so much Mrs. Gunn. Your books are an inspiration to me and others! May the Lord bless you and keep you forever and ever. Oh…and please write more about Christy and Todd! :)

    (Okay, there may be some spoilers in here, but I tried to edit them out)
    Oh my goodness, I just finished Sunset Lullaby last night and I’m getting teary eyed again just thinking about it. That beautiful ending was so long in the making… I started to thank God for what happened and then I remembered that that character isn’t actually a person in regular life :) But I thanked God for you, Robin, and all that your books have done for me. It had been a long time since I had felt that kind of joy in another person’s redemption, and it was so good to feel that warmth and joy– the kind of joy you want to share– like I first felt 9 years ago when I experienced God’s grace.
    Christy reminded me that happiness comes from being thankful. At one point reading The Baby Years, I felt like Christy’s circumstances were great, and I wished that I could have that kind of good life. Then I realized that my own circumstances were wonderful– the difference was that Christy had a thankful heart to give her happiness in her blessings.
    Thank you again, Robin!

    I don’t plan on getting married or having kids, but I grew up with Christy back in the 90s. I’m so glad that she’s gotten the forever she wanted – but I’m also glad that Christian women like me weren’t maligned in this last series. My calling might not be to be a mom, but that doesn’t make me any less of a woman, and that happens too often in Christian circles.

    When Christy realized she and Tracy had grown apart in the second book of the series though… wow, that’s life, but it does hurt so much.
