From the author of the USA TODAY best-seller The Hideaway comes a new story about families and mending the past.
Betsy and Ty Franklin, owners of Franklin Dairy Farm in southern Alabama, have long since buried their desire for children of their own. While Ty manages their herd of dairy cows, Betsy busies herself with the farm's day-to-day operations and tries to forget her dream of motherhood. But when her free-spirited sister, Jenna, drops off her two young daughters for ""just two weeks,"" Betsy's carefully constructed wall of self-protection begins to crumble.
As the two weeks stretch deeper into the Alabama summer, Betsy and Ty learn to navigate the new additions in their world-and revel in the laughter that now fills their home. Meanwhile, record temperatures promise to usher in the most active hurricane season in decades.
Attending an art retreat four hundred miles away, Jenna is fighting her own battles. She finally has time and energy to focus on her photography, a lifelong ambition. But she wonders how her rediscovered passion can fit in with the life she's made back home as a single mom.
When Hurricane Ingrid aims a steady eye at the Alabama coast, Jenna must make a decision that will change her family's future, even as Betsy and Ty try to protect their beloved farm and their hearts. Hurricane Season is the story of one family's unconventional journey to healing-and the relationships that must be mended along the way.
- Just so-so. Not a Christian book per se
This book was so so. As a sister and as a photographer, I thought I would really enjoy the plot but it never really gelled for me or my sister (we listened to it together). The writing was good but the plot very thin and it seemed to drag on and on. The climax, I suppose, is the hurricane, but it was rather anticlimactic and the resolution of the relationship between the sisters was a bit pat. There are no Christian themes in the book. God's name is not specifically mentioned, and there are some vague references to praying and church but that's it. I was disappointed.
