Description

USA TODAY bestseller Hurricane Season is the story of one family's unconventional journey to healing--and the relationships that must be mended along the way.

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. From the author of the USA TODAY bestseller The Hideaway comes a new story about families and mending the past.

"A poignant and heartfelt tale of sisterhood, motherhood, and marriage, Hurricane Season deftly examines the role that coming to terms with the past plays in creating a hopeful future. Readers will devour this story of the hurricanes--both literal and figurative--that shape our lives." --Kristy Woodson Harvey, national bestselling author of Slightly South of Simple

Hurricane Season speaks to me not just of the storm approaching but of the internal hurricanes in the lives of the characters. This story is written from the perspectives of Betsy, Ty, and Jeanna and each chapter is labeled so you aren’t in doubt of whom is speaking. Each character is struggling and hiding feelings that need to be dealt with in order to heal and move on. This is a powerful story of family relationships and internal struggles that will leave you emotionally involved with their lives when the last page is turned. Finding Hope in the midst of the storm is the best description I can find for this story that tugs your heartstrings. I received a complimentary copy from the Thomas Nelson & Zondervan Fiction Guild. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

" 'I see children, he said. I hear laughter. I see a childhood spent outside in the heat and air and light. I see our future.' " The future that Betsy and Ty Franklin had imagined as newlyweds has grown strangely dim. Managing the large Franklin Dairy Farm in southern Alabama is rewarding, in spite of the relentless pace, but there is no laughter of children ringing in their ears. There is barely optimism, in Betsy's mind, of extending the Franklin name for the next generation, for now it seems that prayer might be their only option. One summer morning a phone call from Betsy's sister Jenna interrupts her rather predictable routine; can Betsy and Ty keep her young daughters while she attends a prestigious art retreat in Florida? Two weeks. Two children. "She'd do anything for Jenna." As the days become weeks, and Jenna's retreat extends her original estimation, both sisters struggle to find freedom from who they think they ought to be and who they truly are. It might take a hurricane to illuminate a ray of "hope shining like a beacon in the dark places". Such a lovely story! I received a copy of this book from the publisher, under no obligations. The opinions stated above are entirely my own.
