About the Book:
Forgiveness is the only cure for heartbreak. But can Penny forgive the man she holds responsible for her brother’s death?
When her mother died from pneumonia, Penny Cartwright was heartbroken. But now, after burying her younger brother just 12 years later, she is devastated. Anger, guilt, and sorrow cloud Penny’s mind, and the last thing she wants is to be reminded of her pain—but that’s exactly what happens when a stranger comes to town.
Trevor Reynolds has been chasing fame for more than a dozen years, but his musical career can’t get off the ground. While on the road, an accident kills his young drummer, Brad Cartwright. Trevor wasn’t behind the wheel, but he still blames himself . . . and so does Brad’s sister, Penny. Now Trevor finds himself in Kings Meadow, determined to follow through on his final promise to his friend.
Robin Lee Hatcher writes light, easy on the heart and mind, romantic novels. She has been a long time steady voice among Christian fiction that I have enjoyed. The meat is few and far between, but it is still there, throughout the story. In this tale, forgiveness is the theme that sneaks between the pages with a musical tune throughout.
You find yourself seeing through Penny’s eyes, lingering on the past, her loss of her brother, and blaming the person that she believes responsible. As you see that, you walk through the path of forgiveness and love as she grows to find a friend in the person closest to her brother.
This book was not a read that I would recommend for in depth reading, but for a light, happy, Christmas themed story, it was excellent. It will give you food for thought and entertainment. I loved the blue and white themed cover as well. Snuggle up under a warm blanket with hot cocoa and cookies and grab this book up.
