“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

From the author of the USA TODAY bestseller 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 decided to put life’s disappointments behind them. At least in theory. Ty manages their herd of dairy cows, while Betsy busies herself with the farm’s day-to-day operations and tries to forget the longing for motherhood set deep in her heart. But when Betsy’s free-spirited younger sister Jenna drops her young daughters off at the farm to attend a two-week art retreat in Florida, Betsy’s carefully constructed wall of self-protection begins to crumble.

As those two weeks stretch much farther into the hot Alabama summer, Betsy and Ty learn to navigate the new additions in their world and revel in a home that’s suddenly filled with the sound of laughter and life. Meanwhile, record heat promises to usher in the most active hurricane season in decades.

Four hundred miles away, Jenna is fighting her own battles. She’d once been free to travel and pursue a career in photography, but all that changed with the appearance of two pink lines on a plastic stick and a boyfriend who hit the road. At Halcyon art retreat, she finally has the time and energy to focus on her photography. As the summer continues, she wonders how her rediscovered passion can fit in with the life she’s made back home with her two children.

When Hurricane Ingrid aims her steady eye at the Alabama coast, Jenna must make a decision that could affect both her and her children’s futures, and Betsy and Ty find themselves protecting their beloved farm as well as their own hearts.

Hurricane Season tugs at your feelings in so many different ways. The characters pull you in to each of their struggles and the underlying reason for the development of their emotions. I enjoyed the journey with them but expected closure on the outcome of each of their stories. I guess not knowing how things work out for sure leaves the door open for a sequel which would invite us back into the lives of the sisters for a glimpse of life after the Hurricanes of their lives.

Hurricane Season is an emotional and thought provoking about choices and the consequences of those decisions. Betsy Franklin and her younger sister, Jenna Sawyer, had parents who were very devoted to their careers and sometimes it didn't leave time for the children. They grew up in Birmingham, Alabama where their mother was a doctor working with a cancer center and the father was a composer and conductor of the symphony. The girls coped with the situation in different ways. Betsy was an overachiever trying to gain attention and Jenna rebelled and was the trouble maker. Betsy is the oldest and always took care of Jenna. Now as adults, Jenna is living in Nashville, the single mother of two little girls. She struggles to make ends meet but loves her girls dearly. She ran off to chase her dreams before she finished college so she works in a coffee shop. Her lifelong love has always been photography. When she gets an opportunity to go to a photography retreat in Florida, she calls on Betsy to keep the girls. Betsy ditched her marketing dreams to marry a dairy farmer in south Alabama. She and Ty have not been able to make one dream come true--that of having a child. But she can't say no to Jenna. This time of having the girls on the farm is trying but rewarding to Betsy and Ty. It is a time for Jenna to pursue a dream that she feels is something that she has to do for herself and the girls. Both sisters are carrying around unresolved issues that they need to address for themselves, each other and their families. This book evoked different emotions in me. I felt sadness for the sisters, the girls and even Ty. I also wanted to fuss at Betsy and Jenna at times. Overall, I recommend this book for a satisfying and sweet read. I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida so I could relate to what they went through with hurricane season. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley.
