Review Hurricane Season by Lauren K. Denton – Description – 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 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.#Tnzfiction #NetGalley
This is the second book I read from Lauren K. Denton. His first book, The Hideaway has made me fall in love with the narration created by the author. Then another thing that made me pick and take this book is because the cover is very beautiful and alive. Of course, the third part that makes me love this book is the concept of the relationship between two sisters. I want to fall into this story.
Betsy and Ty Franklin may have given up on having children. Moreover, they are too tired with various tests that have been passed fertility. They try to establish love in the home without the figure of a child. Then came two nephews, the two daughters from her sister, Jenna. Yes, it was two weeks that could change Betsy’s life.
I love how every character in this story is built. As usual, Lauren K. Denton also drugged me with a binding and easy-to-read narrative. Then we also should not forget the concept of storms in this story. Storms can come to life and ruin everything, but by that time we also learned many ways to grow and heal.
Throughout the story the reader will find emotions built from clear characters. Three different angles of each character make the story more fresh and interesting. Then the reader will be carried away by stories of emotion, accepting, giving and sustaining. This is not an easy life for every character. They have different problems but that does not mean they do not rise.
Then the bond between the two sisters was built from unexpected stories. I really like the writer who try to attract the reader’s emotions. Like it or not, this story keeps me going through the pages to the end. It is a contemporary story that is alive and hard to forget.
Each narrative also flows very well. I can feel this effect, just like when I read The Hideaway. I think this is the advantage of Lauren K. Denton that will push this book to explode throughout the bookstore. But for the end of the story, I was actually less impressed and sick. Indeed all the stories end like that, peace and there is a very deep meaning. But I think this ends too soon. And finally, after reading, I have many questions that may never be answered again.
It’s a living, contemporary story about the relationship of two sisters. The narrative is so beautiful that it forces me to finish it in one reading. And thanks to the author Lauren K. Denton also NetGalley #Tnzfiction #NetGalley
