She blames him for her brother's death. Can she let go of resentment and open her heart to love?
Penny Cartwright found it difficult to understand why her younger brother would choose to join a country singer’s band rather than return to Kings Meadow after college . . . and the separation strained their relationship. Then a car accident made certain her brother could never return.
Trevor Reynolds has chased stardom in Nashville for more than a dozen years, but it remains out of his reach. After an accident kills his young drummer, Trevor goes to Kings Meadow to keep a promise—and perhaps to discover what truly matters in this life.
Thrown together by circumstances, Penny and Trevor must learn to give and receive forgiveness. And if they do, perhaps something beautiful can rise from the ashes of heartbreak.
Although it wasn't Trevor's fault that Penny's brother died he still partly blames himself. When her brother died, Penny lost her faith in God. Trevor made a promise to her brother and he intends to keep it. This promise leads the two into a budding romance. The romance is sweet and depicted as hope after a tragedy. It's not an "insta-romance" and the author takes time to build up their relationship. The reader will likely find themselves as invested in the relationship as I did! It takes time to recover after such a crushing loss and I can't imagine losing my sister.
The novel did touch on hard topics, but there were lighter subjects interspersed and focused upon, as well. I liked how the author explored loss and recovery. Her style of writing was fun and made the book a fast read. The reader does get to meet Penny's brother in flashbacks and will feel as if he/she knows him quite well. The flashbacks will make the reader truly feel the loss of one of the major characters. This book is recommended to adult readers.
