Publisher's Summary

Now a USA Today best seller!

“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 best-selling author of Slightly South of Simple)

From the author of the USA Today best seller 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 400 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.

Pleasant Story

For some reason, I thought this book would have more of a faith-based slant, which it did not; it was, however, a thoroughly enjoyable story of two sisters and a summer in their life. If you are looking for sex and bad language, this isn't the book for you--if you are looking for a relationship-based story that features love and family-life and conflicted emotions then you may like the book as much as I did. I will seek out other books by this author and narrator. It was a good use of a credit, in my opinion.

good book

Great story but the end was a disappointment. I feel like it built you up for a dramatic event than nothing.

Really boring

There was no climax in the story. Skipped many chapters to find some portions of interest but was disappointed.

I Loved it but wanted a Complex Plot .. still the Characters and setting were Perfect -

It needs a Complex ending /finish- and more drama.. maybe more Tragedy and Action-/ layers .
