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.
Still feeling the pain of Brad’s death, Penny and Trevor must learn that forgiveness is the only thing that can heal their hearts. And if they do forgive, something beautiful may rise from the ashes of heartbreak.
My opinion: This is one of my favorite books by Robin Lee Hatcher which is saying a lot since I am a fan of her books! This one was just a sweet romance that definitely wasn't love at first sight which was a nice change from most romance books out there. I really like characters and how they both developed as the story progressed and how their romance progressed as well. I really did feel for the character Penny and all of the losses she went to through. A very touching, good read. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
