TLC Book Tours: Hurricane Season

bout Hurricane Season

  • Paperback: 352 pages
  • Publisher: Thomas Nelson (April 3, 2018)
From the author of the USA Today bestseller The Hideaway comes another story of 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.

 What a fantastic read!! I live in the Pacific Northwest, and saw that this book was set in the South. I had a trip planned for work to Florida, and saved this book to read during my trip for an extra layer of fun! I loved Jenna and Betsy and got really attached to both of them--though the book was almost 400 pages and moved slowly at times, I was sad to leave these characters at the end because I wanted to know more. Because of Jenna's love for photography, I think I connected with her a little more but loved Betsy's story as well. A summer artist retreat in sunny Florida? Yes please!  I enjoyed learning more about the South through this book.

 I loved the family themes explored in this book,and thought the author portrayed them well. The approaching hurricane added an extra layer to the story, and helped tie the story together in the end. Overall I really enjoyed this read and recommend adding it to your reading list!

  1. I love a good family drama. What a cool thing to be able to read a book in the setting it is in. I definitely read some Jo Nesbo while I was in Sweden!
