Book description: "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 review: I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to going back and reading the first two books in this series. This is a story full of hope and forgiveness but also contains a lot of pain and heartache. The characters struggles are real, and I couldn't put the book down. I enjoyed the flashbacks from Brad's point of view, which gave some background information. It is an emotional read, but one you don't want to miss. I received a complimentary e-copy from the publisher through the Booklook Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
