… the battered gray school bus from Bankston Detention pulled up out front, and twenty teenage boys shuffled off, hormones and pent-up energy swirling around them like almost visible steam.
She smoothed her hands across the blanket, straightened the corners, and imagined the room holding two little girls after holding nothing but dreams and damaged furniture.
Jenna always hated icebreakers like this. They reminded her of the week in college when she lost her mind and thought she mi ...more
I enjoyed Lauren Denton's debut novel, The Hideaway, and had high hopes for her second novel. I wasn't disappointed. This was a well written novel that kept me turning the pages. It was all about love and family and relationships -not just the relationship between husband and wife but also between sisters who are very different from each other.
Betsy and Ty own a dairy farm in southern Alabama. They both work hard to keep the farm running and secure their future. The one part of their lives that ...more

This is SUCH a brilliant book, and on so many levels. I have to preface my review with this: the last time I read a 400 page book in ONE day was.... never! But right from page one, I was drawn in and in and in to the story of these two sisters who on the surface are so different, but under the surface they hold a loving history and bond. The first level of this book is beautifully written- believable characters whom I cared about from the beginning and whose needs and desires on so many levels k ...more
Two sisters who are complete opposites. One is responsible, one free-spirited. One can't have children and desperately wants them, one who has two girls she didn't really plan for. The free-spirited (and somewhat irresponsible) sister takes off for a photography camp leaving her children with the childless sister. And the week stretches to months. Who deserves the adorable little girls now? A hurricane approaches threatening their lives and the relationship between sisters is nearly blown apart. ...more
Whenever Lauren K. Denton puts out another book, I'm there. I find her books to be great comfort reads, the kind of book you can relax into. They are strikingly atmospheric, she has a gift for making you feel like you're right there with the characters. In this book, we are both on a secluded artist's retreat with a single mother who is a budding photographer, and on a dairy farm with a husband and wife who clearly love each other but have let their difficulties conceiving come between them. The ...more
Such a beautiful cover that I was drawn to this book on Netgalley almost despite myself. I read the synopsis and it sounded good so off I went!
The story of Betsy and Ty being asked to take Jenna's children while she went off to a photography retreat is an age old one in some ways. Many times there's a more responsible sibling that is left to clean up behind the less responsible one. That's what happened in the past and what Betsy and Ty are expecting to happen here.
The dairy farm and the descrip ...more
