This is the third in Brunstetter’s Kentucky Brothers series. The mixed cast of characters is refreshing, as is the reminder that “family” does not always mean blood relatives. Brunstetter shows us the importance of making every day count.
In hopes of strengthening his marriage, Timothy Fisher decides to move his family from Pennsylvania to Kentucky. His brothers live there and can provide Timothy with employment. And he feels his wife Hannah’s attachment to her mamm is detrimental to their marriage. Hannah resents Timothy and the move. Despite numerous overtures by the women in the community, Hannah does not feel at home. Timothy hopes having their own house will help, but a tragic accident sends Hannah running back to her family in Pennsylvania. Her parents believe that a wife’s place is with her husband. Is reconciliation possible? Can Timothy and Hannah have a second chance at happiness? (BARBOUR, Aug, 384 pp, $14.99)
