You'll Think of Me by Robin Lee Hatcher
In a small town in Idaho’s idyllic wine country where the past looms large, can two people realize their individual dreams for the future … together?
Abandoned once too often, Brooklyn Myers never intended to return to Thunder Creek, Idaho. Her hometown holds too many memories of heartache and rejection. But when her estranged husband Chad Hallston dies and leaves his family home and acreage to her and their ten-year-old daughter Alycia, it's an opportunity to change their lives for the better—a chance Brooklyn can't pass up, for Alycia's sake if not her own.
Derek Johnson, Chad's best friend since boyhood, isn't keen on the return of Brooklyn Myers to Thunder Creek. He still blames her for leading his friend astray. And now she has ruined his chance to buy the neighboring ten acres which would have allowed him to expand his organic farm. To add insult to injury, Chad's dying request was that Derek become the father to Alycia that Chad never was. How can he keep that promise without also spending time with the girl’s mother?
Brought together by unexpected circumstances, Derek and Brooklyn must both confront challenges to their dreams and expectations. He must overcome long held misconceptions about Brooklyn while she must learn to trust someone other than herself. And if they can do it, they just might discover that God has something better in mind than either of them ever imagined.
About The Author
The author the characters so real in this book, I felt I was watching a movie, or looking at real life. My heart broke for the young Brooklyn, all that happened to her, and then she raises a wonderful daughter, really correcting all the wrong parenting that happened to her. We find the difference is that she has become a Christian, and she really lives her faith.
A childhood friend, or acquaintance, comes to her rescue as she returns to Thunder Creek, Idaho, and you can see how he, Derek, is disappointed and yet happy to see her. We see how he didn’t like her as a child or young teen with his best friend becoming closer to Brooklyn, he was loosing his friend, and then when he again looses his hopeful land. Oh dear!
Brooklyn’s daughter Alycia is delightful, and at ten going on twenty, she is a child and yet she has a lot of compassion, and is there for others.
This story has so much going for it, and I hated to see it end, but there is another book coming, a stand alone, but set right here in Thunder Creek! You don’t want to miss this sweet read, a real enjoyment!
