Keeper of the Stars, by Robin Lee Hatcher, is a heartfelt love story with a focus on the harsh realities of grief and forgiveness. Penny Cartwright lost her mother at a young age and now, at the beginning of the book, she's struggling with the tragedy that took the life of her younger brother, Brad. Trevor Cartwright survives the car accident but blames himself for that night. The beauty of this book are the flashbacks on Brad Cartwright's life. I loved reading about his tremendous faith in God and how just by living for the Lord he was able to lead Trevor to Kings Meadow. I believe that's how God works in this life- every person fits together like pieces of a puzzle. It's not always easy to see the big picture but Robin Lee Hatcher delights and comforts us with this wonderful story of God working through tragedy and joy.

Keeper of the Stars (Thomas Nelson, January 2016)
Because it's not always love at first sight!
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.
