Michelle Baron sat on the edge of the couch, her heart racing as she looked at the envelope in her hand. I guess this is it, she thought. The return address seemed harmless enough. Fairfield Lab, Portland, Oregon. But this envelope contained information that could change her life forever.
Michelle and her family rejoice when her father begins to regain consciousness after an unsuccessful suicide attempt. But a long journey awaits, as they seek to clear his name of the embezzlement charges that drove him to this desperate act. The days of their vigil at the hospital drag into weeks, and Michelle finds herself repeatedly drawn to the newborn nursery. Observing couples leave with tiny babes in their arms, her heart is stirred, and she begins to yearn for a child of her own. However, an unexpected twist will threaten her new dream.
Through the Tears - the second novel in the Sandy Cove series - delivers a message of hope in the midst of longing and disappointment.

I thought I would love this book since the first was very interesting, but the character of Michelle is beyond annoying. If you are recently divorced, are having a hard time having children, or have a husband who has been unfaithful- please do not buy this audiobook. I feel that it will tear you apart and bring your spirits down from all the annoyance and frustration rather than lifting you up. A lot of the story lines and scenes are very unrealistic such as Michelle's dad attempting to talk- this would rarely happen with someone who has been intubated and in critical condition or has been injured in the head as Michelle's dad attempted to shoot himself. Michelle is such a very selfish character who only thinks of herself and is not sensitive to her husband's needs and feelings. I found myself rolling my eyes throughout the story. Do yourself a favor, and skip this one if you are looking for joy, positive energy and love after a time of tragedy.
This book brought healing to my heart and awareness to a what many couples experience with infertility. The author's comments at the end taught me something I didn't know and am glad I have the knowledge now. I am also inspired to volunteer
