Publisher's Summary

In the second installment of the gripping Tucker's Way series, Tucker faces the biggest crisis of her life.

Tucker has finally overcome a lifelong fear of trusting others and let her kind neighbor, Ella, into her heart. Despite their different backgrounds, Tucker and Ella share a deep affection and, together with their good friend Smiley Carter, they support one another and care for Tucker's three troubled grandchildren.

As Tucker's bonds with Ella and Smiley deepen, Tucker's grandson disappears and the bank threatens to foreclose on her farm. Then the worst happens - Ella is diagnosed with lung cancer. How can Tucker find her faith during a time when God has never seemed farther away?

    "Sad but good"

    I read the first book, Tucker'sWay, which was excellent. I couldn't wait to read An Unexpected Frost. The narrator was excellent and the story was very real and honest. The characters are outstanding but you need to read the first book before you read this one. I just feel like Ella's cancer was dragged out a little too much. Otherwise fabulous read. Am getting ready to read book 3, April's Rain.

    "Should have stopped after the first book"

    I really enjoyed the first book, so I was excited to start the second. I'm on chapter 33, and had to stop reading. It's just getting to be too preachy and Jesusy for me to enjoy.

    "Touching series"

    It's interesting to see the progression of the characters growth in this second book of the series. I'm looking forward to the next book. I can't imagine where it will go.

    Story
    "The wonderful Tucker series continues!"

    Two years have passed in poverty laced northwest Tennessee since he close of Tucker's Way novel. The characters you loved from Tucker's Way are back. There's Tucker, the poor grandmother that seems to get only bad news, of course. There are also her three grandchildren March, August, and April. Etta and Smiley Carter are also there. This tearjerker novel deals beautifully with happiness after loss and death, Mostly the novel is about deep friendships in the face of death and other adversity.

    The outstanding character development is Tucker's Way continues in The Unexpected Frost. Narration is perfect. This is a must listen series, but after the intensity of the first two novels I'm going to take a break for lighter fare before continuing with the final two books in the series.

    "Disappointed"

    I loved book 1. This book turned into a Church of Christ sermon. I'm going to quit while I'm ahead. I'm not going to chance book 3 etc.

    "You get caught up in the life of Tucker"

    Great follow up to the first book in the series! My only disappointment was that the book wasn't longer. You easily get caught up in the life of Tucker and all those who surround her. The book makes you appreciate what you have and wish for more who are less fortunate. The bond between Ella and Tucker is that of a bond we should all home for at some time in our life. Well written and narrated and I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.

    "An Unexpected Frost"
    Any additional comments?

    These comments address the The Tucker Series, as of this writing four novels written by David Johnson. All of the unabridged audiobooks are narrated by Laural Merlington. Lengths vary from just under six hours to just over ten. I was introduced to the first book via an Audible Daily Deal and enjoyed the story enough to finish the entire series.<br/><br/>The stories center around the lead character, Tucker. Tucker is an elderly woman, a victim of child abuse, who has been saddled with the raising of her three grandchildren. The setting is a life of extreme poverty in rural Tennessee.<br/><br/>My initial reaction is positive with a few codicils. Working through all four novels became a bit tedious, many areas a bit too preachy for my taste .. especially in books three and four. The characters were also very teary, lots of crying and angst. For those squeamish of the topic, some terrible child abuse is vividly described. There are many instances that had me rolling my eyes … some situations and character behavior lacks credibility.<br/><br/>Reason I liked these stories? Character development and narration. David Johnson does a terrific job with the character of Tucker. I’m sure you’ll find other characters in the stories that are well developed and believable. Narration by Merlington is excellent … unique voices for all characters.<br/><br/>If you are interested in a familial tale, with character development exceptional, you will enjoy The Tucker Series.<br/><br/>If you’re turned off by books that are very preachy and loaded with christian values, these are not for you.

    "Profound emotional impact"

    I gave 5 stars to the first book in the series, Tucker's way. now I think this second book would have to be seven or eight stars out of 5. it's truly amazing. I don't think I've ever listened to a book that has such a profound emotional impact. Brilliant writing absolutely brilliant narration. I highly recommend it but I also think you need to listen to Tucker's way first and don't give up if the first few chapters seem difficult. you will never regret this set of stories.
