Publisher's Summary

USA Today best seller Hurricane Season is the story of one family’s unconventional journey to healing — and the relationships that must be mended along the way.

Betsy and Ty Franklin, owners of Franklin Dairy Farm in southern Alabama, have long since buried their desire for children of their own. While Ty manages their herd of dairy cows, Betsy busies herself with the farm’s day-to-day operations and tries to forget her dream of motherhood. But when her free-spirited sister, Jenna, drops off her two young daughters for “just two weeks,” Betsy’s carefully constructed wall of self-protection begins to crumble.

As the two weeks stretch deeper into the Alabama summer, Betsy and Ty learn to navigate the new additions in their world — and revel in the laughter that now fills their home. Meanwhile, record temperatures promise to usher in the most active hurricane season in decades.

Attending an art retreat four hundred miles away, Jenna is fighting her own battles. She finally has time and energy to focus on her photography, a lifelong ambition. But she wonders how her rediscovered passion can fit in with the life she’s made back home as a single mom.

When Hurricane Ingrid aims a steady eye at the Alabama coast, Jenna must make a decision that will change her family’s future, even as Betsy and Ty try to protect their beloved farm and their hearts. From the author of the USA Today best seller The Hideaway comes a new story about families and mending the past.

“A poignant and heartfelt tale of sisterhood, motherhood, and marriage, Hurricane Season deftly examines the role that coming to terms with the past plays in creating a hopeful future. Readers will devour this story of the hurricanes — both literal and figurative — that shape our lives.” (Kristy Woodson Harvey, national best-selling author of Slightly South of Simple)

Pleasant Story

For some reason, I thought this book would have more of a faith-based slant, which it did not; it was, however, a thoroughly enjoyable story of two sisters and a summer in their life. If you are looking for sex and bad language, this isn't the book for you--if you are looking for a relationship-based story that features love and family-life and conflicted emotions then you may like the book as much as I did. I will seek out other books by this author and narrator. It was a good use of a credit, in my opinion.

Too long. & repetitive

The narrator was excellent. The plot had potential but it never quite made it. The story went on and on saying the same things slightly differently. The title is misleading as to how important the hurricane was to the story. I started to stop reading several times but kept thinking it would get better. Unfortunately, this book was a disappointment for me to the very end.

Narrator should not do southern books

I was immediately disappointed with the narration. This book is set in my part of the world where voices are slow and rich. It sounded like she was speed reading which really ruined it for me, especially since I listened to this on the heels of a brilliantly narrated Southern novel - Call Your Daughter Home. I solved part of it by reducing speed to 75%. That was annoying too, but not as much. The story was okay, but I think the sense of place could have been much stronger.

Great story and author!

My first Laura Denton book. I really enjoyed it. Always very happy to find another clean “romance” author... the romance in this story was kind of small. But great story! I was a little disappointed in the very end... I like nice, tidy conclusions of what you’ve been hoping for the whole book. :) But I’m definitely going to download another book!

good book

Great story but the end was a disappointment. I feel like it built you up for a dramatic event than nothing.

Disappointingly dull

Very dull & monotonous story. Nothing of interest or substance to me. I loved the other three books by this author but I've returned this one to audible.
