Keeper of the Stars

Robin Lee Hatcher has crafted a wonderful story of the power of forgiveness and letting go. Keeper of the Stars follows Penny Cartwright as she navigates the tragic death of her brother and the unexpected surprises along the way.

Kings Meadow and its residents are endearing and heartfelt. Hatcher is a wonderful writer and has brought us back this familiar community and to the Cartwright family in particular. Despite his grief Rodney Cartwright opens up their home to Trevor Reynolds, in hopes of bringing healing not only to Trevor but to Penny as well.

At its core this book is a love story. But at the same time it’s so much more than a love story. It’s about family, community, grief, and new beginnings; and the theme that unites them all is faith. Penny has to figure out how her faith is going to impact her relationships with her family, community, and also Trevor. These aren’t easy situations for Penny to navigate through but throughout the story she learns to rely on the Lord.

About the book: 

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.
