Keeper of the Stars by Robin Lee Hatcher

Keeper of the StarsSynopsis:~

Forgiveness is the only cure for heartbreak. But can Penny forgive the man she holds responsible for her brother’s death?

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.

My take:~

I’ve long enjoyed Robin Lee Hatcher’s novels from my early years of reading inspirational novels ~ The Forgiving Hour from the late 90s still floats around in my brain! While some of her later releases have been of a lighter nature, Keeper of the Stars reflects a lovely romance yet with deep issues that stir the characters’ hearts as they wrestle guilt, anger, bitterness, and unforgiveness. Trevor and Penny’s individual journey’s through their pain is not overwhelmed by the romantic elements and I appreciated that, a reflection of Robin’s talent and experience as a writer. Some contemporary romance novels are so focused on the happily ever after, they become cliche and characters are underdeveloped ~ this is not the case here! Keeper of the Stars is the last, and my favourite, of Robin’s Kings Meadow Romance series, and I’m looking forward to more from this prolific wordsmith.
