Moments We Forget
(Thatcher Sisters #2)
By Beth K. Vogt
Women's Fiction, Christian Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 448 Pages
May 7th 2019 by Tyndale House Publishers


Jillian Thatcher has spent most of her life playing the family peacemaker, caught in the middle between her driven, talented older sister and her younger, spotlight-stealing twin sisters. Then on the night of her engagement party, a cancer diagnosis threatens to once again steal her chance to shine. Now, Jillian’s on the road to recovery after finally finishing chemo and radiation, but residual effects of the treatment keep her from reclaiming her life as she’d hoped. And just when her dreams might be falling into place, a life-altering revelation from her husband sends her reeling again. Will Jillian ever achieve her own dreams, or will she always be “just Jillian,” the less-than Thatcher sister? Can she count on her sisters as she tries to step into a stronger place, or are they stuck in their childhood roles forever?

My Review

MOMENTS WE FORGET is a story about three sisters who haven't gotten along most of their lives who are trying to reconnect and find that there are some things that join them together. Recommended to Women's Fiction and Contemporary Romance readers.

The beginning of this story threw me a little. I hadn't read the first book and I felt like I was missing some pieces. There also are quite a few different POVs and not a lot of intro into each one at first. However, it didn't take me long to get everyone straight and get into this book.

Each one of these sisters was easy to relate to in some way. They each have their strengths and their weaknesses and their struggles. Some of them feel like their life is going perfectly and then catastrophe strikes. Surprisingly (at least to them), they learn to lean on each other. There is romance, friendship, forgiveness, heartbreak (oh, the heartbreak - grab the tissues!), faith, and love woven through this story. These sisters aren't quite done and I'm hoping for a more resolved happily-ever-after in the next book.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I really enjoyed this story. It was heartfelt, genuine, pulled on my emotions, and I couldn't help but fall in love with these sisters. I'm looking forward to more!
