"From the author of the USA Today bestseller The Hideaway comes another story of families and mending the past. 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. Hurricane Season is the story of one family's unconventional journey to healing--and the relationships that must be mended along the way.

Hurricane Season by Lauren K. Denton is a 2018 Thomas Nelson publication.

Betsy and Ty run the Franklin Dairy Farm located in Southern Alabama. They have made a nice life together, are still in love after nearly a decade of marriage, but there’s still one thing missing from Betsy’s life.

When Betsy’s sister, Jenna, calls out of the blue asking if she can watch her daughters for a couple of weeks so she can attend an art retreat, Betsy agrees without really thinking it through or talking to Ty first.

When two girls arrive, they bring the farm to life and deepens a longing in Betsy that exposes some cracks in her otherwise stable relationship with Ty. Meanwhile, Jenna rediscovers her photography, seeing a way to provide for her girls with a job she loves- but she’ll have to leave her girls with Betsy for longer than she originally planned…

Meanwhile a hurricane is developing- one that could be headed straight for the Franklin Dairy farm-

This story explores the relationships between parents and children and siblings and examines the marriage of a couple trying to work through a bitter disappointment to find a common ground again.

Jenna may have been the one to have experienced the most personal growth- learning to balance her responsibilities with pursuing her dreams, but for me it was Betsy and Ty that held my heart in their hands.

I also liked the relationship between the two sisters, which also showed a lot of character growth as they worked came to realize the way their upbringing shaped them, and how to put preconceived notions, judgments and resentments in the past.

The story is a little ‘quiet’ at times, and I failed to fully connect to Jenna’s side of the storyline, becoming as frustrated with her as Ty did.

That said, I loved how the author was able to build the emotional tension to coincide with the intensity and path of the hurricane. Both events brought imminent danger and created two separate forms of suspense.

Mostly, this is lovely, heartwarming story. The drama is well written and balanced- although there is nothing here that is especially profound or memorable. Still, I loved Ty and enjoyed the realistic look at family and marriage and the gentle life lessons centered around the importance of communication.

The actual hurricanes played very little in the story so that was somewhat disappointing. The title more fit the idea of a storm coming and how people react. Jenna decides on short notice to leave her 2 girls with her sister Betsy, a woman who has had trouble having kids. Liked how we got to see their real personalities, what causes their stresses, how decisions in life affect later years. Betsy went overboard helping Jenna more than most sisters would have done. Luckily the girls were super behaved. Husband Ty was super nice considering the circumstances. Knew how it would end but nice reading the developments. ( )

“Hurricane Season” is Lauren K. Denton’s second book. It is a Southern Romance novel. Like “The Hideaway” and “Glory Road” it is a standalone read.

The story is told from three POVs – Jenna, Betsy, and Ty (Betsy’s husband).

Betsy and Ty Franklin are the owners of Franklin Dairy. Ty tends the cows and Betsy handles the day to day operations. Approaching 30, Betsy has given up having her own children due to repeated issues in conception.

Betsy’s younger sister Jenna; is a single mom to two daughters – Addie (5) and Walsh (3). Jenna is working at a coffee shop to support herself and her children.

Jenna gets an opportunity to pursue her lifelong ambition (photography) at a retreat – but she has to find someone to care for her daughters for two weeks. That’s where Betsy comes in. Reluctantly, Betsy says yes – it is only two weeks.

Jenna is having her own crisis at the retreat. After being given a rare opportunity to stay longer than the original two (2) weeks and work on her photography, she wonders if she should stay or rush home. She wants to have something to show for her life and feels she won’t get another chance to do something like this again. Jenna misses her children who seem to be adjusting well with Betsy and Ty. But, she isn’t being told the entire story either. Betsy is having issues in dealing with “two little reminders of what my body can’t do”. A very powerful line in this novel. And, that puts a strain on Betsy and Ty’s marriage.

As weeks drag out, and a hurricane makes its way towards the farm – Ty, Betsy, and Jenna have to sort out what they want in life and what their choices will mean.

“Hurricane Season” not only refers to the storm season and the approaching storm, but the storms in our personal lives – choices to make, lives affected, and the consequences of such.

Jenna undoubtedly wants to do more with her life than “serve coffee”, but she also has two small children who rely on her. She leaves her children with her sister without advance notice or discussing the impact it would have on her sister as well as Ty. True Jenna didn’t have much notice – but it should’ve been discussed more thoroughly with her sister. I also feel that Betsy should’ve been more honest with her sister throughout the story.

Betsy isn’t quite 30 when the story begins and has been trying to have children since she was 25. Seeing and caring for Jenna’s children, brings out some resentment which is understandable to a point, considering Jenna didn’t want kids. If I can be honest, 30 isn’t that old. Some women have kids in their late 30’s to mid 40’s.

Ty’s frustration was understandable. He knew the infertility issues his wife was having. His primary goal was to protect Betsy. He wasn’t good at communicating what he wanted either. He was wonderful in interacting with the kids though.

I felt sorry for Addie and Walsh. They adored their mother and didn’t understand what was going on.

Max and Gregory …

I felt that while Max was looking out for Jenna and her talent, he was failing to understand that she was the kids’ only caregiver. What did he expect her to do with her kids while she spent even two weeks at Halcyon? What if her sister decided to say no?

Gregory was another problem – like Max, he was only focused on Jenna’s talent – not her responsibilities. The two guys saw nothing wrong with pawning the kids off on Jenna’s sister, and by extension Jenna saw nothing wrong with it either.

Denton did a wonderful job with creating family strife as well as the impact of indecisions on our lives, and how it affects those around us. She definitely drove home the point about it appears selfish when we follow dreams/goals, but also about how we should think about more in life than “just making ends meet”.

Can we fit what we want into what we need? Is pursuing a “dream job” with “the potential” to earn more money worth sacrificing family, and a job that does pay the bills? At one point is it alright to make decisions with others in mind? Or should we only consider ourselves.

As a fan of Denton’s “Glory Road”, I wanted to read her previous work. This is admittedly the weakest of the three books she has released. It wasn’t a bad read, but it wasn’t as enjoyable as the other two. ( )

Hurricane Season by Lauren Denton is a thought-provoking novel of healing.

Betsy Franklin and her husband Ty own a dairy farm in Southern Alabama. They have weathered many storms (both personal and weather related) during the course of their marriage. When Betsy's younger sister, Jenna Sawyer, asks her to keep her two young children, five year old Addie and three year old Walsh, a brewing hurricane is just one of the worries the couple are forced to reckon with over the next several weeks.

Betsy loves her life on the farm despite the hard work and concerns that plague most farmers. She and Ty are deeply in love but she has struggled with giving up on a dream that, for unknown reasons, has failed to come to fruition for them. She loves her nieces but taking care of them is a bittersweet ache and she grows frustrated with Jenna's decision to pursue her own goals. Despite their enjoyment of their nieces, Betsy and Ty are forced to face the unhealed wounds they have been ignoring for several months.

Ty is a sweet man who is devoted to Betsy and the dairy farm. His hard work is finally paying off and the Franklin Dairy has become one of the largest in the area. He has a sixth sense when it comes to predicting a hurricane's path and as he tracks a growing storm in the ocean, Ty must also contend with the tempest building within his home.

Jenna put her dreams on hold after her unexpected pregnancies. She is conflicted about leaving the girls in order to take advantage of an unexpected opportunity to reconnect with her photography. However, Jenna knows a chance like this might not come along again and she wants to explore her options.

Hurricane Season is a captivating novel that is incredibly heartwarming. The storyline is well-written and relatable. The characters are multi-dimensional with realistic flaws and strengths. The farm is an idyllic setting and Lauren Denton brings it vibrantly to life. The novel's conclusion is heartwarming and quite hopeful. A deeply touching story that I truly enjoyed and highly recommend. ( )

Set against the backdrop of an impending storm, this is really the tale of sisters acknowledging what is missing in their lives, and determining whether or not to strive for it one last time. Betsy is married to a dairy farmer, Ty, and really loves her life, except that she has been unable to get pregnant. Her younger sister Jenna, is unmarried, has two kids, works in a coffee shop, but desires to be a photographer. When Jenna has the chance to attend an artists’ retreat one summer, she hurriedly drops the kids off at her sister’s farm and leaves, promising to return in two weeks. But those two weeks stretch into nearly two months. The tale is slow moving, more character driven than plot driven, as each sister lives the life she has wanted; Betsy has the kids and Jenna has her photos. But a storm is approaching, literally and figuratively, as each sister’s decision will affect the rest of her life. Though peopled with interesting characters, the plot is a little lackluster. After building some suspense with the coming hurricane, the end seems a bit hurried and falls a bit flat, and the conclusion doesn’t really conclude anything, leaving it open-ended. ( )
