Moments We Forget is book two in the Thatcher Sisters series by Beth K. Vogt. This book focuses mainly on middle sister Jillian. She is struggling with getting her life back after going through treatments for cancer. She struggles with memory and doing her normal daily activities to the point she loses her job. Together with her two sisters, they try to form a book club, but the ongoing sister dynamics threaten their time together. Jillian feel’s like she is the lessor of the sisters and that she is to be the peacekeeper.
We also catch up with sisters Johanna and Payton. Johanna is very career focused and has been in a long term engagement that never advances to wedding plans. Payton struggles with the loss of her twin. And struggles with making the decision to follow Jesus for the right reason.
This is a very good contemporary Christian fiction story that focuses on women’s issues such as infertility, adoption, unfaithfulness and death and grief. While this is part of a series, this story is written in a way that it is also a stand alone story. The author introduces the characters and gives good background information. I appreciate the way the author handles the ongoing health concerns Jillian has. It is very realistic. I also appreciate how the author writes of Payton’s struggles with wanting to make a commitment to God for the right reasons.
I received a copy of this book from Tyndale’s my readers reward club. This is my honest review.
