    Excellent Contemporary Christian Fiction

    When I began reading this book it was apparent that there was a lot of tension in the relationships of the three sisters in Moments We Forget. Jillian is the middle Thatcher sister and she considers herself the peacemaker between her older and younger sister but she also feels like she is a little overlooked. She feels like she has been branded "just Jillian" and that she has worn this brand most of her life! Jillian is now fighting the after effects of her cancer diagnosis.The chemo and radiation treatments have zapped her energy, messed with her memory and her ability to complete her daily tasks, and she is currently unable to have a baby. Jillian also senses a distance developing between her and her biggest champion, her husband Geoff. As I read this story, I realized that having a sister (or sisters) may not always be as perfect as some would have you believe. Family dynamics don't always make for a perfect sibling relationship and these Thatcher sisters are also missing the comfort that faith can offer. The Thatchers are non-believers during much of Moments We Forget but Beth K. Vogt does show two of the sisters reaching out to God. I was especially touched as Jillian contemplates her problems and her family's lack of belief in God. As she wondered about God loving someone as insignificant as her, Jillian realized that if she could find her way to a big, loving God who could fix all of her problems she would run straight to Him! Vogt allows readers to witness how God has a way of turning the coldest hearts warm and drawing the most reluctant people closer to Him. Moments We Forget is the second book of The Thatchers series and I didn't feel like I needed to have read the first book. I do, however, hope to read Things I Never Told You because I believe I would have an even deeper understanding of these three sisters. I look forward to learning more of their story! This is a contemporary Christian fiction novel and it focuses on some of the issues that many of us have encountered: death. grief, infertility, adoption and unfaithfulness. It isn't, however, all doom and gloom because the author also reminds us of the importance of family, of moments to remember and moments to forget, and the ever-present hope that comes from believing and trusting in God! I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the author and Celebrate Lit but I wasn't obligated to write a positive review.

    This Book Changed How I See My Sister

    Last week I read a book that was hard to read.  Not, like, technically difficult, but challenging.  It didn't make me cry then, but it might now.  It was a book about cancer, and the chaos that comes after it.  A book about hope that comes from Jesus and not from career, family, finances, friends, or health.  But it was especially a book about sisters.  The way we try to do the right thing, but hurt each other anyways.  The way we should be closer than best friends, but we still just don't understand each other sometimes.  And how Jesus changes who we are as sisters, too. Moments we Forget tells the story of Jillian after she beats cancer.She's still caught in the middle of the battle between her sisters, even as they try to intentionally build a closer relationship by starting a book club together.  She's struggling to go back to work, struggling to keep track of things at home, struggling in her relationships...just struggling.  And no one understands, not really.  How lonely she is, and yet how hard it is to keep it together long enough to hang out with people.  How scary it is to forget things or get lost. Jillian reminded me of my own sister, who has battled not cancer but a TBI. It gave me such insight into what her life has been like in the two years since the accident that turned our lives upside down. And such insight into how I want to be there for my sister in ways I haven't been in the past. I definitely recommend this book - especially if you have a sister! I received a review copy of this book; all opinions are my own.

    Captures Sisters Realistically

    Stellar follow up to Things I Never Told You. You will be immersed from the get go into the continued lives of the Thatcher sisters. It is deep, poignant, and reflective. You will need a few tissues which is a good sign that it has reached into the depths of your heart. I loved this paragraph, “God started our stories the day we were born ——we just never knew that growing up. The minute we realize that, things change. Our thinking changes because we’re more aware of the Author of our story.” This captures the beauty of their lives and where they are heading. I can identify with each sister and feel the pain they have each held inside. I just think their stories blow me away as they are real, raw, and captivating. I can’t wait for the next one. I received a complimentary copy from the author. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

    Real life portrayed

    just read the last page and all I can say is wow! These characters are real. They face real issues and problems and nothing is sugar coated. They could be anyone you might meet on the street. My emotions were up and down, back and forth throughout. And I’ve experienced some of these situations personally myself. I could relate! All three of the Thatcher sisters were facing different problems and issues. Every time they got together it seemed that an argument or misunderstanding erupted. Jillian, the middle sister, was tagged as the peacemaker on most occasions but she had her own problems. I felt the most for her because of her perceptions of herself. She had always tagged herself as “Just Jillian”. Her older sister excelled professionally and her younger sister was the athletic star. And on top of that, an earlier situation with her grandfather just broke my heart. This was a great read! I finished all 418 pages in record time, it was that good! I got so engrossed in the story and the lives of the characters that all else faded into oblivion. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through the author and Celebrate Lit but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
