Beth K. Vogt: Moments We Forget

By Kelly Bridgewater

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 Thoughts:

Moments We Forget by Beth K. Vogt invites readers to return to the Thatcher sisters. This story reminds me a lot of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott after Beth dies. How are the three sisters getting along? What secrets keep them tied together or apart? I really enjoy seeing the fresh reality of their emotions and dilemmas. In Moments We Forget, Vogt dove deeper into the faith issue. A sister grapples with the idea of God, another grasps onto a full relationship with God, and the last one is still skeptical. Not that the entire plots focuses on coming to faith. It really is a small part of the novel. The sister dynamics run the story. I stayed glued to the pages and wanted to know more about each character. Being the middle child, I can relate to Jillian in a lot of instances in this story. I am the good kid who had to pick up the slack of my troublemaking siblings. I really love this series, and can't wait to read Johanna's story. Fans of Little Women or Catherine West's stories might enjoy this novel.

I received a complimentary copy of Moments We Forget by Beth K. Vogt by Tyndale Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
