Keeper of the Stars by Robin Lee Hatcher
When her mother died from pneumonia, Penny Cartwright was heartbroken. But now, after burying her younger brother just 12 years later, she is devastated. Anger, guilt, and sorrow cloud Penny’s mind, and the last thing she wants is to be reminded of her pain—but that’s exactly what happens when a stranger comes to town.
Trevor Reynolds has been chasing fame for more than a dozen years, but his musical career can’t get off the ground. While on the road, an accident kills his young drummer, Brad Cartwright. Trevor wasn’t behind the wheel, but he still blames himself . . . and so does Brad’s sister, Penny. Now Trevor finds himself in Kings Meadow, determined to follow through on his final promise to his friend.
Still feeling the pain of Brad’s death, Penny and Trevor must learn that forgiveness is the only thing that can heal their hearts. And if they do forgive, something beautiful may rise from the ashes of heartbreak.
Penny has to learn to forgive Trevor for what she perceives as his fault her brother Brad is dead. Trevor has to forgive himself for feeling responsible for Brad's death. Even though he isn't. It was just a tragic accident. Penny has a very, I hate to say controlling but I'll say it anyway, attitude about how things should be done. She had her brother Brads life all planned out without him having any say in the matter. He was going to be an engineer and live close to home and help on the family ranch. Brad wanted to be a drummer and she believes Trevor enticed Brad away. Penny has to learn to give up control and let God take control. Trevor has to learn to forgive himself and accept God and then let him tell him what he wants with his life.
I found this book to be entertaining and would recommend it to anyone.
