Johanna Thatcher’s life is all about control; after all, she knows how painful it can be to let her guard down. When she discovers she is pregnant, the ability to maintain control takes on a whole new meaning. Though she isn’t close to her sisters, a fragile friendship begins when her secret is revealed. Complexities surrounding her family, her job, and her decision to let the baby’s father play a role all collide when she learns that the baby’s life and hers might be in danger. As all three sisters struggle with their faith, God weaves their lives together, healing old wounds and opening up doors in their relationships with one another and those they love. When Johanna is forced to remain in the hospital for her last few weeks of the pregnancy, she learns to surrender control and finally let others inside the wall she had so carefully constructed.
VERDICT Vogt rounds out the “Thatcher Sisters” trilogy with this last installment. All three siblings realize the strength in family and faith as the story unfolds. Best read in order; readers who enjoy authors Karen Kingsbury and Lori Wick will love the Thatcher sisters.
