Book Review - Keeper of the Stars


She blames him for her brother's death. Can she let go of resentment and open her heart to love?
Penny Cartwright found it difficult to understand why her younger brother would choose to join a country singer's band rather than return to Kings Meadow after college . . . and the separation strained their relationship. Then a car accident made certain her brother could never return.

Trevor Reynolds has chased stardom in Nashville for more than a dozen years, but it remains out of his reach. After an accident kills his young drummer, Trevor goes to Kings Meadow to keep a promise---and perhaps to discover what truly matters in this life.
Thrown together by circumstances, Penny and Trevor must learn to give and receive forgiveness. And if they do, perhaps something beautiful can rise from the ashes of heartbreak.


Best-selling novelist Robin Lee Hatcher is known for her heart-warming and emotionally charged stories of faith, courage, and love. The winner of the Christy Award for Excellence in Christian Fiction, the RITA Award for Best Inspirational Romance, two RT Career Achievement Awards, and the RWA Lifetime Achievement Award, Robin is the author of more than sixty novels.


This is book 3 of the Kings Meadow series, however, you don't have to have read the previous 2 books to understand what is going on. It definitely stands on it's own.

Penny is a small town librarian is is protecting her heart even more these days after the death of her younger brother in a car accident. She blames Trevor for this accident and for taking her brother away from her and their father. She wanted his life to be something entirely different than it ended up being. Her brother had dreams of being an musician and she couldn't understand this. When he died, something inside of her died, too.

Penny lives with her father, Rodney, as he has back and health issues. Her mother died several years ago and Penny feels a strong obligation to take care of her father.  They have a cattle ranch and she tries to help her father as much as she can.

Trevor comes to Kings Meadow because of he promise he made to Brad, Penny's brother, as he was dying. He isn't sure why he's there but feels the obligation of fulfilling his promise to Brad.

This book is about forgiveness and a search for faith in God. Penny has so many things she's holding against Trevor, whether they are warranted or not. Trevor is trying to find a meaning to life after trying year after year to make a name for himself in the country music industry. It's really a lovely journey of following these characters through each level as they find what they are searching for and what they need. I enjoyed this book very much and I think you'd enjoy it, too!  I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
