hurrican season


“Weeks before landfall, the storm had begun as a puff of air, a gentle breeze that floated across Africa, picking up dust and dirt and red Saharan Heat. It coasted to the ocean were it spread out over the water like milk from an overturned bucket.”  Hurricane Season by Lauren K. Denton begins the same way, a gentle breeze. I loved so many things about this book: the setting, the building of the storm, the relationships, and an ending that feels like a beginning. Denton’s story of two sisters with different struggles and circumstances in the heat of summer and hurricane season makes for perfect beach reading.

Having experienced difficulty in having children without medical intervention, I could totally relate to Denton’s character Betsy Franklin. That being said, if you have recently been made aware of your own fertility issues, this book might need to wait a bit. Other than that, this book is an excellent read! I requested a copy of Hurricane Season from BookLookBloggers. This was a book I literally chose because of the amazing cover! I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated in any way.
