This is probably true of most sisters even if we don't admit it! Moments We Forget focuses on the middle sister, Jillian, who has survived breast cancer but has to face the realities of life after cancer. Beth Vogt has created wonderful realistic characters! I received my copy of Moments We Forget through a Goodreads giveaway. This is my honest opinion.
Lori5 Stars Out Of 5Oh my goodness! Wonderful story!June 25, 2019LoriI absolutely loved Moments We Forget by Beth K. Vogt! It is the second book in the Thatcher Sisters series and you won't want to miss it if you love reading Christian Women's fiction.
Jillian is trying to find her place in this world since being diagnosed with breast cancer. She has always been the peacekeeper in her family especially when dealing with her sisters and doesn't want to be in that position anymore. She has recently lost her job since she has been struggling keeping up with work after her cancer treatments. She thought she and her husband were on the same page with what they wanted for the future, but his recent honesty has rocked their marriage and has them questioning whether it will survive. She is struggling to find what in this world will make her happy and in doing so finds herself seeking God for the answer.
I'm looking forward to reading more books in this wonderful series!
I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
Sarah OSouth DakotaAge: 35-44Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5good readJune 6, 2019Sarah OSouth DakotaAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the first book for me by this author, I really enjoyed it. This book follows the journey of three sisters each faced with a time in their lives that they have been hit the hardest. When the book first starts out you are reading about Jill, I would have to say most the book is about her and the journey she faces after dealing with breast cancer. However there are parts of the book that you read about the other sister, I wish those were labeled who you were catching up with, as the book is written in a first person telling and sometimes it takes a second to realize the characters have changed. This book is a good clean read, some parts will really get to your heart. Over all I really enjoyed this read.

BeccaRae5 Stars Out Of 5Must-Read Series!May 20, 2019BeccaRaeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Last year I read and reviewed the first book in this series called Things I Never Told You. Since then I've been anxiously awaiting the next in the series to release. Many of my thoughts towards this book are similar in nature to the first. This book turns it's main focus to Jillian, the middle sister, but all three sisters are present throughout. It's told in first person through Jillian, and third person through Johanna.
Families are complicated, and can have their ugly and beautiful moments even within a 10 minute span. There is a rawness that people that have that is often only released when they are with their family or those who are the closest to them. The Thatcher sisters have a whole lot of obstacles in their lives individually, and their relationships may suffer from frequent tension, but at the end of the day they realize that they are sisters and nothing will change that.
What I loved most about this book was how personal Payton had made her journey to faith. She wasn't sure what she believed, but she knew she believed in God and was hungry to know more. What she didn't want, was to become a Christian for the wrong reasons. She didn't want to decide she was a Christian so she could wear her deceased sister's necklace, and she didn't want to do it so she could have a relationship with Zach. She recognized the enormity of the decision on a personal level and wanted it to be a direct relationship between her and her Heavenly Father alone before anyone else was included in the picture. I absolutely loved how this worked itself out throughout the novel.
There is no denying that Jillian seems to be struck with obstacle after obstacle in her life. She has a whole heap of emotions that she struggles to work through to just to feel like she's keeping her head above water. I would have liked to see her faith journey start a bit earlier so that it could have been a larger part of her story in this one, but I have hope that a third book will be released that can show her walking through more of that. Being a middle child myself, I can relate to a lot of the "middle-child-itis" she deals with. I hope that her future is brighter for her.
I thoroughly loved this story and highly recommend it. I would keep in mind that this is the second book in a series, and this is one that I wouldn't recommend reading out of order. There is too much backstory in the first book that is necessary to fully appreciate and understand this one.

kickiInyokern, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5JadedMay 17, 2019kickiInyokern, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3Beth certainly technically wrote a lovely story that held your interest and gave you deep insights into the real circumstances our lives are slammed by. However, just once I'd enjoy reading a story where the husband does NOT hit his wife with the TOO familiar adultery card. Aren't there any marriages that manage to make it to the end by being...faithful? I saw it coming and wanted to close the book; but have a rule to finish what I start. Hmm...that might be a slogan for those who marry. That just took the wind out of the journey for me.
