I Loved this book. I loved the fun characters of this story and how enjoyable and relatable they were. I also enjoyed the small town life how everyone knows everyone and will help no matter what and will always welcome newcomers. I also loved how the story flowed and it draws you in and keeps you going through out. I will say that I did find two parts very predictable but still very enjoyable. I loved how the author used real tough situations in the story that really got to you and got you thinking. This book is amazing and so worth the read and could not put it down.
When a man with a life plan and a woman whose only goal is daily survival for her and her ten-year-old daughter, will their pasts and prejudices ruin a promising future?
In Youll Think of Me, Robin Lee Hatcher weaves a story of letting go and learning to trust in the beauty and grandeur of southern Idaho.
Brooklyn Myers has known a lot of disappointment in her life. All shes known is people leaving her. Her mother. Her husband. Even her father has given up on her.
Upon learning of his best friends decision to leave the land hed promised Derek to his wife and child instead, Derek is engulfed by disappointment. He never much cared for Brooklyn, and here she is again. Ruining his best-laid plans.
As a former resident of Idaho, I love reading about the state in stories. And Robin Lee Hatcher is one of the best in describing the beauty and grandeur of the southern portion of that state. But the authors true gift is in the heart of her stories.
In the struggles of her main characters, and even a couple supporting characters in a small Idaho town. Youll Think of Me touches on so many difficult issuesabandonment, trust, abusein a poignant way.
This one is another winner from Robin Lee Hatcher.

What a read! This book brings together a community of characters so easy to know and fall in love with. I felt every person could find someone in this book they could relate to, making this a book so many can enjoy.
Brooklyn is someone I began to admire as this story progressed. She was left with detrimental circumstances as a teen, but she rose above and made a life for herself and her daughter. She is a hard worker and wants nothing more than happiness for her daughter. When she learns her husband has made arrangements for her daughter to have a home in Thunder Creek, she bravely packs up their life and hits the road. The obstacles she faces, and the former life she must face, makes her someone every mom can pull inspiration from.
The people of Thunder Creek welcome Brooklyn with open arms and I found myself wishing I could visit this sweet little town. Each person brings a different personality to the story, and each person has a unique way of showing God's unending love. I loved how the town rallied around the relationship growing between Brooklyn and Chad. Their attraction grew in such a natural way, and I looked forward to seeing where it would go.
When tragedy strikes twice in one day, we see the town come together to care for both Brooklyn and Chad, and we see them grow closer than ever. I thought this was a perfect way to finally bring these two where they were always meant to be.
This is a great read and a book that needs to be on your reading list.
Another great book written by this author. The story was how hard it is to trust when you had no one in your life that you can. Brooklyn Myers Mother had left her as a child and her Father never showed her any love growing up. He mistreated her all of her childhood. She runs away and marries Chad Hallston who left her a few months after they married when he found out she was pregnant with his child. Brooklyn raises her daughter Alycia by herself. She has one true friend Esther how is dying. She gets a letter from a lawyer that her husband Chad has died and left her and their daughter his parents old homestead. Derek Johnson had a agreement to buy this house and ground when he come up with the money. Derek also gets a letter from Chad telling him that he left the home to his wife and daughter and wanted Chad to be a Father figure for his daughter. The story is how Brooklyn became able to trust again and open her hard to love. It is a story of Chad being able to forget about his dream and opening up his heart as well.
I have been reading Robin Hatcher's books for a very, very long time and I've never been disappointed in one. Not a one. My all time favorite of hers and one that has been read more than once is The Shepherd's Voice.
This one, set in Idaho, is another wonderful addition to her impressive arsenal of books. Hatcher always writes with a great depth of emotion and stirring spiritual elements and lessons for the reader to take away. This one included how believers deal with fear and rejection. Fear is something I struggle with and it ministered to me. I was in tears during one scene. I truly enjoyed this book. When I see Robin Lee Hatcher has a new book, I'm always looking forward to reading it.
