My Review 

Stormy is aptly named. She has a temper. It erupts when she thinks she is mistreated but even more so when someone attacks her younger sister. Her husband, estranged in this novel, describes living with her as living with a whirlwind. Her character is a good study in quick action before thinking over the ramifications or even knowing all the information.

Since Stormy is the main character in this second novel in The Weather Girls series, and she and her husband are living apart, there is much about marital strife and the tough road to reconciliation. Throw in a jealous woman trying to ruin Stormy's marriage and snag her husband and you have more excitement.

There are many relationship issues explored in this novel, such as judging before allowing the other person to explain fully. Another issue relates to siblings and spouses and God and relationship priorities. There is the big issue of forgiveness. There is a good deal about the most important relationship of all, with God.

This is the second novel in The Weather Girl series. (You can read my review of the first one about Sunny here.) This novel would be best enjoyed by reading the one about Sunny first.

My rating: 4/5 stars.


About the Author

Jennifer Lynn Cary likes to say you can take the girl out of Indiana, but you can’t take the Hoosier out of the girl. Now transplanted to the Arizona desert, this direct descendant of Davy Crockett and her husband of forty years enjoy time with family where she shares tales of her small town heritage and family legacies with their grandchildren. She is the author of The Crockett Chronicles series and The Relentless series as well as the stand-alone novella Tales of the Hob Nob Annex Café and her recent split-time novel The Traveling Prayer Shawl.

More from Jennifer

What were you doing in 1970? Were you even around? It’s funny how for some that year is crystal clear in their memory and for some it’s chapter out of a history book.

I remember having lunch with a literary agent who’d been a guest speaker for a writer’s conference I attended. He mentioned that it was strange to him that now 1974 was considered historical. Worse, for me, it was the year I was graduated from high school! Talk about making one feel old.

And yet there’s so many wonderful things about setting a story in the late 60s- to early 70s.

The research is amazing—TV broadcasts, the music, fashions, events—all that is easily assessable on the internet. Plus, want some firsthand anecdotes? Plenty of people around to share their memories.

Unlike going back to Colonial, or Victorian, or Civil War eras, this was easy. Sort of. Or overwhelming with so much to choose from. Ha!

So, with Stormy, the second book in The Weather Girls trilogy, I touched on how the Women’s Movement of the day might have and an effect. There was a lot of rethinking of the male and female roles, a shifting of the paradigm. Should he open her door? Should she let him? When was it okay to think traditionally and when did you need to consider your partner might not like a traditional role? The ERA movement was a BIG deal back then.

So, even if you don’t remember it, I hope you will have fun going back to 1970 Kokomo with Stormy and me. I look forward to seeing you there. 😉

Abundant blessings!
