Magnolia Storms by Janet W Ferguson

About the Book

Magnolia Storms
A Coastal Hearts Novel
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you….

Maggie Marovich couldn’t save her father or her home from Hurricane Katrina, but she’s dedicated her life to meteorology so she can warn others when the monster storms approach. Except…she works three hours inland and rarely risks returning to her childhood hometown of Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Both her single-parent sister and the ship pilot Maggie once loved refused to leave the Coast, despite Maggie’s requests. Now a hurricane’s headed toward Mississippi, and Maggie’s sister is seriously injured, leaving Maggie little choice but to head south—into the storm.

The water and tides flow through Josh Bergeron’s veins, and he can’t imagine giving up piloting—even for the love of his life, the infuriating Magnolia Marovich. He tried to move on without her, marrying and having a child. But after his wife abandons him and his little boy, his career choice is threatened by the weight of his parental responsibilities. Moving next door to Maggie’s sister and sharing their child care seems like the perfect set-up. Until Maggie blows back into town.

Being forced to lean on Josh for help washes up the wreckage in Maggie’s faith. Where was God during the destruction of Katrina? Why do some prayers seem to go unanswered? Between the hurricane looming in the Gulf and another gale raging in her heart, can Maggie overcome her past and find the trust to truly live? 

My Review

I have enjoyed so many of this author's books, and Magnolia Storms is absolutely no exception! The characters are so wonderfully described and the plot just flows seamlessly. The personal level on which our author writes the book is very evident. The sweet romance is engaging and heartwarming. The struggles that Maggie and her family face have plagued us all in one way or another. I was inspired to remember who the Lord truly is and that He alone knows the best plan for our lives if we just trust in Him. In light of the most recent devastation of Harvey, I found myself glued to the page in an even more real way. Contemporary, full of heart, and totally inspiring, our author presents a must read! Can't wait for more in the Coastal Hearts Series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but all opinions given are entirely my own.
