Author Donna O’Ferrall introduces us to The Troubles With Hope volume 2:
Having suffered the Troubles of Northern Ireland, Hope and Roy have moved to England with their twins. They are soon overjoyed to hear that Grace, their Grand-daughter, is expecting twins.
However, it soon becomes apparent that these twins are going to be a handful! To make matters worse, their dysfunctional father, Shep, moves his outspoken, brash mother Dorris into the family home. Chaos naturally ensues.
Meanwhile Susie, who has a love for wildlife and classical music, tries to escape the dark past she endured at the hands of Shep by submerging herself in music.
As the story progresses, the music and lyrics paint a picture while the happy and sad times unravel as they journey through life.
This book, the second of the series, is a winsome look at the travails of a family. There is heartbreak and joy, pleasure and pain; like a lot of other families. Donna has a unique way of tying the situations together with music. Music is such a universal fount of encouragement, enjoyment and courage. Your heart will be lifted up and you might shed a tear.
I found a handful of misspelled words, some misplaced words, and some troubles with the timeline. The Troubles With Hope volume 2 gets an increased score of 3 out of 5 stars because of the unique use of music throughout the book.
