And now that she’s free, she wants to make a difference. With the help of her warm, close-knit circle of friends—including her high school crush, Travis Wilson—Hannah begins turning her home into a safe house for other women who’ve endured the pain she’s known. But even as life and laughter return to Hannah’s home, she’s haunted by the memory of her dangerously unstable ex. With a second chance at love on the horizon, Hannah must face down her past in order to let the sunshine back into her life.
Abuse. It’s never a pretty picture. Yet, in The Lullaby Sky, Carolyn Brown manages to create a real, if periphery, picture of the best and worst of what a marriage cam become. Without getting too descriptive The Lullaby Sky gives a glimpse of how one – or three – can pick up the pieces and move on to better things.
I loved these characters! I don’t think I could even pick a favorite. Hannah who is overcoming a terrible marriage and hoping to find love again. Liz who refuses to admit she’s stuck in what Hannah escaped. Travis who has loved Hannah forever and stands on the sidelines hoping his love will be returned. The great-aunts who add humor into any situation. And most of all, the darling child who wraps them all around her little finger.
Some Advice from Hannah O’Malley About Second Chance Love:
I’ve known Travis my whole life and down deep in my heart I knew he was a good person, had a heart of gold and was a wonderful man. But after what I’d lived through the past several years, trust was a major issue. I had to learn to trust my heart again, to open it up and give Travis a chance.
So I had a long talk with myself and decided that it was not fair to judge this good man, by another man’s short comings. It was time to let go of the past and move on to the future. Then I rememberd something that my grandmother used to tell me and applied it to my life: Never shut the door to an opportunity. It’s better to open the door, invite it in and feed it chocolate cake than to chase it down the road after it’s already a mile away.
If you’ve been blessed with a second chance, if opportunity comes knocking on your door and there’s a hero standing there with paint on his shirt, a quirky little smile and a twinkle in his eyes, just open the door wide and tell him to come right on it. Feed him chocolate cake and give him a chance. You never know, the second chance might be the stars that light up a lullaby sky.
