Book Review: A Song for My Mother, by Kat Martin

Last November, I reviewed a wonderful book by Kat Martin called The Christmas Clock. So, I was thrilled to hear that Kat Martin has a new book out: A Song for My Mother. This story takes place in the same small town of Dreyerville, Michigan, that was the setting for The Christmas Clock, but this is an entirely different story, not a sequel.

This time around, we meet Marly Hanson, who is returning to her hometown after a long absence. She eloped in high school to escape an abusive situation at home and never wanted to return. But her father has since died and her daughter is recovering from cancer -- and has requested to meet the grandmother she never knew. Now a single mother, Marly can’t possibly deny her daughter’s wish. Back in Dreyerville, Marly struggles to rebuild a relationship with her mother, and also fights a budding romance with the widowed sheriff since she is determined to return to her home in Detroit and start a new teaching job. Will Marly ever forgive her mother for protecting her abuser? And can Marly resist the attentions of the man next door and convince herself that he’s not to be trusted, like all the men she’s known? You’ll have to read A Song for My Mother to find out!

This is a sweet and tender romance that will have you rooting for a happy ending for everyone. I love the small-town setting and the realistic problems that plague the characters. I’d love to read more of Kat Martin’s books in the future, and I hope you’ll check out A Song for My Mother and Kat Martin’s other books through the links below.
