Overview

Michelle Baron sat on the edge of the couch, her heart racing as she looked at the envelope in her hand. I guess this is it, she thought. The return address seemed harmless enough. Fairfield Lab, Portland, Oregon. But this envelope contained information that could change her life forever.

Michelle and her family rejoice when her father begins to regain consciousness after an unsuccessful suicide attempt. But a long journey awaits, as they seek to clear his name of the embezzlement charges that drove him to this desperate act. The days of their vigil at the hospital drag into weeks, and Michelle finds herself repeatedly drawn to the newborn nursery. Observing couples leave with tiny babes in their arms, her heart is stirred, and she begins to yearn for a child of her own. However, an unexpected twist will threaten her new dream.

Through the Tears -- the second novel in the Sandy Cove series -- delivers a message of hope in the midst of longing and disappointment.

    Michelle continues her struggle back to God and finding him rele

    Michelle continues her struggle back to God and finding him relevant to her life.  Like many Christians, she hangs on to a verse but doesn't take it in full context, bringing her more stress than relief.  It was good to see her cut things off with Trevor and surround herself with positive friends.  Michelle's dad continues his recovery and discovers that the truth will always be brought to life.  Each character is given enough time to let you get to know them as they were a friend. The issues brought up in the book were current and makes you think about the consequences for today but was brought in an enjoyable story that is hard to put down.  I was given a copy of this book for my honest review.

    Through the Tears, the second book in the Sandy Cove series, picks up with Michelle’s dad improving and continuing to heal, even though he has a long road ahead of him. After everything with her dad, Michelle decides she wants to start a family right away, instead of waiting to finish college like she and Steve planned. What they didn't expect is the difficulty in getting pregnant, following a bad adoption attempt and other complications in trying to have a child. In the meantime, her male ‘New Age’ friend keeps coming into the picture because of his continuing attraction to Michelle, even though she lets him know she is not interested. It seems that everything is going wrong with Michelle, causing more stress for her and Steve. 

    I really enjoyed this second book in the Sandy Cove series as we continue to follow Michelle and Steve and their problems in life. While Steve is pretty strong in what he believes, he is also patient, and doesn't let life get him down, Michelle is very impatient and wants what she wants right now. And if doesn't happen, she drives Steve crazy. I had a difficult time with Michelle and her attitude throughout this book. She just didn't give Steve any credit for what he wanted, or the advice he gave her. She was always so negative with him and ready to snap back at him if he had a question. At times she acted like a spoiled brat! But that is one thing that made the story more interesting. 

    Ms. Hines does an excellent job of creating characters and developing them so well. And she deals with the issues of infertility in a really good way, showing the feelings involved with the mom and dad. This is a really awesome continuation of Out of a Dream and I highly recommend it! And don’t forget the first and third book in the Sandy Cove series as well.

    I don't want to spoil the story for those who haven't read the first book in this series. I will tell you that it is very uplifting. It has twist and turns to keep you wondering what's going to happen.
    P.S. Don't miss out on books 1 & 3 in the Sandy Cove series.

    Through the Tears was just as wonderful as Out of a Dream. I enjoyed traveling down the road of starting a family with Steve and Michelle, and grew more connected with each character as the story developed. It was definitely one of my favorite reads! I'm looking forward to reading Into Magnolia now.

    The second book in Rosemary Hines┬┐ Sandy Cove Series, Through th

    The second book in Rosemary Hines’ Sandy Cove Series, Through the Tears, proves to be another must read. This book picks right up where Out of a Dream leaves off, answering some of those questions that lingered in your mind as you read that last paragraph.
    Michelle finds herself looking at life differently following a suicide attempt by her father. She begins to take a deep look into relationships and spiritual matters to find the answers to her own questions. A treatment plan at an infertility clinic gives the book an unexpected turn of events that will keep you turning the pages for more. Although their decision was a difficult one to make, Steve and Michelle find themselves dealing with much more than they ever thought that decision would bring to their lives.
    Infertility is very difficult and emotionally painful. The feelings and emotions surrounding that pain and turmoil are so real in this book. The characters have such depth that you feel their pain. I love the emotion that Rosemary’s writing brings to the story. Tears filled my eyes more than once as I turned the pages of not only the book but also the pages of their innermost being. I personally have experienced that pain and she mirrored it so well within these pages.
    Biblical principles, as well as the working of the Holy Spirit within our lives, are openly shared.
    In exchange for my honest review, a copy of this book was provided to me.

    Through the Tears deals with suicide, infertility, adoption, and abortion as well as infidelity and then there is forgiveness and hope.  Rosemary Hines truly gripped at my heart as I was cheering Michelle on.   Of course, there is a "bad guy" in every story and Trevor fits the bill for that title.   Michelle also finds herself having to defend her newfound faith in the aftermath of her experimentation with the New Age spirituality practices.   My heart broke for Michelle as they experienced infertility and the pain associated with it.   I was constantly finding myself waiting with bated breath as I read.  I loved this book and am eager to read the third book in the Sandy Cove series. 
    I received a free pdf version of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

    I loved the sequel of the Sandy Cove series, "Through the Tears". Of particular interest to me (working in the medical profession) was the accurate depiction of Michelle's father while in the hospital and subsequent rehab. The story kept me wanting more and definitely a page turner!! Each lesson Michelle learns is a direct reflection of the bible and the book definitely ministered to me. I look forward to the sequel coming out...a MUST read!

    Very good book, a must read!

    "Through the Tears" captured my attention from the beginning. I couldn't wait to read more as I got the time to do so. I love to read and I have many books that have been put aside due to a lack of interest. But Rosemary Hines has once again developed a story in such a manner that one can't wait for the next page. Each character has come alive to me and I can see them as real people because the story is one that has affected many lives. She has become a favorite author to me. Great job! Waiting for the next book in the Sandy Cove series!
