About the Book
Book Title: Moments We Forget
Author: Beth Vogt
Genre: Christian Women’s Fiction
Release date: May 7, 2019
Jillian Thatcher has spent most of her life playing the family peacemaker, caught in the middle between her driven, talented older sister and her younger, spotlight-stealing twin sisters. Then on the night of her engagement party, a cancer diagnosis threatens to once again steal her chance to shine.
Now, Jillian’s on the road to recovery after finally finishing chemo and radiation, but residual effects of the treatment keep her from reclaiming her life as she’d hoped. And just when her dreams might be falling into place, a life-altering revelation from her husband sends her reeling again.
Will Jillian ever achieve her own dreams, or will she always be “just Jillian,” the less-than Thatcher sister? Can she count on her sisters as she tries to step into a stronger place, or are they stuck in their childhood roles forever?

I’m launching Moments We Forget, book two in the Thatcher Sisters series, and I’ve just turned in the final book in the series. I’d love to share book three’s title with you, but I don’t know what it is. (Of course, book three might have a final title by the time you read this—that’s part of the fun of prerelease deadlines.)
One thing I do know: the theme of “Little Women gone wrong” is woven through all of the books . . . thanks to the Thatcher sisters: Payton, Pepper, Jillian, and Johanna.
Sisters, be they real or imaginary, can be complicated.
Of course, there are sisters who have close relationships. They “get” each other and love doing life together.
But then there are the sister relationships that are like mismatched socks. Or those expensive jeans you loved in the store, but when you bring them home, they never quite live up to those moments in the dressing room.
Such are the Thatcher sisters. Johanna, Jillian, Payton, and Pepper grew up in the same family. They’re all tall. They love Broncos football and board games. But in so many ways their lives are like different movies because they each made different choices. Choices that changed and separated them. Moments We Forget continues to explore whether the Thatcher sisters can find a way to understand each other enough to bridge the distance between them.
My Review of Moments We Forget:
I had just finished reading Things I Never Told You, the first in the Thatcher sisters’ novel series, and I couldn’t wait to pick up where I left off in Moments We Forget. I was not disappointed. This series is a little different for me in that the main characters are not women of faith when the series begins … but it’s so much like life that I was brought into it and held captive throughout both books.
I love how the author keeps the differences between the sisters very natural and how it’s so like authentic families, where just because two people are born into the same family, their experiences, personalities and unique interests make them very different people.
I love how close the family is, but yet there is something missing and that is God. I love the natural flow of the storyline, the different plots that are introduced and continued from one book to the other and I can’t wait to learn more about Johanna as I believe she is getting to the point where she is more vulnerable and might need a breakthrough.
I am really loving this series, cannot wait to read the third book and am grateful for the opportunity to read this one so quickly after reading the first. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit and was under no obligation to write a positive review. All opinions are mine.
