Love through the Seasons
Four short contemporary romances take readers to the author’s native state of Kansas.
Spring – Stormy Weather
Elise Jost is a non-traditional student just one credit short of graduating. A hard-working woman determined to establish herself in the business world, she enrolls begrudgingly in a Renaissance appreciation course that will complete her credit hours. Her life’s direction takes a different course when she makes a high grade with Professor Ian Hunter.
Autumn – Falling for Love
Karen Armstrong Jacobs has been widowed for five years and has taken in her mother to live with her. When she learns her mother’s three sisters need a place to live, she opens her home up to them as well. Now there are a lot of repairs that need to be made to the house for safety’s sake. Enter Dan Polk, a widower with a contracting business and a heart for ministry, who makes over the house and Karen's lonely heart.
Winter – Silent Nights
Lynn Murphy always dreamed of having the perfect marriage, and for a while she delighted in her dream come true. But Frank’s job has gradually overtaken their lives. When their plans for an anniversary trip at Christmastime are ruined by yet another business obligation, Lynn decides she’s had enough. She runs away to her grandfather’s house looking for answers. Only there does she begin to glimpse the surprising ways that God will satisfy the desires of her heart.
My least favorite story is Silent Nights (the winter tale). Lynn Murphy and her husband, Frank have been married for ten years. Frank is gone on business trips more than he is at home. When Frank cancels their tenth anniversary trip to Mexico, Lynn decides she has had enough. She heads to her grandfather’s home to think things through. There is a lot of bickering which got on my nerves. Frank and Lynn both have valid issues. The problem is that neither one has bothered to share their concerns with their spouse. This tale was lacking. I thought there was too much repetition. My favorite character in this story is Gramps. Love through the Seasons comprises four sweet, feel-good romances that transports readers to Kansas.
