About the Book

To onlookers, Carrie Ann Bell Collier might appear to be the dutiful wife, sitting at her unconscious husband’s bedside. But she feels like a hypocrite. Instead of trusting her intuition, she allowed herself to believe Peyton was dead. And then she fell in love with his best friend, Eli Kent.

Except, Peyton wasn’t dead, and now Carrie will do anything to keep him alive.

My Thoughts

There Is a Season  is written by Andrea Boeshaar. This is book three in the Shenandoah Valley Saga Series. I have not read the other books in the series and this can be read as a stand alone. The author provides enough information in the book where you will not feel like you are missing anything.  I don't know if I have ever read this author before. However she writes historically accurate. This is right after the Civil War. 

Carrie Ann is sitting at her husband's bedside. She did not think that he had survived. However, here he lays unconscious. There is a nurse that really grinded my gears. She seemed to act like she held Carrie's husband's fate in her hands. Carrie Ann wanted her husband to get better - so she did everything that Nurse Emory asked her too. There is a lot of faith elements that are woven in. There is also a lot of the aftermath of the Civil War. The author did her research and did a great job. 

The characters are well written, storyline is intriguing. I will go back and read the first few books in the series. 

I received a copy of this book through the Celebrate Lit Blogging Program, all thoughts are my own.
