Looking for a new book to cuddle up with while escaping the heat? I have two great selections for you and even an opportunity to win a copy!
Time passes with little regard of human perspective. At times painfully slow and often it slips past more swiftly than we’d like. Sammie Young is a testimony to the changing of life’s many seasons. As life deals its harsh blows, she stands strong. Now, with two of her five children left at home, change whizzes toward her at the speed of light. Frequently down, but never beaten, Sammie steps out in faith to face the new and exciting seasons awaiting her family.
Seasons of a Life is the first published work by D. H. Barbara. It is a beautiful story of forgiveness, faith and trust. From the first pages, I felt like I was with old friends as I was drawn into the story of Sammie and her family. The characters and events that happen in Seasons are real. I loved this! Seasons of a Life isn’t a “love at first sight and we all live happily ever after” story.
As the lives of the characters play out, life isn’t all about hugs and warm fuzzies. There are struggles; real it could happen to you struggles, there is a sadness, there is silliness and there is laughter. As I read about Sammie and the changes that she was facing, I laughed and cried. I couldn’t wait to finish the book and I hated that it ended.
How wonderful that Seasons of a Life is just the first book in the Lakeville series! D. H. Barbara has a second book out set in Lakeville called Sunnie’s Rainbow.
Sunshine Young has moved back to Lakeville. Her life has changed and she’s making a new life for herself back in her hometown. A fender bender begins a whole new chapter in Sunnie’s uncomplicated life. Complications abound as Sunnie struggles to truly put behind past hurts and open her heart to the Lord’s way.
This is a story of redemption and second chances…..all told in D. H. Barbara’s way of making you laugh and cry. I loved how from the very first pages, Sunnie’s personality is quite evident and you can’t wait to see where she is going to go. You know a Sunnie or you might even be a Sunnie. You will read this story hoping she will make the right choices, you will be sad when she fails and rejoice with her when she does.
The one thing I strongly disliked about Sunnie? The next Lakeville book is not published yet. I can’t wait to see what happens in Lakeville next!
