“Seasons of Love” ~ Book Review

Aug 1, 2016 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Andrea Boeshaar’s book, Seasons of Love.


As is my custom, if I could ask Andrea one question about Seasons of Love it would be — “What made you want to write a novella collection with proposal’s in each of the different seasons?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!

From the Back Cover:

An Apple a Day — Dr. Brian Coridan needs a break. He vacations in quiet Blossom Lake, Wisconsin where he plans to ponder his future as a physician. He never expects to be distracted by Talia Fountain, the town’s “health food nut.” She’s both charming and annoying and their philosophies about medicine are worlds apart. Then why can’t Brian keep his distance? Could it be she holds the key to what’s been missing in his medical practice?

September Sonata — Krissy and Blaine’s marriage is in its autumn season…or is just over? Life in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has grown dull. Boring. But there’s a handsome, sophisticated new principal at the Christian school where Krissy teaches. Their attraction to each other is undeniable—but is it strong enough for Krissy to call it quits with her frumpy fireman husband?

Let It Snow — Everyone in the small Door County, Wisconsin town thought Shari Kretlow and Brenan Sheppard would marry someday—until Shari ran off with another guy. Decades later, Shari is a widow and finds herself stranded in a Wisconsin blizzard on Christmas Eve. The Sheppards open their doors and invite her to stay. But there’s a problem. Dr. Brenan Sheppard, now a missionary in Brazil, is home for the holidays and he’s about to propose marriage to a woman on his missions’ team. But when he sees Shari, long-lost feelings come to light. Can a past romance be resurrected? What’s more, can it survive?

These short but simple novellas were a pleasure to read! I loved Andrea’s selection as she wrote a love story/engagement set in three of the different seasons.  Andrea’s combination of love and faith was very inspiring.

An Apple a Day was a story that had me laughing out loud! I loved Brian and Talia’s completely different characters. It was great to see the development of the two characters as they learned to trust each other.

September Sonata serves as a real reminder that marriage can weather any storm — when both parties are willing to work together. Krissy and Blaine were a “real” couple going through “real” issues. As I read their story, it was very moving and I felt for both Blaine and Krissy in what they were going through.

Let It Snow is by far my favorite of Andrea’s! I loved how Sherri and Brenan came together after loving each other for years. It was such a sweet story and I really loved how I could jump right into the story and fall in love with the characters right away.
