A Season in Eden is a painful read filled with heartache and grief. It is not the type of book I, the love and laughter type,normally choose to read. Written in first person it is the story of Lora, a young woman whose dreams have been shattered by tragedy. It is the story of her coming to terms with her grief, facing it, and reestablishing a relationship with her husband Eli who loves her more than his own life. Although not a typical love story, this book left an emotional impact on me like very few do and I ended up finishing it in one tear blurred sitting. I was wholly satisfied and give it my highest recommendation.
