Guest Review from Donna
What I think you should know:
There is a Season by Andrea Boeshaar is the third book in the Shenandoah Valley Saga. It is Christian historical fiction. While it is the third in the series it can be read as a standalone.
What you might need to know:
Payton develops an addiction to opioids after Nurse Emery gives him a medication that relies heavily on Poppies.
What I think about this book:
I will admit that I was very intrigued by this book because I had an ancestor die in a camp during the civil war. What would have been different in our family if he hadn’t died and had come home. That is exactly what happens in this book, Carrie was told that her husband Peyton had been killed and after months and no sign of him she allowed herself to move on and fall in love with his best friend. When he is found to be alive we start on an emotional rollercoaster as he fights for his life only to come back as a different man than the newlywed who left Carrie to fight for his country. While I rooted for Peyton to heal I felt sorry for Carrie and Eli whose future had changed once again. Nurse Emory was a true piece of work and the perfect villain for this book. I appreciate how much detail and research the author put into creating a story that came to life on the page. I do wish that we had been given a little bit longer of an ending. I will definitely read more books by Boeshaar.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
