Tory Sullivan struggles with the demands of motherhood and her desire for a career. An aspiring writer, she wonders whether she'll ever be able to develop her talent while raising two young children. But perhaps the problem isn't a matter of time, but of Tory. Cathy Flaherty is rediscovering the grins and groans of the dating game. The spunky single mother of three teenagers, she's also learning the urgency of instilling sound values in her children as they attend public school. Sylvia Bryan is an empty-nester. Now that her children are gone, she struggles with a gnawing lack of meaning. Her husband, Harry, wants to become a medical missionary. But for Sylvia, the best part of life seems like nothing but a memory. Brenda Dodd faces an uncertain future. Her nine-year-old son is getting sicker, and there seems to be nothing they can do. It is every mother's nightmare -- a child who will die unless he receives a heart transplant. As the women of Cedar Circle band together to save a dying child, they learn that each moment is precious in every season under the heaven. Taking the best and worst of human circumstances -- the tender moments, the laughter, the tragedies, and the triumphs -- Beverly LaHaye and Terri Blackstock weave from them a poignant, warmly human novel. Gently uncovering the inner struggles, stresses, and joys that surface among neighbors living in a quiet cul-de-sac, the authors show us the power of ordinary lives being knit into a strong, many-textured fabric of family and friendships. Seasons Under Heaven depicts the deepest emotions of a woman's heart, and those circumstances, both thrilling and tragic, that test and strengthen Christian faith.

Barbara Douglas5 Stars Out Of 5February 27, 2010Barbara DouglasI purchased this book with a you will love it or your money back guarantee on the front. I read it in 1 day and gave it to a friend at Church. She stayed up until 3:00 in the morning and having to get up at 6:00 to teach school. She was upset just a little bit. She in turn gave it to someone and it went around our church to most of the women and they all loved it, just as I did. It was 2 years later that my book was returned to me. It is the best series book I have ever read. We all talked about the Cul-de-sac books and still do.

Donna Faull3 Stars Out Of 5February 22, 2008Donna FaullThe Blackstock-LaHaye series of books are very good though some of the people are a little over the top non Christians. Still, the real-life events and the resulting faith exhibited in the books serve to make interesting and thought-provoking reading.
Joanne5 Stars Out Of 5May 27, 2005JoanneAlthough this isn't my favorite series ever, it's a must read for contemporary fiction lovers.
