Book: There Is a Season

Author: Andrea Boeshaar

Genre: Christian Historical Fiction

Release date: September 1, 2021

To onlookers, Carrie Ann Bell Collier might appear to be the dutiful wife, sitting at her unconscious husband’s bedside. But she feels like a hypocrite. Instead of trusting her intuition, she allowed herself to believe Peyton was dead. And then she fell in love with his best friend, Eli Kent.

Except, Peyton wasn’t dead, and now Carrie will do anything to keep him alive.

My Thoughts 

I enjoyed this novel set near to and at the end of the Civil War. I’ll admit that I didn’t really know what to expect. It was interesting to read about what life was probably like during this period of history. I feel like I learned some new tidbits that I didn’t know before (or I did, but it’s been a while since I took U.S. History in college), for example, how Confederate soldiers, including those who surrendered to the Union, were considered non-citizens when the war ended and Andrew Johnson took over the presidency after Lincoln’s assassination. 

I liked getting to know the characters and how their lives had been changed by the war. I also liked how we get to see a wife pay any price to se her husband get the medical care he needs, although the price soon becomes a lot more than what she bargained for, and ultimately reaping the consequences. 

And then there was Nurse Emory, probably the worst character in the book, not because she isn’t well-written, but because she is so unlikable (which she is supposed to be). At first I thought that she was just an odd bird, but then halfway through the novel, I found myself so infuriated with her that I wanted to throw my book across the room (I didn’t because I was reading it on my Kindle, and that would have had disastrous results). That’s all to say that the author did a tremendous job with writing Nurse Emory and the emotions that she evokes in readers. If I were to compare her to another literary character, I’d say she is like Uriah Heep from David Copperfield, except a lot more arrogant. 

Overall, I really liked There Is A Season and I hope to read more of Andrea Boeshaar’s work in the future. 3.5/5 Stars. 

*I received a copy of this book from the author and Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review.
