Seasons' End by Will North
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First, a short personal intro. The past six months have been the longest months in my life since I left the corporate world. A close friend is in the midst of being diagnosed with Parkinsons at a young age. The book club I’ve worked with for many years is growing, evolving. My three small ones aren’t as small as anymore. As life changed, books became my escape. When I started Seasons’ End I immediately knew that this was different. This is one of those books that you feel honored to read, the kind where you are humbled by any kind of social media contact with the author.
Yes, It’s that good and you can read my past reviews, very few authors have left such a mark on me. Will North has a way with words that not only enables you to escape into the story, it reaches out to your insides emotionally. His tone is gentle and there is nothing forced about how he writes or introduces his characters. Everything has its perfect time and place.
If I had to pick one scene as my favourite, it would be when Adam walks along the beach on Labour Day. How many times have we wanted to be alone to think and just as we do that, the memories come flooding back locking out the silence and beauty in front of his. Powerful stuff.
Would I recommend this read? Absolutely, I also recommend buying the paperback version because this is definitely a book you'll want to keep with you at different stages of life.
Offensive content?: I received this book with a PG rating but I don't think so. Based on language and settings, I would recommend this book for anyone aged 15 and above.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
