Money problems arise and Eli decides to go away for the summer to a faraway logging camp and Lora knows it is for the best. When Eli brought Will Bennet, a drifter, home as a hired hand to take care of things while he's gone Lora does not want him around. Like no one Lora has ever met, Will makes breakfast for Lora, wants to hear her thoughts, and most of all recognizes her sorrow. Lora finds herself wanting to be a mother figure to Will, although Will feels differently about Lora.
When Eli comes home after a logging accident, Lora must face her feelings for her husband and the tragedy that robbed them of their happiness. I found A Season in Eden to be a wonderfully moving book. Megan Chances writes like no other, moving and and touching, not covering up for mistakes and with unperfect characters.
Living all my life in the Pacific Northwest I know exactly where Yakima is and the hardships the settlers must have endured. Hot, hot summers and cold, cold winters. Sagebrush and hills. Nothing for miles but beautiful blue sky and dust. My husband's family is from Selah, just a few miles from Yakima. We'd go to the Yakima Valley for the weekend and all I'd think about was which wineries to tour. Now the Yakima Valley is full of wineries, vineyards, hops, apple trees and cherry trees. Nothing like it was 115 years ago. I think that's what I loved best. The history and I could imagine exactly what it was like.
It's a moving story, if that's what you want to read. No romance...period.
