    The third in the Seasons of the Heart series by Anna DeStefano,

    The third in the Seasons of the Heart series by Anna DeStefano, this is my first introduction to both this series and her writing.  While there is a romance that is slowly forming in the background; this story is focused more on the trials and struggles that the characters experience, or are overcoming, as the story progresses. 




    Characters are well developed, with a few moments that felt inconsistent, or were more tell than show.  Fin and Chloe both seem older than their years; easily explained by the rougher patches that they have endured, but their speech patterns often feel stilted and the dialogue with them, in many places is awkward.   Kristen, while dedicated to her job and wanting to help seems to have a reserve of fear and tendency to run that is just unlikable. Yes, it mostly works out in the end, and we do see her reserve comes from her fear of connection and commitment should she be hurt, but she often had moments that pulled me completely out of the intended emotion I feel the author was looking to create. 




    Law is struggling to prove himself worthy, and his ex-wife is a bit over the top and too successful in her agenda to destroy Law, for a community repeatedly mentioned as being ‘close knit and supportive’.  While Law is struggling, he also finds serenity in helping others: his conversations and interactions with both of the children is accurate and heartwarming.  Both he and Kristen are broken and battered by life, with Pullman carloads of baggage trailing behind them, and mountainous obstacles that will not lessen until they take a risk.  And several times I saw them starting to let go, but never quite achieving what they claimed to have achieved.   




    I enjoyed this story, the pacing irregularities and the occasional inconsistent behaviors of the characters were momentary blips: the book passed reasonably quickly and had me curious about more from this little town. 




    I received an eArc copy from the publisher from NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
