This is the story of Josh and Rocky, two young teens from entirely different worlds, who collide in the heat of a New York summer. A naïve boy from California, Josh comes to New York to visit his Uncle Jake, a sentimental elder whose eccentricities are only exceeded by his warmth and passion for life. Rocky is the beautiful daughter of a rabbi from Brooklyn, whose one dying wish is to understand what it means to be a complete woman before she runs out of time. With seemingly little in common, the two young friends quickly find that they are incomplete without each other and that the span of a brief summer is all the time they may ever have. It is with this realization in mind that they are able to embrace hope in the face of a tragedy few relationships could endure.

This book is very different from Lawrence Kelter's other books. It's amazing how he can write so well in so many different genres. This is a tender moving story about young love and life. It takes place in Brooklyn where two young "almost" teens meet. They have more on their minds than the normal growing up things that teens usually think about, since Rocky is ill. Josh doesnt know this at first and falls for her, dreaming of her in a way that a 12 year old boy would.The story then unfolds into something more, and they both grow up a lot quicker than expected. Bring in a warm and caring great-uncle with memories to share and it gives you a great story. The ending is so touching that it made me cry!
This is a touching story about two coming of age teens that delivers on all levels. The characters are fully three dimensional and the dialogue is so authentic you will smile as you read each passage. My favorite character was the the charming Uncle Jake. I found him laugh out loud funny. This book touched me. I give it my highest recommendation.
Its like Love Story the movie but better, a testiment to the power of love. The story is about young love, im older and enjoyed it, but its also a great book for young adults. The characters are very richly defined and original. Season of Faith is a must read for all ages.
I find all of Larry Kelter's books to be on the high-end of innovative and explosively creative. With every new book he writes, he gets better, sharper, older and wiser. His quality for a self-published author is something I respect and appreciate as an avid reader and editor myself. In terms of this sweet novella, it amazed me how much punch he could put into a coming-of-age story in so few words. His characters were outstanding: my personal favorite, Uncle Jake. A slice of life you won't want to miss.
So much different then Larry's other works. This was fantastic,
