    It was just okay for me

    What would you do if you saw your dead husband while grocery shopping? Would you chase after him demanding answers? Would you silently think you're losing your mind due to your grief? Or would you shake off the image as simply wishing it to be your husband, but knowing it is just a complete stranger?

    Having read glowing reviews about The Widow's Season, I was eager to read it. Unfortunately, it fell flat for me. As I read Sarah's story, I realized I didn't feel anything for her.nothing. Here's a story about a woman who recently lost her husband and thinks she sees him and I don't feel any sympathy? Compassion?

    The characters in The Widow's Season were hard to connect to. Sarah and her brother-in-law, Nate, seemed to be somewhat aloof. Perhaps it was their reaction to losing David and the events (which I won't share to avoid spoilers) that occurred after his death. Or maybe it was Ms. Brodie's intent to write the characters this way. To be honest, this was the third consecutive book I read dealing with the death of a love one. It's possible I just felt numb after reading two previous tragic stories.

    I think The Widow's Season would be an excellent selection for a book club. I figured out the ending pretty early in the book and wondered what other readers thought as the story unfolded. I wanted a chance to speak with other readers about my feelings (or lack thereof) for these characters and hear their thoughts as well. Perhaps speaking with other readers would challenge my opinion about the novel. (If you're interested, the author provides a reader guide that could be used for a book club discussion.)

    Despite my disappointment with this novel, I would recommend it to other readers. I enjoyed Ms. Brodie's ability to write in such a way that I could instantly see the scenes in my mind. I plan to read Ms. Brodie's future novels.

    Not the greatest thing ever

    I completely disagree with those of you who loved this book. I had to force myself to get past Part 1. I must admit, though, that Parts 2 and 3 were pretty entertaining. The ending left me totally confused. The book goes from he's a ghost to he's alive, and then ends with, he's a ghost. I didn't understand it. Maybe I just need to reread it.

    The Widow's Season

    I was very hopeful for this book as I really liked the premise, a widow seeing her assumed dead husband in places and then connecting with him to work out her grief. However, part of the plot was quiet predictable and I was look for a surprise, something I didn't see coming. Also, the main character sometimes behaved in ways that seemed inconsistent. I thought the writing was fine and I am not sorry I bought it or read it, but it is not something I would definitely suggest to anyone. I did like it enough to look for another by this author.

    Poor and disappointing. I really looked forward to this book and

    Poor and disappointing. I really looked forward to this book and truly was excited. However, this story was a convoluted mess. Brodie is a good writer in terms of verbiage. However, this book makes little to no sense! The story line is conflicting, confusing and lacks uniformity. The story is a page turner and you read on waiting for the climax but the novel stays flat lined. From start to finish the cold tone, disconnected and superficial disposition of her protagonist is so off putting that when Brodie attempts to incorporate into the story, this idea of emotional resolve, it fails miserably. All that aside, from the near ending to the end of the book, when it finally comes to head, what widow would respond that way to such events? It is silly even for fiction.

    The idea of this story sounds intriging but really falls short. Let me say that if you like novels with some dialog, do not get this book...there is none. You pretty much figure out the plot early on so that takes away from the enjoyment as well. Save your $$$, honestly.

    light reading

    This book is an easy read. The book is somewhat predictable until the ending which is open to interpretation.

    Not Impressed

    Maybe I'm just an idiot, but I was very confused by this book. For me, the book itself showed a "I made this myself" sort of look. All the way around it didn't seem like something you would find in Barnes and Noble, it felt unfinished.

    Fabulous Book!

    This book was a wonderful read. It grabs your attention from the first line. Laura Brodie has an incredible writing style and her storyline will take you by surprise. I highly recommend you read this book. Great for bookclubs as the discussion options are immense.

    An Emontional Rollercoaster

    One of those books you can't put down. Orginally bought the book for vacation. Started it the day I bought it and finished it 2 days later way before vacation. Wasn't expecting the ending.

    An enjoyable read

    The Widow's Season has a very interesting plot. Dead husband who may or may not be dead. It reminds me of Amelia Earhart (who I just happened to be reading about while I read this book as well) and how people speculated that she didn't really die but just assumed a different identity, moved to New Jersey, and lived a whole other life with a new husband, etc.

    The first part (out of four) was really spooky. Sarah feels like she's being watched and is seeing her supposedly dead husband at places like the grocery store. While I knew it was her husband, it was still eerie because he's behaving like a stalker, watching and waiting for his victim at her most vulnerable. This was actually my favorite part because I enjoyed being a little scared and racing through the pages waiting to see what was happening.

    My only concern is that everything isn't fully explained. Most is, but there are a couple circumstances that stand out as unexplainable. At the risk of revealing spoilers I won't discuss particulars, but I question Sarah's mental stability even after the end of the novel.

    I am left both satisfied and slightly confused by the ending. I suppose it is best this way. It allows the reader to decide what the truth is, which one of the discussion questions in the readers guide actually suggests.

    A recommended read.

    Laura Brodie's "The Widows Season" is a gem!

    A thriller that you can't put down on first reading...but something more that you will return to many times over the years. I'm looking forward to Brodie's next novel!

    a wonderful relationship drama as a couple drifting apart in life reached out to each other in death.

    Sarah McConnell sees her husband wearing his Yankees cap at the grocery store. She is shocked as David drowned kayaking three months ago though his body was never found. Later Sarah senses David is near and is not scared because she knows he will not harm her. She realizes as she sees him on the couch, she is not mourning him, but what they lost in the last few years of their marriage. He tells her they need a revival like what happened to him on the river when the storm suddenly hit and tipped over his kayak. He got to shore and made it back to their cabin, but felt it was too late to call Sarah. Instead he started painting. -------------------

    Her brother-in-law Nate and Sarah are there for each other in grief but soon make love, but she is upset in the morning filled with guilt. Sarah comes to the cabin to see David and pick up paintings for a show a gallery owner is putting on of his works. David is thankful Sarah has not given up on him while Sarah is thankful she has a second chance to spend time with David until he asks her if he is dead to her. David wants Sarah to join him in a warm spot, but will she?-------------------

    The premise of this fine paranormal contemporary, his visiting his widow after his death, is intriguing and well executed so that readers will believe David came back. The cast is extremely strong especially the lead characters and the brother. Though Sarah's affair with her brother-in-law is intended for the audience to understand two grieving people finding some solace with one another; instead it feels more of a shocker device to upset David. THE WIDOW SEASON is a wonderful relationship drama as a couple drifting apart in life reached out to each other in death.------------
