Overview

A Beautiful Season is a message of hope that through Christ, joy can be found in all seasons of life. The pages of this book are intended to teach young women how to cope after a dating relationship's end in a healthy, Godly way. Singleness can be a season of beauty, joy, and finding one's purpose in life, but only if we allow Christ to work in us and through us at this time.

Written from the perspective of a 23-year-old young woman who experienced a difficult break-up, the author, Alexandra Savage, has been there. She knows that the kind of pain caused by loss of love is the worst kind of pain. After much searching, Alexandra found that the only solution to this pain is Christ Himself. He offers the comfort and love that is so desperately needed during this time in a woman's life. A Beautiful Season takes you on a spiritual journey to find strength, healing, and identity in Christ during this precious season.

Reviewed by Jane Finch for Readers' Favorite A Beautiful Season: Finding Your Identity in Christ After A Dating Relationship Ends by Alexandra Savage relates the story of a broken relationship and the effects it can have on a person’s life. It looks at what the Bible says and contrasts that with life experiences. The book looks at life priorities and the way to live a Godly and Christ-focused life rather than a life that is self-centred and based on emotions and feelings. The book examines situations that can divert a Follower of God from His Word and teachings, and looks at ways to cope with and overcome crises that may come our way. The author, Alexandra Savage, very cleverly compares well-known stories such as Peter Pan and Wendy to current day relationships, and examines how Wendy’s life changed when she met Peter, but eventually she returned to her family and her home. This analogy worked really well to explain the turmoil and uncertainty that can face someone dealing with a relationship breakdown. The book uses a number of analogies which help to clarify the feelings and emotions that can be experienced in such a situation. There are Bible references to support the writer’s observations, and the book is written well and structured well with the result that it offers hope of a future not relying on earthly needs and desires, but a future centered on Christ. This is a book that examines our innermost feelings and can encourage a Christian to rely fully on God in all walks of life. The reference to ‘Seasons of life’ is particularly appropriate and will certainly cause anyone who seeks closure in their life from a painful experience to turn to Christ as their Comforter.

A Beautiful Season was a blessing to find and read after going through a difficult relationship because it brought me back to a place where I could understand that God's love for me and plan for my life was more important than what someone else wanted. Breakups are tough enough and when feelings of despair and hopelessness set in, breaking through these feelings and times are equally as trying. Author Alexandra Savage gets right to the heart of things by encouraging readers to put their faith in Christ and not in an unhealthy dating relationship who could ultimately let you down. After reading this book I have so much hope for the future and am excited about the things God is doing in my life.

Reviewed by Lori A. Moore for Readers' Favorite A Beautiful Season: Finding Your Identity in Christ After a Dating Relationship Ends by Alexandra Savage recounts the author’s testimony of having been in a three-year-long serious dating relationship when God revealed to her that He had something more in mind for her life. Savage discusses never settling for someone and instead praying for God’s plan for you because relationships aren’t always the answer but God always is. Thirteen chapters walk you through a message of hope about dating relationships, singleness being a blessing from God, and God’s will for you that will make you content. Each chapter contains a story, scripture, a song reference, and prayer. We are asked to be FROGS – Fully Relying On God and to live life as a daughter of God. A Beautiful Season: Finding Your Identity in Christ After a Dating Relationship Ends by Alexandra Savage is a blessing wrapped in a book for single women. I liked the comparison between a cubic zirconia and a diamond to remind us that we are precious gems in God’s eyes. She elaborates that we are not fake diamonds but valuable, beautiful ones. A Beautiful Season: Finding Your Identity in Christ After a Dating Relationship Ends is a gem in itself, teaching us that the only comfort is Christ Himself and that being single can be a beautiful season of growth and self-discovery. I liked the personal stories and Alexandra Savage's warm and caring tone as she gives advice straight from the heart and straight from scripture.

Reviewed by Charity Tober for Readers' Favorite A Beautiful Season: Finding Your Identity in Christ After a Dating Relationship Ends by Alexandra Savage provides relationship advice from a biblical viewpoint. Savage writes a raw and positive message, recounting her own past experiences with relationship endings. She counsels young women to stay positive and embrace life, whether single or not. Sometimes, I think people consider it bad if they are single, but being single can open up other adventures in life and also lets a person get to know themselves better without adding another person to the mix. The book goes through many common situations and emotions regarding losing a relationship. When things end, it's only natural to feel grief and heartache, but there's always hope and there's always moving forward. I think readers, especially those currently experiencing relationship loss, will find inspiration and encouragement in this book. The author speaks in a very down-to-earth and easy-to-follow voice and guides readers through the ups and down of relationships. The tone is friendly and honest, which gives a sense of authenticity in my opinion. Savage strongly voices her faith and how it carried her through tough times, and gives readers a biblical perspective on her views and advice. I think this in-depth viewpoint - from someone who's already gone through it - will help others see that there is an end to pain and loss. Being single can be a blessing in disguise and I think young women especially would benefit from reading A Beautiful Season by Alexandra Savage.
