Before free love, sit-ins and the hippies of the late '60s, there was an era of strict rules governing social conduct that were well defined and enforced by public opinion and a strong moral code. It is during this time that a young coed, Joanna Ransome, is introduced to handsome married professor, Jared Fowler. That seemingly insignificant event changes the course of her life. Together they dare to defy the conventions of their time. Once they have begun, they are powerless to break the connection...until one of them takes a step that has tragic consequences. Seasons of Forgetting chronicles their tumultuous relationship through four decades. It is the story of two people who should never have fallen in love.

This novel could be another 'Bridges' (Bridges of Madison County...lest you forgot!) if the word gets around. The author has done an outstanding job in putting together a unique plot in a distinctive format that is guaranteed to leave you breathlessly spellbound. She tells the poignant story of a forbidden romance involving Joanna Ransome, an attractive coed with a promising future and Jared Fowler, a handsome dramatics professor who teaches at the small college she attends. Unlike Robert and Francesca's meager four days together in 'Bridges', Joanna and Jared's tale spans four decades. I won't go into too many details as you will want to see for yourself what fate has in store for this captivating couple who will tug at your heartstrings throughout the entire book. Ms.Howard is to be commended for her snappy dialogue and well-portrayed descriptions of scenes and characters that literally came alive in my mind throughout the entire novel. Keep that midnight oil burning...this one's a real page turner. And, spread the word. This is certain to become the next best seller!
