About the Author
The idea for a novel can come from anywhere. THE LAST SEASON, THE STORY OF A MARRIAGE, started with an image of three middle-aged adults sitting at a dinner table, a married couple and an unmarried man. When the husband asked the man what his intentions were, the fellow replied, "I intend to marry your wife." The image was a gift, and I had to run with it.

Reviewed by Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite We all know them. Those established couples, the ones who’ve been together through thick and thin, who have been married for years, and no one could imagine them not together, the couples that other people aspire to be. Such is the case with the marriage of Buddy and Ginger Middleton, the main characters in The Last Season, The Story of a Marriage by Marian D. Schwartz. High school sweethearts who’ve been married for twenty-seven years, their marriage is a stable one, a good one. But when Ginger is offered a job by the wealthy and debonair Avery Laird, and Buddy has reservations about Laird's true intentions and tries to convince her that she won’t be adequate for the task, things begin to crumble in the Middleton marriage. Will Buddy and Ginger be able to make it back to their former selves, into the relationship they once found so comfortable and supportive? Do they really want to? The Last Season, The Story of a Marriage is a wonderful inside look at a faltering marriage, one in which the couple involved began to take each other and their love for granted. Author Marian D. Schwartz is skilled at developing characters that the reader truly cares about, and I found that to be very much the case with Buddy and Ginger. This book would appeal to any reader who loves great fiction, romance, and stories about relationships, flawed though they may be. The only suggestion I would have for a reader would be to make sure you have enough time set aside to read it from start to finish, because once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it down until the very end.
