Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Summoned home from her convent refuge by her greedy, vindictive husband, Johanna of Stanrudde is stunned to find her town starving, herself accused of adultery, and her husband plotting the destruction of the only man she's ever loved. Strong, vivid writing and compelling characters quickly pull readers into the harsh reality of 12th-century Britain, and a multilayered plot and well-handled sexual tension keep them entranced. In the fifth and final volume of her "Seasons" series, Domning (Autumn's Flame, Topaz, 1995) uses dual time periods in alternating (and somewhat confusing) chapters to provide a well-researched, intensely sensual story of the medieval merchant class that nicely completes the set. Domning lives in Scottsdale, Arizona.

More About the Author

It's time to get serious about my writing again. That's been hard to do with my life framed by milking cows, making cheese and raising vegetables. But Faucon and Edmund, the sleuths from my new mystery series, are chattering away in my head, demanding that I at least start taking notes. Even more motivating is the fact that the temperatures here in Arizona are climbing toward the 100 degree mark!

And now, back to your regular programming.

Denise Domning is the award-winning, best-selling author of two historical mystery novels--Season of the Raven and Season of the Fox--and eleven historical novels as well as the co-author with Monica Sarli of one gritty, hard-bitten memoir of addiction and recovery. Of the three genres she frankly prefers the rats, grime and fleas of the Twelfth Century over the ghettos and drug use of modern Kansas City. For Denise, writing means using words as her time machine and painting an accurate portrait of a past. Open any of her novels, whether Twelfth, Thirteenth, Sixteenth or Nineteenth Century, and step into a bygone era. As one reviewer put it "...you live the life and the language, smell the odors of unwashed humanity, and hear the sucking sounds as your flimsy shoes slog through mud and muck." Now doesn't that sound romantic?

Denise lives on a farm in Cornville (yes, Cornville), Arizona, where she plants veggies, tends her cows and has an Easter egg hunt every day.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Overall Rating: 3.75 // Action: 3.5 / Emotion: 4.75 / Romance: 4 / Sensuous: 2 / Intrigue: 4 / Medieval Flavor: 5 / Humor: 3 / Tears: 6

"A Love For All Seasons" is the fifth and final book of Denise Domning's "The Graistan Chronicles." It took the author a while to tie Robert of Blacklea, now known as Robert, the Grossier of Lynn, to the other brothers in this series, but she managed to do so with flair and suspenseful interest. The book could easily be read as a stand-alone book, but the reader would miss the nuances that pass between the supporting characters Alywna (mother to the wool merchant, Jehan) and Richard, Lord Meynell (Alywna's other son).

Although Rob was a merchant, he epitomized the attributes of honor and integrity that were espoused to be characteristics of a medieval knight. It was easy to feel such compassion and sympathy towards Rob as his story was revealed using visits to his past as an intriguing story took place in the present. So easy was it to identify with the pain and angst Rob suffered as a child, that his story drew many tears of compassion.

It was more difficult to feel the same compassion towards the heroine, Johanna. Mostly because she has spent the past sixteen years fighting bitterly with the husband she hated, Katel le Espicer. Johanna was the spoiled child of Walter the spice merchant, yet her father forced her to marry a man he despised over a boy he loved. Johanna's character was redeemed because she finally admitted to herself that she had made matters much the worse between herself and Katel because of her selfishness.

Domning wove a deeply intriguing tale of how Rob and Johanna overcome the evil machinations of Katel to extract revenge upon the two people he hated most in the world.

Denise's vision in this book is outstanding. And though flashbacks are not always helpful or entertaining, I found this book clever in its format. The backstory is so pertinent to the characters' personalities and motivations, that Denise really pulls it off when many writers couldn't do it nearly as well.
This story will take you back centuries, while we modern folk find it hard to conceive of how hard life was then. Most of us never know what it is to starve or have to bow to the dictates of an evil master, or to a marriage contract arranged by a parent when you were younger than seven. Thank goodness!
This book is so well done, you live the life and the language, smell the odors of unwashed humanity, and hear the sucking sounds as your flimsy shoes slog through mud and muck. If you desire to be transported and still keep your shoes clean, read this book. It's vivid in its imagery and authentically detailed. Where's the romance? Rob and Johanna will keep you on the edge of your seat, and make your heart swell with love. -Lee Emory

I have read Winters Heat/Springs Fury/Summers Storm/Autums Flame & the Warriors Maiden & An Impetuous Season - & would rate them 5 stars. I had a difficult time getting thru thisbook. It may have been the flashback writing which, to me, was too often & distracting. That said, story plot & characters are great; tho felt book could have been shortened by at least 1/4 or 1/3. I must say I am very impressed with Ms. Domning's writing and am looking forward to "The Warriors Wife" which I just purchased.

A Love for All Seasons is the fifth in Denise Domning's 5 book season series. Unlike books one through four, however, it can stand alone. The other 4 books in the series only tangentially relate to this one.

History and Romance are my favorite topics. So I really enjoy Historical Romance! "Historical romances", however, rarely contain much history. The main characters are usually 21st century people in old time houses and clothes. This is particularly true of romances, which take place in the Middle Ages. When I read them, I enjoy the romance and hate the history.

Unlike almost all novels set in the Middle Ages, Ms. Domning's characters are true to their time period. They think and act like people living in the time in which they are situated. Real people who lived at the time of her story, who are acting exactly as they did, also appear in her books. This adds to the feeling of reality. I was impressed to see my 25 greats uncle mentioned in one of her books! At the time the story took place, he was well known and powerful. Today only medieval historians (and a few history buff family members) know about him.

The plot of each of Ms. Domning's books revolves around a problematic aspect of medieval culture. Being romances, the main characters end up happy and in love. But the aspects of medieval culture she examines probably resulted in many unhappy endings.

Other readers' reviews strongly suggest reading this series in order. Although each book can stand alone, I agree with this suggestion. From first to last they are: Winter's Heat, Summer's Storm, Spring's Fury, Autumn's Flame, A Love for All Seasons.

This review is about A Love for All Seasons in which Ms.
