The one thing Jane does know is that she was born in Cedar Springs. Jane moves to Cedar Springs to find out more about where she came from.
Asher is a single dad trying to raise his two children, Riley and Levi. Asher is desperate for a nanny. So when Jane applies for the job, Asher is thankful. The more time Asher spends in Jane's company, the stronger the attraction he feels towards her grows. Though, when Jane finally learns the truth about her birth mother...will Asher and Jane have a future together?
Having been adopted myself I could understand where Jane was coming from. I like Jane have wonderful parents. Though, I have never felt the need to seek out my birth mother. I liked Jane. She was sweet and not intimated by Riley. I wasn't really feeling the romance between Asher and Jane. I kind of pictured him more as the father type then the romantic male lead type. I do have to admit that I thought this book moved a bit slow at times. I kind of had an idea of who Jane's birth mother was and what had happened from the beginning of the set up of this book but didn't quite know if I was right. It seemed to drag a little when Jane was searching and I wanted the story to speed up. Overall, One Season of Sunshine shows glimmers of hope and sunshine.
Jane Aaron is a bright, lovely young woman who, at the age of 28, is second guessing decisions she thought would bring her fulfillment. Working on a thesis to complete her Masters, juggling a job and a relationship with a man she planned on marrying, she finds suddenly that nothing is making sense to her. Adopted at birth, into an affectionate Italian family, she feels pulled in a direction to locate her birth parents. Floating in uncharted waters and drowning with guilt, Jane moves to the place of her birth.
Asher Price, CEO of his thriving Advertising Agency, is fighting emotionally with everything he has to be there for his kids since his wife's death a few years earlier, in a car accident, caused by her drunk driving, which also killed another driver. Unfortunately, his business leaves him little time for his 5 year old son, Levi and 12 year old daughter, Riley, who are anguished and frustrated by their loss and not enough time with their dad to communicate their fears.
If you believe in fate, you'll love the alignment of forces that throw these people together, in the same place, when Jane is hired to work as a temporary Nanny for them. The dialogue is exceptional, capturing the emotions in this volatile group.
Bipolar Disorder is a difficult topic that Ms. London brilliantly explores and handles with great sensitivity.Read more ›
