Format: Mass Market Paperback
We think allot about our past while living in the present preparing for the future. That is what Jane Aaron has done for too many years and she wants to break away from it all. She grew up in a wonderful household with a loving extended family but never got over the fact that she was adopted.

Jane decides that in order for her to live in the present and prepare for the future she must take a step into her past and find her birth mother. She wants to know why the woman did not keep her and figure out how she fits into the world so all the pieces of Jane fit into the puzzle of the family that adopted her.

So Jane takes a leave from her teaching position, puts her relationship with her boyfriend on hold, packs up her belongings and heads out for Cedar Springs, TX to find her birth mother and discover some answers. To supplement her stay in Cedar Springs Jane takes a nanny position with an out of control group who need more attention than she has the time for. They are children are recovering from the loss of their mother and the man in charge of all of them, Asher is globetrotting trying to keep his business afloat. Not enough time and too much anguish is tearing this family apart and as Jane begins her search for information she helps the children, Riley and Levi find a way back to live without grief and sorrow.

What Jane never thought she would discover is a relationship with Asher and as the layers of their lives unfold it seems that destiny has brought them together? As Jane unravels the secrets of her life she becomes entangled in Asher's, but being wrapped up in his arms is not a bad place to find oneself.

Jane Aaron always knew something was different about her from the rest of her family. She was right. Jane was adopted. Jane loves her parents but now that Jane is grown up, she feels like a part of her is missing. It bothers Jane so much that when her boyfriend, Jonathan proposes to her, Jane turns him down. How can Jane expect to marry someone when she doesn't really know who she is?

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.

Happiness is discovering a Julia London novel that you never read! One Season of Sunshine is an extraordinary story about love ~ in all its complexities. Brimming with strong characters, Ms. London takes us on an enlightening journey of great depth and substance.

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.
