This is the second book in a planned trilogy. Both this and the first (A Trick of Light) take the very "tricky" topic of bigamy and weave it into a story of great insight and character development as they delve into very real portrayals of human nature.

The interaction of the characters over a period of time allows the reader to become acquainted as if friends. The connection is strong and I eagerly await the third book to see how the tension and story resolve.

The book has humor, pathos, love, hate, connection, friendship and family - all the components of a really good story.

How differently we all express ourselves depending on our talents.
After reading the above revues of these two books from the trilogy,I realized how ungifted I am at being able to put into words how these two books touched me. I can echo what V.Fox has said. I began the first book yesterday and finished Seasons of Lost Children a few minutes ago.
How well Karen understands the human condition with all it's twists and turns and assumptions and misunderstandings.
When may we expect the third book?
Thank you forr two glorious days totally hanging on each word.

By Virginia F on January 8, 2012
Format: Paperback
I finally found a book I couldn't wait to turn the pages! (And I had a hard copy in my hands!) Karen Blomain's "The Season of Lost Children" features engaging, thought provoking and sometimes quirky characters who reveal their sensitive stories with more twists and turns than many popular mysteries. Blomain's fertile imagination had me wondering who would show up next, where, with whom and why in a fast moving plot that never slowed. Her poetic and highly visual descriptions painted detailed word pictures. If I had highlighted all the phrases and metaphors I wanted to read again, I would have underlined half the book. I started with this second book in her Fenston Trilogy and it was no problem. I've downloaded the first, "Trick of Light", and can't wait to begin. Lucky for us Blomain groupies, we've got a third book coming out in the future. "Season of Lost Childlren" is a GREAT read! Virginia F

I was drawn into this story immediately. The opening scene is really quite a brilliant way to introduce so many themes in such a concrete, sensual way -- past and present, attitudes toward body, guilt and cleansing, faith and doubt. Quite a lovely jumping off place for the story. The characters are real, their struggles are our struggles. Blomain has the ability to bring scenes alive with textured sights, sounds, smells, and she has an ear for dialogue and interior thoughts that rings through in every scene. A real page-turner (or page-clicker as the case may be with Kindle!) You won't regret your journey to Fenston, PA to get to know these engaging people and their intriguing lives--I certainly didn't

I love Karen Blomain's sense of character and place! She knows how to weave a good story, too. Things "happen" in this book, but it is the people who experience them that carried me along. They are very human! Her description of an elderly nun being bathed by a young novice, a scene that opens the book, is real and palpable. This book is the second in a trilogy about three women from a small pastoral town in Pennsylvania called Fenston. I can't wait for the third installment to see how these special women (and friends and lovers and children) evolve. Blomain is amazing at revealing a path to redemption when the heart is true and good.

After reading A Trick of Light and hearing there would be a second book, or possible trilogy, I couldn't wait to see what was in store for these characters. The author, Karen Blomain, makes her characters alive to the reader. If you haven't read Trick of Light, The Season of Lost Children stands on it's own but don't miss out on traveling life's road with these charming characters. The lives of the characters speak to the simple and complex nature of humanity with all it's entanglements. Highly recommend both creations and hated to put them down.

She did it again! The Season of Lost Children once again demonstrates Blomain's ability to turn human idiosyncrasies into character strengths. Her writing brings me right into the action; wondering if I were Eleanor or Kasia what would I do? I enjoyed the excitement of the suspense that was woven into the book. I thought I knew how it might turn out and was not always sure of what I wanted to have happen. This book is an exciting, quick read which leaves me wanting for more of the people of Fenstin. I will look forward to the third of the trilogy!

Karen Blomain's "The Season of Lost Children" is a worthy followup to her earlier book in the trilogy "A Trick of Light." Ms. Blomain has a knack for creating full, rich characters that you care about deeply. Then, she puts them into an everyday scene filled with ethical and personal dilemmas that keep you turning the page, trying to figure out how things will turn out. Beautifully crafted. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the trilogy when it is published.
