Against the Season: A Novel Kindle Edition
Born lame, Amelia Larson lives in the house that has been in her family for generations. Now she has a decision to make: Should she honor the dying wish of her sister, Beatrice, to burn her diaries? There are sixty-nine in all: one journal for each year of Beatrice’s life since the age of six. Beginning in 1913 and traversing World War I and beyond, the diaries become a moving counterpoint to Amelia’s life as they unpeel layers of family history. As the past starts to impinge on the present, her relations—then and now—come to vivid life. Told from alternating points of view, Against the Season opens an illuminating window into small-town life. As the sins and secrets of a family are revealed through the sometimes-faulty lens of memory, it is a story about the seasons of life and the ties that bind us even beyond death.

At turns funny, angering, erotic without being pornographic, sweet, and terribly realistic throughout. Most of the characters will become beloved friends, and those who don't will at least win your empathy.
The author doesn't insult the reader's intelligence with two dimensional characters, overused cliches, and unnecessary sentiment.
This story was set in a time when people still had to take responsibility for their own actions. And even though two of the main characters are lesbos (I can say that...*I'm* a lesbo), this book is definitely NOT PC. So if you're a liberal, you might want to stick to Alice Walker.
This book will make you *feel*. Some things have been lost in our modern society. Things like honor, integrity, a sense of duty, loyalty, morality. Those things we lost are in this book. Get out the tissue.
Because of the tone of the book, I would recommend it to anyone except leftist Democrats/Socialists. (Like I said, it is set during a time in the U.S. when folks had to take responsibility for their own actions.)
Generally speaking, this story has been told many times before, by other authors about different characters living in different times, and perhaps different countries. But this version is the most satisfying, realistic, engaging, erotic, heartbreaking yet uplifting one I've read so far.
