Review

The Last Season, The Story of a Marriage is a wonderful inside look at a faltering marriage, one in which the couple involved began to take each other and their love for granted. Author Marian D. Schwartz is skilled at developing characters that the reader truly cares about, and I found that to be very much the case with Buddy and Ginger. This book would appeal to any reader who loves great fiction, romance, and stories about relationships, flawed though they may be. The only suggestion I would have for a reader would be to make sure you have enough time set aside to read it from start to finish, because once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it down until the very end….. Tracy A. Fischer for Readers’ Favorite

From the Author

When I was growing up, my mother had a subscription to The Ladies' Home Journal. I wasn't interested in the stories or the recipes,but I was fascinated by the column Can This Marriage Be Saved? The column had a simple format: first, the wife would relate her grievances in the relationship; then the husband would tell what he felt was wrong with the marriage.
 
The first time I read the column, the wife immediately had my sympathy. Her husband didn't make an effort to remember her birthday and their anniversary; he belittled her in front of their friends by telling jokes at her expense; he spent weekends either golfing or napping instead of participating in activities with her and their children. No wonder their marriage was in trouble! But then I read his side. She'd plunged them into debt by spending more than he was earning. Although she didn't work, their house was a dirty, disorderly mess. When he'd married her, she was slender. Now she was grossly overweight and unappealing. It was a eureka moment! For the first time, I vividly saw two sides to the same story.
 
Years later an image of three middle-aged adults sitting at a dinner table, an attractive married couple and an unmarried man, popped into my mind. The husband was asking the man what his intentions were, and the fellow replied,"I intend to marry your wife." The image was a gift, and I had to run with it. From what I learned years ago, it seemed right that Buddy and Ginger Middleton should each be able to tell their side of the story.
