|Seasons of the Heart by Cynthia Freeman|
But then the war started to intervene and I was reading 10 chapters a day! I came to the conclusion that Freeman wanted to feel Ann Coulter's naivity in the beginning and, as the story progressed, feel her improvement in ourselves. Pretty awesome technique, I would say.
It's amazing how a story with a simple plot can reveal depth at the same time. I love the way Ann develops from the naive girl to a successful business woman and I haven't even finished reading the novel!
I love the portrayal of marriage in the story the most. This is a must-read for people under the belief that marriage is perfection. I love Freeman's thematic expression of the walls between Ann and Phillip. Add their daughter, Evie, into the midst and you've got a full-scale family drama.
As a side-not, this is no review of this novel, but a simple expression of my surprise at the depth in such a simple story-line.
