Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: There is A Season by Andrea Boeshaar

Book: There Is a Season

Author: Andrea Boeshaar

Genre: Christian Historical Fiction

Release date: September 1, 2021


To onlookers, Carrie Ann Bell Collier might appear to be the dutiful wife, sitting at her unconscious husband’s bedside. But she feels like a hypocrite. Instead of trusting her intuition, she allowed herself to believe Peyton was dead. And then she fell in love with his best friend, Eli Kent.

Except, Peyton wasn’t dead, and now Carrie will do anything to keep him alive.

Christian Historical Fiction is a favorite genre of mine. There Is A Season by Andrea Boeshaar is Book 3 in the Shenandoah Valley Saga. I have not read the first 2 books in this Saga, but the book seemed to flow well. 

Carrie Ann Bell Collier sits by her husband's hospital bedside, hoping and praying that he will get better. She initially believed he was dead, but now wants to help keep him alive. Nurse Hannah Emory might be the one to help Peyton, with a secret medicine she is hoping to treat him with. Nurse Hannah created this medicine and hopes to mass market it if it works. Carrie agrees to allow Nurse Hannah to treat her husband. Meanwhile, Carrie begins to write letters to Peyton, although they never reach him as Nurse Hannah is intercepting them and hiding them. Confederate Lieutenant Colonel Elijah Kent is the Executive of Peyton's estate and while believing Peyton has died, he has taken great interest in Carrie, and Carrie in him, although both never really share that with one another. Eli, realizing Peyton is still alive, holds his feelings in even more. Meanwhile, Nurse Hannah, has suddenly convinced Peyton to marry him. There could be a friend in the midst who could tell Peyton the truth about his life for the past 2 yrs. Wil that friend come through and stop Peyton from marrying Nurse Hannah? Will Carrie and Peyton have the life they always dreamed of and happily? 

I have to say it took me a couple of Chapters to really get into the book, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed the time period, Civil War, that the book was based upon. The characters of the book were all very interesting, although Nurse Hannah, was far from a favorite of mine. She had a controlling attitude and felt that her ways and methods were the best. Carrie and Eli were very strong characters and wanted the honest best for Peyton. Eli really showed his friendship to Peyton when he told his friend all about his past 2 yrs of life and how he had a wonderful wife, Carrie, who was sitting by his side while he was wounded. I really LOVE how the author intertwines the Christian message n the book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes Christian Historical Books! FANTASTIC BOOK!
