Eric used to think he'd live forever, but not anymore. As football season starts, he hopes he can live normally again after the death of his father. But his refusal to face his grief results in anger at his coach, fights with his sister, resenting added responsibilities, and disillusionment with football. It takes a special relationship with Glynnie, who is struggling with the divorce of her parents, to open his heart to love again. .         


We both roared, until finally, wiping tears from our faces, we were out of breath. It was then I noticed the dusty orange line of impending night closing in on us. "We should head back to town."
"Good idea. I wouldn't want to ride this road in the dark."
We glided silently down the hill, enjoying the quiet and the sweet, sometimes pungent summer air. By the time we reached the lake, the picnicking families were gone and the sky was a muted purple. When we pulled up in front of Glynnie's house, I walked her around back while she put away her bike.
"Thanks for taking me up to the fish hatchery, Eric," she said. "I had a good time."
"Me, too."
"And … and thanks for making me laugh." In the pale light of the moon her face took on a polished glow. "I haven't laughed … really laughed … like that for quite a while."
I swallowed hard. "Me, either."
For a moment we just stood there, looking at each other.
Then Glynnie reached out and shook my hand. "Goodnight, Eric."
"Goodnight, Glynnie." I watched her go inside. A girl never gave me a goodnight handshake before. But somehow it felt right.

Professional Reviews

Beautifully Written
“… This book was beautifully written. There were moments that I laughed, got frustrated, and cried, but mostly I felt hopeful that this boy and this girl would be able to comfort each other and begin to heal ….”
~~ The Autumn Review

Triumph After Tragedy
“… I easily connect with stories that deal with personal issues of triumph after tragedy, and the journey they require. The Farewell Season is definitely one of those stories. I will admit that I cried while reading this book because I am that connected with Eric. Yes, I totally bond with a guy. In a book. Who is fictional. Go. Figure …”
~~Lauren, Epilogue Reviews

Thought-provoking, Sensitive, and So Much More
“…this was an excellent book about love and loss, grief and acceptance. Thought provoking, and sensitive this is a book that is better than many in the genre. A nice love story is always good, but this was that and oh so much more. I liked that it ended in a very real way. There wasn't a magic wand cure all end, it was real, and all the more touching and much more impact for that realism. Highly recommended.”
~~ Michael Burhans
