Four seasons. Four stories. Each one set in the enchanting world of the South. These are the kinds of stories your grandmother told you from a front porch swing.

Ice Melts in Spring by Linda W. Yezak
When Kerry Graham’s boss forces her to return to the Gulf of Mexico where her husband drowned years ago, she feels only spring’s chill and not the warmth of the Texas sun. Can the joy of a reclusive author and the compassion of a shrimp-boat preacher thaw Kerry’s frigid heart?

Lillie Beth in Summer by Eva Marie Everson
With the untimely death of his wife, Dr. James Gillespie believes God has abandoned him. He also believes he’s never met anyone like the young widow Lillie Beth, whose beloved Granny lies dying at home, and who sees a God who sweeps hope through a farmhouse window. Can a young woman whose husband died in Vietnam restore a faith that is all but dead.

Through an Autumn Window by Claire Fullerton
Because her larger than life mother Daphne Goodwyn is dead, forty-year-old Cate returns to Memphis with one thought in mind: something always goes wrong at a Southern funeral. But surrounded by the well-mannered society that raised her, the nostalgic rites of a three-day, autumn mourning bring the unexpected gift of the end of sibling rivalry.

A Magnolia Blooms in Winter by Ane Mulligan
With Broadway stardom within her reach, Morgan James returns home in winter to help an old friend. Maybe it s just nostalgia, but when she sees him again, an old flame rekindles. When she’s called back to NYC to take the lead in a new musical, will fame be worth losing the man she loves?

   

Book Depository


Since A Southern Season is a collection of stories ‘from the front porch swing’, I thought I’d take a look at some gorgeous southern porches with the different seasons. Because we southerners love our front porches (ok… I don’t have one… but i’d love one haha!) and there’s something so relaxing about hanging out there and watching the world go by.

    Love the Mississippi porch with the fan and the wonderful swing. Also like the North Carolina one BUT I’d want the swing facing another directions. We have too many critter visitors to turn our back on them. 🙂 We have a 12 ft. porch across the whole front of our home facing out to the mountains. We have daily visitors from an assortment of birds as well as deer visiting our persimmon trees and chipmunks, squirrels and rabbits to name just a few. Love our porch and it’s just about the favorite part of our home to me. Well, when harsh winter sets in the fireplace in either the bedroom or the living room are hard to beat too.

    Can’t wait for the opportunity to read all the wonderful stories in “A Southern Season”.

    The summer porch in Florida is my favorite! I love porches! Looking forward to reading this book.

    Since summer is my favorite season and has always been the one I love The Summer Porch in Florida is my choice.

    I am a Southerner and have a screened-in back porch that we use year round. I love the Fall porch with the touch of pink 🙂
