Book Description

November 1994 Wheeler Large Print Book Series
Ruby is determined to have a better life when she leaves her bitter childhood behind for post-World War II Washington, D.C. A job as a Navy secretary soon blossoms into love and marriage. The life of a military wife turns out to be harsher and lonelier than Ruby bargained for, but though it destroys her illusions, it cannot overcome her determination to succeed and find happiness. She raises two children, creates a home, and begins baking cookies in hope of starting a business. After years of struggle, her cookies start to bring in more money than she ever dreamed of. But closest to her heart is the memory of the man she longs for in her soul, a man no cookie can replace . . .

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In pleasant prose fortified by good plotting, prolific author Michaels ( Texas Sunrise ) tells the story of Ruby Connors, who bolts from her hometown of Barstow, Penn., as soon as she graduates from high school, happily leaving behind her abusive father, servile mother and brutalized sister Opal. She gets a civil service job in post-WW II Washington, D.C., where she initially lives with her sister Amber and falls in love with serviceman Calvin Santos. Unable to believe in her feelings, insecure Calvin decamps after a trivial misunderstanding, and Ruby marries Marine Andrew Blue. She bears him two children, but he is a hostile, stern husband and father. Myriad years and countless plot developments go by; Ruby survives various crises, maintains a strong female friendship and uses money left by her beloved grandmother to help friends and sisters. Her final "season" finds her wealthy and free, but lonely and still searching for life's meaning until, in the closing pages, she decides to make herself useful to others. Though Ruby is not always likable and the author passes too quickly over some vital events in the narrative, readers should enjoy this bustling tale.

From Library Journal

With five million copies of her "Texas" series (e.g., Texas Sunrise , Ballantine, 1993) in print, Michaels needs no introduction to romance fans. Here, she traces the exceptional life and loves of Ruby Blue.

Seasons of Her Life is a beautiful story with an equally brilliant concept but the plot itself could have been better. The story at times seemed to be dragging and deppresing because of it's exageration of emotions and dwelling on insignificant points of the story. It definately would have been a better book if some parts were left out but overall it is a beautiful, realistic tale fit for women of all ages. If there is one thing I must say about the author's talent is that THE PROLOGUE IS BRILLIANT, A WONDERFUL PIECE OF LITERATURE THAT WAS THE ONLY REASON I STARTED READING THE BOOK AND KEPT READING TILL THE END.

Not all book reviews have to be nice. Nor do they have to be exciting. I do feel that I should share my personal feelings about this particular book.
Fern Michaels did a wonderful job in the Texas saga. I truly enjoyed those books. I would have liked to believe that the rest of her books would be half as good. I was truly disappointed with Seasons of Her life.
I didnt like it much. The book was generally good to begin with and then it died in the middle. Fern seems to have tried giving it life support, but when the book had been braindead for that long.... it became a vegetable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the best book I have ever read! July 4 1998

Seasons of Her life by Fern Michaels has to have been written by an author that lived it. You laugh & cry & cry some more. You feel like just getting into the book & hurting some of the people. One of the best books I've ever read, if not the best. You relate it to people in your own life. If your lucky you have people like Ruby in your life & not many people do. To recap it's the best book I have ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favorite books July 8 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am an avid reader. I am never without a book to read and this one was just wonderful. I hated it it end. It was a long book but I loved every minute of it. When people ask me some of my favorite books, this one continues to top my list. I have read other Fern Michaels books and some were good and some not so good, but this was by far, in my opinion, her best.
