WINTER IS NOT FOREVER

"What are you gonna do after graduation?"

Everybody's been askin' me that question. With graduation only a month away, it seems like I'm the only one in our little school who doesn't know what he's gonna do after the big day. I've been prayin' about it, but I still don't have an answer.

Is God nudgin' me to become a minister? A farmer? A husband? Life is filled with choices. The hard thing is figurin' out what to do! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My grandma gave me the last book in this series and I had to read the others. It was a really good rainy-day read.

The third book in the "Seasons of the Heart" series April 11 2009
By Valerie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The long-awaited Graduation Day is fastly approaching for Josh and his friends. Soon they'll be done with school and they'll leave the little schoolhouse behind forever. Josh's friends all have big plans for their lives, many are going on to college, and his best friend Willie is headed to Bible College in preparation for mission work. But Josh still doesn't have an answer when people ask him what his plans are. He's considered several things, but hasn't felt God leading him towards anything in particular yet.

Graduation day comes and goes, and while his friends all set out to fulfill their plans and dreams, the still undecided and restless Josh is left behind in his hometown. Noticing that his Grandpa and Uncle Charlie aren't getting around as well as they used to, Josh decides to go home to the farm to help with the planting and harvesting for the year. Finally at peace, Josh feels this is where he should be while he waits for God's guidance for further plans in his life.

I don't want to say any more for fear of giving too much of the storyline away. Quite a few events take place in this book, it covers several years of Josh's life. A new family member is born, old friends come to visit (with some shocking news!), and Grandpa comes up with a crazy idea that could change everything at the farm. Through it all, Josh tries to trust God and seek His will for his life.

I would say this book is probably my favorite in the series. As Josh has matured, the books have as well. I really enjoyed it, and it seemed that I could really relate to Josh and some of his struggles. This series continues to be one that would be great for all ages!

Best Series Ever For Me Nov. 25 2014
By Cheryl McDougall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My review is not only for this particular book, but for the whole series of four books. You really should read the series from the beginning so that you can learn how people grow and live from the start of the story. This is one of my favorite reads EVER, and I've read a lot of books. The characters are extremely likable, except for the ones who aren't supposed to be. The setting is a slow-paced rural area, back in the earlier days, where everyone knows everyone else. The story starts out with the narrator as a boy, and takes him through his teen years into young manhood. It is a Christian tale, but that doesn't mean the characters are sterile or dull--they have questions, they have rebellions. Bad things happen, just as in real life. I really like these books--while I've been reading them I keep thinking I'd love to see them as a well-done movie or mini-series. I am going to be so sad to be done reading them, it will be like a really good friend has moved away.
