Product Description

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.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From Kirkus Reviews

A fat pancake of a novel, the author's second hardcover production tells the life story of one Ruby Blue--from an abused childhood and youth, to years as wife of a Marine, personal liberation, life in the world of industry, and her golden years in a rural retreat. Throughout the career of Ruby Blue, monster men abound. There's Papa George in their Pennsylvania home, a slasher, smacker, and wife beater, who requires that his daughters repay him, in bucks, for the cost of raising them. Then there's Ruby's husband, Andrew (met in those WW II glory days in D.C.), who is heavy on the verbal abuse and generally amoral. Ruby's lifelong friend Dixie is regularly slugged mercilessly by husband Hugo. Ruby's longtime true love, Calvin, is a gentle soul, but his wife, Eva, is as lethal as the men; fortunately for Calvin, she lacks the biceps. Ruby weathers life with Andrew at Marine bases and puts up with his callous treatment of their two children, but after Andrew admits to having gambled away their son's college money she finally decamps to New Jersey. Ruby soldiers on with Dixie, and their kitchen cookie business goes international in no time. As for the men, they'll get theirs: Papa George is Bobbittized with scalding grape jelly; the late Hugo's ashes get lost in traffic; and Ruby dumps Calvin. But Andrew sees the light. Glop. However, bear in mind the author's smashing success in paperback, including her Texas saga (5 million sold). -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP.

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.

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.

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.

Seasons of Her life is truly wonderful. This character just grows & grows to become such a wonderful independent person. Could really relate with her in many ways. Really great book & obvious Fern Michaels knows how to put it all together to keep our interest from start to finish. One that I highly recommend!

I am reading this book now and I find it very hard to put it down. It is very different from the sisterhood and I really like that it is. But I still love the sisterhood series and can not wait for the next one to come out.. I hope you never stop writing as I enjoy all of your books that I have read.

I have been a Fern Michaels fan for many years but when I picked this book up and read it, I knew it would be my favorite book of all time. One minute I was crying and the next I was laughing. Fern managed to touch every emotion known in this book. Bravo!
