Romance novel, One Season of Sunshine by Julia London isn't a genre I often read, but it was a good story even though the romance part seemed to happen and wrap up in a short period of time. But maybe that's not uncommon with romance stories. One thing that did bother me though was the five year old son of Asher, Levi, was in the swimming pool a lot on his own despite having a father, a nanny and household staff that could have supervised him and I thought that might be the setting up of a tragedy - it wasn't. Some of the story hinges on Jane's quest to find her birth mother and some of the book club questions ask if it's best to leave questions unanswered. I believe most of us are curious about our parents and ancestors and with having resources on the internet now and Ancestry.com, people are looking closer at where they came from.
From the cover:
Adopted as an infant, Jane Aaron longs to know the identity of her birth mother and why she gave her up. Her only clue is the name of the small Texas town where she was born, so she's come to Cedar Springs for answers.
Handsome ad executive Asher Price lost his wife, the Beautiful, mysterious Susanna, in a terrible car crash eighteen months ago. When he hires Jane as the nanny for his two children, sparks fly. Jane finds herself falling in love with both Asher and his children, but begins to suspect that Susanna was not the perfect mother and wife the family portrays her to have been.
