Sara, Amber, Poppy and Caitlin have briefly been reunited for the first time in twenty years and it didn’t go well. Gathered against their will in a solicitor’s office it is apparent that they will never recapture the close friendship they once shared. But then the real bombshell is dropped – all four women have been named as beneficiaries by their old friend Gypsy. She has left them her house nicknamed The Dandelion House in the small town of Calingary Crossing. But the catch is that each of them must spend one season of the year in the house before the inheritance is official and they can make a decision about what to do with the house.
I enjoyed getting to know each of the characters in A House For All Seasons. While I did like some characters better than others, each was wonderfully drawn and three dimensional and through the telling of their story I came to understand each woman’s past and the part it played in the woman they are twenty years later. I also loved getting to know the town of Calingary Crossing and appreciated its warmth and charm more with each chapter.
Heartwarming and satisfying, A House For All Seasons is a delightful debut novel that kept me entertained from start to finish.
