Season of Memories wraps up the Murphy Brothers series, which is one of my very favorite book series of all time. These Murphy brothers and their wives have provided me with some of my most profound reading experiences. Each story has had a focus on some type of spiritual growth that the characters are going through, as well as situations that pulled all kinds of emotions from me. Season of Memories was no exception to this. My heart was all over the place!
I loved the way the author placed the reader primarily in the present, yet provided multiple flashbacks in order to show how Kevin and Helen, the Murphy parents, grew their family. It was not a simple, easy growth either. These two were not believers when they wed and had huge struggles to overcome in the early years of their marriage. The way the author showed what was going on in their lives every few years as they added to their family was precious. I loved seeing them welcome these Murphy men as babies while juggling the various issues that arose in life.
I highly recommend this entire series, all nine books. It is hard to say goodbye to these characters, but I am happy that I can go back and reread them anytime I want.
I received a complimentary copy of this book, however, I also pre-ordered my own copy, too. All opinions are my own.
