Daily Review: Seasons of Change by C.J. Peterson
February 11, 2020
Katie MacKenna experienced one storm after another in her life. When Leukemia stole her mother from her and her father, Katie was only seven-years-old, and her father didn’t know how to cope after such a catastrophic loss.
His response was to shut down and become abusive. The overwhelming devastation which surrounded Katie throughout her journey in life forced her to shut down just to survive as well.
Trust is a difficult thing for many people, but for Katie, it’s virtually impossible. Every life has Seasons of Change.
Will those seasons open Katie to new opportunities or will they forever isolate her in survival mode?
Will she be able to overcome the storms that have surrounded her to answer a call for help?
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance
Storms encase Katie. She’s had a hard time coping and moving on to face life’s new prospects, which will either make her weaker or stronger.
Due to her dysfunctional rearing, she has big-time trust issues. Her dad was devastated at the loss of her mom and didn’t know how to deal with it.
He resorted to becoming an alcoholic and an abusive man. I really delved into this story because it dealt with raw relatable issues.
The characters were interesting and believable. Suspenseful and shadowed with intrigue, mystery, twists, turns and faith in a sovereign God.
An upright, clean read and entirely entertaining.
This is the first I’ve read of C.J. Peterson, and I’m glad I stumbled upon this author. Seasons of Change is a powerful story which kept me glued to the pages.
Kate is struggling. She lost her mother to an illness and her father has taken a downward spiral. Things all around her continue to change and she must learn to adapt.
There were several twists and turns in the story that had me yelling, crying, and sometimes even laughing. I was wrapped up in the story.
I felt a variety of emotions and I couldn’t help but be sympathetic for Kate. Her struggle is real. Kate has a hard time dealing with her feelings toward God because she can’t understand why He would take good, honest people and it keeps happening.
She tries to go on with her life day by day, hiding the painful truth and secrets until one day they can’t be hidden any longer.
Very beautifully written story and I’m looking forward to more from this author
By Reader 2010
The hardest question any Christian asks themselves or is asked by others is the ‘why are good people treated so badly by life’?
There is no one answer as each person must resolve the question on their own. The response often made to others and one’s self is ‘God is good, all the time’, which those not acquainted with God often hear and shake their heads at.
That particular question is one the young person in this story is continually asking. At the end of the book, she is still asking, but things are moving forward regardless of her wishes.
It was a very easy read which flowed effortlessly through the seasons of her life.
An interesting story and worthwhile reading.
