Gary W. Allison about this book: There Is A Season is a book about grief, new found love, redemption, and hope. I wrote the book after a very dear friend of mine called me up as I was driving home from a meeting and told me that he was diagnosed with cancer. I was stunned and speechless. He was very calm, but I could still hear the fear in his voice. I knew he was thinking of his wife and four boys and how they might end up fatherless. I maintained composure until he said goodbye and hung up. Immediately, I pulled over on the busy highway and cried like child for an hour, cars zipping by, unaware of the complete anguish I was feeling.
When I finally got home, I hugged my children and kissed my wife, then through tear filled eyes, told them the news. The story of my friend ends happily. He beat cancer and is alive and well. However, the feelings I had that day and leading up to his treatment were still with me. I started to think about the "what ifs". Eventually, the story of Tom Hardy and his wife Sarah emerged and I sat down and wrote There Is A Season. I just hope that I was able to communicate the grief and the hope well enough. Thank you for reading this book as it is from the very depths of my heart.
