Book: A Season, and A Time (Southhill Sagas) by Jenny Gillcategories: Book, Baby Boomer, Grief, Loss, Mistrust, Acceptance, Women's Fiction
Jenny Gillabout this book: Baby Boomer fiction, no 6 in the Southhill Sagas, set in Surrey, England, although each book stands alone.
I spent some time with old friends who had lost a child many years ago. The subject was spoken of, but even when it was not spoken of, it always hung in the air like smoke, seeming to dominate every conversation.
Then a couple of years later I got the idea of writing a book about a couple who have lost a child and how their different ways of grieving affect their relationship. This is that story, which is fiction, in no way resembling anyone I know, or have known. It is set over a one year period, and covers Rhona's acceptance and coming to terms with her loss, after all this time, and also accepting the reality that the rift between her and husband, John, is not ever going to heal, but that she has to get on with her life.
