Seasons of Sun and Rain

Seasons of Sun and Rain

by Marjorie Dorner

Kim Sisto Robinson: My favorite books ALWAYS deal with Women's Relationships. I can't get enough. I adore novels such as "Talk before Sleep," "Safe Harbor," and "Housewives Eating Bon-Bons." And now I add Marjorie Dorner's novel, "Seasons of Sun & Rain" to my list of gems, as well.

Six women who went to college together in the 60s meet for a reunion they aptly name "Camp Men-O-Pause." They gather collectively on the beautiful shoreline of Lake Superior to reminisce, laugh, eat fattening food, and get reacquainted with one another. It is a delicious story of the way friendship endures in spite of transitory time and distance. The "Men-O-Pause" girls talk about the past, present, and the future; they snicker like little girls about their cute twenty five-year-old waiter; they discuss old age, children, grandchildren, divorces, and husbands.

But it's not all fun and games on the shoreline. Mickey, the most popular, beautiful friend from the college years has been diagnosed with early Alzheimer's disease. She is in denial and will not speak of it. But best friends have the power to break through into the soul, into the heart. And when Mickey finally breaks open...this beautiful narrative opens her petals into full bloom.
