Overview
Newlyweds Brad and Ashley Hanes are facing their first season of winter. Opposite work schedules, differing views on finances and when to start a family, and Brad's selfish and immature habits are forcing the young couple apart, causing them to question why they ever got married in the first place. It will take a whole lot of help - mostly from their nosy but well-meaning neighbors - for Ashley and Brad to pull their marriage out of the winter blues and into a hopeful spring. As usual, the residents of Deepwater Cove will pop in and out of the story to delight readers. They'll encounter Cody and see his continued independence and growing friendship with Jennifer; Patsy and Pete's escalating romance; and Charlie, a recent widower who is taking on the challenges and excitement of his golden years with zeal.

Reviews - What do customers think about Winter Turns to Spring (Seasons of Marriage)?

Great Read  Sep 7, 2008
What a wonderful story about an older couple in love. You don't see much written about people that are in the last years of marriage.
 
Kick back, relax and spend time with the residents of Deep Water Cove  Jul 31, 2008
Reviewed by Wendy Cleveland for Reader Views (5/08)

"Winter Turns to Spring" is the fourth installment of the "Four Seasons of Marriage" series that started with "It Happens Every Spring." The "Four Seasons of Marriage" principle was developed by the co-author Gary Chapman who believes that marriage is a continuous journey back and forth through different seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. "Winter means difficulty. Marriage is harder in this season of cold silence and bitter winds." This installment revolves around newlyweds Brad and Ashley Hanes who find themselves living separate lives. Brad works construction during the day. Ashley works at night at a country club while trying to run an on-line beaded jewelry business during the day. Instead of waiting for Ashley at home, Brad frequents the local pub, Larry's Lake Lounge with his friend, Mack Lang. This is where Brad finds an abandoned puppy outside in the cold which he brings home thinking that it may bring him and Ashley closer. During the course of the story, however, more things happen between them that make it more difficult to keep their marriage together. The residents of Deepwater Cove grow concerned and try to help the couple through the Tea Lover's Club held at the local `Just As I Am' beauty salon as well as the `Men's Bible Study' at the `Rods-N-Ends.' Only Brad and Ashley's faith in God and the power to forgive can help them through this winter season.

Because I am married, I understood some of the "ups and downs" that Brad, Ashley and the other characters in the story go through. Marriage is not easy. It takes effort, understanding, forgiveness and love. Like the seasons, it is forever evolving and changing.

Even though I have not read the other three books in this series ("It Happens Every Spring," "Summer Breeze," and "Falling for You Again") this read like a stand-alone novel. The characters in "Winter Turns to Spring" were well-developed so you felt like you personally knew each and every one. I particularly enjoyed the relationship between Cody Goss (who is autistic, and an inspiring artist) and Jennifer Moore. I am definitely a fan. I intend to read the other books in this series to learn more about the people of Deepwater Cove.

 
I wish the series would continue!  Jul 30, 2008
A very interesting series of 4 books - I loved them all. Catherine Palmer has done a really good job of developing her characters and making the seasons of marriage come to life. She does a great job with Dr. Chapman's 4 Seasons of Marriage concept. Dr. Chapman's teaming up with Catherine is a winner for all of us. I wish there were more books coming out to continue this series because I really enjoyed the characters and story line. I look forward to more great books from both Catherine Palmer and Gary Chapman!
 
Love Catherine Palmer!  Jul 29, 2008
I read Catherine Palmer's books as soon as they are publishe, and keep all of her books on a special shelf. The four-book marriage series has been excellent.

I knew her wonderful parents, and prayed for them and for Catherine and her siblings when they were growing up on mission fields, but would love her writing even if I didn't have that connection.

interesting contemporary   Jul 3, 2008
Brad and Ashley Hanes are each considering ending their marriage. They are tired of constant fighting over bills and habits. They rarely do anything meaningful together.

Their neighbors want to help the couple, but they have their own relationship issues. That is everyone except elderly widower Charlie Moore, whose spouse Esther just died. As he grieves his loss, the Hanes see someone who has lost his long time companion; both want the same long time from each other as the arguments seem trivial, but will either take that first step towards intimacy or will each assumes it is too late.

The final novelization of the Four Seasons of Marriage is an interesting contemporary look at a couple struggling with seemingly overwhelming issues and major differences re how to deal with them. The story line is well written as winter roars like a lion but spring with its renewal promise including marital vows and love is coming. In some ways Charlie steals the show as the Hanes in spite of their fights seem too sweet. Still this is a fine entry in a solid series that reflects on marriage through the parable of the seasons of life.
