Reviews - What do customers think about A Season in the South?
Blessed by the Season May 16, 2003
In "A Season in the South" Marci Alborghetti poses the question, "Can cancer ever be a gift?" For her protagonist, Maggie, a woman diagnosed with breast cancer who leaves her family in Connecticut to spend time in Key West, the answer is definitely yes. Maggie's illness, at first devastating and soul shattering, eventually leads to spiritual transformation and healing -- in her own heart and the hearts of her family. As a survivor of breast cancer and a former Floridian, I found this novel to be compelling and inspiring. As Margaret moves from her old life in Connecticut to a new one in Florida, she comes to accept her illness and learns greater compassion. She also rediscovers God.
Love story to Key West May 1, 2003
Marci Alborghetti�s �A Season in the South� is more than just a story, a first novel or a quick read. It�s a journey of the human spirit not just for Margaret/Maggie, but for all of us. It�s a journey we are all on.
She has taken the reader from winter in Connecticut to the warmth and wonder of a season in Key West. Margaret, who has been diagnosed with breast cancer and gone through treatments, leaves Old Saybrook, Connecticut, to confront her fears, her mortality and to find and reconnect with God.
As Maggie, living in Florida, she is able to come to terms with her family, her disease, and most importantly her spiritual self, and her ability to communicate with God. She does not do this alone - she has a supporting cast of new and old acquaintances who help her on the long journey.
For those who know Key West, Ms. Alborghetti has captured the essence of the area and to those who have not experienced Key West, they will. She has awakened (aroused) all the senses to the sights, sounds and smells of this paradise - you can actually hear the sun setting and the hush of the crowd at Sunset pier on Mallory Square. The local people of Key West believe in their philosophy we are all �One Human Family,� and at any time you, too, can join that human family.
Ms. Alborghetti�s book will stay with you long after the last page has been read. This is a love story to God, Key West and the human spirit.
