Book Review: THE SEASON OF US (⭐⭐⭐) by Holly Chamberlin
Six months after the death of her beloved father, Ed, Virginia “Gincy” and her teen daughter, Tamsin, pay her mom, Ellen, a surprise visit after realizing something isn’t quite right with her. Will Gincy finally see her mother in a new light?
I enjoyed the story of a mother and grown daughter reconnecting but the overall execution missed the mark for me. I found Gincy to be an odd, judgmental duck (which was super ironic because she thought her mom was overly critical), and she was often heartless and cold in the way she treated her mom. Luckily, her daughter Tamsin’s sweetness made up for it and she was my favorite character.
Location: Appleville, a fictional suburb of Boston, MA
