Publisher's Summary

What does a child's life-threatening illness cost the neighbors of Cedar Circle? What joys can be hidden in life's greatest tragedies? Behind brightly lit windows and on front porches, marriages are tested and mended, hearts broken, hopes resurrected, dreams released and reformed, values and futures shaped, and faith rekindled . . . or found for the first time.

Taking the best and worst of human circumstances - the tender moments, the laughter, the tragedies, and the triumphs - Beverly LaHaye and Terri Blackstock weave from them a poignant, warmly human novel. Gently uncovering the inner struggles, stresses, and joys that surface among neighbors living on a quiet cul-de-sac, the authors show us the power of ordinary lives being knit into a strong, many-textured fabric of family and friendships.

Wish I could return this book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator is awful it sounds like it has been recorded in a closet I have no idea what the book is about cause I couldn't listen! I have been a member of Audible for years and this never happened before. I tried to listen about 3 times for about 30 minutes each time and I couldn't get into it.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing with narrator again

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She was awful her attempt at male and children's voices was horrible. Her reading of the book is completely flat and pauses in the wrong spot. Sorry I tried to like it.

enjoyable listen!

I really enjoyed listening to Seasons Under Heaven. It held my interest and engaged my emotions. I thought the reader did an excellent job of bringing out the authors intent and I loved the well rendered and different voices she brought to all the characters. An A+!

good story, but...

The story was good, but the person reading it was so bad...she did fine on the women but her awful rendition of mens' voices ruined it for me. I didn't finish it.
