One Season of Sunshine by Julia London Review

This book is about Jane Aaron, a woman who has a loving adopted family, a wonderful boyfriend that she loves, a career as a teacher and really everything that she could possibly want. However, after her boyfriend proposes to her she suddenly feels as though she does not know who she is. She wants to know who her birth Mother is and why she gave her up for adoption. She has made a few attempts to find out and she hasn't received any results. So, she leaves her job, her family and everything she knows behind and moves to the city she was born in. Once she is there, she finds herself in desperate need of a job. She winds up becoming a nanny for two broken kids who had lost their Mother the previous year. This results in an exciting journey as Jane struggles to find herself and help heal the wounds of the family she is working for.

I absolutely adored this book! It took me only two days to read and I was wishing that there was a second book when I was done. There is not a dry moment throughout the book. The story was very appealing to me personally. I am not adopted, but I am the type of person that would stop at nothing to find out my history. If I was adopted, I would do something similar to what Jane did to find the truth. This book also had a nice Love story entwined into the mix. Jane realizes that she not only doesn't love her boyfriend, but she starts to fall for Asher Price (her employer and the Father of the kids she is responsible for). Despite the love story, this book is not a romance novel and is more focused on Jane's search for where she belongs in life.

Does Jane find her Mother? Do Jane and Asher decide to become a couple? Does Jane find Peace? Well, you will have to read this book to find out more! I have already said more than enough. So, if you are looking for a good book to read, check out One Season of Sunshine by Julia London.
