Meet the characters that live, work, dream, and love in the community of Deepwater Cove.
Best-selling authors Gary Chapman and Catherine Palmer team up to show how four married couples, all in different stages in life, experience the joys and hardships of marriage as examined in Gary Chapman’s “The Four Seasons of Marriage.” In book one, Steve and Brenda face a common problem among middle-age couples: empty nest syndrome. Steve works too much, and with their two children out of the house, Brenda feels lonely and unfulfilled. In order to save their marriage, the two must learn to reconnect.
Readers are also introduced to many charming characters, like Cody, the mentally challenged homeless man that shows up on Steve and Brenda’s porch; Pete, who owns the Rods ‘N’ Ends tackle shop; and Patsy Pringle, who owns the Just As I Am beauty parlor, where much of the action takes place. The series is based on the marriage principles found in Gary Chapman’s non-fiction book “The Four Seasons of Marriage.”
I picked this up as an audio book for a trip with my nephews (thinking it wouldn’t be too inappropriate). I knew nothing of the book when I grabbed it.
It’s VERY Christian and a bit repetitive at times, but overall it was a fun story and easy to get into. I love the uniqueness of the characters, with each one being so distinct and easy to identify. Even my 10 year-old-nephews got sucked in by the creative characters.
Pleasant, easy-to-listen-to, and heart warming. I enjoyed this book a lot.
