Recently I was contacted by Steven Manchester and asked if I would review his ebook and do a post about the story.  I was not familiar with any of Manchester's other stories and agreed to give my honest opinion.  Here is a synopsis of the book by Laura Schroff:
“Manchester beautifully describes the undeniable love and bond between Billy and his canine best friend Jimmy. The Changing Season reinforces how making one wrong decision can be life changing and the consequences can have a ripple effect that profoundly impacts the lives of others.” – Laura Schroff, #1 NYT Bestselling Author, An Invisible Thread

Initially I found this story hard to get into; I think because it took me back to a slower time, a time of youth and growing up.  I will honestly say it wasn't a book that I couldn't put down, but I found it reminiscent  of adolescence and also of loving dogs-especially one you grew up with.  By the time I got to the middle of the story, I was definitely really enjoying it.  While I wouldn't encourage teens to read it, I felt that it clearly showed the consequences for irresponsible behavior. It also covered young love and the struggles that face a couple.  Many aspects of the story took me back to my high school days.  I felt the characters were developed well and that many could relate to the story.  You can find this book on Amazon.  I am going to look at Mr. Manchester's other books and see if I want to read them.
Disclaimer:  I was provided this book in a PDF format free of charge for my honest review.
