Book Title: Seasons Once Upon My Innocence
Author Name: Lea Ann Vandygriff
Book Synopsis: The rural southern town of Rhinehart was quiet. Sheriff Richards, a potbelly man with a cowboy hat, boots, and a candy bar in hand runs the town with ease and not much experience considering he was elected because no one else wanted it. The once quiet town was disrupted when an elderly woman’s grandsons arrive unannounced. The two older brothers were wild and the other a young teen uncorrupted named Daniel. Daniel longed for a normal family life filled with love and acceptance; however, his brothers made that impossible.
Aubree, a teen with a strong moral compass, befriends those who are hurting. Aubree’s family is the heart of the town. Aunt Ida, the town muscle, goes to the sheriff and demands to know how he is going to deal with the brothers. Aubree and Daniel become close friends helping one another through struggles. Daniel’s grandmother tries to help Daniel to learn to forgive but struggles to find forgiveness in her own heart after repeated unforgivable acts by her grandsons. The brothers use Daniel’s deep desire for family and his innocence against him that ultimately leads him into a trap that will change his life forever.
Aubree is well-loved by so many in the town. She is a go-getter and does not let anything hold her back. She is kind to all, no matter if they are the rude, popular girl in school, the town misfit, or even a person who hurt her. Tragedy befalls upon Aubree and she does the unthinkable by doing the right thing despite what those around her think.
The town of Rhinehart is full of mystery, tragedy, comedy, and disaster. Through everything, young, innocent teens are pulled into secrets, gossip, devastation, deception, and violence that will cause them to grow up to fast.
