There was a time when life seemed simple and not so complicated. In Life through the Seasons, author John Comer reflects on those times. In this personal memoir, he describes life through the eyes of a farm boy growing up in rural Missouri during the 1940s and 1950s.
His family of eight-two parents and six children-lived from season to season, always preparing for the next. Comer tells of life before electricity, running water, and television, while describing his family's relationships, traditions, and values. Most importantly, he recounts how his modest upbringing contained all of the essential experiences for life, health, and happiness, which included Christian spirituality, honesty, respect, and hard work.
In this evocative narrative, Comer has captured the flavor of the time and has brought it to life. Sometimes tried and tested, his family learned to value the troubling times as well as the good. Faith and determination formed the foundation of his being; Life through the Seasons illustrates those simpler times.
