Pink covers on a hardcover novel usually suggest a chick-lit book. The Richest Season by Maryann McFadden is much more than your typical boy meets girl story. The characters are older with the main character Joanna an empty- nester in New Jersey who misses her children.She is a corporate wife whose husband dictates one relocation move too many. After 25 years, she leaves Paul and flees to the one place she remembers being happy, Pawleys Island, South Carolina where she becomes a live-in companion of a dying woman, Grace. Life lessons about love, loss, and one’s own worth are woven into a well-written, fast-paced story with characters you can care about.
