Meet the characters that live, work, dream, and love in the community of Deepwater Cove. Bestselling 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 nonfiction book The Four Seasons of Marriage.
I've read several of Gary Chapman's books and enjoyed them all. This series is no exception. The characters are easy to get to know and very easy to relate to. This book focuses on Steve and Brenda but everyone in the town plays a part in helping to heal the couples marriage. I like the small town that they live in and how everyone takes care of each other. Many of the neighbors seem overly nosy but who doesn't have a family member or neighbor that isn't?
