The sequel to “A Season for Living,” “A Season for New Beginnings: The Sequel to A Season for Living” (published by iUniverse) continues the historical tale of a wealthy Southern matriarch and her family members as they embark on a quest to find a new beginning, discovering that change is the only certainty in life.

“After the publication of my first book, a number of people contacted me and said they wanted to continue reading about this family,” author Susan Willis Updegraff explains. “I picked up where the first book left off and brought the characters from 2000 to 2002.”

In this sequel, Caroline Winthrop is more determined than ever to help women and children break free from abusive relationships. In order to do so, she discovers that she must change Georgia law itself, and a new project is born as she works to end the cycle of abuse. As she undertakes this massive project, her husband, Garrett, is presented the job opportunity of a lifetime, forcing them both to look toward the future. Unfortunately, tragedy and change lurk just around the corner.

Incorporating Updegraff’s real experience and knowledge of Georgia, the book delves into a little of the state’s history as the Winthrop’s story takes a new turn. Ultimately, it is Updegraff’s hope that readers find “a compelling story of love, family, commitment and our ability to survive almost anything.”

An excerpt from “A Season for New Beginnings”:
Family is so important. There should never be a mountain high enough or a river wide enough to keep us from love and helping each other.
