by Maryann McFadden
After seeing this local author at the library to discuss her new book, The Cemetery Keeper’s Wife, I wanted to read her earlier works. The Richest Season is Maryann McFadden’s first book. It’s a journey of two women who leave life as they know it and escape to Pawleys Island SC. Joanna is tired of being a corporate wife but still loves her family. Grace wants to find meaning in death and tries to shield her family. I couldn’t put this down as I often changed my thoughts of how this would—or should—end!
