Fashion Designer, Chrysten Rainer, is a busy, attractive young woman with many female lovers. But wary of love, she doesn't allow anyone to get close. When her closest girlfriend/lover, Angel, dies, Chrysten becomes depressed and realizes that she did love her.
In the wake of her depression, she dedicates a clothing line to Angel. As Chrysten skyrockets to success, women are more easily had, but Chrysten still cannot come to grips with her loss. Then she meets Stephanie and falls in love.
In order to fully embrace her new relationship, Chyrsten must come to grips with her ideas about love and loss.
Rayne 2. Marzett's novella, A reason, A Season, or A Lifetime, is uniquely her own. It is a story more focused on Chrysten's growth then on romance. Given the heroine's meandering affections, the story feels autobiographical in nature. The development of both the heroine and the plot are non-traditional.
Ms. Marzett's prose is poetic and she does a great job of developing believable characters and capturing the spirit of love.
A Reason, A Season, or A Lifetime is a first hand look at the fears and desperate misconceptions that people have grown up with about love. This is by no means your average love story, and that is very clear as you follow Chrysten Rainer in her quest to figure out how to navigate through the rough waters of love and her budding career as a fashion designer. After losing the one thing in life she longed for Chrysten must come to terms with not only the loss but also overcome the mourning and move on.
