About this title

Synopsis:

People and Communities can be forged with strength in their upward struggle as Rachel Bradford and the City of Garland learn in The Tempering Seasons.

Rachel's life is marked with the adversity of life and death trauma in a steel mill, a tobacco company strike, and a flood that devastates the community, while she agonizes in a marriage to a steeworker who fears the mill.

Although she gains stature as a civic volunteer and real estate entrepreneur, Rachel secretly credits the achievements to her mentor and lover, Douglas Hodge.

Her passionate, consuming love affair with Hodge continues during his rise to prominence as a state legilator.

But her financial sucess triggers the ire of her envious sister, Alice, until Rachel finds herself battling to break free of her sister's control.

The Tempering Seasons also is the story of Garland's people: "Hooper" Young, the black mill worker who strives to become a leader in the community and endures the constant threat of racial prejudice and violance; fragile Tina Rose Barnes, who questions life's disappointments; and Glenn McIntire, the tavern owner who blames the city for robbing him of his family heritage.

This is a book about strife, tension, stress and sex, all occurring over the space of 50 years in a typical town in southwest Ohio.
