Longing Season, The
by: Christine Schaub

Bethany House, July 2006

In the 1740s, British culture allows few options for the son of a merchant ship captain. And in a time of war, a man with John Newton's experience must serve the king. But Newton--a man who quotes Virgil and curses God with equal fervor--is interested in serving only himself.

Mary Catlett simply cannot believe her childhood friend sailed away on a British warship and vanished in Africa. In desperation, she takes a step that will change her life and call her lost love home. But will he arrive in time?

Newton's odyssey takes him from the West Africa gold coast to the banks of Newfoundland to the heart of the Atlantic before he finds what he's spent his entire life longing for: deliverance.

In an account that challenges popular myth, Schaub continues the MUSIC OF THE HEART series with one of the greatest redemption stories of all time--the story of "Amazing Grace."

Nature conspires against him, tossing the ship like a toy. Directionless—just like his life.

It seems his odyssey will end here, in the cold Atlantic.

Grief and terror grip his heart, but he will not surrender . . . not yet.

She reads the sentence again and again. The first day I saw you I began to love you. He'd written the words, sealed and posted them, then vanished.

She has a choice—turn toward the future, or wait, watching and hoping.

And so begins her season of longing.
