About the Book

Author Marie Bishop likens her life to climate. Each season has had its own climate—growth in different ways in each season, different challenges, and different countries. In Seasons, she narrates her story, telling how her spring years were spent in war-ravaged Liverpool, England, where her large and loving extended family provided security. This memoir chronicles how summer blossomed with immigration to Rhodesia—with romance, marriage, and children. And then on toward then end of summer, Rhodesia became Zimbabwe—taking her through to her autumn years, a season of spiritual growth and recognizing God’s healing power. But most of all, Marie recognizes where God has been at work, and she records the times he’s answered prayers and directed paths, times when he’s orchestrated events and changes in her life. Sometimes these events looked like chance happenings, coincidences, but other could only be deemed miracles. She sees them now as road markers, steppingstones, as God guided her on her journey, not coincidences but God incidences.

About the Author

She left the darkness of England after World War II for the sunshine of Rhodesia, transitioning through civil war to Zimbabwe, and now calls New Zealand, home. She was born into a God-fearing family, married a Christian man, but she rejected God when life didn’t go according to plan. Marie eventually recognized the father’s hand guiding her through grief and loss.
