Seasons Under the Sun begins where Heart of Texas ends and follows the Franklin Bailey family twelve additional years from 1934 through 1946. The family homestead is in Oak Hill, Texas, a small community on the outskirts of Austin.
Although the narrator of Heart of Texas was the Bailey’s limestone house, each chapter in Seasons Under the Sun holds an account of each character—a blending of short stories. Seasons Under the Sun expands from within the walls of the house in Central Texas and travels with the reader to other cities in Texas, California, Arizona, and spans across the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
The Baileys, both corporately and individually, discover joy, adventure, disappointment, anguish, happiness, dreams fulfilled, and dreams unrealized. Walk with them through this innovative and turbulent time in U.S. history and see how their lives were affected.
