Fathers, sons, and sports are enduring themes of American literature. Here, in this fresh and moving account, a son returns to his native South to spend a special autumn with his ninety-five-year-old dad, sharing the unique joys, disappointments, and life lessons of Saturdays with their beloved Ole Miss Rebels. After growing up in Jackson, Stuart Stevens built a successful career as a writer and political consultant. But in the fall of 2012, not long after he turned sixty, the presidential campaign he’d worked on suffered a painful defeat. Grappling with a profound sense of loss and mortality, he began asking himself some tough questions, not least about his relationship with his father. The two of them had spent little time together for decades. He made a resolution: to invite his father to attend a season of Ole Miss football games together, as they’d done when college football provided a way for his father to guide him through childhood—and to make sense of the troubled South of the 1960s. Now, driving to and from the games, and cheering from the stands, they take stock of their lives as father and son, and as individuals, reminding themselves of their unique, complicated, precious bond. Poignant and full of heart, but also irreverent and often hilarious, The Last Season is a powerful story of parents and children and of the importance of taking a backward glance together while you still can. From the Hardcover edition.

FINDING LIFE IN THE LAST SEASON Encouragement for the Aged and Those Who Care for Them This collection of short stories and devotions address the pain and loss of end of-life issues in a straightforward but encouraging way. With the youngest of the "baby boomers" now approaching the age of 50, the numbers of those caring for an aging loved one are growing at a staggering rate. With that grows the need for both to be understood, and to understand, this last season of life. While there is little material available to address these spiritual and emotional needs, God's word is most clear on the esteem He places on the elderly. With that in mind, Finding Life in the Last Seasonwas written to speak to the needs of this swiftly growing audience, and to impact the mission field of the elderly living in care facilities. This collection of devotions and short stories were written and shared in care facility outreaches for the aged, sick and dying over a decade of ministry, and have encouraged thousands with the truth that God's love is constant in changing circumstances; and that through Christ, there is life... even in the last season. DIANE DOERING has been a Bible teacher, retreat speaker, radio host, worship leader and is a Licensed Minister. Born and raised in the Chicago area, Diane has lived in Omaha, Nebraska since 1987. Diane and her husband, Bob, have been married for 23 years. They have two children; Matt, age 18 and Cassie, age 14. Diane and Bob Doering are the Directors of Threefold Cord Ministries, a ministry to the poor, the orphan and the widow; which ministers the gospel to the aged and dying in care facilities, and raises support for orphaned children in impoverished countries (www.threefoldcord.org). Threefold Cord Ministrieswas founded by Diane and Bob Doering in 2000 and they serve this work fulltime as a missionary family. This ministry is operated free from debt, with integrity, and with the sole purpose of reaching the poor, the orphan and the widow with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

A wonderful portrait of British upper-class life in the Season of 1939 - the last before the Second World War. The Season of 1939 brought all those 'in Society' to London. The young debutante daughters of the upper classes were presented to the King and Queen to mark their acceptance into the new adult world of their parents. They sparkled their way through a succession of balls and parties and sporting events. The Season brought together influential people not only from Society but also from Government at the various events of the social calendar. Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain chaperoned his debutante niece to weekend house parties; Lord Halifax, the Foreign Secretary, lunched with the Headmaster of Eton; Cabinet Ministers encountered foreign Ambassadors at balls in the houses of the great hostesses. As the hot summer drew on, the newspapers filled with ever more ominous reports of the relentless progress towards war. There was nothing to do but wait - and dance. The last season of peace was nearly over.

The last season in Newport, Rhode Island is the summer of 1941, just before Pearl Harbor. It is the end of an era of social glitter and privilege.

She is swept off her feet by the charming Russell who thinks nothing of borrowing secret documents to raise the money his family won't give him to date Sera. But Sera will not stand for that. Sophistocated thrills and romance energize The Last Season, from the author of The Gypsy Man and The Perfect Machine.
