“Just a Season,” (Trafford Publishing, paperback, ISBN: 1425107850, $24.95) new book by Maryland's prominent businessman and community leader, John T. Wills, is a luminous story into the life of a man who, in the midst of pain and loss, journeys back in time to reexamine all the important people, circumstances, and intellectual fervor that contributed to the richness of his life.
This fictional narrative begins with a grief-stricken father visiting the gravesite of his beloved son who was killed in a tragic accident; a moment that he and no other loving parent should ever have to face. As he sadly gazes at his son's headstone and reads what is inscribed there, the dates 1981-2001 bring about an illuminating discovery for him. The tiny dash that separates the years of one's birth and death represents the whole of a person's life. So if this tiny dash were to tell his life's story, what would it say? In “Just a Season,” the dash of this man's life is revealed and what emerges from the pages of this book is a legacy of true benevolence and grace.
