Strawberry and Sage by Amanda Gale

Set in 1967 Vermont this is the story of two friends. Gabriel Kelly, a carpenter, taking over for his Father after a serious injury. His brother is off to the Vietnam war. Life is simple for Gabriel, and he enjoys the time he spends with his childhood friend Abigail, he always had a crush on her. and still does.

Abigail Wheeler is a college student, liberal, and fighting for the rights of women. She would like to make a difference in the world. She too enjoys spending time with her childhood friend Gabriel.

The two make an unlikely pair, they are different in many ways, yet deep inside they are the same. They both want to be happy. I liked Abigail, free spirited, not afraid to speak her mind and fight for what she wants. Gabriel is more laid back, and content with his life as is, not worried about change. He too is very likable.

The story is fresh, the characters are likable. Their inner struggles, emotions and intents are true to life. Set in the late 60's a time with a lot of change going on in the world, made the story even more enjoyable.

Overall I found Strawberry and Sage a great read and highly recommend to all. The cover art is awesome, or should I say "Groovy" and quite fitting to the story. A true five star read! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0996109021, Paperback)

A historical romance novella for readers of the Meredith series and new readers alike.

Set in 1967 in the lush mountains of Vermont, Strawberry and Sage is a tale of friendship, love, and the perfect strawberry pie.

Gabriel Kelly is a hard-working young carpenter carrying the weight of responsibility on his back. With his father injured on the job and his brother fighting in Vietnam, Gabriel struggles to stay positive. And with the possibility of being drafted looming over him, he can focus only on things that matter, like visiting the mountain, where he regains clarity, and cherishing his time with Abigail, the childhood friend with whom he’s always been in love.

Abigail Wheeler is a bright, ambitious college student who just knows she can change the world. Determined to make good use of opportunities her mother never had, she spends her time campaigning for women’s rights and planning for her future. Her own experiences have taught her that the world is full of promise. So when Gabriel confesses his heart, she is torn, unsure whether they’d be compatible even though she secretly loves him too.

In a tumultuous time when change is the only constant, Gabriel and Abigail long to find meaning and to find themselves. As their friendship is tested by wars both inside and out, they discover that the differences that had kept them apart are actually why they need each other most.
