The Seasons of Ecuador


Jon flees his too-comfortable suburban life to reinvent himself and teach English in Ecuador, a place he knows practically nothing about. He gets his wish, but perhaps more than he’s bargained for, as one disorienting experience after another leaves him questioning his ability to make free choices. Along the way, Jon gets to know his roommate Kelsey, who has a bizarre story to tell about her recent trip in the Amazon, muddles his way through Spanish, his new second language, and attempts to immerse himself as thoroughly as possible in an unfamiliar world that begins to seem far more real than the sedate American life he left behind.
