Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twenty-year-old Jenilee Lane whose dreams are as narrow as the sky is wide, is the last person to expect anything good to come out of the tornado that rips across the Missouri farmland surrounding her home.  But some inner spark compels her to rescue her elderly neighbor, Eudora Gibson, from the cellar in which she's been trapped.  To make her way to the nearby town of Poetry, where the townspeople have begun to gather.  To collect from the landscape letters, photographs, and mementos that might mean something to people who have lost everything.  Brought close by tragedy, Jenilee and Eudora will learn lessons about the resilience of the human spirit and the ties that make a community strong.  They will travel to a place they never would have imagined.

Synopsis:

From the acclaimed author of Tending Roses comes a poignant, heart-felt tale of two women--from two different generations--who come together in the face of tragedy, and set off down a road of hope.

Synopsis:

A terrible tornado brings incomprehensible devastation for two women, but also opportunities to see their lives with new eyes, to forgive old wrongs, and to make a new future.
