Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this gently told parable, Jan Karon tells a story of patience, of the special rewards that come from being a little bit different from everyone else, and of the courage to believe in oneself.

In a picturesque and secluded garden, a tiny seed sits in thrilled anticipation of its destiny as a powerful vine, twisting and flowering through the white latticework trellis. But how could such a small seed ever thrive and grow into a strong, healthy, grown-up plant? "Don't worry," Mother Earth says. "God has planned something beautiful for you." But time passes, and the little seed doesn't believe it.

Beautifully illustrated and filled with faith and love, The Trellis and the Seed is Jan Karon at her very best-an inspiration for all ages and an important lesson on God's love for all creatures great and small.

Synopsis:

From the author of the bestselling Mitford Years Series, a book of encouragement for all ages.The little seed was very, very small. How could it ever be a beautiful vine with blossoms? Don't worry, said the Earth. God has planned something beautiful for you. But time passed, and the little seed did not believe it. In this gentle parable, Jan Karon tells a story of patience, of the special rewards that come from being different, and of the beauty that can be found in everyday miracles.

Synopsis:

The little seed spent the winter in a jelly glass on the top shelf of a chinacupboard. It was only a seed and very, very small. How could it ever be a vine with sweet-smelling blossoms? When spring came, the Nice Lady made a hole for the seed and planted it in her garden at the base of a trellis. It felt soft in the hole, but also cold and dark. Don't worry, said the Earth. God has planned something beautiful for you. The little seed did not believe it. But as time passed, and the sun shone, and the rain fell, the little seed began to feel something unexpected. . . .

Synopsis:

In this gently told parable, Karon tells a story of patience, and of the special rewards that come from being different from everyone else. Full color.
