Now available in softcover! Award-winning author Francine Rivers opens a world full of vibrant characters with a powerful story of hope. In this stunning novel, Francine explores the new life that love can bring to a decaying garden of broken relationships.

Synopsis:

Francine explores the new life that love can bring to a decaying garden of broken relationships.

Synopsis:

Once Leotas garden was a place of beautywhere flowers bloomed and hope thrived. It was her refuge from the deep wounds inflicted by a devastating war, her sanctuary where she knelt before a loving God and prayed for the children who couldnt understand her silent sacrifices.

At eighty-four, Leota is alone, her beloved garden is in ruins. All her efforts to reconcile with her adult children have been fruitless. She voices her despair to a loving Father, her only friend.

And God brings a wind of change through unlikely means: one, a college student who thinks he has all the answers; the other, the granddaughter Leota never hoped to know. But can the devastation wrought by keeping painful family secrets be repaired before she runs out of time?

I LOVED this book! You immediately fall in love with the characters in Leota's life & find yourself reading quickly to see what they will find as they search for roots, a meaning to life & faith. And Leota's brand of faith is a thing of beauty.

I always sigh with contentment after reading this book. It brings to life beautiful, heart warming and heart wrenching moments. It's very relatable for most everyone. Francine Rivers is an amazing author who writes with her heart and writing hand full of faith, and trust in the words God has given her to put down on paper.
