Read full description of the books:
SUMMARY: 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.
REVIEW: I didn't think the second book in the Tending Roses series could possibly be as great as the first, but I was wrong. It is as full of gems of southern wisdom as the first. Although totally different, it continues the saga of the area in Missouri where the first story with Grandma Rose had been set. Full of depth, emotion, and poignancy, the characters and story line were compelling and grabbed the reader's attention from start to finish. Beginning with a tornado that nearly demolished the small rural town of Poetry, the main character, Jenilee finds strength within herself to bring compassion and love to a devastated town that needed to find hope to get started once again. Jenilee and Eudora told this story taking turns telling the story from their perspective and feelings on the recovery. They both found that where dislike and suspicion once reigned that forgiveness and compassion could replace these and build a stronger better community where hope could reside. Lisa Wingate is indeed a gifted writer and weaves each story with the thread of a magical storyteller yet filled with the realism of every day life.
FAVORITE QUOTES: (Once again too many gems to include them all.)
"Yet love has no weight, or size, or substance. It does not know the barriers of time or space or distance, of life and death. Love travels on the wind. Love is greater than the trials and suffering of this world. Love endures all things."
"When your heart wants to grow heavy, it is always best to remind yourself of other folks who have got it worse."
"Every living creature needs to hear the beating of another heart once in a while...Nothing God made on this earth is meant to go on its way alone."
"It's an odd thing when life twists itself around to where the one person you thought you didn't need winds up being the one you need the most."
"Except God don't create accidents. We only think there are accidents because we don't know what God has in mind."
"It don't do any good to dwell on whatever come before. A bad past is like gristle. You can chew on it forever and starve yourself to death, or you can spit it out and see what else is on the table."
"Do not pray for miracles. Only God can know what miracles He will send. Pray for the strength to open the door when the knock comes. The sound is ever so soft. Listen well."
