    Suddenly all alone in 1894 Kansas, Summer Steadman can't find the employment she needs to settle near the fresh graves of her husband and four children. Bitter against the Lord and refusing to eat, she collapses in despair. Remembering his own painful loss, godly widower Peter Ollenbuger offers her food and shelter for tutoring his 10-year-old son.

    Overall

    I FOUND THIS BOOK SO HEART WARMING AND TENDER. A ROMANCE WITHOUT ALL THE CRUDE DISCRIPTIONS OF SEX, THAT SO MANY AUTHORS FEEL THEY HAVE TO WRITE IN THEIR STORY IN ORDER TO SELL. THIS STORY TAKES YOU TO A DIFFERENT TIME AND PLACE. I HATED TO SEE IT END. IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A CLEAN WHOLESOME CHRISTIAN LOVE STORY, THIS IS IT. I WANT TO READ ALL OF KIM VOGEL SAWYER'S BOOKS IF THIS IS THE WONDERFUL RESULT TO EXPECT.

    Set in Oregon around the turn of the 20th century, Coming Up Roses finds Kate Blakely trying to move on after the death of her abusive husband. With a farm to run and a four-year-old daughter to look after, Kate can barely keep above water, much less consider marrying again. Yet she can’t help but notice her neighbor Zachariah’s kind heart and handsome features.

    What did you love best about Coming Up Roses?

    An abused widow woman, who would do anything to protect her daughter. A man who rides into her life, and teaches her how to trust and love again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The little girl, the man Zeak, and the woman, Katie. I loved the ranch hand, the dog. I loved it all.


    Have you listened to any of Julia Gibson???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think so.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The snake pit.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book, it is one that you will want to listen to again and again..I burst out laughing so many times, the little girl say's the funniest things. Zeak is so strong and patient and love's both of them. If you want a book that is hard to put down, this is it.

    Recently ordained minister Noah Kincaid is used to taking on new challenges, so he has no problem tackling the renovation of the long-abandoned Virgin River church. But that’s before he meets the stunningly beautiful—and stubbornly headstrong—Ellie Baldwin. She may not be exactly what Noah wants in an assistant, but she may be exactly what he needs.

    Overall

    THIS BOOK IS SO, NOT WHAT YOU MIGHT THINK. COME ON, A PASTOR THAT IS HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH HIS EMPLOYEE. AND HAVING THAT EMPLOYEE CURSING IN THE CHURCH WHILE SHE IS CLEANING, THAT WOULDN'T HAPPEN AT MY CHURCH. AND THE PASTOR JUST LAUGHS, HOW DISGUSTING! I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A NICE CHRISTIAN ROMANCE, NOT! I FOUND THIS BOOK VERY DISTASTFUL.
    I WON'T BE BUYING ANOTHER BOOK BY ROBYN CARR.
